Embroidery Production (Add-On)
If you're ordering blanks directly from our website and want the easiest process for smaller orders, you need to order an 'Add-On' production method alongside your desired blanks. For every blank, there must be an 'Add-On' to ensure you're charged the correct amount and your custom product(s) can be produced by us.
This embroidery 'Add-On' has 3x size options and 3x complexity options alongside thread colours (which match the number of colours within your design). Please check the below breakdown of each of these options to ensure you select the correct ones. If for any reason we review your order and something doesn't seem right, we'll reach out to see if we have to reduce or increase your charge.
Confused? Feel free to directly email us any questions or visit this page to order manually via the contact form where we'll get back to you shortly to arrange the order and payment.
This is for smaller centre or left chest designs and whilst the option is there to make these complex, they can only be so complex due to the size restrictions. Ie. if you have lots of small text embroidered closely together, they likely won't turn out great.
This is our most popular size and what we've used for the majority of our designs across the years. It enables a fast embroidery that's perfect for central designs that stand out but also don't swamp the whole garment. You can get pretty detailed here without compromise.
For those big embroidery designs with either lots of text or large graphics. They can work great on the front or back of garments and have loads of space for different element. However, they cost the most due to the time taken and the amount of stitches required.
A simple word, phrase or extremely simple graphic (ie. a line drawing). If you think your design might be on the cusp, it's likely you'll have opt for one of the other two options.
Most designs will fall under this category and it also has a slight correlation with design size (a small or medium design will usually always fall into this category)
If your design has a lot of text, a more detailed graphic or simply a lot going on, it'll be classed as complex. This category usually correlates with thread colours.
Embroidery is one of the most well regarded clothing customisation methods and is loved universally by customers and brands alike for its longevity and general high quality finish. Whilst more suited to simple, lower colour designs, it can be used for a range of aesthetics + designs and we always suggest (if designing yourself) that you create designs with threads in mind.
This basically means designing around the fact that it will eventually be 'sewed' into the garment and with this, comes tension, pulling and design flaws that can occur if a design wasn't made to be embroidered. For the large majority of designs this is no problem but if you're ever confused if you're design would work well, please just reach out so we can confirm or suggest modifications.
Unlike print, it's not just a case of hitting 'Go' and your .PNG design is printed onto the garment. Instead, we need to 'digitise' the design first which essentially converts it to a readable file by the embroidery machine. We don't charge anything additional for digitising but can also accept pre-digitised files if you prefer.
