Making Your Company Look Good One Stitch At A Time

Information and Disclaimers 

Estimating the number of stitches in a design.  1sq inch of embroidery will be approximately 3,000 stitches.  There may be other factors that affect your stitch count, such as fabric type, color or intricacies of your logo/design.

A left chest design will be approximately 6,000 stitches for the simple average logo.  You have an area of 3-1/2" sq. to work with.  

A cap design is generally 2.75" or less in height on a low profile cap.

What will it cost?  That's the big question.  The embroidery process takes time, time to digitize the design, time to run a sample, time to run the job, trimming, packaging, billing ect.  We charge for our time, experience and the care that we give to each customer.  We believe that you wouldn't work for free so neither should we.  

We give a fair price quote, if you want it for free or next to it, we're not the one for you.

Will my art work be ok?  Line art is the best to work from.  If you remember that thread and needles have dimension where the printed page doesn't then it's ok.  It's possible to get a lot of detail in embroidery, it simply adds to the stitch count and the cost. 

Please remember, what looks great on a computer screen may not look great when embroidered

We can work from almost anything, we've had charcoal sketches, photo copies of photo copies, pins and the one that works the best, vector images.  

We can take almost any file format and convert it into a image we can use.  

Can I pick my own colors?  Sure you can, we recommend it..  There are thousands of thread colors to choose from, just as there are quite a few choices in apparel.  If you'll tell us what your idea is we'll be more than happy to find just the right colors to meet your need.  If you know the Panatone C number we can work from that. 

Please remember, what looks great on a computer screen may not look great when embroidered.

What can you embroider on?  Anything we can get a needle though.  Wedding dress panels must be embroidered prior to assembly.  Quilt Panels, just the panels please.

What kind of thread do you use?  For good color fastness then we use polyester.   

Can you use metallic threads?  Yes we can

Where can you embroider?  Almost anywhere, but we must be able to get the arm of the machine into the area and it must be able to move afterwards.

Can I supply the item to be embroidered? Yes you can.  


BIG DISCLAIMER, WE ARE RESPONSIBLE ONLY FOR THE VALUE OF OUR WORK.  THERE IS AN INTRINSIC SCRAP RATE IN THE EMBROIDERY PROCESS SO SEND EXTRAS.  WING TIPS RESERVES THE RIGHT NOT TO EMBROIDER ON THE SUPPLIED ITEMS IF WE DEEM IT TO BE UNSUITABLE FOR EMBROIDERY.

WE WILL NOT EMBROIDER ONE OF A KIND ITEMS.  EXAMPLE, GRANDMAS Hand Made Tablecloth unless you will hold us harmless for damage.

Just a few more things to think about,

If it's waterproof when we start, it won't be when we're done. 
Embroidering leather punches holes in the leather.
