Embroidery for workwear & Hi Vis Clothing

Embroidery offers an eye-catching & long-lasting way to brand your clothing

Embroidery is the process of sewing a company logo or design onto an item of clothing. At A4 Apparel our embroidery is completed in-house enabling us to have excellent quality control & fast turnaround times. Embroidery creates the impression of quality and style and is a great way of branding all types of clothing particularly those which cannot be decorated using alternative methods i.e fleeces.

Embroidery digitization

Artwork Digitisation

In order for us to be able to use your artwork we have to convert it into a format that an embroidery machine understands. This is the process of digitisation or punching. A DST file is created which instructs the embroidery machine how to sew the stitches that recreate your design. We charge a one-time set-up fee for this per embroidered design.


Embroidery is ideal for small corporate logos becoming less cost effective the larger the design. We can embroider a logo from as little as 0.40p per garment. All embroidery pricing corresponds to a logo which does not exceed a 5000 stitch count. If you wish to find out how many stitches are in your logo, e-mail us your design and we'll advise the best method for branding your clothing.

Set-up Charges

There is a minimal one time set-up charge for custom decorated garments, this differs for screen printing and embroidery. Many companies may claim to have NO set-up charges but you end up paying for them in the form of inflated per garment costs, especially on re-orders. We do NOT apply set-up charges on reorders.

Artwork Formats

We accept artwork in the following formats: Illustrator AI, EPS, or PDF. These are the preferred formats and therefore no artwork charges apply. If you have had artwork produced for your company the chances are your printer or designer will have your logo in one of these formats. Artwork saved in other formats may have to be re-drawn, therefore artwork charges may apply.


Once your order is placed and we receive your artwork we will email you a sample mock up of your design for your approval before printing.
