Our embroidery service caters for everyone; whether you want to outfit the whole company all over Australia, a sports team, an office, or whether you are a small business needing a few shirts. Our machines are top quality which are capable of handling large or small orders. We are also happy to offer a personalisation service (names on shirts, towels etc) with no setup fees.
The Setup Process
If you would like a logo embroidered onto your garments then the image first needs to be digitised into a format that the embroidery machine can read. This involves importing a jpeg or bitmap image into the embroidery software and then manually "redrawing" the areas to be embroidered using the underlying image as a guide.
The digitiser looks at the design and imagines how it will be stitched out to make it run as smoothly as possible and to create the layers of stitches in the correct order. A correctly digitised design is essential to produce quality work that will look good and last well through wear and laundering. As embroidery costs are based on stitch counts some companies cut costs by cutting stitch counts. This means that the end product will be less solid and the underneath fabric may show through between stitches or, if underlay stitches are compromised, the end product may look skewed and out of shape. The quality of the software is important too and we use only Australian developed Wilcom software, which is widely considered to be the best.
We are happy to digitise your logo and stitch out a sample for approval. We can create a computer generated image of the final design (example below) which we email you to check for size, dimensions, spelling and colour. Then we stitch out a sample which you can collect from us, or we can email you a photo. Once final approval has been received and all stock is in, we will embroider your garments within a few days. You should allow 2-3 weeks for the entire process although more urgent orders can usually be accommodated.
