Empowering Entrepreneurs with a Heat Press

The Stahls’ Entrepreneurial Training program is a collaboration with the Irving Independent School District’s Adult Education and Literacy program and the Irving Hispanic Chamber of Commerce. Started in 2017, this program empowers students to start their own garment decorating business using Stahls’ heat print technology.

A reporter from Telemundo recently visited the program and produced segments which aired in the Dallas/Fort Worth area in September and early October. One of the segments featured Maribel, an immigrant, mother of four who came to this country with no English skills who now has a new source of income with her T-shirt business.

“I love my T-shirt business, I like that I can be creative and work together with my customer” — Maribel Flores

Maribel spoke with Telemundo about her new business and how she achieved her entrepreneurial skills and English literacy through the program. Maribel spoke with self-confidence about her T-shirt business and how easy was to heat apply a Goof Proof® transfer from Transfer Express® with our Hotronix® Auto Open Clam. She talked about the importance of having the right temperature and materials to avoid damaging the garment and encouraged the community to participate in the training.

Stahls’ is, and always has been, committed to giving people the tools they need – from education, to the latest heat transfer materials and equipment – to successfully start and build their business.
