Checking Your Embroidery Proof?

Wondering if your logo will look from a distance? Print it to scale (your embroiderer should provide the measurements), tape it to the left chest area of a shirt and view it from three feet away. If its barely readable in print then it won't be readable when its embroidered. Can't print your logo at the correct size? Cut out a piece of paper in the correct size and try to imagine your logo at that size.
