What is a Stitch Count in Logo Embroidery?

Logo Embroidery Stitch Count

If it's your first time shopping for an custom embroidered logo shirt, you have probably encountered the term “stitch count” or “thread count”.  While technically they mean different things, in the context of embroidery, many people understand them to mean the same thing.

Stitch count, in its simplest form, is defined as the number of embroidery stitches it takes to create a logo in embroidery.  If a logo is more detailed and/or larger, there are more stitches needed.   Pretty simple stuff, right?

A logo like this one has a lot of stitches in it.

Logo with A Lot of Stiches

Some custom embroidery shops price their work by stitch count. This is because, the more stitches,  the longer it takes to embroider the logo.  The longer it takes to embroider the logo, the more it costs.

The amount of stitches it can take to embroider a logo can vary greatly.  A very simple logo with very few elements going on the left chest can take as little as 1,500 stitches.  A larger and more complex logo going on the left chest can require up to 15,000 stitches.

The average logo that we embroider at Thread Logic is about 8,000 stitches.

How Many Stitches are in my Logo? 

So that begs the question, how many stitches are in your logo?  The answer to that question isn't something you should know or care about.  You have better things to worry about than the number of stitches it takes to create your logo in embroidery.

We Offer Free Logo Embroidery at Thread Logic

And here is why it doesn’t matter.  At Thread Logic, we don’t price custom embroidered products by the stitch count.  We don’t care about the stitch count.  We use a flat pricing model so the prices you see on our website include the embroidery of your logo.  It is just that simple.

The biggest reason we adopted this flat pricing model is to make it easier for customers to know exactly what the price of an item is without having to get a quote or figure out the stitch count of their logo first.  It takes all the guess work out of the shopping process for you.

This is a pricing model we have adapted from almost the beginning of our company.  Our customers love it, because it makes shopping for custom logo apparel so much easier.
