Custom Embroidery is one of the oldest methods in the world for decorating fabric, and it is done so by using a needle and thread to recreate your image, and sewing it onto garments. Here at Source, this fundamental process is preformed by the highest end machines on the market, and is used to place your logo onto a large variety of garments including, but not limited to, custom hats, hoodies, shirts, and jackets.
We use world-standard threads to customize your embroidered garments, and of course your product wouldn’t be complete without using the highest end embroidery machines available.
Embroidery is a fully automated process whereby the machines read a digitized pattern from a file and reproduce the pattern using our machines. The digitizing process, also known as embroidery digitizing, comes in various file formats but are most commonly referred to as *.DST or *.EMB files. Digitizing is a skill that can only be done by a trained professional who converts your artwork into digital data by plotting the points of the design, which is then read and followed by the embroidery machine. This includes the thread sequence, angle and type.
The cost of embroidery varies based on the number of stitches in a logo. The larger or more detailed the logo, the higher the stitch count will be. Higher stitch count designs require more time for our embroidery machines to complete the design.
With custom embroidery, typically a backing is put on the inner potion of the garment to keep the stitches together and ensure the design does not unravel. The backings are extremely durable and meant to last over time. Embroidery is not an exact science, which means that some logos have to be simplified to achieve the best possible custom.
