Digitizing Fees

We turn your custom logo into an embroidered design. One time fee. Cost is $12.00 per thousand stitches digitized with a minimum fee of $50.00 per design. Stitch counts are estimated by the size and complexity of a design. Until design is actually digitized, stitch count will be estimated and could be +/- 20% of that which is quoted.

Optional: A copy of your digitized art file will be available to you upon your request ( requires an additional fee ) on a 3.5" disk or CD for a cost of $125.00 in addition to the digitizing fee.

Editing: To edit previously digitized designs that require less than 30 minutes to complete will be charged $30.00 and any major revisions will be quoted.

Estimate the stitch count for your custom embroidered design by following some guidelines provided below.
  1. One fully filled square inch of embroidery is approximately 2,000 stitches.
  2. One fully filled 1/4 square inch of embroidery is approximately 125 stitches.
  3. Lettering should never be less than 3/16" high and lettering that is 1/4" high is approximately 100 stitches.
  4. If you have drop shadows in your logo this will be approximately 200 stitches per inch.
  5. Lines under your logo require approximately 200 stitches per inch.
  6. Fabric used and detail in artwork affect how much underlay will be needed in order to provide you with a quality embroidered design, all this translates into how much it will affect the total amount of stitches in your design.
Typeface Only - Embroidery Setup: Cost is $30.00 per setup and includes only lettering ( using stock fonts ) or words, no graphics, icons, or logo included. This is billed per lettering sewn in a single location.
