A beautiful, durable, and stylish way to make a point.
Embroidery, in collaboration with Screen Printing, is one of the best ways to personalize clothing and other fabric material. We've been stitching embroidery for over 20 years, so let us help you make you look great!
The most common items that are embroidered include polo shirts, baseball hats, caps, toques, jackets, bathrobes, towels, and tote bags. Some pieces are easier to do than others, and you have to be careful about the type of material you're working with. For example, when working with wicking material, you have to be careful about how tight the stitching is to avoid pull marks. Or, a simple "no no" is to not embroider over top of pockets, because the process can sew the pocket shut, essentially making it unusable.
Pricing for embroidery is pretty much the complete opposite of screen printing. The first part of embroidery costs are completely determined by size - the larger the piece, the more stitches is required, which requires a longer run time, and thusly a bigger cost. I'm sure you can imagine, doing a little embroidery of your name on the front chest piece of your polo shirt (say, 4" wide), won't run nearly as long as putting your name in 3" high lettering across the back.
Pricing is flat-rated for embroidery up to 10,000 stitches (which will easily do a front left chest on a shirt), and then scaled according to the total number of stitches from there.
The second variable in embroidery is having a digitized file. This is a special type of file that tells the embroidery equipment, what colour of thread goes next, in what direction. It's not the type of file just anyone can create, or "convert" from a file online, it's a specialized file that ultimately determines the final look and feel of the finished piece.
And finally, the per piece cost of embroidery is based on the total number of pieces being done. So, it's a little like Costco - the more you do, the cheaper it is to do ;).
What Else Do You Need To Know?
If you've had embroidery done before, and have already paid for a digitized file (so long as you don't change the size of the file) that file can be re-used for subsequent orders. This means, you only have to pay for a digitized file once.
Turn around times for embroidery ranges from 2-3 weeks depending on the season. Sorry, we cannot do same-day embroidery, because we've always got other orders in the hopper waiting to be done.
