WHAT IS EMBROIDERY?
Embroidery is an age-old process of weaving a design onto fabric using a thread and needle. Today, instead of someone actually sewing a design by hand, a digital file is created that tells a machine how and where to put each stitch. Embroidery works best with simple, low colour count logos or artwork. Photographs and artwork with fine detail or small lettering usually can not be emboirdered. We'll be sure to contact you if this is the case and recommened ways we can alter your design or suggest alternative printing methods.
After we receive your order and review your artwork, the first step in the process is to "digitize" your design. This just means we are creating a digital file that contains instructions on how to stich your artwork. Once digitized, the file is send to the embroidery machine and the design will be sewn out onto the product. Embroidered logos generally use between 5,000 - 10,000 stiches to create your design. Very intricate indeed!
There is a set up fee of $45 for embroidery and as the process to digitize and set up your artwork takes a bit longer it is more cost effective for larger orders. We have a minimum order of 12 garments per logo/artwork.
If you have different artwork/logos you'd like embroidered in the one order, it will require a set up for each artwork/logo.
