Embroidery

What is Embroidery? 

Embroidery is the process of using needle and thread to decorate fabric. It’s the best shirt customization choice for a professional look, whether it's a business uniform or a personalized bag. We can emborider you logo on shirts, polos, hats, jackets, and more!

 

Uses for Embroidery:

  • Personalization (names and monograms)
    • Personalize your garments with your own name or monogram.
  • Company logos
    • Create a professional-looking business uniform with a polo or work shirt embroidered with your company logo.
  • Customize a variety of items
    • If you can put a needle through it, we can probably embroider it.
      • Shirts, polos, hats, jackets
      • Bags (totes, backpacks)
      • Towels
      • Aprons and bibs

The Embroidery Process

Embroidery involves converting your digital design into sewn stitches of colored thread on fabric through our embroidery machine. It’s a complex process, but we can make it easy for you!

What is Digitizing?

Before your logo or design can be embroidered, it must first go through an extensive “digitizing” process, which converts your logo into a format that is readable by our embroidery machine

Embroidery Thread Colors

We have a lot of different thread colors to choose from when it comes to embroidery. From basic colors to shiny and neon threads!

Embroidery Design Tips

Not all logos will be suitable for embroidery, so we have a few design tips to help you make sure that your design will be ready for stitching.

 

Embroidery FAQ

How much does embroidery cost?

The price depends on the design you need embroidered, how many items you need embroidered, and the type of item. There is also a $25 digitizing fee to convert most logos for embroidery. Please email us with the details of you order and we can quote you a price.

Do you have any minimum order requirements for embroidery?

No, we can embroider as few as 1 item for you. Price per item will depend on how many you’re ordering, however.

What do you need to digitize my design?

Just send us your logo in any digital format, such as a JPG, PNG, AI, EPS, or PDF format. The higher resolution, the better. Some logos may not be suitable for digitizing/embroidery, so be sure to check at our embroidery design tips.

What if my logo is already digitized?

You can avoid the digitizing fee if you already have a digitized logo. Please send us the digitized file so we can make sure it is compatible with our machine.

How big can an embroidered logo be?

For an upper left chest design location on something like a polo shirt, the maximum size is 4 inches x 4 inches. Caps can vary depending on the type of hat, but typically the maximum embroider dimensions are 5.5 inches wide by 2.25 inches tall for the front of the hat. For a large embroidered jacket back, the maximum dimensions 10 x 10 inches. Please be aware that large logos may incur additional chargers.

How long does embroidery take?

Typical turnaround time is 3-5 business days.

Can I mix different items to be embroidered?

Yes, you can mix different items as long it is the exact same design (including size) that you need embroidered.

Can I provide my own items for embroidery?

Yes, absolutely.

Can you do patches?

We only do direct embroidery, so we cannot make individual embroidered patches.
