Free embroidery set-up with purchase of six (6) of the same style garment. Custom designs require email approval of art after order confirmation. Small format embroidery includes 10,000 stitches. Large format embroidery 80,000 stitches. If your logo exceeds the included number of stitches, additional stitch fees will apply to the price of the garment.
Our digitization process converts your logo into a stitch-ready format that our industrial embroidery machines use to decorate the garment of your choice. There is a one-time, non-refundable fee to digitize your logo for each embroidery size. Learn more about digitization fees.
Begin the digitization process by uploading your logo on our digitize page.
If you need assistance with digitizing your logo or with any other part of your order, please call our helpful sales representatives toll free at 877-535-5646, Mon. - Fri. 8:00am - 8:00pm EST
Artwork fees and digitizing fees are our in-house labor fees to recreate your artwork into the proper format for our production methods. These files are created in a proprietary format by our artwork team in order to give you the highest quality finished product available.
A one-time, non-refundable $49.99 digitizing fee will be charged to digitize each uploaded image file for Small Format Embroidery or Cap or Visor Embroidery. Full Back Embroidery Appliqué requires a one-time, non-refundable $99.99 digitizing fee and may incur additional decoration costs. You will be prompted to accept these terms before designing a full back placement.
Pricing shown is for up to 10,000 stitches. If your design will require more than 10,000 stitches, you may be required to pay stitch overage fees. Any potential fees would be assessed during the proofing process and would be sent to you for approval. Learn more about stitch overages.
If you order six or more of the same garment (small format and caps only) with the embroidered logo, we'll waive the digitizing fee! Unfortunately, this does not apply to full back digitization.
You will only pay the digitizing fee once per digitization size for each logo/image submitted. The digitized file will be saved in your account for use on future orders with LogoSportswear and TeamSportswear. You can easily re-order the same product or select from thousands of different products (with no minimums or order restrictions) on our website. If you will be using a small format embroidery digitized logo on a cap, there may be a $25 edit fee required to adjust the design for use on the curved surface.
Please note that customers who cancel orders after a file has been digitized will still be charged the digitizing fee, even if it would have been waived had the order been processed.
Create your own custom embroidered apparel.
Digitization converts your logo or design into a stitch-ready format for use with our industrial embroidery machines. During the process, several factors are considered, including design elements & complexity, number of colors and size of the embroidery location. The more complex a logo is, the higher its stitch count will be. All of our embroidery clipart elements are 10,000 stitches or less. Simple logo files will likely be digitized for 10,000 stitches or less. The first 10,000 stitches are included in the embroidery decoration price for your selected custom apparel item. Large-format embroidery placements include the first 80,000 stitches.
Once your logo has been digitized, our sales team will provide you with a digital proof for review and information regarding any potential stitch overages. Stitch overage fees are applied to each placement location on each item decorated using an embroidered design over 10,000 stitches (or over 80,000 for large-format). The fee per item may decrease as order volume increases.
You will be asked to approve both the proof and any stitch overage fees before your order goes into production via a secure payment email. We may be able to work with you to adjust the logo and remove stitch overages before you give your approval. Please note that delays in proof approval or additional edits to digitized files may result in delayed delivery dates.
For more information on stitch overages, please call our helpful sales representatives toll free at 877-535-5646, Mon. - Fri. 8:00am - 8:00pm EST.

We recommend your artwork be at least 150 DPI or higher, preferably in a vector file format. Digitization looks best when logos are composed of large areas of solid colors with no gradients or fine lines, no photos and no small text. Text cannot be stitched smaller than 1/4". We accept the following file formats for digitizing: PNG, JPG/JPEG, GIF, BMP, TIF/TIFF, EPS, PS, WMF, AI, PSD, CDR, PDF, SVG and XCF.
Turn-around for digitization is usually around two business days. We will email you a digital proof of your logo for your approval. You must approve your logo before your order can go into production. Delays in approving your proof may result in delayed delivery dates.
Yes! We will provide you with a virtual proof of your logo via email in PDF format. A JPEG file may be requested if you are unable to open PDF files. You must approve your logo before it can be added to your account and before your order can go into production. Delays in approving your proof may result in delayed delivery dates.
Absolutely! We can accept digitized logos in OFM (preferred), DST, CND and EXP file formats. Once we receive your files, we can evaluate them and add designs to your account if they meet our stitch count requirements and quality standards. LogoSportswear is not responsible for final embroidery quality on orders created using a previously digitized logo file.
Yes! You can do this in a few ways. When checking out or designing your product online, simply leave a comment regarding what colors you'd like to change. You can also change your logo colors during the proof process via email with one of our knowledgeable customer service representatives. Once you approve the color changes, we will add your logo to your account. If you want to match specific PMS colors, please provide those colors so we can select the embroidery thread color closest to your desired color. CMYK and RGB values are not acceptable for color matching. You may request a thread chart for assistance selecting your final embroidery colors.
The digitized file is created in a proprietary format by our artwork team in order to give you the highest quality finished product available. Because of this, we cannot email or sell the digitized files. Your logo will be saved in your account and can be used on any of our thousands of embroidery-ready products, as well as in your Share & Sell™ store or Custom Shop.
