E J Dayment, a local builder required hard wearing branded clothing.
After initial consultation with EJ Dayment we sourced samples of garments that would be suitable for their demanding building projects. Hoodies and Polo Shirts were both embroidered with their company logo. As can often be the case the client didn’t have suitable artwork for us to work with but this isn’t a problem for us we re-originiated their logo from scratch with our own professional designer Mark.
“So glad we found Axe Creative Stitch and Print to supply and embroider our new workwear. Sarah and her team did a perfect job of providing good quality work garments and embroidering our logo on them. Service was reliable and professional so we will defiantly be using this firm again”.
How much does it all cost?
Embroidery costs depend on the type of logotype you have, it’s complexity and the amount of colours and threads it will use. Contact us for a free quotation. You’ll be surprised as our clients are often that it’s not out of reach.
Here are the care instructions that Axe Creative Stitch and Print recommends for embroidery.
Hand-washing and air-drying are your gentlest options.
When machine washing embroidered clothing, turn the garments inside out to protect the embroidery from abrasion. When possible, avoid washing embroidered items with items that have metal hardware such as zippers.
To avoid shrinkage, wash the fabric as gently as possible, and air-dry if you can. Make sure to follow the fabric’s care instructions.
If you’re concerned about the thread color bleeding onto the fabric (or vice versa), wash gently in cold water. If you notice any bleeding when washing the fabric, rinse the item in cool water until the color is removed. It is thought that rayon thread is less colourfast than polyester thread, and deep red colours are most likely to bleed.
If pressing the embroidered item, either use a pressing cloth over the embroidery, or iron on the back. Don’t let the iron touch the embroidery directly. Use dry heat and avoid the steam feature on your iron — steam can cause the stabiliser to shrink up, creating a puckered look.
Keep in mind that all textiles show wear as they’re washed and used. Your task is to help your embroidered creations age gracefully so that they’ll bring you enjoyment for years to come.
