Section 1: Customer/Item Information

  • Customer - Customer name, only used to display in the bottom total window.
  • Item - Item Number/Description, same as customer and only displayed in bottom window
  • Customer Supplied? - Y/N, For distributors use "Y" if we will be applying any decoration to your supplied items and "N" if not.
    • Example of "N" would be if you are purchasing Twill and a sew disk, we are not embroidering the twill onto your garments.
  • Quantity - how many items are in the order
  • Price Each - if we are supplying the items, this is the price.
    • use pricing for sizes S-XL or OSFA; calculations are made for 2X-6X and displayed at the bottom on the screen
  • Price Code - Price code from the catalog. Use "A" or "P" if unknown.

Section 2: Embroidery

  • Quantity - number of locations of embroidery that fit within a 4" square that will be on a single item
  • Large Logos - number of locations of embroidery that are larger than 4" square on a single item. This would be used for a large word on the back of a shirt or a larger than normal logo. Can also be used for jacket back designs that come in at less than 30,000 stitches.
  • Large Logos over 30,000 - number of really stitch intense or large designs per garment. Primarily used for full stitch jacket backs.
  • Personalize - put in the number of locations that a name or personalization will be put on the item. Used for names, titles, etc... Use personalization whenever a stock font is selected by the customer and the wording will fit into a 4" square.

  • Larger Personalization - Larger means greater than 4" square. Primarily on blankets or shirt backs.
  • Digitizing - If we need to digitize the logo, put in the approximate number of stitches. Digitizing is always billed at acutal number of stitches at $10/1000 stitches; minimum $40; maximum $200.
