Before you forward your design for an estimate:
- Try to keep your design as simple as possible.
- Minimise the amount of lettering – remember that on a garment the time a person has to read what is there is usually very limited.
- Keep lettering to a minimum of 5mm, as small lettering starts to disintegrate on knitted material and becomes somewhat illegible.
- Graduated colour is difficult to achieve in embroidery as is ‘transparent’ colours. Ink and thread are 2 entirely different mediums. The physical dimensions of thread are quite different to that of ink.
