Embroidery Article Prep

Embroidery Article Preparation

For the best results, your articles should be washed with detergent and fabric softener, dried in the dryer, and ironed well prior to brining to me for embroidery. Wash and dry articles just as you would if you were laundering normally.Proper article preparation will ensure the finest finished embroidery results. If you don’t pre-wash your article and your article shrinks during the wash, the embroidery won’t and you’ll end up with puckers around the embroidered area.So it’s best to pre-shrink all articles before embroidery to avoid puckering after washing. If your article will shrink significantly, you may wish to launder it more than once before having it embroidered.
