The Embroidery Embroidery Processes
Needle & Thread
Needle & Thread
The embroidery process uses needle and thread to embellish products with your logo. Embroidery is precise, professional, and long-lasting, making it an attractive decoration method. Please note that the final price is based upon the logo stitch count (base pricing includes one custom logo up to 10,000 stitches). Custom name personalization can be added for an additional $10 per piece.
File Types & Sizing
We will accept any file type for artwork but prefer .JPG, .PDF, and .EPS, in the highest resolution possible. DST files are accepted for embroidery orders but must be the proper size for the size/location being requested. It is essential to submit high resolution artwork in order to ensure the quality of your logo.

Additional Decoration Methods
Corporate Gear offers multiple embellishment options to decorate products with your custom logo. Although embroidery is the most popular decoration method, our other decoration methods include screen printing, heat transfers, and laser engraving. Embellishment method is determined dependent on the product it is being applied to.
The Screen Printing Process
The standard logo locations for embellishment include chest, sleeve, and back placement. The standard locations for laser engraving of YETI products include drinkware front and back. For non-standard custom logo locations a custom request can be submitted.
The Design Design Guide
The Screen Printing Process
The Screen Printing Process
Screen printing is a decoration method used for creating custom t-shirts in bulk and involves layering ink to create a desired design. This method is most cost effective for runs of 48+ units that include logos with fewer colors (this is due to the screen setup). The base price listed includes a 1-color logo for this decoration method. Final pricing for your order will be based upon the number of colors in your custom logo.
The Screen Printing Process
The Heat Transfer Process
The Heat Transfer Process
The heat transfer method involves applying an ink-based design to the product with a heat press machine. This method is best for smaller order sizes and allows for more flexibility. The final price will be based upon the quantity, print size, and number of colors in your custom logo.
The Heat Transfer Process
The Laser Engraving Process
The Laser Engraving Process
The laser engraving process is used for the decoration of custom YETI drinkware. The laser engraving method involves a laser machine engraving your logo onto the surface of YETI products. Make your custom YETI yours with a custom name or custom initial personalization. Name personalization is available as a custom request for an additional cost.
