FAQs

 

 

HOW MUCH DOES EMBROIDERY COST?

Please see our price list where you can find out how much your embroidery will cost based upon the size of the embroidery and the number or items you would like embroidered.

This is the price to be charged on top of the cost of the item/garment which you may also wish to purchase from our online catalogue

IS THERE A SET UP OR DIGITIZING COST FOR MY EMBROIDERY DESIGN?

The is no fee for digitizing if you would just like standard text or if your order value is over £150 (before VAT) and only has one design in one size.

If you have a logo and your order value is less than £150 (before VAT) there is a digitizing cost of £17.50 (Plus VAT) per design.

If you would like one design in more than one size or multiple designs, please contact us for a quote.

This is a one off cost as we will keep your logo on file for any future orders.

WHAT IS DIGITIZING?

Digitizing is the process where we take your logo/text and create actual stitch paths for the machine to use to sew. This is a skilled job and is one of the main elements of high quality embroidery.

WHAT IS THE USUAL SIZE OF A LOGO TO THE LEFT BREAST?

We would usually recommend having your design at 90mm wide for a left breast and unless otherwise requested this is the size we will digitize your design at.

HOW MANY COLOURS CAN I HAVE IN MY DESIGN?

Your design can be up to a maximum of 6 colours

CAN I PICK MY OWN THREAD COLOURS?

You may pick your own thread colours from our colour chart (please note, due to screen resolution colours may differ slightly from how you see them on your screen). Most often customers trust us to colour match the thread to the logo they provide us with.

I WANT TO HAVE DIFFERENT COLOURS ON DIFFERENT SHIRTS. CAN YOU DO THAT?

Absolutely. There is no charge for colour changes on your embroidery order.

CAN YOU EMBROIDER MY LOGO ONTO A SELECTION OF DIFFERENT ITEMS?

Yes, as long as the logo stays the same size for no additional set up fees we can embroider the same logo onto a selection of items e.g Polo shirt, Hoodie, Bag, Towel, Beanie Hat, Equestrian items, Baby Grow, the list is endless!

WHAT IS THE LARGEST SEWING AREA FOR A DESIGN?

The largest area we can embroider is 20 x 30 cm so anything that fits within these dimensions can be embroidered. If your design is bigger it may be possible to split it into multiple embroideries, please contact us if you would like to discuss this.

CAN WE HAVE MORE THAN ONE EMBROIDERY ON THE SAME ITEM?

Yes of course, you can have as many embroideries as you like, however each one will have to be digitized and only one of these will be FOC if your order is over £150 (before VAT).  Please contact us for a quote if you would like multiple embroideries on the same item.

CAN I CHOOSE MY OWN FONT?

For Text Only embroidery you can choose from any of the fonts on our font chart. Fonts not on this chart can be used but a digitizing set up fee or £20 + VAT will apply to create your embroider in a font that is not from this chart

WHAT IS THE SMALLEST LETTER YOU CAN MAKE?

We can make letters incredibly small, but we don’t recommend sewing letters less than 7.5mm high. The quality of the stitching decreases considerably at heights lower than 7.5mm, particularly on specific fabrics, such as pique and fleece.
