What you need to know about Custom Embroidery

Monograms Plus is your source for embroidery on Shirts, Caps, Jackets, Sweatshirts and just about any other athletic or corporate wear item that can support a thread and needle. We embroider for Sports Teams, Corporations, Clubs and other groups.

Q: Are there minimums for an embroidery order?

A: Yes! We require a minimum of 4 garments of the same logo for the first order. Repeat logo embroidery orders have no minimums. Once we have your logo on file you can order as little as one item.

Q: Do you offer personalization?

A: At this time we are NOT offering embroidery "personalization" on customer supplied items. We describe "personalization" as working on individual single items & gifts. An example of what service we are no longer providing is an embroidered individual name on a jacket, monogramming towels, names on backpacks, etc. Exception: personalization of a single piece/customer supplied item is offered only to our Existing Repeat Clients for whom we have their logo digitized and on file. Repeat customers can provide their own garments.

Q: Do you offer logo embroidery & personalization to Sage Colleges, Schenectady, Niskayuna & Scotia Fire Departments on customer supplied items?

A: Yes, we are offering embroidery on individual customer supplied items for Sage Colleges, Schenectady, Niskayuna & Scotia Fire Departments. Embroidery Services for quantity of one garment/ item is presently only offered to our Existing Repeat Clients for whom we have their logo on file. Repeat customers can provide their own garments.

Q: Do you supply the items to be embroidered?

A: Yes! Monograms Plus can supply you with highest quality, name-brand apparel that was made specifically for embroidery. We can also work with quality garments you provide for your group order.

Q: What is the digitizing fee to setup your Logo?

A: The digitizing fee is taking your artwork and turning it into stitches for our embroidery machines to run. Our charge for a small front crest design is approximately $35.00. A large back design would be more. We can quote you on this charge after our embroidery department reviews your design. There are some limitations inherent in embroidery such as the size at which a design can reduced to and still hold the necessary detail. We can advise you as to what will and will not work for embroidery if you send us your design via email.

Q: Will there be a set-up charge if I create a design using stock designs and stock lettering?

A: There is a small, one time charge of $10.00-$25.00 for having one of our artists put your design together from stock components.


Q: How much does embroidery cost?

A: We realize that most shoppers start their purchasing process by comparing prices. That is very difficult when shopping for embroidery. Since no two embroidery jobs are quite alike, pricing an embroidery order is a difficult task. We can tell you that Monograms Plus offers the highest quality service at a competitive price. All designs are quoted based upon estimated stitch count and quantity, and we always offer a firm quotation of price in advance.

Q: What do I need to supply to Monograms Plus for Artwork?

A: The better the quality of the artwork you provide, the more closely we can match what you are looking for. We prefer to work with good, clean full color renditions of the art you want reproduced. If you have a design that you are happy with, that was previously created by another embroidery shop, sending us the "tape" (the computer disk that created that design) from that job ensures a perfect reproduction, and lower setup fees.
