Embroidery Pricing Matrix

Our embroidery service pricing is based on four major criteria.

  • Number of items –  Effectively, this is the number of garments.
  • Type of Garment – T-shirt, Hoodie, Jacket, Pant, etc
  • Stitch count – Simply put, this is the total number of stitches required to create the design in thread.
  • Specialty Services – Finishing and add-on services such as patch conversion and custom backings

While we can try to estimate the price of your project based on these criteria, it’s always best to contact us directly for a quote.

Specialty Pricing

Custom Patch Conversion: Patches come in all shapes and sizes. To determine the size of your custom embroidered patch, measure the length and width of your patch, add them together and divide that number by 2. This will give you the total size (Psize) of the patch. Pricing is based solely on the patch creation.

(Length+Width) /2 = Psize
(5in      +     3in) /2 = Psize of 4

Psize * $1.00 = Patch Material Cost
4 x $1 = $4.00  Material Cost

  • Patch Backings
    • 16 mil Plastic: Included
    • Hook and Loop: Half of Psize or $1.50 (whichever is more)
    • Heat Seal\Adhesive: Half of Psize or $1.50 (whichever is more)

Additional Options:

PMS Color matched threads: $7 per color
Hard to Hoop: Add $1.00 per piece
Thread Color Change: $2.50 per color
