A new embroidery and screen printing business has opened in central Tucson.

Direct Embroidery has rented 1,203 square feet at 3601 E. 44th St. and is open for business.

Max Fisher and Rob Glaser signed the rental agreement with Picor on behalf of the owner and landlord Presson Corp. negotiated.

The owner Carmen Gallego, who had been open for about two months, decided to start her own business after working for an embroidery company for three years.

“I used to work at least 65 hours a week so I figured I might as well work for myself,” she said.

Aside from custom embroidery, the company offers vinyl and screen printing.

Anyone interested in how the business works is welcome, Gallego said.

“I love showing people what I’m doing,” she said. “No appointment is required.”

The opening times are Monday to Thursday from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. and Friday from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m.



Orders are placed with Direct Embroidery using a multi-head electronic embroidery machine.
