Think big sewing machines, lined up like a battalion of robots, droning away at high speed in perfect unison, under computer control. Our Tajima embroidery machines are huge, fast, and smart. This means you’ll get precision and consistency when we put your logo, company name, or other art on a garment. Embroidery doesn’t offer the fine detail of silk screening or digital printing, but it lasts a long time, looks very classy, and remains the favored process for companies that want to put their brand on a shirt, hat, jacket, seat back, cushion—virtually anything made of fabric.
US Logo started out as an embroidered logo company in 1990. We now offer a very comprehensive line of marketing products and services, but have continued to grow our embroidery department as technology changes, and embroidered apparel is still one of our cornerstone products.
All our embroidery work is done in-house at our 24,000 square foot facility located at 520 N. West street in Wichita KS, so you’ll be buying direct from the manufacturer, which gives you maximum control over your order. (Many “embroidery companies” outsource the work. Several use US Logo to fulfill their orders, so when you buy directly from us, you skip the middleman.)
The Technology Behind Embroidered Designs
Computer software translates the design into a “stitchable” form, then separates the colors for different thread applications. We can digitize most designs for embroidering.
We use special, polyester embroidery thread, which is much tougher than cotton thread, and it maintains vibrant color through laundering and sun exposure.
Converting Art for Embroidery
The digital set-up fee for converting your art into an embroidery design is called a “digitizing fee” or “tape charge.” At US Logo, we charge a one-time cost of $45.00 for this process. Another option is to use one of our standard fonts (we have hundreds) and choose a stock image from our library. In this case, the art elements are already in “embroidery format,” so there’s no digitizing fee.
Embroidered Products Turnaround Time
You can typically expect a 10-working-day turnaround time for an embroidery order. But we also offer rush service at an additional cost. Whatever your deadline, we’ll always do what we can to meet it.

What Can Embroidery be Applied To?
Pretty much anything made of fabric can be embroidered, but our most popular products are polo shirts, jackets, and t shirts. Also popular are cushions and seat backs for office chairs, and team shirts. Here are examples of embroidered apparel:
- o Custom polos – our biggest seller. Polo shirts are an affordable way to share your brand on employee apparel or promotional give aways.
- o T Shirts – Although not as popular as polos, t shirts look great with embroidery. Cost per shirt can be very low, if your budget is limited, or you can choose from premium brands, different fabric blends and even high-tech wicking materials.
- o Jackets – a great way to show off your brand in the colder months. Choose from virtually endless styles, thicknesses and quality ranges.
- o Fleece garments – attractive and versatile. Fleece is moisture resistant, fast drying and cozy to wear in any season. Embroidered designs look awesome on this popular fabric.

Embroidered logo designs provide an elegant appearance. Therefore, most corporate apparel items feature embroidered company logos. US Logo began as an embroidery company in Wichita Kansas in 1990. As a result, we have experience embroidering on all fabric types. Subsequently, we’ve learned that using polyester embroidery thread will dramatically improve color fastness, especially on items that will be laundered professionally.
Upholstery shops use US Logo to embroider logos on car, boat seats and cushions. Similarly, uniform companies select US Logo for the same reason. Our thread is colorfast, hence your thread colors remain vibrant, in particular when exposed to the sun.
Set up fees for embroidery designs are usually referred to as “digitizing fees” although some may still reference them as a “tape charge”. Either way, a one-time cost of $45.00 is generally charged the first time we embroider your custom logo. If we embroider a word or a name with standard lettering or you select a stock image from our embroidery library, you will NOT be charged a digitizing fee. US Logo has an enormous selection of fonts to select from. Consequently, you can usually find a font that meets your needs.
While rush service is ordinarily available for an additional cost, for the most part, you should count on allowing 10 working days for us to process your order.
