Embroidery

Our state of the art embroidery machines can produce products from start to finish all in house

First Step: Choose type of embroidery

Second Step: Artwork

Sending us your logo

To have your logo imprinted, or 'stitched' on apparel or accessories, our art department takes the logo and digitizes it from scratch, using specialized software. This ensures the highest quality embroidery on all products College Hype offers.

Digitizing a logo is an artistic process used by embroiderers where a computerized set of 'punches' or 'stitches' is generated to capture each individual part of your logo or design.

Do I need a Digitized Logo

In most cases when you want embroidered apparel, you will need your logo to be digitized. We computer-punch each individual stitch of your logo, which also allows us to account for the specific type of garment and material you ordered. This process helps us further ensure the quality of your embroidered logo, thereby preventing loose stitches or 'stitch puckering' on your garments. When the logo is digitized, we will provide you with an actual sample of how it looks stitched out. This gives you the opportunity to approve it or make any necessary changes, and also ensures you will be 100% satisfied.

Third Step: Thread Colors

We have a list of our “standard” thread colors.

  • JPG
  • BMP
  • GIF
  • PNG
  • RESOLUTION – 300 DPI MINIMUM at FINAL size

Pixel images CAN be extracted from Office files with extra processing time. If a logo was created with a Microsoft Office Application, a camera ready printout as large as possible is more effective than submitting the actual computer file.
