We guarantee a superior stitch and we pay attention to every intricate detail. In fact, we believe that embroidery goes beyond just stitching. We take pride in our ability to see our customers’ visions and translate them into artistically embroidered pieces.

The appearance and durability of every embroidered design is the direct result of the digitizing. Our quality control begins with our experienced in-house digitizing team. Our digitizers personally test every design to verify suitability for various fabric types, design registration, and clarity of details.

Artwear Embroidery continues to think outside of the box when it comes to embroidery. Add dimension to your design by implementing a different technique using a mixed media application, fringe, print or trapunto.

Our team produces custom made applique for a wide range of applications such as Team Name and Numbers, Large Logos, Vintage or enhancements to traditional embroidery designs. We are able to decorate unique locations on bags, hats and shirts, embroider on thick leather or make custom leather applique’ shapes, and even embroider off the edge in certain applications.

Laser Etching

Laser Etching on Polyester products “melts” the top layer of fabric creating a smooth, tonal design. Laser Etching on Cotton & Cotton Blends removes the dye, creating a design in the color of the native fiber. Non-colorfast and over-dyed fabric will not hold integrity of design in laundry. Laser Etching works beautifully on most leather, vinyl, polar fleece, medium color polyester/performance wear, poly blends and wood.

Also great on bill of finished caps and visors! Laser Etch is NOT RECOMMENDED for headwear (except on bill), or through pockets on bags or pockets in lined jackets, fabrics w/ specialty finishes (water-repel or repel & release), or Non-Colorfast fabrics, or very dark or very light colors.
