9. What kind of items can be embroidered?
The saying in our shop is, "If we can hoop it, we can embroider it." Most soft items can be embroidered. Call us with questions about your particular item at 617-567-8212. 10. What is the set-up fee and what is it for?
A set-up fee is a one-time fee charged to set up screens for screen printing or a computer file to tell the embroidery machines what to do for embroidery. Most items will require a set-up fee. For screen printing this is to develop the film screens used in the printing process. For embroidery, this is payment for the time it takes to digitize your logo, which means to put it in a format that the embroidery machine can read.
How does pricing work for screen printing and embroidery?
Screen printing is priced in the following way:
• Number of garments being printed is by far the most important criteria • Number of colors • Number of locations on the shirt • Number of screens required to print the garment
Embroidery pricing is tied to the number of stitches. A garment of 3,000 stitches is going to take much less time on the embroidery machine then a design of 50,000 stitches. Pricing is also dependent on the number of garments embroidered. Colors are not normally a pricing factor unless there are more then five colors in the design.
