Embroidery is a type of needlework that involves decorating fabric with needle and thread. The process involves creating designs by stitching thread into the fabric in a particular pattern or arrangement. The design is created by following a pre-printed pattern, which is a “digitized” version of your artwork. Our custom embroidery services can be used on a wide variety of garments from polos and work shirts, to tees and hoodies, as well as a number of accessories like caps, beanies, and bags.
Embroidered apparel is extremely durable and will stand the test of time. When applied to quality garments, you may have a lifetime product. Especially when it comes to clothing lines or workwear, embroidery is a great way to set yourself apart from the competition, and offer a high-quality lifetime product, certainly a great choice if your products are custom made.
"Stitch count" refers to the total number of individual stitches used to create a design or pattern. It's a crucial measure of the intricacy and size of the embroidery project. A higher stitch count generally indicates a more detailed and complex design, or a larger design footprint, which may require more time and skill to complete. Stitch counts are essential for estimating the amount of thread needed, the time required for embroidery, and the overall cost of a project. They also help in selecting the appropriate embroidery machine settings and ensuring the design fits within the chosen fabric or garment.
