What is custom embroidery?

Embroidery is a popular decoration method where your logo or design is sewn onto a garment using a needle and thread. Embroidery may also incorporate other materials such as metal strips, pearls, beads, quills, and sequins. Embroidered images are sewn right on to the garment, so they’re forever & very durable.

A characteristic of embroidery is that the basic techniques of stitches, chain stitch, buttonhole or blanket stitch, running stitch, satin stitch, cross stitch –remain the fundamental techniques of hand embroidery today.

Machine embroidery, arising in the early stages of the industrial revolution, mimics hand embroidery, especially in the use of chain stitches, but the satin stitches and hemming stitches in machine embroidery rely on the use of multiple threads and resemble hand work in their appearance, not their construction.

Please see some examples in the photo gallery above.

Why do we choose the embroidery stuff from Terry Trophy & awards?

What is that set-up charge in custom embroidery?

Embroidery is essentially done by a sewing machine with all of the elements one expects-like a needle, bobbin and thread. But unlike standard sewing machines which essentially sewing in straight lines, an embroidery machine can sew patterns. Therefore, someone or something has to tell the embroidery machine where and when to sew a stitch in order to create a pattern like a logo.

The set-up or digitizing process represents a real cost for companies that do embroidery. It requires a very expensive piece of software and a highly trained person to do it right.

That is why embroidery companies charge a setup fee.

Good embroidery starts with good digitizing. The best companies hire people who are highly skilled and experienced to get the best possible setup of a logo for embroidery.

The good news is that once a logo has gone through this set-up or digitizing process, that file can be used over and over again on future orders without having to incur the cost again.
