What is Embroidery?

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.

What types of garments are typically embroidered

Items that are most commonly embroidered include: ball caps, polo shirts, jackets, and non-garment items like backpacks and blankets. An embroidered design is typically fairly small and is placed on the left chest of a garment, or centered on the front crown of a cap. Embroidery tends to withstand repeated washings and compliments a clean, professional look.

Custom Designs

We can do a fully custom embroidered design to fit your needs. From a drawing, a previous logo, or just an idea, our talented artists can create anything! There is no extra charge for custom embroidery designs! Minimum of 10 garments on the initial order of any design.

Will I get to see what my 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!


How do I place an embroidery order?

Once you’ve chosen your garments from our website, just click the “Order Online” button located on the garment page. This will bring you to the order screen, where you can choose additional garment style(s) and color(s), enter your sizes and quantities, and tell us your design details. We will get started on your design right away!

Choosing the Correct Garment Size

You can buy a mix of garment, colors, and sizes at no additional cost. Check every product page for sizing information. The one constant is that their is no size standard across manufacturers or even product lines. Get a size larger than a t-shirt size for items that might be worn over other layers.

It’s a Challenge

Questions about ordering apparel sizes

“What shirt size do you want to order?” The best advice we have is to ask everyone who is receiving an embroidered garment. Guessing sizes is a minefield. Every person is different. If ordering sweatshirts, order a size larger because they are often not as long as t-shirts.

Size Variation

Reviewing garment details and sizing before finalizing your order

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.

Order Extras

Need to add more shirts, no problem. We always recommend ordering extras

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.

Embroidery Thread Colors

Picking Thread Colors

It can be challenging to pick colors on your device because of monitor variables, lighting, and glare. We have almost 100 thread color options. Tell us what colors you would like to be used and we will pick them for you! You will see an online proof to make sure you’re happy with the selection before the order is produced. Contact one of our expert customer representatives if you’re concerned about your thread and garment color combination.

Personalization Option

Mixing Garments Types

Everyone wants something different? We can help with that! As long as they can all be embroidered with the same design, you can mix garment types like caps, ladies shirts, and hoodies in your custom embroidery order. Price will vary per garment type, but the total quantity will determine the price break.


Reorders are priced based on quantity. Its a good idea to get some extras at the higher price break. Once we have your design, the minimum order is just 1 garment. At lower quantities, garments will cost more.
