There's a reason why Montrealers have trusted us with their embroidery over the last 10 years.
What works well for embroidery
When creating your embroidery project, there's a few guidelines to go by that will help you get the best possible results. Here's how:
1. With embroidery, simple usually stands out best. Some of the most eye catching logos that we have ever embroidered are the ones that are the most simple. When working with simple logos, we can make the embroidery shine by optimizing stitch direction and density.
2. Keep it small. Embroidery is not meant to be large on most items. Especially t-shirts, too big of an embroidery means too much weight on the shirt. Think of where you most commonly see embroidery, usually on the left chest and sized proportionally to the shirt. For decorations where size matter, we suggest our vinyl prints that can have the size but without the weight.
3. Digitizing: You get out what you put in. Digitizing is the process of converting your logo into the embroidery format for the machine. All designs need to be digitized even if they are simple text. We take our time and watch for lots of things that make a logo embroider well like stitch direction and underlay. Our digitizing fees are minimal and we keep your logo on file indefinitely for you to use whenever you need more!
