That's why it's called Custom Embroidery....Off the cuff placement

It's not called custom embroidery for nothing...you can truly customize what you want to say and where you want to say it.  Here's a few of some not so usual placements or items we've worked on recently.

Moped seat...check out Wrench Werks, they specialize in repairing Audis and Volkwagens.

Matching track jacket sleeves for a wedding gift...embroidered on opposite sleeves so that they "match up" when holding hands.  Awww...how sweet!

Embroidered toilet paper?  Yup, that's right...they make great favors or gag gifts.

The possibilities are endless, the only limitation is your imagination...

YES WE CAN.....put YOUR picture in stitches!

Drum roll please!  Introducing a new technique called...PICTURE DIGITIZING!  No longer do you have to make yourself look like a cartoon in order to be embroidered.  We can take almost any high resolution picture and have it digitized to look remarkably realistic!  Check out Obama...he liked it so much, he was in stitches!  Okay, that was lame, not gonna quit my day job!  Why would you want to do this?  Other than the fact that it's COOL, they make terrific one-of-a-kind gifts!  Great for a wedding gift for the newlyweds or a gift for yourself with an awesome embroidered keepsake picture of your kids.  Excellent for framing.

The fine print: The embroidery looks best on a white background and is not cheap by any means but unique and quality is rarely cheap.  No one wants a cheap gift anyway!  Contact us today for more info.
