Why should I care about stitches?

May 16, 2019

The word “embroidery” brings different things to mind for everyone….granny with her needle and wooden hoop, toiling away at a tea towel embellished with butterflies… hippie jeans with flowers and peace symbols… or a button-up dress shirt with a tidy corporate logo above the pocket. The common thread here (lol) is that they all were stitched with a needle and fibers. However, not all end in a good finished product. Factoring into the results are steady hands, good design, quality products, and accurate art placement. Here are the deets on getting it done: 

  1. JUNK IN = JUNK OUT! This rings loud and true with embroidery, so if your logo is not crisp and clear (see our article on vector art HERE), we can help you solve your issues. Once we have quality artwork in the appropriate file type (vector), the good art is then handed to our skilled digitizing team where it is converted into a design that is read by our high-tech robots….er, embroidery machines.
  2. Choose wisely. High quality products are made for embellishment! We will help guide your selections so that your chosen items look sharp, will fit the sensibilities of your brand, and will make you look so good that you’ll smash the competition! 
  3. Know what the capabilities are. Highly detailed art and tiny text are difficult to embroider. Shading, ombré effects and halftones aren’t easily reproduced with needles and threads. Not all items can be (or even should be) embroidered. But fear not…limitations can also present some fantastic alternative solutions! We are really good at thinking outside the box for you.
  4. We keep in in-house. Yes, we have our own embroidery facility. What does that do for you? It ensures that your job is closely monitored from start to finish, by us, to make sure the results are fantastic. Our embroidery techs are highly trained, experienced, and their mission is to give you the best possible outcome. 

Your Brand Ambassador has the tools to turn your logo into a successfully embroidered garment, cap, or bag, when best practices are adopted.
