Quilts, and a whole lot more…
Home of the Purple Cat Gang
Our specialty in embroidery is doing single to several items of one name or logo that the bigger embroidery shops don’t want to touch. We have a Tajima 15-needle embroidery machine with the capability of stitching out an item as small as a hankie up to a jacket back. We use Hemingworth trilobal polyester thread which comes in 300 colors, including some metallic colors.
We have found that most of the time it is difficult for someone to describe their project over the phone with enough clarity that we are able to give them a precise cost estimate. We much prefer to see the item we would be embroidering because then we can see the type of fabric we would be embroidering on and if there are any inherent difficulties in getting the project into a hoop on our machine. If you insist on a “guesstimate”, we will give you a range of pricing so as not to misstate what the actual project will cost. It is best if you bring in your project so we can give you an accurate cost estimate.
Any project that we do for the embroidery machine must be put into a program that the embroidery machine can read. The term for that is “digitizing” the pattern. If it is straight lettering, we can do that in-house and the cost would be less than if we sent it off to our digitizer. However, items like a specialized font style, company logo, school mascot, etc. will need to be sent out to a digitizer to make into a stitch file that our Tajima can read. That will be a one-time cost which we can quote you once we see the design to be digitized. An average cost for a logo that would be embroidered on a hat or shirt front, is approximately $40-50. Larger patterns we need to send the pattern to the digitizer to get a quote. Once you pay that amount, we save the pattern for later use and on repeat business you only pay the cost to stitch it out.
