Embroidery is the process of sewing a design or logo onto a product with thread. It is typically used to add logos or designs to polos, jackets, and hats.
How does it work?
Embroidery is an age-old process of weaving a design onto fabric using a thread and needle. Today, instead of someone actually sewing a design by hand, a digital file is created that tells a machine how and where to put each stitch. Embroidery works best with simple, low color count logos or artwork. Photographs and artwork with fine detail or small lettering usually can not be embroidered. We’ll be sure to contact you if this is the case and recommend ways we can alter your design or suggest other alternatives.
After we receive your order and review your artwork, the first step in the process is to “digitize” your design. This just means we are creating a digital file that contains instructions on how to stitch your artwork. Once digitized, the file is send to the embroidery machine and the design will be sewn out onto the product. Embroidered logos generally use between 5,000 – 10,000 stitches to create your design. Very intricate indeed!
Digitizing your logo is a time consuming process so embroidery is more economical for larger orders.
