The Process Of Our Embroidery Services

The process your embroidery project is done with an electrical computer sewing machine called an embroidery machine that is capable of going up to 1200 stitches per minute. This is how we can offer you these services. The embroidery machine uses needle and thread in order to sew points with a variety of stitch styles in order to make every stitch complete a portion of the embroidered design. Embroidery is available with a wide variety of yarn colors and they are often pantone matched perfectly to your brand or customers brand guidelines. Our favorite embroidery twine consists of polyester, and good news, you can get it even when your order is custom!

Ottawa's Insight Into The Importance of Thread Quality

Just like printing, embroidery thread comes in a wide variety of fabrics such as rayon, polyester, cotton (often call embroidery floss) and silk just to name a few. To most eyes no differences will be seen but to us decorators, the embroidery strands play an important role on the quality of finished embroidery.


Custom But Standard for Embroidery Project

Our standard thread fabric is a polyester multifilament strands from Isacord and it comes in a variety of colors. Being that it is polyester, the twines will not change states meaning that it will not shrink, fade or bleed so it is a very versatile embroidery floss. Our services contain a wide selection of items that will make you logo stand out.

Metallic Thread in Our Embroidery Shop

As the name suggests, the metallic thread is a strand that is made out of a polyester and poly-amide wrapped together. The floss is constructed with a continuous filament core that is twined with metallic foil in order to add the shine feature to the embroidery filament. As you might think, Ottawa businesses obviously like this one since it screams custom! If you want it be even more custom, mix it with some printing on a shirt!

Fire Retardant Stitchery Thread

The fire retardant embroidery thread is a specialty embroidery filament that is used for embroidery on flame-retardant and heat-protective apparel. Even if it's custom, the embroidery strand has capabilities that make the thread self-extinguishing and non-melting capable of resetting up to approximately 200°C (either on caps, jackets or shirts). It is interesting since it is not something you can do when printing.
