How do I get my company listed in the National Embroidery Directory?
Being listed in the National Embroidery Directory is free for members of the National Network of Embroidery Professionals. Members log in on the Members Only page to access, edit or create a listing. Listings are reviewed and approved weekly by the National Network of Embroidery Professonals.
What kinds of discounts are available to Members?
NNEP members are eligible for savings like case pricing on apparel as well as discounts on hooping aids, threads, stabilizers, stock designs, emblems, digitizing, even shipping, business insurance and credit card processing – pretty much everything you buy for your business! Members get to buy it for less, saving well more than the cost of the membership in the first few months alone.
