Please note that here are a number of things that can restrict us from being able to embroider on your item - pockets, zippers, linings, seams, fabric that is too thick or too delicate. We cannot say for sure that your item can be embroidered until we have seen it.

* Some backpacks with too many zippers or padding may not be able to be embroidered. We are not able to embroider Fjallraven Kanken backpacks.

    Yes, we can convert your logos, designs and artwork into a special format so they can be embroidered by our machines. It needs to be DIGITIZED for embroidery using an embroidery specific program operated by a trained digitizer.

    Sure can! See our information on patches here.

    We do custom order sales on singular items as well as large volume orders! For Volume order inquires please request a quote.

    We embroider items purchased elsewhere all the time if they are suitable for embroidery.

    Not all items, even if they are constructed of fabric, can be embroidered. (If they are too small to hoop, have lots of zippers and pockets, or are thick padded fabrics, have layers of fabrics, are fragile or constructed in any way that prevents us from being able to hoop your item and secure it in our machine)

    Also, there are some things that we do not recommend be embroidered even if it is possible (examples of this are irreplaceable items, very thin or delicate fabrics, neck ties, very expensive items, anything leather, anything the hoop may leave a mark on) Please bring your item into Make to see if it works with embroidery.

    We will not embroider unwashed items, no exceptions.

    During COVID we will we keep your items in quarantine for 48 hours before moving them into production.

    Yes! We have over 20 fonts to choose from. NOTE - Text needs to be at least 0.2" high to work.

    As for clip art, we are currently revamping our ready made embroidery design collection. A new collection will be available in the fall so for now we are only offering our stock fonts or custom designs. If you have a design saved with us that incorporated some of our past clip art, it will be available to you.

    Possibly. It depends on how complicated the photo is. Please note that you need to be the owner or creator of the image or have specific permission to use it. We do not reproduce copyright protected images or artwork without the permission of the creator or owner. Landscape or portrait photography does not translate well to embroidery. If you're looking to put this kind of photography onto clothing consider our printing options.
