Machine embroidery is a process whereby a sewing machine or embroidery machine is used to create patterns on textiles. It is used commercially in product branding, corporate advertising, and uniform adornment. Once the work is finished embroidery design looks professional and authentic. However, not all fabrics are good for embroidery. The following types of garments produce the best embroidery results: Button down shirts, jackets, caps, and bags. Loose t-shirts and knit shirts can be more difficult for small lettering. Call us if you have questions about whether or not your item can be embroidered.
Pricing for embroidery varies depending on the number of stitches. For example: a garment of 3,000 stitches is going to take much less time on the embroidery machine then a design of 50,000 stitches. Pricing is also dependent on the number of garments embroidered. Colors are not normally a pricing factor unless there are more then five colors in the design.
Please be informed that for embroidery, there is a one time fee for the time it takes to digitize your logo, which means to put it in a format that the embroidery machine can read. All files should be emailed to email@example.com.
Screen printing is a stencil method of print making in which a design is imposed on a screen of silk or other fine mesh, with blank areas coated with an impermeable substance, and ink is forced through the mesh onto the printing surface. It is some times said that screen printing can be less expensive than embroidery (unless you are using too many colors). Screen printing is great on almost any garment except for certain fabrics such as fleece, wool, and some micro fibers. If you have questions about whether or not your item can be screen printed please call us for information.
Pricing for Screen Printing varies on the number of garments being printed, the number of locations on the shirt, and the number of screens required to print the garment (each color requires a new screen). Some colors also require a primer before imprinting the actual color requested. For example, if you want to print on a black shirt with red letters. It would require to first print with white and then put the red layer over. There is a small additional fee for any additional color or special ink request. We charge a $20 flat rate for Pan-tone Color Match.
Please be informed that for screen printing we charge a one time setup fee for the time it takes to setup the machinery and the film screens used in the printing process.
