With special attention to detail, we use a new, pliant ink for our stretchable fabrics, which adds flexibility and longer life to images applied to suits and technical shirts.

Text on Collars and Stripes

To embroider text on the collar of your custom technical shirt we use Helvetica Bold, all capital letters. We prefer to embroider no more than five letters to retain stretch and ensure comfort, but you can request more letters, and even logos. For text there is no setup charge. The cost to put text on the collar depends on the number of garments, 1-8 garments is $6, 9-35 garments $3.50, 36-59 garments $2.50, and more than 60 garments only $2 per shirt. You can order text on the collar of your technical shirts when you speak to our order desk.

Text Down a Stripe
A bold way to let them know you're coming. You can put large text down an armstripe or a vertical stripe on a suit, even down a pair of trou or tights. We will enlarge and spread your text as needed for maximum visibility.

Text down a stripe can be oriented either Vertically or Horizontally. Your text will be 1.5" wide within a 2" wide finished stripes. Standard length of text is 17 inches long, but can be longer for an additional charge.

Stacked Text
Vertically stacked text is the same on either side of the body, can be read from all angles. See Wisconsin image above.

Horizontal Text
Horizontal text is directional, different on each side of the body. On the arm, it is best read when arm is reaching forward. On tights or shorts it is best read when leg is bent (sitting in boat).
