Will I get to see what my chosen design looks like before it’s produced?
Of course! For most embroidery orders, our artists will first create a digital proof of your design. This is a mock-up created on the computer where you can proof your colors, size of your text, your spelling, and all design elements before your order is actually sewn. Once you’ve approved that proof, sit tight! We’ll digitize your design and then provide you with a scanned image of exactly what your design will look like embroidered with thread! That way, you’ll have no surprises the day you receive your order. You’ll know exactly what your design looks like before it even arrives at your doorstep!

Choosing the Correct Garment Size
You can offer a mix of garments and colors to your Scout Troop members. Check every product page for sizing information. The one constant is that their is no size standard across manufacturers or even product lines. In general, 99% of troops should never order youth sizes especially in sweats or jackets. Get a size larger than a t-shirt size for items that might be worn over other layers.
It’s a Challenge
“What shirt size do you want to order?” The best advice we have is ask them! Guessing sizes is a minefield. Every Scout Troop is different.
From our experience when it comes to the scouts, it’s best to avoid Youth sizes, because kids grow quickly. Most Scouts BSA Troops get a mix like 40% AS, 40% AM, 20% Adult Large for the Scouts. If ordering sweatshirts, order a size larger because they are not as long as t-shirts.
Not all medium-sized pols or jackets are the same. Garment types (even from the same vendor!) are often cut differently. In general, all garments are cut differently. Please review the garment detail pages for sizing information.
Ordering extra garments is the best thing you can do to solve size issues. After the garments arrive, some people change the size they need. Having a few backup shirts enables you to keep those people happy. As new people join the group, it’s a great idea to have a cap or polo to welcome them.

All about How Embroidery works
The embroidery process is one of the oldest fabric decoration methods. It consists of strands of various color threads, sewn into the garment to create an image, text, or design. These threads are applied in various patterns, lengths, and thicknesses by a computer controlled machine to produce an array of different visual effects.
