Embroidery is the most versatile of all decoration techniques. Whether you are looking for a subtle tone-on-tone logo on a sleeve or a bold design on a chest, this technique is perfect to enhance the value of our apparel. Embroidery offers a classic, high-end appearance and you have hundreds of rich color threads to choose from.  Below we've highlighted a list of FAQs to help determine if embroidery is the right decoration method for your upcoming project:

How much does embroidery cost?
Final cost depends on the number of stitches in your artwork. For a free quote, email your artwork and order size to art@charlesriverapparel.com. 

Do you have a minimum quantity order? 

Embroidery minimums are 12 pieces per logo. Orders less than 12 will incur a fee.

What do you need to digitize my logo? 

We can digitize your logo using any digital image. You can send us the artwork of your logo in any computerized format such as JPG, PDF, EPS, AI. 

What if my logo is already digitized? 

If you already have your logo digitized, you can email it to us and avoid the setup fee. However, your logo must be in a DST format. Acceptable embroidery files include Tajima, Barudan, and Melco digitized embroidery files. We recommend you include a JPEG file along with the digitized file. Charles River is not responsible for the embroidery quality of customer supplied DST files. 

Can you modify the original design of my logo? 

We can modify the original size and colors of your logo. We can also include extra lettering lines to your logo. However, if you need to modify another part of the design, we may need to re-digitize your logo. 

How long does it take to have my order ready? 

Our turnaround is 7-10 business days however we are flexible with rush orders. If you have a specific deadline let us know before so we can schedule your order so we can work closely with you on the timeline. 

Can I mix Charles River Apparel styles, sizes, and colors?
