With embroidery, your artwork is converted into a digitized file format and then is sewn onto a garment using a needle and special polyester thread. At Picky Hats, we use professional grade threads and Tajima embroidery machines to embroider custom headwear, sweaters and fleece, golf shirts and jackets.
Custom Embroidery is an automated decoration process where our sewing machines read a digitized file and reproduce the pattern in stitching format onto a garment. Digitizing is the process where your design is converted into a digital stitching format which can then be stitched into the garment. Embroidery works best for logos that don't include a high amount of small, intricate detail. Some custom logos will have to be slightly simplified for us to achieve the best embroidery results for the finished product.
To ensure that the embroidered design will be long lasting on a garment, a cloth backing is put on the inner portion of the garment to help hold the stitches together and ensure that the stitched design does not unravel. This helps ensure that the decoration will last the test of time.
The cost for an an embroidered design varies based on the number of stitches in a logo and the total size of area embroidered. We typically recommend a maximum of 4x4" for an embroidered design. The larger and more detailed the logo, the higher the stitch count and associated cost will be.
