    I am not sure if any one can help, but a customer of mine has started asking me to embroider logos etc on items, i have been going to my a local sewing shop and they have been doing this but it works out very expensive, as i am paying cost not trade and they wont move on price.
    i dont have the budget or knowledge to spend £3000 + vat upwards on a machine and i am unsure to be honest were to go for any help any suggestions please as would be great thanks guys 😀

    Hi Tracy
    We embroider clothing and to be honest prices are at a real low.

    We don’t offer a trade service for that reason.

    People recoil at £8 for embroidery on 1 top, but seem to have no problem with paying £10 for a small sticker

    There are trade people out there but I feel you need the numbers to get it.

    Not getting at you xxxxx

    Hi Tracey, there are trade suppliers out there, who will supply and brand clothing, although you will have a carriage charge to pay, but you would pay carriage on ordering unmarked clothing anyway, probably.

    There used to be a booklet come out every year with sign suppliers, including print & embroidery, don’t know where it came from.

    I get a magazine each month which has suppliers in the back adverts, see http://images-magazine.com/

    I don’t know where you are in the country, but I can vouch for the job these guys do, Mark Gregg is the main man, and a nice guy too. http://www.rdmgregg.com/ Oh, and he used to do small numbers for me too.

    Hope this is of help
