What is Embroidery?
Embroidery is the technique of decorating apparel, fabric, or other materials with needle and thread. It gives you an embossed design on your clothes. Embroidery is usually placed on the left chest unless specified. It is commonly used as an identity for corporate uniforms.
How is embroidery priced?
Our embroidery is priced by stitch count (the number of stitches that go in to your design). The typical stitch count for a 3″ logo is about 5,000 to 10,000 stitches. Stitch counting is fair for the customers as they will get a rough idea about what is required in a logo. If you are sewing a custom logo, there is also a digitization fee; which is the process where your logo is converted into a format which our sewing machine is able to read.

What is silkscreen printing?
Screen printing is a type of printing technique that uses a woven mesh to support an ink-blocking stencil. Forming open areas of mesh, the attached stencil transfers ink or other printable materials which can be pressed through the mesh as a sharp-edged image onto a substrate. A fill blade is moved across the screen stencil, injecting ink into the mesh openings for transfer by capillary action when the fill blade moves.
