How We Embroider A T-Shirt

T-Shirt Embroidery is Common

Why have a plain t-shirt when you can switch it up and stand up with an embroidered logo? T-shirts are a common piece people decided to embroidery because it is a staple everyone needs in their collection. It is perfect in and outside of work that matches with other pieces well. They are lightweight and great to wear alone on a warm day or layer it with a sweatshirt or jacket. It is a great piece to wear to show off your business logo.

Our T-Shirt Embroidery Process


When you place an order at Thread Logic we do not require a minimum order for embroidery. If you have a team of one or more we can help you out whether it’s your logo or for an event in your company. Our embroidery is free and when you add an item to your shopping cart the price won’t change. In addition, there is no set-up fee for logos. If you need to change something if your order after it was placed please contact us as soon as possible. We can change an order before it goes into the production. Sometimes this can delay the time frame of the order and we will contact you if that occurs. But, if you waited and the order is already in the production process and or has been shipped to you we cannot change anything.


Our logos are placed on the left chest of all apparel unless otherwise noted.

Machine Embroidery

First you need to pick out the design you want and save it to your computer. We send it to our embroidery sewing machine. It is important to make sure the correct materials are checked before using the machine. Next, make sure the fabric of the sweatshirt is secured tightly secured so it does not move during the embroidery process. 

Ships to you!

If you live in the United States or have a military APO address we can ship anything from our website to you. Our standard shipping takes 10 business days, but will vary depending on the shipping method you selected at checkout. We offer Rush Production which takes 6 business days instead of 10 which can be selected at checkout.
