Almost all of our products can be decorated with your logo or message – in fact, that’s exactly what the majority of our clients are looking for when they choose to work with us.
We offer a variety of decoration services, from embroidery to screen printing and just about anything else you can dream up. Most of our embroidery is done in-house at our Winnipeg location and we have long-term partners meeting the remainder of our needs.
Getting a Quote
If you’re interested in ordering some decorated products the best thing you can do is contact us for a quote. As much as we’d love to be able to list prices online for every possible scenario, there are simply too many moving parts to do so accurately. Instead, we can offer you a no-pressure, no-obligation custom quote based on your exact needs.
When contacting us for a quote it’s a good idea to have the following available:
- The style of decoration you’re interested in
- An idea of what product(s) you would like to have decorated and roughly how many you’ll want
- The location on the product that you would like decorated (sleeve, chest, full front, back, etc.)
- A copy of your logo or design that you can send over for review
That said, don’t worry if you don’t have all the info ready. The account rep you speak with will be happy to walk you through all of your options and considerations.
Decoration Methods: Pricing and Availability
There are a number of factors to consider when ordering decorated product. Here we’ll touch on the most important considerations of our two most common decoration methods.
Free Embroidery: Most orders of 12 or more pieces are eligible for free chest, sleeve, or back neck embroidery (subject to some conditions)
Setup Fee: All embroidery orders (including those eligible for free embroidery) are subject to a $75 setup fee for first-time use of a logo. This covers the costs of getting your logo converted into a format that our embroidery machines can process. This fee is not charged for re-orders of the same design or if you are able to provide us with a suitable copy of your design in an embroidery stitch file.
Embroidery File Formats: Formats that we can generally accept are: PXF, POF, and DST. If your embroidery file is in a different format please send it over when requesting a quote, and we’ll see if it can be read by our software.
Locations Available: Embroidery can generally be placed anywhere on a garment, but the most common locations for a shirt or jacket are left-chest, sleeve, back neck, or full back.
Price Considerations: The biggest factor affecting embroidery pricing is the number or stitches in the design, which generally increases along with the design’s size or complexity. The number of colours in the design is generally not a factor in pricing.
Artwork Requirements: Screen-printing doesn’t require any specialized artwork files. We simply need a reasonably high-quality copy of your design. Vector art is preferred but any standard image file will do as long as it’s of a high enough resolution.
Artwork File Formats: Acceptable file formats are AI, EPS, SVG, JPG, PNG, TIFF, and others.
Locations Available: Screen-printing can generally be placed anywhere on a garment, but the most common locations for a shirt or jacket are full front or full back.
Price Considerations: Screen-printing prices are impacted by both the size of the location being printed, and the number of colours in your design. Setup and printing fees will need to be calculated on a case-by-case basis so please contact us for a quote.
Can you decorate an item I provide myself?
At this time we do not offer decoration services for items not purchased directly through us. Check with small local embroidery shops in your area – they often offer this service.
Do you offer decoration services for a single item?
We do not offer decoration on single pieces as it is simply not cost-effective to the customer given how our production process works. Our minimums generally start at a dozen pieces and that’s usually enough to qualify for our free embroidery offer. If that’s still too much product for what you need, you’re not necessarily out of luck. There are shops that specialize in these sorts of services but you should be prepared to pay a premium for your one-off order.
I’ve previously had a design embroidered through another company. Will I still need to pay a setup fee to have something embroidered with you?
If you’re able to provide us with a copy of your embroidery stitch file and it’s an appropriate format for our machines we can absolutely use your existing design without needing to charge you a setup fee.
Do you offer embroidered personalizations?
Yes, we are able to provide you with personalizations such as names or a short message. These are typically embroidered alongside your primary logo or design, onto a secondary location such as a sleeve or chest. Due to the added production time and costs involved, personalizations always necessitate the charge of an additional fee which will depend primarily on the quantity required.
