We offer applique on many of our embroiderable products and this is a guide to the ordering process and on the end product you will receive.

Applique size

We will size the applique according to the product it is going on.  Mint backpacks and lunch totes generally are constrained to four inches in width or height, which ever comes first.

 

Towel wraps are constrained to six inches in width or height, which ever comes first.

 

Nap mat blankets are also constrained to six inches in width or height, which ever comes first.

 

Patterns
We offer many applique designs and show them stitched out at the 4" x 4" (smallest) size.

 

Fabrics
We offer many different applique fabric choices.  When choosing the fabric and pattern, keep in mind the applique size and how the applique design uses fabric.  A smaller design that does not use a lot of fabric may not show the pattern elements you had in mind.  Because of this, we try to show every fabric actually used in a 4"x4" design.

 

Fonts
Most of our applique designs are 'split' with a name embroidered in the middle.  At the 4" x 4" embroidery size, this gives about 1/2 inch for the name height.  Split design appliques look better when the name in a particular font does not have extreme highs and lows.  We have an example of this.  We suggest using our font preview function when picking the embroidery to help screen font choices for your desired name.

 

Thread colors
If personalization was chosen along with the appliqué, we embroider the outline of the appliqué as the same thread color as the personalization.  If there is no personalization ordered, just a design element, we will embroider the outline in a color element complimentary to the fabric choice and/or the item being embroidered.
