Marketing & Advertising

Dave and I purchased The Lettering Machine back in 2002.  It has been a family owned business for 30+ years and that is the way we kept it.  All 3 of our Daughters (Carolyn, Jessica and Samantha) have worked here at some point during our ownership.  We came into this business with backgrounds from many other fields (ie. Veterinarian Technician, EMT, HVAC etc) and have learned a lot in our 16 years here as far as business ownership, Embroidery, Screen printing and other ways to make your business name known.   I love working with the customers to help them achieve a look that represents their business properly at a cost that will work within their budget.

Hi, I'm Carolyn.  I am a Mother of 3 beautiful girls, Clara (7yrs), Callie (5yr) and Charlie (17mos).  My wonderful husband Chris, is my support system and helps at the shop whenever he can.  I deal with the Marketing and Promotion side here at The Lettering Machine, as well as quoting and customer service.  Since 2002, when my parents, Dave & Tina, bought the shop, I have been very involved, but in 2008 I came on board full time.  We are always educating ourselves with new decoration techniques and keeping up on the latest trends.   This way we are able to throw out new ideas and suggestions, as well as make an idea into reality.  The best parts of working at The Lettering Machine are the time I get to spend with my family, seeing our work out on the streets and watching businesses grow because their name is getting noticed more with the help of Embroidery, Screen Printing and the other decoration options we provide.

Thank you for giving us the chance to work with you! :)
