Frequently asked questions

Why is there a digitizing charge for my supplied image?

Morgan’s Monograms has a staff of professional digitizers who use specialized software and their years of talent to change your artwork into embroidery. We take great pride in our work, and refuse to turn out embroidery that is less than excellent. You may be able to find an embroider who will digitize your artwork for less than Morgan’s, but you will not find a better embroiderer. If your image matters to you, if what the garments with your logo or artwork look and last like matters to you, you will not settle for less than Morgan’s.

Why do I have to approve the digitizing?

While Morgan’s Art Department is an acknowledged expert in digitizing, our interpretation of your image may not look like the image you have in your head. Also, the cost of embroidering an image will change with the number of stitches and the number of thread colors. By approving your digitizing you are stating that you approve of not only the spelling of words etc, but the look and styling of the image.

What types of artwork can you accept?

We can accept almost any kind of computer file. Adobe files should be converted to versions Illustrator 11 or Photoshop 7.

Why do you say the colors on your web site or downloads may not exactly match the the colors of the final garment?

Colors on a monitor or printer are dependent on the software used on your computer, the manufacturer or the monitor or printer, and the settings of the monitor or the ink and paper used in the printer. So the image you see on your monitor or printer may not perfectly match what we see on ours.

Why do you sometimes require approval of samples?

If the colors of your embroidery are very important to you (for example, if you have corporate colors that all your marketing materials must match) Morgan’s recommends that you get a physical sample (called a sew-out) of the embroidery to approve before we go into production. This way you can be sure what your final product will look like.
