Embroidery is the process of decorating fabric or other materials with needle and thread. It is a traditional method of adding designs to garments and is known for its durability and long-lasting quality.
It is the best method to decorate certain garments such as hats, outerwear, employee uniforms, patches, and heavy fleece, as some fabrics and garment types don’t lend themselves to screen printing.
One of the main benefits of using embroidery is the low setup costs and the low cost of materials.This means that you can accurately represent your brand without having to spend a fortune to do so. The low cost of embroidery makes it ideal for start-up companies and large organisations with a large workforce.The cost of embroidery is determined by the stitch count. Therefore it costs more to embroider a large, dense logo than it would be to embroider some script or text for breast position.
How does the embroidery process work?
1. Artwork Submission: To begin the embroidery process, simply submit your artwork to us in a high-resolution format (300 DPI). We accept JPEG, PNG, PDF, PSD, EPS and AI files. 2. Artwork Review: Once we receive your artwork, our team will review it to ensure that it meets our printing requirements. We will then provide a digital proof for your approval. 3. Thread and Colour Selection: We offer a wide range of thread colours to choose from. We will work with you to select the best colours for your design.
4. Digitizing: Before we can begin the embroidery process, we must first convert your artwork into a digital embroidery file. This process is called digitizing and requires specialized software and expertise. 5. Embroidery: Once the digitizing process is complete, we use an embroidery machine to stitch the design onto the surface of the garment. Our embroidery machines are capable of producing high-quality designs with a high level of detail. 6. Quality Control: Once the embroidery is finished, we perform a quality control check to ensure that the final product meets our high standards.
Our standard turnaround time for embroidery is 7-10 business days from the time of proof approval. Rush orders may be available for an additional fee.
