The polo shirt fabric is stabilised by using an embroidery frame to hold the fabric in place whilst the needle penetrates through at speed. The garments are checked by quality control before dispatch.

As worn the most common place for an embroidered logo would be on the left breast of the polo shirt. The customer may choose a different position if required.

Most embroidered logos are usually sized to fit within 3 to 3 1/2″ wide. Logos are normally positioned on the left breast as the garment is worn. Embroidery charges are based on the number of stitches in the logo so the size of the logo will normally determine the price charged. Embroidery on the back of clothing such as polo shirts, hoodies and jackets  is usually sized to fit within 12″ x 12″, but larger areas are possible.

When supplying artwork for your embroidered polo shirts please adhere to the following:

  • A vector art file from illustrator or Corel Draw is required for all embroidered logos.
  • For best results .eps, .ai, .cdr file is a more efficient format for the team at ADM.
  • For an embroidered logo a hi-resolution bitmap or .jpeg at 300dpi+ is also accepted. The artwork is then digitised so compatible with the in-house embroidery machines.

digitising is the process of converting information into a digital format . Customers artwork is organised into discrete units of data (called bits) that can be separately addressed (usually in multiple-bit groups called bytes). The artwork file is digitised so that the large hi-tech embroidery machines can read the data and produce the required embroidered logo. A sample of the digitised artwork is supplied before the order of embroidered polo shirts is produced.

once the logo has been digitised adm embroider the items ordered using the latest hi-tech machinery. these machines provide adm with the capacity and flexibility to handle any size of order.

for the majority of text only embroidery no digitising is required and so there is no set up charge incurred. adm have a choice of fonts that the customer can choose from,these are shown on the customisation tool online or please contact adm for details. if a specific font is not available an origination charge might be incurred.

Yes, but only if you have paid for the origination cost. If you have paid the one-off fee when you first ordered then you are entitled to request a copy of your digitised logo. ADM will be happy to assist. If the customer has not paid for the origination charge and the cost has been absorbed by ADM the customer is not entitled to a copy of the digitised file. It will be up to the discretion of staff at ADM if this will be allowed and if a charge maybe requested.
