What is embroidery?
Our skilled embroidery experts use precision machines to sew colorful threads onto a cap, shirt, patch, or other item to bring your design to life.
This is what you see when you think about monograms, patches, and many other colorful designs made out of thousands of stitches of thread.
We offer many kinds of embroidery on a variety of products.
Plain text: names, monograms, etc.

What is digitizing?
We need to digitize a stitch map of your design so the machines know what to do. A digitized embroidery file is not simply a different format like EPS or PSD, etc, it’s actually a “stitch map” which tells the machine where each and every one of the thousands of stitches should go.
Digitizing is a skilled, manual task requiring and experienced team. You can’t just “save as” and get a high quality embroidery file. Most graphic artists do not have this skill, it’s a special niche.
Embroidery is perfect for professional-looking logos and names on shirts and uniforms, unique designs on hats, monogrammed objects, and for classy individualized gifts.

How do I order?
Pricing is based on several factors, including:
- Shirt / garment brand and style
- Shirt / garment color
- Number of embroidery locations on the item (for example: front, back, sleeve, etc.)
- Number of thread colors per embroidery location (our team can help you determine this, it’s based on size and complexity of the design)
- How many garments per design (the more we sew at once, the lower your price)
- Minimum order quantity generally starts at 12 patches, depending on details of your project.
