Madison Nurse Officially Launches Custom Vinyl T-Shirt Business

The pandemic seems to be turning into a natural “pivot point” for many individuals and businesses alike who have reassessed various parts of their daily routines/operations and made adjustments moving forward. Madison resident Elizabeth Golden can identify with this. 

Golden, a mother of two young boys and part-time nurse, has always found joy in being creative, making things, and using her eye for design. She recently found though through self-reflection and conversation with her spouse that she wasn’t making time to enjoy hobbies anymore after “losing herself” in her career and mothering. 

Though those two roles are her most prized, she decided to reassess and began being intentional about carving out time to design and draw on the side. 

She soon began making vinyl press t-shirts for family, friends, and co-workers who enjoyed seeing the things she’d made and posted on social media, and, in the blink of an eye, an accidental business was born: Raising Little Goldens. 

Raising Little Goldens: Custom Vinyl Press T-Shirts Raising Little Goldens is an online vinyl press t-shirt shop that specializes in custom designs for customers of all sizes.  Golden's online shop features over a dozen eye-catching designs available for purchase, with a current turn-around time of five to seven days from the time of purchase.

Her shop also features a “custom box” option where customers can describe in detail the type of design or occasional he or she is shopping for in the comment box. Golden will then design a few options to send the customer for selection.

Golden shared that all of the shirts are triple pressed, very soft, with “nothing sticky” like some vinyl shirts feel.

She has already received a few bulk orders, which she’s decided to outsource to a bigger company to make sure that they are all done in a timely manner as well. She doesn’t want the size of the order to hold her back from designing and creating for anyone. She’s excited to bring all of her potential customers’ visions to life, whether that be for an individual’s first birthday or a large company’s event or uniform.

As a mom, the durability of the shirt is very important to her. 

“I want to buy things for my kids that will not only last many washes, but that may be able to be passed down as well. That’s the type of quality I’m going for.”

She explains that she heavily researched the right price point for her shirts and believes her prices are competitive with comparable shops online. 

In the future, she plans to expand her shop to home decor, wooden signs, and more. 

Finding Balance

When asked how Golden plans to balance this new business venture, she laughed a little and said that a co-worker gave her some really applicable advice. 

“She talked to me about making time for myself and doing things I enjoy. She taught me to wake up when the sun comes up so that I have time for myself to ease into the day before my kids get up. I get everything listed out that I want or need to do that day, and then I’ll tackle a chunk of it during nap time or after the kids are in the bed that evening.”

Golden says that this routine has allowed her to build this business slow and steady with a focus on doing things “the right way”.
