An image file (artwork) of what you want digitized (300 dpi or better preferred) and in one of the following formats in order of preference - CDR, EPS, AI (Uncondensed), PNG, JPG, BMP.
The size or sizes of finished embroidery design file(s) you need with hoop sizes.
The type of fabric/item it will be stitched on and the color of the item(s).
The brand/type of embroidery machine that will be used and the number of needles it has per head and the stitch file format you need.
Any special instructions such as parts of the image that may be omitted or changed to accommodate thread and needle limitations.
Whether or not a similar font may be used or if the font must be matched exactly.
Whether or not any small details may be omitted from the completed design
When you need the finished design (the date required).
A copy of written permission to digitize the artwork if a copyrighted or trademarked item is part of the design.
Rush jobs will include a "Rush" charge of $10.00 which may be waived if our schedule permits. Charges for designs are determined by a number of factors such as design size, complexity, detail, and special instructions or requirements that may limit our digitizing choices.
Custom designs are unique creations that cost more because the volume is low, usually a quantity of one (1). If price is an issue for you, please consider using a purchased "stock" design from one of many stock embroidery design houses found on the Internet. Quality custom designs, by virtue of being unique, will always cost you more than a stock design.
