Small text and details are the most difficult thing to deal with when it comes to embroidery. We can embroider almost anything however there are some limitations. I know that often times you want to say as much as possible but sometimes less is more. Some people will want to put a whole paragraph worth of words in a small left chest design and that just isn't possible. It takes two needle penetrations to make one stitch so size does indeed matter. The easiest way to tell if the amount of text you want can be embroidered in the space you want, is to try writing it with a crayon. If you can accomplish it with a crayon, chances are it can be embroidered.
To be seen, or not to be seen, that is the question. A lot of times, customers will say, "my logo is blue so I want to purchase blue shirts." That's not a problem if you want to do tone on tone embroidery which is matching the the thread color closely to the fabric color. However, if this is not your intention, choose a contrasting color for your garments. This little tip will help you tremendously in maintaining the desired color of your logo. :)
