Garment Care

Most care instruction labels pertain to the garment and not to the embroidered or screen printed pattern. Special care should be taken when laundering embroidered or screen printed garments. Atlantic Embroidery Works cannot be responsible for any consequential damages to embroidered or screen printed garments.

Yes. All embroidered garments should be washed with a mild detergent. If necessary, a small amount of chlorine bleach can be used. Non-chlorine bleach in accordance with product instructions is preferable. Follow these instructions to safely clean your embroidered and screen printed clothing:

Machine wash in cold water on the ‘delicate’ wash cycle If possible turn item inside out If color residue appears in the water, rinse first in lukewarm water and then cold water several times until the rinse water becomes clear Remove the garment promptly after the wash cycle is complete Never leave any piece of embroidered clothing soaking in water or lying in a pile while wet Do not wring out embroidered clothing; hang to let dry Do not rub stained embroidery. Call us for additional care instructions.

Embroidery may be dry-cleaned. However, extreme care should be exercised when dry cleaning. Special care must be taken when dark shades are dry-cleaned. Avoid using any pre-spotting agents.

Garments that are embroidered with Madeira's 100% polyester vibrant color glossy embroidery thread are resistant to chlorine bleach. Polyneon is the ideal thread for embroidering on uniforms, safety garments and commercial linens. Items using Polyneon can be industrially laundered when proper procedures are followed, as outlined by the International Fabricare Institute. Please call or send a fax for additional details.

Because each of our embroidery/monogramming, screen printing and promotional product orders is completely custom, we have no way to provide standardized pricing. Let us know the specifics for your order and we’ll be happy to provide a custom quote for you.

For any embellishment process we require vector-based (.ai or .eps), or high resolution (300 DPI) raster files for artwork.

If you are supplying a raster image format, it should be saved as .tiff or .psd for one-color, or as a .psd file with layers for multi-color images, whenever possible.

Please remember to convert all text to outlines or curves as opposed to editable fonts, when submitting a file.

We also require PMS/ Pantone colors for corporate logos.

All art files submitted may require additional revisions, resulting in design charges, at a rate of $25/hr ($15 minimum), or via custom quote.

If you have a digitized embroidery file, we require either a .dst or .emb format. We will also require artwork to verify colors.

Camera-ready artwork helps us deliver the highest quality in our embroidery, screen printing and promotional products.

“Camera Ready Art” is the term used in the printing industry referring to a digital document that is ready to be printed. For a document to be Camera Ready means that we can use the digital art file “as is,” and that no file editing on their end is required start printing your order.

Professional black and white mechanicals and black mechanicals on high-gloss paper make good camera-ready art.

The following are not camera-ready:

Photocopies, pen and/or pencil drawings, newspaper or Yellow Pages ads, Business cards, Letterheads, Raised thermographic printing

Although we can digitize artwork in these formats, the quality will only be as good as the material you supply.
