Also, with embroidery, it’s a straightforward, relatively easy and fast process. You send your artwork (club logo) to your embroiderer. Whom from there will first digitize your file and input it into their digital embroidery machines to have the embroidering done. From our experience, most companies can have embroidery orders completed in about 5 business days, but in some cases rush orders can sometimes be completed, as quickly as 1-2 days. This, of course, depends on the company you’re having do the work. So, always consult them before making any decisions with regards to the delivery of your hunting clubs finished goods.
Most clubs get scared away from embroidery because of the cost, compared to screen printing. But what you need to keep in mind is with embroidery you’re paying for long-lasting quality, professional-looking made products.
An Overview of Some fees Your Club May Encounter with Embroidery:
Digitizing Fees (most companies can (sometimes) waive these fees if your hunting club logo is already digitized and ready for production)
Stitch Count: the more elaborate in design your club logo is – the more stitches it will have; more stitches means the more expensive the final product
Color Count: some embroidery companies will charge you a base cost for a certain amount of colors. Once, your logo has surpassed that limit there might be extra costs associated with the additional color counts in your design
Type of apparel item being embroidered and placement location: whether you’re planning on getting some hats or tee shirts embroidered with your hunting club logo, some companies may charge an extra fee per piece. This is because they must stop and change out the completed product with a new blank product in-between each finished item making the entire process more labor-intensive.
We find that custom embroidery is a great cost-efficient method when it comes to creating custom branded apparel items for your hunting club. As, embroidery keeps your club logo looking professional, vibrant and polished for years to come. Allowing your club members to wear your brand club apparel with pride!

So, if you order a certain amount of custom embroidered or printed goods for your club, the cost per unit may decrease.
