Custom Embroidery FAQs

Automotive Workwear is a proud retailer for a variety of different brands. We are the largest distributor of Red Kap work wear, and we also carry Chef Designs, Bulwark, and Horace Small. Any workwear item purchased from us can be custom embroidered. For most businesses placing an order with us, this looks like a company logo, and an employee name. We can also do custom striping. We get a lot of questions about our custom embroidery program, so let’s look at a few.

  • How to order embroidery on the website

Embroidery is an added service, so you will want to go ahead and choose your garment and add it to your shopping basket. After doing that, choose “Embroidery Services” in the menu on the left. Select the type of embroidery you want to add, and then add it to your shopping basket. You should repeat the process for each item or different embroidery you wish to order.

  • Cost of embroidering a name

At Automotive Workwear, we can embroider a company name, or an individual’s name directly on the garment. If you just want simple text, without a company logo, there is no setup fee, and no minimum order quantities. The price will be $5.95 for the first line of text, $2.00 for the second line, and $1.00 for the third line per area. There is a maximum of three lines per area.

  • Embroidering a company logo

You can order more than simple text on your workwear garment. You can have custom embroidery of your company logo directly on your shirts, jackets, and more with a digitized logo. Be sure to check out our embroidery services page on our website for more detailed information about how to order a company logo embroidery.

  • Why do you need to digitize my logo?

Our computerized embroidery machines cannot read a simple peg, gif, or image file, so we have to manually convert the logo into a special format that is accepted by the machine. Basically, the logo will be traced with special software, turning it into a digitized file that tells the embroidery machine where, how, direction, and which colors to use while stitching the logo. Our digitizers have years of experience, and will provide you with a great looking logo. We do charge a one time setup fee of $79 to digitize your logo into a special sewing machine file. A sewoff sample will be embroidered and sent to you, so that you can approve it. Your custom embroidered logo should be perfect! Once you are happy with it and have approved it, the logo will stay in our files for any future orders you may need.
Adding custom embroidery to your workwear garments is a great way to promote your company name, provide great customer service, and set your business apart from others.
