Just shipped off an order to California for Attic Perfect! They ordered some embroidered caps and polos, as well as some heat pressed shirts with their logo. The white outline used on the heat transfers makes the logo stand out more from the black background.
Here are a couple of pics from a recent order. A combination of embroidery on shirts and messenger bags and heat transfers on t-shirts. We can embroider t-shirts but for a large design such as this, heat transfers are the better option. Less expensive and lots of stitches in large designs tend to bunch up and distort thin fabrics.
Moisture-wicking heather polos
It’s the time of year when the new fall fashions begin arriving. One of the most interesting is the NEW Nike Golf Dri-FIT Heather Pique Modern Fit Polo, starting at $53.98. The ‘heather’ look polo is gaining in popularity, and combined with Nike’s superior moisture-wicking technology, you have a proven winner.
Having items embroidered with a custom logo is a very cost-effective and appealing way to get a brand in front of the public. One of the most popular ways to use embroidered logos is to have them on polo shirts. Polo shirts are fashionable, comfortable, and come in a variety of colors. Other popular uses are on hats, jackets, golf shirts, blankets, and bags, and they can be used for a variety of business and personal purposes.
Businesses Use Embroidered Logos in a Number of Ways
- For branding and advertising – having embroidered apparel gets a company name in front of prospective customers.
- For employee awards and gifts – giving logo embroidered shirts, jackets, and hats is a method used to promote a business and improve employee morale at the same time.
- As approved company casual wear – allows employees to dress casually, yet maintain a professional appearance.
- For corporate functions – company picnics and get togethers are attended in comfort, yet still the advantage of having a branding opportunity is taken. Sponsored sports teams are identified with the company logo or slogan with embroidered items such as jerseys, team jackets, hats, and equipment bags.
- As uniforms – comfortable, fashionable, company branded uniforms are created with logo embroidered polo shirts and hats.
Individuals or Groups Use Embroidered Logos
- For cause awareness – logo embroidered apparel is used to promote a cause or community group. It raises the visibility and brings focus to an issue. A perfect example of this is the pink ribbon for breast cancer awareness that is embroidered into apparel of all sorts.
- For group identification – groups such as youth ball teams, community organizations, schools, and more foster group pride, identity, and advertising through embroidered custom logos.
- As a unique, custom gift – this is often a logo such as family crest, or something of personal interest that is embroidered and given as a one-of-a-kind, personalized gift.

In today’s business environment, casual wear is more common than ever before. Even the most conservative company will at the very least have a “casual day” during the week. The question then is how can a business present a professional front while maintaining employee morale with casual wear?
Custom Embroidery Fits Employee Needs
Employees want to be comfortable; you want a professional appearance. Having select apparel with your company logo embroidery or slogan solves both issues. The company gets recognition, the wear can be casual but still have a classy look, and the employee knows he or she is a part of the company and is recognized as such, which improves morale and performance.
Company Logo Embroidery Items Promote Branding
Having personalized hats, custom work shirts, and other apparel embroidered with a company logo or slogan is like having a walking billboard. It’s great advertising. Sales forces provided with embroidered apparel have instant recognition when they appear for client meetings. These items help provide identification for field employees while promoting your brand. Giving gifts and awards of embroidered apparel to your employees serves both as morale boosting recognition for your employees and advertising for you.
The most common custom work shirts are embroidered company polo shirts. These are popular, comfortable, and fashionable, so people enjoy wearing them. They are casual, but fit most body types well. The fact that they come in so many colors also makes them easier to match to your logo or company colors. For companies that require it, a custom embroidered polo or similar shirt makes an excellent uniform. As an added bonus, they are also relatively inexpensive, so they provide excellent cost to benefit features.
You Want An Expert on Embroidery
Not all embroidery companies are equal. You want someone who understands the embroidery business, who knows what works and what doesn’t. You want someone who believes in quality and professional results, so your logo will be worn proudly because it looks so good. You want an authority – the Embroidery Authority!

Whether for business or personal purposes, embroidery is a long lasting, cost-effective way to put branding in front of an audience. Several factors determine the actual embroidery cost:
Digitizing the logo or design
All embroidery companies have this cost. Some will try to hide it by including it in the overall price of the item. While it may seem like you don’t have to pay a digitizing cost, you actually are paying a hidden logo digitizing cost and you wind up paying it every time you re-use that logo or design. At The Embroidery Authority, we let you know up front what the digitizing cost will be. It is a one-time charge for that logo or design. This means when you come back to re-use that logo, you will only pay the actual cost for the embroidery.
When considering the digitizing costs, not only should you find out what the actual fee is, you should be wary of bargain pricing. Not all digitizing services are equal. This is the most critical stage in getting embroidery done correctly and to your satisfaction.
Our digitizers take extra care in creating the stitches to bring out details others might overlook. You want a result you will be proud of, and that is our goal, satisfaction guaranteed.
Number of Stitches
Generally, the more stitches required, the more the embroidery will cost. Keep this in mind when you are determining the size and complexity of your design. We have a set price for items that are up to 10,000 stitches per piece. Almost all logos on shirts and caps are less than 10,000 stitches, so they would fall into this base price. Above 10,000 stitches, we have a pricing table that is based on each additional 1,000 stitches. As an example, designs on jacket backs can easily be 30,000 to 60,000 stitches.
Number of Pieces
Because much of the labor and time is in the initial digitizing and set up, embroidery is most cost effective with bulk orders. Price per item is less with larger orders.
We offer discounts for non-profit organizations for uniforms and fund raisers. Also, remember that with us, re-orders are less because your digitizing cost is only paid once.
We Are The Embroidery Experts
You want quality embroidery at a reasonable cost. Based on the above criteria, an order from The Embroidery Authority of 12 polo shirts with an embroidered logo could cost less than $23 per shirt, with a re-order being less than $19 per shirt!
