Display colours vs print colours may differ for a lot of reasons. Most notably display colours use an RGB (red, green, blue) colour model while the clear majority of printers use CMYK (cyan, magenta, yellow, black). Further to this, every monitor displays colours differently and can be significantly affected by external factors such as brightness, contrast, saturation, colour effects etc…
Colour charts are available for accurate colour representation.
Payment and Pricing
Embroidery coverage is a representation of the amount of embroidered area within an embroidered emblem design. Coverage is relative to the amount embroidered versus the areas not embroidered. For example, if 25% of the base emblem fabric is visible, then the emblem has 75% embroidery coverage. An emblem that is completely embroidered, with no fabric showing, would be 100% embroidered.
We offer individual text name emblems, ideal for front chest application. These emblems can be embroidered or sublimated with a standard font in block or script letter and numbers. There is no minimum for this type of emblem.
