I was so pleased with the quality of their work

I was recently looking for a gift for a family member who already has everything. I went to Garlic Embroidery Studio and with the help of the owner, Carol, I was able to come up with a custom design that we used on a couple of apparel items. I was so pleased with the quality of their work and their friendliness. I will definitely go to Garlic City Embroidery Studio again. — Karen B.

Yes, we provide embroidery services for shirts, caps, and other apparel items. We also services to convert your logo or other image into the digitized format required by the commercial embroidery machines we use. In our customer files we retain the digital files and the specific thread information for colors required to reproduce the embroidery product. This ensures that the next time you need items embroidered they will be the same as earlier embroideries.

As part of our services, we can order your apparel items. We have several catalogs from which you can choose the items you need. When you select your items, we keep the information about those items so that in the future you are able to order the same items as members of team, group, or organization change over time.
You can also bring in items to be embroidered.

Yes, we work with our customers to provide personalization of items such as blankets, towel, and other linens. Personalization of these items ranges from monogramming to embroidery of phrases, sayings, or statements that are meaningful to the customer.
