Ribbon Cutting: Generations Embroidery

[slideshow_deploy id=’79507′]

Thomas Gentil, the owner of Generations Custom Embroidery, recently joined the Colusa Chamber of Commerce and held a Ribbon Cutting to celebrate the growing success of his business and its relocation.
“I know this isn’t exactly a grand opening,” said Gentil. “Considering I have been here for a little over three and a half years now, but I joined the chamber about three months ago, and I thought it would be a great idea to have this event to introduce myself and my brand.”
Gentil expressed that his business, Generations Custom Embroidery, offers various services including custom embroidery, direct to garment printing, custom patches, Letterman jackets, and much more.
Gentil said that he specializes in full-color photos on t-shirts. “Most people are unaware that this can be done,” he said. “We can take any photo or design and put it on a t-shirt with its laser printing process.”
Cost effectiveness is one of the benefits of direct to garment printing, Gentil said.
“If you were to take a full-color job to a traditional screen printer, it would usually be more expensive, or the company would tell you the job cannot be done,” he said.
For the better part of a decade, Generations has been a part of the downtown business atmosphere in Colusa. In 2012, Gentil purchased the company from its prior owner.
“My daughter came to me and said she had three offers on her business and Thomas was her choice,” said Mary Womble, the mother of former owner Cathy Bliss.
Womble also stated that Gentil was a creative young person and she felt he would do a great job with the business and develop it into something great.
Gentil commented that his interests in the garment printing and embroidery stemmed from an art class in high school.
“Many of my friends in high school wanted to graduate and leave town because there are not many opportunities here,” said Gentil. “However, it took me to leaving town to realize I wanted to come back. I want to be closer to family, but I wanted to grow and be a part of something here in my hometown.”
Generations Custom Embroidery is located at 761 Main Street in Colusa and can be reached by calling (530) 458-2265 or email generations650@gmail.com ■
