Your Promotional Marketing Partner

About Us

When EmbroidMe of Poughkeepsie, New York, opened its doors in 2005, local residents Diane and Scott Pawenski embroidered their first shirt and had no idea of just how successful their new franchise would become. The Mid-Hudson Valley hadn't seen anything like it—a franchise that would serve as a promotional marketing partner to local businesses, all while providing the ultimate customer service experience.

Nestled in the Poughkeepsie Plaza, EmbroidMe quickly became the region's premier provider of decorated apparel and high-quality promotional products with an emphasis on its unique multi-step process through which clients are guided by a local promotional marketing expert in an effort to help them fulfill their marketing strategy.

With early success, the demand for services grew and the need to increase the size of its resource center quickly became apparent. In 2008, when many businesses were down-sizing, The Pawenski 's were adding additional manufacturing space in order to meet their increased demand. Just three years later in 2011, they more than doubled their size, adding more staff and bringing even more services under one roof.

Today, with 10 employees and a 4,200 square foot Resource Center, EmbroidMe now offers screen printing, laser engraving and the printing of signs and banners in addition to its original menu of services. This has allowed them to serve more customers than ever before. From large corporations to non-profits, from schools to first-responders, EmbroidMe's customers represent a complete cross-section of the Mid-Hudson Valley business community.

Only EmbroidMe offers the largest selection of name brand labels such as Nike, Adidas, Charles River, Holloway, Game, Port Authority, Ultra Club and Devon & Jones--all in a convenient, full-service resource center.

EmbroidMe has over 800,000 promotional products that are perfect for helping you make a lasting impression. From pens, to coffee mugs, to mouse pads, your only limitation is your imagination. It’s never been more convenient or cost-effective to get your company’s name out there.

As one of the most successful EmbroidMe Franchises in the country, it's no wonder EmbroidMe of Poughkeepsie has a long list of awards to its credit. In 2009, EmbroidMe was inducted into the EmbroidMe Hall of Fame. 2012 has proven to be a banner year for the company. To date, EmbroidMe has received the EmbroidMe President's Award, the Dutchess County Regional Chamber of Commerce Headliner Award, the 2012 Franchisee of the Year Award from the International Franchise Association and the Dutchess County Economic Development Corporation Business Excellence Award.

EmbroidMe is a proud member of the Dutchess County Regional Chamber of Commerce and is also very active in the Southern Dutchess Exchange Club.

Most impressive is Scott and Diane Pawenski's committment to the very community that helps their business thrive. EmbroidMe is a sterling example of business philanthropy with a reputation for serving local non-profits and supporting local fundraising events.
