Q: Why should I buy my logoed uniforms & merch from Activ Embroidery Designs?
A: We offer personal, approachable & responsive service. We listen and take the time to ensure you'll receive the right product for its intended use. We offer embroidered or printed swatches of your logo before decoration to make sure it's the right size, colour and position. We meet or exceed deadlines and are always in contact if a delay or other issue arises.
Q: What is the ordering process?
A: Once you've chosen and processed your order at the checkout, we'll issue a tax invoice and payment options. Once the funds are received, we'll process your order.
Please email your artwork with your Order Number to email@example.com (please also list any requirements in terms of logo size, placement, colour or anything else you think relevant. We will contact you to confirm these details to make sure you receive exactly what you've requested).

Multiple logos on the same garment requires the payment of additional Setup & Embroidery charges.

A: For embroidery work, please supply good quality jpeg, bmp, pdf or eps files. All print work requires native pdf or eps files converted to curves. Any artwork file not clean enough to use may incur extra charges but we will always discuss this with you first.

A: The embroidery included with the garment items online is left hand side pocket position, limited to approximately 10k stitches, 5 colours and about 100mm x 40mm area. If in doubt, please email your logo first for confirmation. If your logo exceeds the limitations or you need multiple embroideries on the same item, we'll confirm the costs with you before starting any work.
