Embroidery? Yes we can!

Over the years we have been asked if we embroider. The answer has always been the same until today. We recently purchased a 12 color commercial embroidery machine. We just started playing around with it. Embroidered a few things so far. We even made a glitter applique like we discussed in a previous blog post. It really is going well. There are a few things that we are excited to move forward with. One being hats. We do a lot of jobs for baseball and softball teams and we finally are able to do everything for them. The hat hoop on the machine will embroider the front and both sides we can then “re-hoop” the hat and do the back giving us all four sides of the hat. We see this as a great item to personalize with your team number. We are even going to try the glitter applique on it and see if we can make some good looking softball hats. Can you ever have too much glitter?

our newest arrival

So please give us a few weeks to roll out some new designs and ideas and check back here or on our Facebook page for new items that we are rolling out.

LOVE Baseball (glitter options versus rhinestones)

We have a fun design on our store called LOVE Baseball.  You can see the design here.  We enjoy making the design and have customized this design using several school names, and most recently a last name!  The nice thing about using glitter to make this design is the capability to customize the text to fit the needs of the client and make the design personal.

For example in this design you can find here, the only options we can easily offer are precut numbers to put on the design as the cost of cutting out names for each client would be cost prohibitive for the customer. This design is still fun and personal but not quite to the level of personalization seen below.

But with the LOVE Baseball design, you can see that with the glitter being a vinyl, we can cut the vinyl into the name or school of your choice.  Vinyl is designed to be creative and provide options!  You can see from the pictures below that we can create lots of varieties of the same design but make them unique for the customer!

This design takes a nice twist as it is a softball instead of a baseball and is on a gray shirt!

The customer chose a fun long sleeve tee with lace up neckline to add some character to this fun design.

These two clients chose to put their child's number on the baseball to make it extra special.

With the name of the school, laces, and number in glitter and the ball and mascot solid, the glitter really pops on this black tee!
