needle, applying the same thickness of thread throughout. Embroidery machines can accommodate as many as thirteen unique colors for one logo & there is no extra charge for any number of colors up to the thirteen needles. Thread does not allow varied thickness or a graduated color, sometimes known as fading.
Some logos can be sewn at a lower cost if one of the background colors is the fabric showing through. Fewer stitches means the logo will not droop and that you will pay less for custom embroidery of your garments.

If you do not have a custom logo, there is a free logo design studio available. Look at the upper left of any of True to Size Apparel's online web pages. Now that you have your logo, you can create a mock up on our design studio. Pick out a garment that is similar to the style you are seeking to embroider. Your order may be for a different style, but that is alright. You want to be certain that there is no miscommunication about logo placement. There is a lot of places for custom embroidery of your company or school sports team logo, except on pockets and on the sleeves of tops where there is not enough room to insert a commercial sewing head.
Totes and other bags have limitations because of their bulk and the placement of internal pockets, zippers, etc. For best results on a large order, you should try to allow yourself enough time to get one piece sewn so as to test the result and look at the item you are going to be buying a lot of. There is something to be said about the saying "Haste makes Waste" - live in a comfort zone & give yourself about a month or six weeks when buying custom embroidery for the first time.
Pay the cheap price of $2.99 for most logos and love the no minimum order requirement.
