Embroidery Methods

Click an embroidery method to see an explanation.

Puff Embroidery

For Puff Embroidery a foam piece is inserted behind the stitching to create a 3D effect. This requires a very dense layer of thread over the foam. Digitizing for Puff embroidery is different as the ends of the design or letters need to cut off the foam. Puff digitizing stitch counts will be much higher than regular digitizing. Please add $1.00(r) per piece to use puff. Although we can do flats, this type of embroidery is recommended for caps.

Applique Embroidery

We have exciting new things for you with applique. Take a boring project of basic screen printing or embroidery and turn it into a WOW project. We can custom cut out your logo or wording out of standard basic colored fabric and sew it onto your apparel. Even more WOW, sublimate your custom pattern on fabric and then cut out your logo which is then sewn onto your apparel! Make that project shine!!

Basic color sheet $33.33(r) per sheet - Looking for a solid color applique? Using basic colored fabric we fit as many logos as we can on a 12x18 sheet. We then cut out your logo and sew it onto your garments. Fine detail logos are not recommended. Choose your embroidered edge (Satin, Hatch, or Line stitch) and voila~ custom applique.

Metallic Thread:

Metallic thread is actually a colored foil wrapped around a monofilament thread. Prone to thread breaks and unraveling, this thread is very difficult to work with especially on fine lettering! This thread is best used as an accent to your logo and is not recommended for detailed images. Please add $0.67® per thousand stitches, per logo.

Glow in the Dark Thread:

Glow in the dark thread gives a phosphorus glow at night. It is charged by the sunlight and due to the nature of the thread will appear off white with a green tinge in normal daylight. For Glow in the Dark Thread add $0.83(r) per thousand per logo.
