Pricing:

Embroidery Pricing

Pricing is based on discount Quantity Pricing. Embroidery pricing is included in our shopping cart for 1-6 items. Contact us for pricing for quantities of 7 or more items.

Quantity break downs are: 1-6 items, 7-12, 13-23, 24-36, 37-49, 50-74, 75-124 and 125-199. Please call for quantities over 200. There's no minimum for embroidered garments. There's a six item minimum for embroidered hats and visors.

Pricing is based on the type of garment, size of design, number of embroidery locations and quantity of garments. There is no additional charge for the number of thread colors in a design. There is no additional charge for thread changes to accommodate different garment colors.

Embroidery set-up pricing is based on whether you use a stock design or a custom logo. Stock embroidered text is free.

Stock design pricing ranges from $15.00 for small designs to $50.00 for large designs. Stock designs can be found at Great Notions Embroidery Designs.

Custom logo pricing is based on the size and complexity of the design.  Most left chest designs are $30.00. Embroidery set-up, also known as "digitizing", is free for left chest designs when 24 or more items are ordered. Large jacket back designs are quoted on an individual basis. Digitizing is a one time fee. Your digitized design is kept on file for reorders. For more information on digitizing see What Is Digitizing?

Individual names are $3.00 per name when the name is embroidered in an additional logo placement such as on the right chest.

Screen Printing Pricing

Screen printing set-up fees are based on the number of colors per design. There is a $20.00 screen charge for each color. There is a $10.00 per screen "reclaim" charge for reorders.

Screen printing pricing is based on the style and color of the garment, number of print locations, number of colors in the design and the quantity ordered. For more information on screen printing costs see How To Order Custom Screen Printed T-Shirts.

There's a 72 piece minimum for screen printing. Contact us for screen printing pricing.

Depending on the style, one or more thumbnail images will appear. If there is more than one image, the first image should have the style number below it.

We're happy to send sample garments so you can check sizing. Sizing for individual styles can be found by clicking the "View Specsheet" link in the upper right of the style page. Items containing cotton can shrink up to 10% of the garment size depending on how the item is laundered.

 

Production:

Thread and Ink Colors

We stock a wide range of thread and ink colors. Let us know if you need specific PMS (Pantone Matching System) colors. If you require Pantone matching for embroidery thread we recommend that you have an embroidered sample sent to you so you can verify thread colors.

Stock Embroidery Fonts

If you need text embroidered in a stock embroidery font we'll email you a proof showing with your text in different fonts so you can see exactly how each font will look before making your choice.

Logo Placement Options

In addition to the traditional left chest placement we can also embroider and print on the right chest, sleeves, cuffs and the back. Have a different placement in mind? Tell us what it is and we'll let you know if it can be done.
