Embroidery is becoming an increasingly
popular way to decorate shirts. The big advantage to embroidery – besides
providing a more professional look – is the ease of set up for multi colored
logos. Prices in embroidery are based on the size of the logo not how many
colors are in it. So, for companies who have a multi-color logo,
embroidery is often the way to go.
All designs that are to be embroidered first need to be
digitized. Essentially this means that someone needs to redraw the design
stitch by stitch so that the embroidery machine knows how and where to put each
stitch. The first time digitizing usually costs $40 for a standard left chest
or cap front logo. But remember, you only pay this the first time.
The digitized logo is the loaded in to the embroidery
machine and colors are assigned to each needle. A sample sew out is done on a
piece of sample fabric for customer approval.
Each garment is then hooped individually and loaded onto the
machine. The design is then embroidered onto the garment. Our machines are
capable of sewing over 1,000 stitches per minute! The average design is
around 9,000 stitches and takes about 10 minutes to completely sew out.
Q: What is the typical production
A: Most embroidery orders take 10-14
business days, start to finish. This can be slightly longer if the garment that
you order is unavailable from local warehouses or if it takes longer than usual
to get your final art approval. We will
work with you to meet any deadlines that you might have and rush orders are
Q: How can I get a quote?
A: Because there are so many
variables, it’s hard to give online quotes.
The best way is to call, email us or use our online quote form.
Q: Do you price match?
A: Generally speaking, our prices
are lower than anyone else in town. But,
if by chance, you do find something cheaper, bring us a written quote from
another screen printer and we’ll run it by the owner and see what we can do!
Q: How do I place an order?
A: To place an order, just give us a
call or stop into our showroom at 806 Nichols Blvd. We’ll take it from there!
Q: What’s the process for placing an
A: The first step is deciding how
you want your shirts to look. When you
come in to the showroom, your customer service rep will help you pick a garment
style and color and get your order written up.
At that time, you will also discuss your design and the art and
digitizing departments will begin working on your design. Your shirts will be ordered from the warehouse
as soon as you give us sizes. You should
have an email proof in 3-4 days that will show you a sewout of your design.
This will be your design sewn out on a piece of sample fabric to show colors
and how the stitches will lay. Once we
receive approval on the sewout, we’ll move your order to production. The whole process for a first time orders
generally takes 10-14 business days.
Repeat orders are often ready faster, since we don’t have to repeat the
digitizing and approval process.
Q: Do you charge for PMS color
A: We have dozens of colors
available and are able to match almost any PMS color with our standard
threads. If you require a custom dyed
color, please inquire about prices.
Q: Can you do metallic, glitter or
other specialty colors?
A: Yes, however restrictions apply. Ask
your sales rep to show you what we have available. We can also order in custom colors if you
need something specific. Q: What are your requirements for artwork submission? A: If you have a vector file (.ai,
.eps, etc.) of your logo or artwork, that’s awesome! But if not, don’t worry, we can use whatever
