Embroidery: Embroidery utilizes computerized
sewing machines that reproduce your artwork or logo on garments.
Digitizing: In order to embroider an image onto a garment the image must first be digitized into an embroidery format that our computerized embroidery machines can read. The digitizing cost is based on the number of stitches in the final image, $25 on up - depending on the size and the detail of the image. When an image is digitized, our experts use a digitizing computer program that assist in accurately converting your logo or electronic artwork into a system of stitches that the embroidery machine can read. Monogramming (doing text) is much cheaper to digitize.
Minimum order for Embroidery is 12: It is only cost effective to embroider quantities of 12 or more. Costs associated with embroidery are the cost of digitizing, the total number of "stitches" per shirt and the total quantity of items. Ordering larger quantities helps offset the cost. If you're looking to have a small quantity you may want to consider having it screen printed instead.
Stitch Count: Embroidery costs are based on how many stitches are needed for the image. The larger the image the more stitches. If you have a logo with large filled areas, you can expect for your cost to be more than doing just text. The average left-chest or hat logo is about 8000 stitches.
