General Information

When using the charts included in this document, the measurements are based on the following places to measure.

  • (A) is the distance from the shoulder seem wear it meets the collar, down to the middle of the design.
  • (B) is over from the center of the garment, if it has a zipper or buttons it should be measured from their.   
  • All measurements are in imperial system ( inches )

Measure distance design

Recommended standard designs for a left chest should be around 2.25 inches high by 4.5 inches wide.

Shirts with Pockets

When working on garments that have pockets you may want to ignore the normal way of measuring as the design may not look appropriate. I center the design above the pocket usually about .5 inch and limit the design to a maximum of 2 high if not it will look to high on the shirt. Center it with the button hole on the shirt.

When referring to the documentation its noted on the gender as this will impact the placement, typically its 5-7” (women) 6-9” (men) and 4-5” from the center.

Jackets

When placing design on jackets take time to look for garments that have the embroidery pocket , it allows for most designs to be embroidered on left or right side. Looks professional when completed, and less chance of the hoop popping off and or hitting a zipper.

General rule for jacket backs

When working on jackets you will need to also know where to place some larger designs on the back. This will depend on a few variables. 
 Partial back  6 x 10” design  4” down  Full back  10 x 10” design  3” down

Caps

When working with caps you should make sure that the design has been made to stitch from the center out, designs that haven't been digitized for this will often push off of center. Except when you get customer that want them off center.

cap front

Depending on the type and size of your cap frame will depend on how large your designs can be, it also will depend on the cap your using. Average designs are 2.5" H and 4.5" W

back of cap

When embroidering logo on the back try to curve them to match the back curve of the cap, use a regular hoop for hooping. The Design should be 1.5" H x 3." W they can be large if the cap supports them.&

Special Materials

When working on any special materials there is no set rules on where you can place it, however you have to be able to hoop it, I often sew on the front side of a hoodies 1 inch in, I use the Hoop tech clamping system which allows me to clamp very hard to hoop items including some of the following bags, towels and carpets straps and many other items.

When sewing on bags you will need another method for clamping them. Here are some locations where you might sew some designs. Typically I make the design , 3.5” W x 4” H  but it can be longer if the logo fits..but try to center it to the best of your ability.

Bag placement

If you would like to use the software to see if the design will fit , you have the option of viewing hoops in your software.

In here you can pick the different styles of hoops.
