Please note: Viewing the thread or color on your monitor or printer may not may not accurately represent how the thread looks when seeing the actual product.

 

Embroidery threads are not set to any specific Pantone or PMS color.  We can only match as close as possible to the color you are wanting.

Prior to production, you will receive a sew-out sample of your logo sewn on a sample piece of material in the exact thread colors that will be used in production of your order and you will need to approve the thread colors we have chosen. This allows you to see the thread colors accurately represented for the logo. Production samples are available at extra charges and can be shipped to you.

 

Standard sizing & fonts for numbers/names

EMBROIDERY Numbers                           EMBROIDERY Names

89                      SALLY SMITH

Full Block  - STD Font                        Front Small, Left or Right or Sleeve Locations

2" inch tall Numbers                          Grotesk - STD Font

                                                      .50" High/tall letters for std block style fonts

                                                      .75" High/tall letters for script style fonts

                                                      Some fonts may have to be all caps text for better clarity

 

Our most commonly used font is Grotesk, that looks the best for embroidery. We recommend that names or regular text be around 0.5 inch tall & numbers be around 2 inches tall. For script/cursive fonts, we recommend doing names/text at 0.75 inch tall for clarity.  Custom fonts provided by the client can be used at extra cost and typesetting & digitizing fees will apply.

 

Please note that Serif fonts (such as Schoolbook) are slightly more difficult to embroider, because the serifs (small lines that come off the ends of each letter) can sink into the fabric. We do not recommend using Serif fonts on fleece or Better Sweater material.

 

 

Design Proofs

Design Proofs and/or Product Designer or mockup show approximate location, size of logo, & imprint colors only & is not exact to the physical imprinted product.  When in production the location of imprint may vary up to 2" inches (up, down, left or right) based on the size of product (xxs thru 6x).  Logos will look slightly different on various fabrics.  We recommend an added box/shape behind logos when embroidering on fleece, knit or sweater type materials, to make logo more clean looking, giving it a flat surface to imprint on. Text will not always look clear or thick lines and is determined by type of font.  The smaller lines or thickness of font the less clear it will look.  Bigger, thicker lines for fonts embroider better.  With embroidery, as a general rule the bigger the logo or font/text the better the overall logo will look.  The smaller the logo, font/text the worse it will look.  Recommended minimum size for logos is 3.5 inches wide or larger.
