Embroidery is the perfect decoration method for golf shirts, hats and higher end apparel. Embroidery is a great way to add excellence and creativity to almost any kind of apparel. It is a way to give your business a professional and sophisticated image. Embroidery design is used to create eye-catching effects and striking images on the garments, clothing and several forms of outfits. If professionalism is what you want, then embroidery is for you. Power Image offers a full service embroidery department with in house design, digitizing, and production for complete control over the entire process. If you need mass production, we are connected with oversea companies that offer prices you won’t be able to turn down.
The embroidery process usually begins with a logo or artwork, generally our artists will set-up the job sending proofs of the logo or artwork on the items that were chosen to have embroidery on. This proof is a simple layout, to give the customer an idea what their logo will look like on the items; shirts, pants, jackets, hats, etc., these proofs usually give an idea of the size, approx colors and location. Once the artwork has been approved, it will move to the embroidery process. The embroidery process begins with the artwork proof, the artwork has to be “digitized”which is a special process of converting the logo into stitches or thread. The digitizing process is taking the logo and recreating the logo into stitches, patterns and colors, this process is necessary in order for the machine to read and be able to sew a logo.
Once the artwork has been digitized, it is then ready to be put into production. The production process begins by loading the design into the machine, setting up the colors for the job. Each color needs to be set-up and loaded into the machine, the operator then sets up the design with the specific colors loaded into the machine. The garments are hooped in the specific location, individually by hand, in order to make sure the placement and straightness of the logo will be sewn. The garments are then loaded into the machine and the logo is sewn. Once the logo has finished sewing the items are checked and sent to the finishing department. The finishing department is responsible for checking the quality, trimming excess threads, and trim the backing. These items are then folded and checked out, ready to be picked up by the customer or company.

In today’s competitive marketplace, you need to set yourself apart from the competition. Power Image is the first in Southern Utah to offer appliqué design and in house production. Appliqué allows you to produce eye-catching design effects that would be impossible to duplicate with direct embroidery. Appliqué is the process where fabric or felt is cut into a design and then it is embroidered onto the garment. Using fabric to replace fill stitches adds interesting texture and dimension to your designs and lowers your stitch count. Appliqué is something you must consider with finished garments that yield a high-perception value.
Appliqué is one of the most unique and exciting applications for embroidery and is an ideal choice when dealing with a large design with a lot of stitches of one color.
