Embroidery and Swatches

How can I get my logo embroidered onto clothing?
First, we need your logo, ideally as a vector based graphics. If you have had your logo professionally designed your designer should be able to give you an ai, eps, pdf or CorelDraw file with all fonts outlined. We can work with jpegs but they need to be a high resolution.
We will then digitise your logo so that the embroidery machines can replicate the design in thread and stitches. We will then be able to give you a cost for embroidering your logo onto the garments of your choice, once you have given us the go-ahead we will create a swatch of your logo to approve and the order can go ahead.

Please note, there is a minimum order for embroidery onto garments, ask for more details when enquiring for a quotation.

What is a ‘stitch count’?
Generally, the more complex the logo, and the more stitches the machines need to do to create it, the more expensive it can be, this is called the ‘stitch count’. If your stitch count is high, we can suggest simplifying your logo to text to suit your budget.

Can I have my logo anywhere?
Your logo can then be embroidered onto various locations on your garment of choice, but placements are usually on the left or right breast area, middle of the chest, on the sleeve and on the back around the nape of the neck. On headwear, like caps and Beanies, usually, the front and back are embroidered.

Do you keep my logo file so I can re-order?
Of course, once your logo has been made into a file for use on our embroidery machines it can be used again and again and on almost any type of clothing from our catalogue including, shirts, caps, jackets, gilets and hi-vis vests.

Tell me more about a ‘colour swatch’
Your logo is important to us, so before we go ahead with your order of garments we will embroider a colour swatch for you. This swatch allows you to see how the final embroidery will look on a small piece of fabric, almost like a proof or test piece.

Here are some examples of embroidery swatches we have completed for recent orders:
