Your Custom Embroidered Logo
One of the most important pieces of your business is your logo. It's your image, it's your brand, and it's your company's signature. We appreciate what it means and strive to make it look great.
Send us your logo
Getting your logo to our embroidery shop is easy, just click here and attach it to this email
. We can read most formats, but jpg, tiff and eps files work the best. If you don't have it in one of these formats, send us what you have and we will do our best to make it work.
If you know the PMS colors that make up your logo, great! That helps us a great deal. We will try our best to make a PMS match. Keep in mind, when comparing thread to ink there may be some variances.
Many people also ask us about use of colors. In the case where you desire the logo to be more subtle, you may choose a tone-on-tone effect for your embroidery. That is were the thread color used on the embroidered logo closely matches the garment color. The effect is subtle and classy.
If you wish to use different colors, please let us know. If you aren't sure what colors to use we will be happy to make some suggestions.
Digitizing is the process by which we tell our computerized embroidery machines where to sew each stitch in order to recreate a logo on a garment. When a logo is digitized, our experts use a computer program to accurately convert your logo into a system of stitches that the embroidery machine can read.
Recreating an image with needles and threads is different than printing it with ink on paper. We work very hard to make sure your logo looks just as it does on paper. However, because thread and material are less precise than ink on paper, some variations may be required. However, you will approve the image before it goes into production.
Cost to digitize is $60 if your order is less than 65 pieces, or free if you order is more than 65 pieces (up to 6,000 stitches). This is a one-time fee. Once it is done, we can generally use it for future orders with no additional cost. On occasion, we may need to rework the logo for a different application than what it was originally digitized for (i.e. a jacket back). We will never do this without your approval first.
Logo size once embroidered
Maximum embroidery sizes are 4” high x 3.5” wide for a left chest and 2.5” high and 5.0” wide for a cap. Most embroidered logos fall within these size ranges. We will size your design appropriately based on our experience. Sometimes this can present a problem with small text; if so, you will be consulted before production begins. The size of many designs is dictated by the smallest text in the design.
The smallest text we can embroider with any accuracy is about .25” tall. We can make adjustments to your logo design to compensate for slight variations.
A vast majority of logos are embroidered on the left chest of the garment. However, other locations are gaining in popularity such as the left sleeve, cuff, lower sleeve or the yoke (on the back under the collar).
We will discuss and confirm logo placement with you during the acknowledgement process.
After we have your logo digitized, we will send you a picture of it for your approval. We will not begin production until we have your approval. That way you will know exactly what you are getting when your logo apparel arrives - no surprises.
