How To Get Your Custom Embroidery Done

So you have a great idea to create custom embroidered apparel for your business. What's next?

1 - Select the Garment To Be Custom Embroidered

The first step is to provide us with the details of your project as you request your no-obligation quote.

What do we need to know?

  • Due date of the project
  • Color of threads to be used
  • Color and fabric of the garment
  • Item you would like embroidered
  • Location of design on the garment
  • Quantity of items to be customized with breakdown of items per size
  • Logo or design to be embroidered 

2 - Receive Your Order Quote

There is no one-size-fits-all when it comes to pricing for custom embroidered apparel.

Some of the elements that influence the cost include:

  • Garment type: For example, t-shirts will range anywhere from $4–$15. Polos can range from $20-$60.
  • Stitch count: A big logo can use upwards of 20000 stitches depending on complexity and is more expensive while smaller logos can take as little as 1500 stitches. 
  • Add-on services: If you have a digitization file for hats but order apparel and bags as well, you’ll need new digitized files for each type of item.
  • Complexity and placement of design: For instance, a frontal embroidery design on a cap will cost less than decorating both the front and sides or back as well. 
  • Bulk orders ‌often attract a discounted price.
  • Additional charges may apply for rush orders.

3 - Digitize Your Design

We convert your logo or artwork into a format, which the embroidery machine can execute as stitches. For this, we use software specific to the machine and add the cost of this service into your quote.

This is a one time fee per digitized file. So if you re-order embroidered polos from us, you will only have to pay the digitizing fee once. 

Design elements that present quality challenges to your embroidered design include:

  • Gradients: The machine can only sew so small. If you are blending colors together of fading a color into a gradient, the transition will be more noticeable than digital or screen print.
  • Drop shadows, distressed or textured graphics: Embroidery is physical. Textured, faded, or distressed areas on the graphic don’t come out well.
  • Small text and too thin lines: Tiny details, such as fonts with serifs, often disappear in embroidered design because of the bulk of the thread. Keep lines clean and simple. The minimum text size for embroidery is .25" high.

4 - Finish and Ship the Order

After your order is embroidered, there are finishing tasks involved with completing it - trimming excess thread, removing backing, folding, and boxing.

We then ship it to your location of choice. Our primary shipping carrier is UPS but we can use other shipping providers as requested. 

What could delay your order?

  • If your order includes garments or items that go out of stock between order approval and ordering.
  • If you request changes to the order mid-production.

We’re excited when we can bring our client’s vision to fruition, as in Don’s experience:

"Wow! What an impressive turnaround on our order of embroidered polo shirts. They turned out perfectly, and we were all left very pleased with the entire experience."

When choosing the right garment to carry your embroidered design well, consider the weight and durability of the fabric.

Lightweight performance fabrics need to stretch and be mobile and are therefore best suited to small designs. On the other hand, heavier fabrics like pure cotton, denim, and canvas lend their weight and durability to almost any embroidery design.

This is because you can easily scale vectors to almost unlimited sizes while retaining your high resolution—meaning all your lovely design details are visible.

The alternative is to use a raster-graphics file, such as PNG (Portable Network Graphic), which doesn’t lose quality or resolution when you open and re-save it. This format also handles detailed, high-contrast or transparent and semi-transparent images well.

    Can you embroider a prayer on a blanket/throw I am going to use during chemo? It is a prayer my grandmother said with my mother every day 40 years ago when I was paralyzed in ICU with guillaine barre syndrome and I would like to have that prayer close to me as I navigate this recovery.
    Thank you, Carol Marinangeli
