Embroidery is the craft of decorating fabric or other materials using a needle to apply thread. Thread is available with a very wide variety of colour. Pantones exactly may not be an option, but we will most certainly have something close. We also offer puff embroidery, please ask one of our specialists today if any of these options can be right for you :)
Embroidery works best on all colours of garments, thicker / heavier material like caps, toques, coats, blankets, denim, hoodies and polos. Because we have a single head machine and a six head machine, we offer work on smaller and larger runs.
There is a setup fee for digitizing, which is generally $35-$50, so embroidering one item can be quite costly. However, once the digitizing fee is paid for, that exact design can be used over and over without additional setup fees. Things that may not work out well while digitizing are fine detail. The thinnest lines that an embroidery machine can produce are the thickness of a thread. Not as small as you may think. If you’re doing puff embroidery, you can’t even go that thin. The thread needs to encompass the foam, which also has limitations. And lastly, although gradients are not impossible, sometimes the end result is not as fluid as one may expect it to be. Size changes, and location of design can opt for a new setup fee, however. Talk to one of our specialists if you don't know whether embroidery will be right for your project.
Satin Stitch Embroidery
Commonly used for single colour embroidery and dense outlines, satin stitch refers to crisp, single direction embroidery (ie. horizontal or vertical stitching). Great for font based logos and word based embroidery. Keep in mind, size matters here! This tecnique thrives on dense lines and works best with standard or large sizes.
AKA Cover the full spectrum of your design! Commonly used for larger peices, from chunky letters to illustrations. This technique combines satin stitching (typically as an outline) and fill stitching (mutlitdirectional lines) to bring your work to life.
