is a process of stitching a thread into a garment, which was
traditionally done by hand. Through time and technology the process
of embroidery has now evolved into large, computerized industrial
machines. Each machine consist of a stitching station which is
also known as a “head.” Each head embroiders a single
item at a time. All of Quik Stitch Embroidery’s machines,
which include Barudan, Tajima, and Melco, have a minimum of 4
heads per machine. We currently own 6 modern embroidery
machines that operate at a minimum of forty hours per week.
Contrary to screen printing, embroidery does not limit the customer
in the amount of colors, placement of logos, or minimum pieces.
When getting items embroidery there is no difference in cost
between and one-color logo or a multi-color logo, allowing for
a maximum of 12 colors per logo. When deciding the placement
of a logo the customer has multiple options without a price increase.
The common placements of logos are usually, but are not limited
to, over the heart (also referred to as left chest), sleeves,
hats, pant legs, full chest or full back. A major benefit of
embroidery is there are no minimum amounts needed per order,
with the exception of hats, which should have a four piece minimum
Customers should also be advised that when creating new logos
to be embroidered, the artwork must be digitized first before
the actually embroidery takes place. Digitizing is a method of
making a computerized disc that is formatted for embroidery machines.
New artwork should be provided in certain formats such as jpeg,
eps, or pdf. For more information and further details please
see the digitizing tab available on our website.
Embroidery has a specialized, clean look, which makes it attractive to all of
our customers. Embroidered jackets, polo’s, hats, sweatshirts, etc. tend
to look more professional and have become increasingly popular over the last
ten years. There are endless ways to create the perfect logo for the perfect
customer. If any further assistance is needed regarding embroidery please
