THE EMBROIDERY PROCESS . . .
Once your logo has been digitized and you’ve chosen your shirts, the next step is to choose thread colors. Within an individual order, different shirt colors can have different logo colors – but all shirts of the same color must have the same color logos. . .
Then, we’re ready to “hoop” the garment. The hoop is then placed in a frame, behind which is placed a paper-like material (called backing) which stabilizes the fabric. The frame moves in different directions as the embroidery needle moves up and down. . .
When the embroidery is finished, any extra backing material is trimmed, and the shirt is lightly pressed and prepared for shipping. If you look behind the embroidery, you may see some backing remaining. This will wash away over time. . . While it usually takes a typical design about 10 minutes to run, machine set-up, hooping, trimming and packing will generally double this production time. . .
Regardless of size or complexity, Susan Kay’s guarantees your printed logo will become an embroidered masterpiece — a company logo you can show with pride.
