The cost of embroidery varies depending on the size and complexity of your design or logo. We do a provisional stitch count within 5 working days where after we will contact you with an estimated costing.
Here are some guidelines on the costing process:
To embroider a small or simple design you will be charged between R12.00 and R15.00 per item.
For an average or larger sized logo or design (+- 90mm in length) the cost could be between R30.00 and R35.00 per logo/design.
In order to have your design embroidered you will need a digitised format of your logo. The Redblock In-House team can assist you with this conversion for a once off fee. Fees for simple layouts can start at R120.00 or for very complex layouts can go up to R500.00.
