What we do

Printing guide

A quick comparison of which
method suits your needs best.

Embroidery

Embroidery uses chain stitches, stitched directly into the garment to produce the artwork. It is a traditional method and produces high quality looking items. Although the initial costs of producing the garments are higher than using other application techniques, embroidered designs will last the longest, so in combination with a high quality garment, this method can be the best value for money over time.

Embroidered artwork can have upto 15 colours, and our embroidery equipment can produce basic designs as well as more detailed artwork pieces. We can embroider onto pockets and other complex locations.

Embroidery is suitable for slogans, logos, and many types of intricate artwork. If you’re not sure of suitability then please send us your artwork and we will advise you.

Embroidery does have some limitations. Designs may need to be simplified or slightly altered to suite the technique. We will verify your artwork before we start your project.

Guidelines

You can supply your design files in nearly any format, but the most common are: JPEG, GIF or PNG.

Your images should have a minimum resolution of 150 dots per inch (DPI) and a maximum of 300 DPI. Your embroidery won’t look any better if you send us an image larger than 300 DPI.

Avoid scaling up low resolution images as they won’t look very good when converted, due to blur or jagged edges.

Conversion Process
Embroidery conversion is not as simple as converting a computer image from one file format to another. The process of conversion translates your pixels into a physical object which our embroidery professionals generate this specialised file, for which you pay the conversion fee.
