Our Embroidery Process

The Process goes like this:

  1. You submit the design you'd like embroidered and the quantity of what you would like decorated.
  2. Image is either already digitized or must be submitted for digitizing (Advon can prepare your photo for embroidery for an additional fee)
  3. Our pricing system is based on stitch count & quantity of garments. Advon will estimate a price based on the quantity of stitches it will take to complete the design. Then, our team will be in contact with you throughout this process with the estimate. If you have any additional pricing questions or concerns, please contact our team here or give us a call.
  4. If garments must be ordered, the quantities needed are ordered at this point in the process.
  5. Once all garments have arrived (either through ordering or client drop-off/shipping) and approvals for design or digitizing are completed, the project can be placed in line for production.
  6. Embroidery operators set up the embroidery machines and decorate based on specific instructions for each project.
  7. Your order then goes through Quality Control and is packed for delivery.
  8. Front office workers are notified the order is complete and contact you right away for pickup or prepare the order for shipping.
  9. Order is then picked up at our Maple Grove location or is picked up by a third party shipper.
  10. You receive your order, showcasing your new custom apparel!

Yes! The more you order, the less it might be per item. We have "tiers" of cost based on the quantity of what you order and your stitch count for decoration.

Absolutely! If you are supplying your own garments, they should either be new or garments in good condition that are freshly laundered and well organized.
