Here are our decoration locations for our most popular garment styles. If you don't see the location you need listed, don't worry. Feel free to ask us and we should be able to tell you if we can decorate in that position or not.
You can download our embroidery hoop guide to help determine if a design will fit at a certain size here. Images are at 100% scale for easy printing and measuring.
Sizing: Typically sized between 2" and 4" wide or about 3" tall.
This is one of the more common placements.
Can be placed above a pocket or on a pocket if the pocket is large enough.
Some garments with Inside pockets (jackets, etc.) may not be able to be embroidered on this placement. We will sew pockets shut by request only.
Garments with safety striping can be decorated near the stripe, but not covering the stripe.
This placement is centered on the garment between the left and right chest.
Sizing: This size can be the same as left chest or a little larger, but smaller than full front sizing.
Sizing: Typically sized between 2" and 4" wide or about 3" tall.
Placement: On short sleeved garments the placement is just above the hem, about a half an inch. On long sleeved garments the placement is on the bicep area.
We are currently not able to embroider lengthwise down a sleeve. See our screen print options if you are interested in this type of decoration.
Cuff placement is heavily dependent on the garment style and so is the design sizing.
Sizing: On closed cuff garments (long sleeved polos, sweatshirts, jackets etc.) the maximum width for this placement is 2.5" wide. On dress shirts or cuffs that can be opened the maximum size is 3.5" wide.
Options: ON cuff or just above cuff.
There are some garment styles that ON cuff is not possible, for instance, if the cuff is very narrow and is not a stretchy fabric.
Sizing: On Adult size garments, typical design sizes range from 8" to 12" wide or up to 10" to 12" tall. On Youth size garments, typical design sizes range from 6" to 10" or up to 8" to 10" tall. Some style garments will have limited space available for the design (sweatshirts with front pockets, etc.).
Placement: The design starts near the top of the shirt, between 1" and 3" from the hem.
We are not able to decorate full front placement on garments that have a front breast pocket.
This is an option for garments with either a zipper down the front or buttons.
The design is split on either side of the zipper. We cannot embroidery on the zipper but each half of the design is placed as close as possible to the center of the garment, leaving about a 1" gap in the design.
On baseball style button shirts we can nest the design between the buttons close to the edge and get an almost seamless appearance of the design. On the side with the buttons the design is duplicated underneath so that the top layer with the button holes lays over it creating little visible interruption of the design.
Sizing: The size for these designs is the same as full front, or based on the location of the buttons for available space.
Sizing: Size of the design on a hood can be up to 4" wide.
Placement: This placement is centered at the top of the hood near the hood seam.
Options: Read while hood is down, Read while hood is up.
We can sew over the laces on request. This will prevent the laces from being functional.
Placement: At the tip of the collar on either the left or right side.
Sizing: Typically this is a very limited size area and will vary depending on the garment style.
This is an option on garments with a crewneck collar.
Placement: Vertically centered on the collar on either the left or right side.
Sizing: Size can be up to 3.5" wide, but the height is limited to the height of the collar, which may only be up to 1" tall.

Placement: Full Back is placed over the shoulder blades near the top, Middle Back placement starts at the bottom of the sleeve openings, Lower Back placement is about 3" from the bottom hem.
On hooded garments the standard Full Back placement of the design is a little lower to maintain the readability of the design while the hood is down.

Placement: On Blankets this is the most common placement of a design.
Sizing: Typical size is 3" to 4" wide, however due to the large amount of space on a blanket we can make it much larger by request.
