Quality Control Department

We supply embroidery services and have experienced staff who control the quality of our Custom Patches. We are a custom embroidery; for that reason, our quality controllers are skilled embroiderers with extensive experience in the custom embroidery industry.

Our QCs examine style details, outlines, fill locations, and the back side of the Custom Patches to guarantee the bobbin thread settings.

The following are NINE (9) steps our QCs follow:

1. Examine size; utilize a ruler to measure the finished size of the patches.

2. Check out all the text/letters in a logo and match it with its original logo design artwork.

3. Check the puckering issues, using the fabric stabilizer, and thread trimming.

Free Pantone Color Matching

Why is Pantone matching essential? Colors on a screen constantly various than the ones on the PMS * color book; matching PMS book colors with on-screen colors does not work. The only method to match the colors exactly, 100%, is using a physical PMS color book. If you are utilizing a PDF PMS color book, you are accepting the difference in colors, somewhat. To avoid this difference, all embroidery services utilize PMS.

We match any thread or material colors with the offered PMS color codes totally free. It assists our customers to buy the precise thread or material colors they need for a job. For background fabric, we utilize Dye Sublimation approach to match the required PMS color. We always try to match as close as possible but remember that Pantone has over 3,000 colors. Madeira, the biggest embroidery thread brand name, has around 500 thread colors. There is one thread color for 6 Pantone colors.


Stitch-count Based Prices

Unlike other embroidery services, we use the stitch-count based prices method. It makes great deals of sense when you utilize "pay as you go" rates calculator. Size based prices are, sometimes, excessive for an easy logo. The number of stitches varies logo to logo; a 3" round logo design with 100% covered with stitches might have 15,000 to 25,000 stitches.

So, how do our rivals (the other custom embroidery business) calculate the cost? Do you believe they would base the cost on 15,000 stitches?

Absolutely NOT! They constantly base their rates on the higher stitch-count.

Isn't it unreasonable for you? If so, stop being charged unfairly, TODAY!


An American Company with Overseas Manufacturing

We are a registered LLC business in the state of Texas. We get our payments in our domestic checking accounts; we get the traditional bank checks as well as the contemporary eChecks.
