Embroidery is the stitching or sewing of a digitised design. Ideal for custom polo shirts.
Embroidery creates an impression of quality & style ideal for staff uniforms, workwear, military crests, leavers hoodies etc. Excellent for heavier items such as polo shirts and sweatshirts.
Once we have your logo or design digitised in an embroidery software format, it can be loaded into our computerised embroidery machines for sewing. Each product that comes off one of our machines is individually checked for compliance with our quality standards. Our goal is to ensure that your products are representative of our highest quality service every time.
Embroidery will normally outlast any garment onto which it is applied. Recent advances in embroidery software mean that design /set up costs can be low and the new generation of machines run quickly with any number of colours being applied in a single operation. However large designs can be time consuming to produce & so costs can increase significantly relative to the size.
PROS – long lasting, looks expensive, full colour at no extra cost.
CONS – more expensive than printing, especially for large designs & not suitable for light materials.
When you place an order for embroidered clothing there are two charges:
The first is an embroidery setup charge which covers the cost of having the design digitised and a jacquard created. This is a one-off charge as once we have done this your design is stored and hence if you place an order in the future there will be no need to pay another setup charge. Embroidery setup is normally charged at £10 per 1000 stitches (ex VAT). An average company or club logo is approximately 5000 stitches.
