About us

Logopolis has been trading for 13 years starting life as Schutte Motifs based in Guildford in Surrey providing embroidery services for many local customers such as the University of Surrey, British Car Auctions, Cable and Wireless as well as many local sports clubs.

In 2006 the business was bought by Stephen and Joanne Birchall and relocated to its current site in Hersham. The new site enabled the business to increase the amount of embroidery heads to treble the capacity and include printing services and a retail counter.

Our customers include blue chip companies, sports clubs from Premier League Football to local park sides, equestrian organisations as well as individuals.

Embroidery

EmbroideryEmbroidery is a wonderful way to personalise your garments. It has a timeless quality, and should last longer than the garment itself so perfect for workwear, schoolwear, Teamwear or those one off special occasions alike!

If we can get a needle through it, we can probably embroider it! Please note that some delicate or thin fabrics can accidentally have a hole made in them by the needle whilst being embroidered, so if you supply the garments, choose good quality ones.

We have a wide range of designs to choose from or if you have text, image or logo it can be converted into embroidery. To do this is will need to be digitized to convert it into a stitch pattern. There is a one off charge to digitise artwork and once it has been created it will stay on our system permanently so you can keep coming back for more!

Embroidered logos are priced based upon the number of stitches in the design, so in general the bigger the area or more complex your creation is the more expensive it will be.

Appliqué is a form of embroidery that attaches a piece of fabric to the garment to replace a large area of colour that would normally need stitching. This can be used to create badges or to introduce a different fabric such as denim or pattern like gingham to create a unique design.

We have 5 different print technologies with different qualities and characteristics. They can be combined for unique customization of your printed apparel with logos, photo’s or text

Printing

PrintingWhite Garments with digital quality full colour images

Printed Area up to A4 size- the colour print 'floats' on the white fabric, ideal for personalising clothing, bedding, or bags with digital images such as photographs

This is ideal for low quantities, such as full colour sponsor logo on a football shirt. For larger quantities we suggest screen printing if the garment allows.

Screen Printing

Screen printing is a printing process in which ink is pushed through a stencil onto a printing surface such as a t-shirts, sweatshirts, golf shirts and other apparel.

This is a mechanical process and is very good for high volumes, there are set up charges that do not make this very economical under 70 garments. This is normally a 5 day turnaround once artwork had been approved.

Full Colour Images on NON WHITE Garments

Printed Area up to A4 applied as a solid 'patch' – which can be square, round or contoured to your design,. Ideally for digital images such as photo’s or multi colour logo’s with a solid colour background.

Full 'Floating' Colour onto NON WHITE Garments

This new white on white (WOW) process gives you unique full colour printing which floats on your fabric just like a screen print - except you can order just 1, and can have it ready in 1 hour! Ideal for single or multi colour logo’s without a solid background where an exact pantone colour match is needed.

Solid Colour Text, Shapes and simple Logos

Vinyl print technology for a fantastic look & smooth feel, or flock print for a felt feel. This is ideal for garments that have a lot of stretch and need the logo to move with the fabric, such as sportswear.

Ideal for any sized print area but design must be fairly simple and without very fine detail

Artwork Preparation

Our prefered format for most work is an Encapsulated Postscript file or *.eps file, this is the originally created artwork and having this will lower any set-up charges. We also like J-Peg ( name.jpg ) in sRGB (the norm) sized at 300dpi at final size.

File size/resolution is important, and you should be aware that small images obtained from the internet can look disappointing when scaled up to a large printable area, please get permission for the image license holder, bear in mind that most internet images are subject to copyright.

You can create a mock up in Microsoft Word or whatever program you have, - but normally we cannot print this artwork and will just use it as a guide.

We may need to charge for creating some types of artwork or modifying yours so we can work from it. We will let you know when you place your order.

Designs for embroidery need to be 'digitized' as a one-off charge. This turns your image into a stitch pattern that the embroidery machines can recognise, determining colours and location. This is a very specialist piece of work and unfortunately not something a graphic designer can do with Photoshop.

Designs for cut vinyl printing need to be vectorized either by tracing from a j-peg or better still by supplying as Encapsulated Postscript file (eps file) or Adobe Illustrator file (*.ai) without any guidelines etc.

Specific fonts may need to be supplied to match your corporate identity.

PLEASE NOTE - we cannot guarantee pantone matching, - although we are usually very close, - please arrange for a sample if this is critical to you.
