What is Custom Embroidery?

Embroidery is the process of sewing logos or designs on apparel. Using thick, quality thread, the design is woven into the garment. Custom embroidery can be used to personalize shirts, hats, hoodies, bags, and other garments.

How the Embroidery Process Works

Want to know how your shirts, hoodies, polos, hats and other items are custom embroidered?


Give us a design or logo you like, or have our design team create one for you.


Once approved, your design is converted to a digital format and transferred to the embroidery machine.


After loading the design, instructions are programmed into the computer for the type of needles that need to be used, thread weight, and thread color.


Your design is attached to a frame or loop, centered correctly, and secured to the arms of the embroidery machine.


Stitch by stitch, your design is embroidered on the apparel you chose!

The Final Product

Embroidered items are tested for quality, loose threads are secured, and then the items are neatly folded and boxed/shipped or prepared for pick-up in-store.
