How will I find customers and make sales?
In fact, we have written a complete report on this called “Discover The Top 9 Revenue Streams in Custom Rug Fabrication”
Do I need to have experience in the flooring trades?
No. But it helps. We started in the carpet cleaning trade before we started making rugs. We knew how to clean rugs and do a few carpet repairs and that was about it. This is a trade with easy entry. Carpet is a soft floor covering and quite forgiving to work with. This is opposed to, say, hard surfaces like stone and tile that require more precision. Of course, as quality becomes your main focus, the need for precision in rug making will too. In time.
What tools will I need and how much will the tools cost?
Is it possible to use these rug making techniques for wall to wall carpet and staircases?
Is this work physically demanding?
It depends on your target market. If you are doing large scale rugs, for say, locker room projects for pro sports teams and schools. Then you will have to contend with those challenges. We’ve produced many large scale rugs for schools and universities. Smaller rugs are much easier to handle and less physically demanding. You can pick and choose your markets. Choose markets that resonate with you. Have fun with it!
Do I need to stock any inventory?
Great news. The higher costs of building an inventory are unnecessary. In the beginning stages you will want some practice materials. When you make sales, you receive a deposit or payment in full. Then buy your materials and produce your project. No money out of pocket needed. You can start this on a lean budget if you have to.
How are these custom rugs made? Can I make them from home?
I am not the creative type, in fact, I have not a creative bone in my body. How can I possibly succeed in a creative business?
Can you trace a design from a template? If so, then yes, you can succeed in this field. With so many fantastic resources available online, you have endless options. If you are uncomfortable creating designs, then let others do it for you. BONUS: We will supply you with a design catalog featuring 50 outstanding rug designs. Use and re-use as often as you need. PLUS we can show you where to find many more.
