* Please Note:

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.

    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.
