Considering Embroidered Jacket Backs?

Embroidered jacket back designs look sharp and get noticed! But, you should expect to pay a lot more for a large design set-up. Why can't your left chest set-up be used? Embroidery designs can only be enlarged 10% - 20% if at all. Often different stitch types must be used to create the same logo in different sizes so the digitizer (person who creates the set-up) must start from scratch when creating a jacket back sized design even though he may have already created a left chest version.

 

Have "Cutouts" In Your Design?

If your logo has sections where the fabric should show through make sure your embroiderer knows that before your logo is set-up for embroidery.  If your artwork has a transparent background (indicated by small grey and white boxes) then the cutout areas should be obvious but if your artwork is in a jpeg format then those areas might be mistaken for sections of white thread.

 

Overwhelmed By the Number of Style Choices?

In the last few years the number of styles available for embroidery has grown greatly.  If you're looking for a type of style but feel overwhelmed by the number of possibilities your embroiderer can make suggestions and point out the differences between styles so you can easily find your perfect style.
