Embroidery is the process of sewing an image onto garments with thread.

Crystal Clear Logos runs two embroidering machines, a four head and a six head. The machines sew exact duplicate images with each head at the same time. The four head produces four embroidered garments per run, and the six head produces six. With the aid of computer graphics, high quality designs can be sewn quickly and accurately.


Before an image can be embroidered, it must first be scanned into the computer and digitized. A wireframe is placed around sections of the image in the computer. The wireframe contains information that tells the embroidery machines what path the needles must follow. The digitizer must keep every needle movement and thread trim in mind so that the image will sew properly.

Logo and Graphic Embroidery

Crystal Clear Logos can reproduce most business logos as embroidered designs on many different garments.

The reproduction of embroidered logos requires the conversion of your design into a computerized stitching process called digitizing. Embroidery Digitizing requires specialized computer programs and skills along with considerable experience. The cost is based upon the final stitch count (how many stitches will be sewn all together) and complexity of the design. The digitizing cost of a left chest sized logo ranges from approximately $50 to $100.

After your logo is digitized, we will have the stitch count. We use this count along with the quantity of garments you want embroidered to quote your garment price.

To estimate the cost of digitizing, and embroidered logos you can send us a copy of your logo via
e-mail, fax, or mail.
