DO YOU HAVE MINIMUM ORDERS?
No we don’t but we do like to run at least 10 pieces per order to keep the costs down. These pieces can be mixed size or garments as long as the embroidery size stays the same.
HOW BIG CAN I GET MY EMBROIDERY?
All depends on the garment your wanting to choose to the design you have in mind. Send us it over and ask us for the largest possible size and we can price from there.
CAN WE HAVE INDIVIDUAL NAMES ON GARMENTS?
Yes, we can do this. All we ask is you send us the full list of names and the position you’d like it in along with the size of the garment and we can do the rest. Please note we will relocate the exact same spelling as you have sent us.
CAN I SEND YOU MY CLOTHING TO BE EMBROIDERED?
Yes we do embroidery only pricing, it will be price upon application and it will be more expensive than purchasing goods and embroidery together from us.
CAN I COLOUR CHANGE MY LOGO?
Yes you can change thread colours on any garments and its no extra cost. We just ask you make it very clear which garments require which colour.
CAN YOU MATCH MY PRINT TO MY EMBROIDERY?
Yes and no, we are better of matching your print colour to your embroidery than trying to match your embroidery to your print colour. Threads are not available in very colour under the sun, where as we can mix inks to get the closest shade possible to your embroidery. It may not be exact!

STAND OUT WITH 3D EMBROIDERY?
This is our speciality!! Puff Embroidery otherwise known 3D Embroidery is fast becoming a popular choice for a lot of our clients.
If you’ve not already heard of Puff embroidery also known as 3D Embroidery. It’s a technique, which allows you to raise the surface of your designs, making them essentially three-dimensional. 3D Foam can give your designs a complete creative boost, transforming them completely. However some parts of the technique may be a little tricky so not all designs are possible. Size and design are critical when making sure you get the best effect for Puff Embroidery.
Puff embroidery is a technique where foam is inserted under the top stitch to raise the surface, giving a three-dimensional look to your embroidery designs. The 3D foam effect is commonly used on garments that don’t require much washing. Apparel like caps, jackets and other outerwear are pieces that are best suited for this technique.
THINGS TO BE AWARE OF WHEN ATTEMPTING TO USE 3D FOAM
Typically the design plays a huge part, if the design is to intricate, small or design is too closely spaced the design will not work. If the design is too thick the thread will not have the best coverage over the foam base.
Foam colour is also important: it is best to use the same colour as your top thread as any excess foam would be less visible.
Subject matter is also important: 3D foam works best with satin stitching. If the object you want to raise can’t be digitized in satin, then you shouldn’t use foam. Carefully select the right garments for these types of embroidery, they work best and last much longer on items which are typically washed.
WHY IS THE 3D FOAM TECHNIQUE DIFFERENT?
The 3D foam technique is different to standard flat embroidery in the following ways:
- Capping – Where the top stitch is not covering the foam, a separate object is created to cap the corners usually running in a perpendicular direction.
- Securing Stitches – These are needed to hold two objects together.
- Stitch Density – Spacing between penetrations needs to be denser to help cut and cover the excess foam.
- Top thread Tension – This is usually loose when stitching a foam design.Fonts and basic shapes are commonly used. More Pull Compensation is needed for the thickness of the foam.
IS 3D EMBROIDERY EXPENSIVE?
Depends on the size and detail of the design. Not all designs can be done in 3D Embroidery, its always best to check first.
IS THERE A MINIMUM ORDER?
As with normal flat embroidery, we don’t have any minimums but we do like to run off at least 10 pieces of the same logo to keep your costs down.
DO YOU DO SAMPLE?
Yes we can although we would have to charge the digitising fee upfront (£20 per design) plus the cost of the cap/garment. Please note it will prolong the process.
WHAT’S THE TURN AROUND TIME?
Standard turn around times are about 7-10 working days from approving your artwork, however, this may take longer due to our production lead times.
HOW DO I GET A QUOTE?
Send all artwork over to email@example.com and the garments you’d like and we can price from there.
