What can I get embroidered?

For chainstitch embroidery, I accept non-stretch, heavy woven apparel like 100% cotton denim, canvas, felt, thick sweatshirt material, t-shirts over 8 oz, and caps. Most people customize denim jackets, sweatshirts, caps, or patches. Bags are possible too! If I can fit it under the needle, I can sew it.

Due to the damaging nature of the heavier stitching over time & other risk factors, I do not accept materials such as thin t-shirts, leather, polyester or spandex. If you aren’t sure, please feel free to upload a photo in the Customs form below.

For digital embroidery, we can be more flexible. Let me know what material you would like when you fill out the form below.

What kind of artwork can you embroider?

Virtually any artwork can be embroidered!

For chainstitch embroidery, the image is traced onto the garment with the corresponding thread colors. Bolder designs with fewer fine details are best suited for this type of “analog” embroidery technique, as it is done by hand. Think block fonts and solid shapes. Please include a .pdf .jpg, or .png and the approximate measurements of your artwork when you fill out the form below. 

For digital embroidery, your artwork needs to be digitized. Include a .pdf, .jpg, or .png and the measurements of your artwork in the form below. These images can be as detailed as possible.
