Embroidery - Great for branded apparel, bags and headwear.

Embroidery is precise, professional, and long-lasting, making it an attractive decoration method. Our in-house embroidery department features over 100 heads of embroidery equipment to deliver high-quality embellishment with the fastest turnaround times in the industry.

Pantone (PMS) Matching

Our account specialist will work with our decoration experts to match the embroidery thread as closely as possible to the Pantone (PMS) colors used in your custom logo.

Tonal Embroidery

Tonal embroidery or tone on tone pairs slighty different tones of the product to the embroidery thread color being used in your logo. A common example is black on black.

Color On Color

Color on color embroidery matches the thread color used in your logo to the color of the shirt. This creates a look that is similar to tone on tone, but with bright colors.

Color Coordinate

Color coordinate matches the thread colors in your logo to accent colors on the item that's being decorated. This creates a cool look but may require approval from your brand team.
Puff Embroidery - Create a retail look that will bring your brand image to life.
Puff embroidery is a three dimensional effect that raises the stitches off of the garment. It works best with large areas of simple block text or shapes. 
For best results we recommend avoiding artwork with small details and fine lines. Contact us to set up your Puff Embroidery file today. 
Standard sizing: 2.25” max height, 3.25” max width
