How do I get my custom logo or design embroidered?

This requires a one time $35 set up fee. The fee includes the cost of digitizing your logo into an embroidery file an a sample sew out of the design. Email us a .jpeg of your logo and what size it needs to be. The turn around time for digitization typically takes 24 hours. Once the embroidery design is finished, we will make a sample sew out to ensure the best quality–this sample will be emailed to you for approval before starting your order.

What if I just want a name or text embroidered?

There is no set up fee for names or text. See our “FONTS” selection below for available fonts.

How big should my logo be and where can I place it?

Size: Most left chest logos are between 1-4 inches wide. The largest possible embroidery design must fit within 10in by 17in, this is generally used for full back designs on jackets.
Placement: For uniforms, the standard logo position is on the left chest and names are positioned on the right chest unless specified differently. Designs can be embroidered almost anywhere on most garments though some limitations may apply

Can I get my design embroidered on hats, bags or other items?

Yes. We can embroider design on most hats and bags, we can even embroider some styles of shoes! For other unique items please contact us first. Occasionally items may not fit in our machines.

Can I use a customized font?

Yes but additional set-up fees may apply. If you’re looking for a specific font we can either try to match what you’re looking for or have it digitized.

What's the best size to use for my font?

For embroidery, font size can play an important role with how well the finished design comes out. Small sizes are the most difficult and we do not recommend going smaller than .25 inches tall. Going smaller than .25 inches tall may result in an illegible design. Additionally, we recommend using our ‘ARIAL’ font for very small text (anything smaller than .5 inches tall).

How many letters or words can I fit onto my shirt?

The amount of text you can fit in a design can vary on where the text is being embroidered on a garment and the height of the font. As you can see in the fonts list, each font was written at the same height, yet some fonts take up more width in that space. If you have a long name like ‘Johnathan Edward Smith Junior’ getting embroidered on the left chest of a shirt, it may look better to embroider it in two lines rather than just one.

Does it cost more to use more than one color?

No, our machines are able to embroider up to 15 colors different colors at a time. Some restrictions may apply for small quantities.

Can I use a customized color not listed here?

Yes but some restrictions may apply. The colors listed here are the threads we have readily available in house. We do have thread color catalogs available for alternative options but and additional set up fee will apply for ordering custom colors. We do not provide this option for orders whit small quantities.
