As a buyer you know that all stores for any service or product are not created equal. It is comforting to realize that you can shop "local" across the 48 United States. Phone calls are free or cheap, email is quick and free, and ground delivery from Miami to Seattle is about a week. When selecting an embroidery store to complete your order, you have a few questions that need to be answered before you place a custom / non-returnable order and pay for it with money that does not grow on trees, but is earned with sweat and effort. Shopping online for embroidery saves you money and time.
If you have not purchased custom embroidery of your corporate, event or team logo before or if it has been awhile, you may not know ALL of the questions and anticipated answers. Here is where the free expertise of an industry leader, True to Size Apparel comes into play. I suggest you take a few minutes after downloading their free Embroidery Buyer's Guide and learn or refresh your knowledge on this very important topic. After all, you want to get excellent quality at a fair price. You want delivery promptly without paying a rush charge and you do not want any unexpected surprises that may ruin your efforts.
Do you have a logo? If so, are you comfortable that it will suit the purpose of your present order? True to Size Apparel has a free online logo design studio that you can use to customize your logo or create a new one. That studio also provides a "mock-up" which is extremely useful to show the approximate location of where your logo is to be sewn. A picture is worth a thousand words and that picture will be the guide to the embroiderer as to where you want your logo to be.
Sometimes people get confused as to the left chest or right chest location when describing where you want the logo. You should write it as "the wearer's left" or "the wearer's right" instead of merely "left chest" or "right chest" as the perspective will differ.
Embroidery stores may have a limited access to what styles you can pick from. Shopping can be fun and you can get something others will be proud to wear or carry. True to Size Apparel is as near as your computer and has over 120 styles of polo shirts, as an example, of just how likely it will be that you will find what you need and not be forced to buy something different that what you had intended to buy.
When picking one from the thousands of embroidery stores to order from, remember that it is the TOTAL cost of your order that matters to me. True to Size Apparel has tons of customers as far away as the Bahamas, Australia and Africa. They know that they are competing with the embroidery stores near me or down the street from you and they are known for rush orders at non-rush prices, delivery equal or better than anyone and a total price that will paint a permanent smile on your face.
