Our Embroidery Service


At Lavant Workwear we undertake all our embroidery onsite. We pride ourselves on an excellent finish every time and we take great care to ensure that all embroideries are level and in just the right position. We always use top quality embroidery threads and a suitable backing for the fabric. On garments with a pile such as fleece jackets we use a water-soluble topping to stop the embroidery from sinking into the cloth.

We can embroider your company or club logo and the cost is surprisingly reasonable. You will find below a pricing structure for lettering. For logos, please email us at

lavantworkwear@gmail.com

and attach your logo to the email. Any standard image format will be fine, e.g. jpeg. If you have had embroidery before and do not have your logo on computer, just photograph your previous uniform and email the photo.

We normally then digitise a sample and run it off on a piece of fabric, and then email a scan and a quote. That way you can see exactly what you will be getting before you commit to anything.

We cannot provide a price structure here for logos as there are too many variables, but the cost is surprisingly reasonable. Most chest embroideries, for example, only cost in the region of £2 to £4 plus VAT.

We always reply promptly to emails, so if you do not receive a reply within 24 hours please resend your email and check that the email address is correct:

lavantworkwear@gmail.com

A personal opinion, from many years of embroidery experience:

Beware of companies offering free embroideries!
We have lost count of the number of new customers who have come to us, having previously ordered cheaply on the internet. Some of the work we have seen produced by 'free' embroiderers is shockingly bad! We are perfectionists. Come and see some of our work, ask us to produce a runoff of your design if you wish, and judge for yourself!

Beware of embroiderers who show you runoffs on felt!
Poorly digitised designs look OK on felt, but you won't be wearing felt shirts! We produce your runoffs on offcuts of polycotton or cotton garment material, so you see exactly what you will be getting.

Have you been told the design you want 'can't be done'?
Email your design to us! We have produced many excellent embroideries from designs that 'can't be done'! We look forward to seeing you with your embroidery ideas soon.



Notes:

(1) We only undertake embroidery on our own garments. Everything we decide to stock is first put through a thorough testing process to make sure all fabrics wash well, are strong, stable and tightly woven, offering excellent embroidery finish.
(2) T-Shirts require a special backing and topping, which involves extra cost.
(3) Waterproofs require a special backing and re-proofing, which involves extra cost.
(4) Baseball cap embroideries are an entirely separate process, with centre-out digitizing and the use of a separate piece of embroidery equipment, which has to be bolted onto the embroidery machine. We offer baseball cap embroideries at £8.33 + VAT per cap (price includes embroidery and any stock baseball cap of your choice!) or £6.25 + VAT for 12 or more. The surcharges above apply where appropriate.
(5) Waterproofs require a special backing and re-proofing, which involves extra cost. Please note that although we make our best efforts to re-proof, large embroideries are very difficult to re-proof thoroughly, and some loss of resistance to water penetration may occasionally be experienced.
(6) Embroidering the back of T-Shirts is problematical due to the thickness of the fabric and does not tend to produce very good results. It can also be uncomfortable to wear, as the embroidery can be felt on the back of the wearer. Please ask us if you particularly want T-Shirts embroidered on the back, as some simpler designs can be suitable. We may also be able to offer more suitable alternatives such as heat transfer printing.

All prices are correct at time of writing but are subject to change without notice.
