Our Process

Getting started is easy. We work together throughout the process, and partner with you every step of the way. We’ve broken down the process into a few simple steps to make it as easy as possible. Our team of professionals are ready to assist you in bringing your design ideas to life. Sounds easy, right? Contact us today and let’s get started!



The first step in any project is consultation. This is where you sit down with our design team and tell us what you’re looking for. We’ll help to flesh out your ideas and develop a plan. We’ll also provide you with a quote for the work. Once you’ve approved the quote, we’ll start making your vision a reality.


Digitizing Your Design

Digital design software allows us to take your ideas from paper and turn them into a tangible product you can hold in the palm of your hand. The software creates a model of your project that includes all the necessary stitching for it. This is similar in the process to 3D graphic designing!


Using Embroidery Machines

This is the fun part, and your design is coming to life! After we’ve digitized your project, it is time for the machine to stitch the creation by punching colorful thread into the material repeatedly. 


Shipping Your Products

After a thorough check to ensure all threads are secure, the final garment is complete and ready to ship! We are confident that you will be satisfied with your customized embroidery product. 

Our Tools

If you’re looking for a top-of-the-line local embroidery company, you’ve come to the right place. Our selection of heavy-duty tools is perfect for getting the custom job done. With beautiful threads in various colors and dimensions, you’ll be able to create stunning embroidered designs that are sure to impress. 

Embroidery Thread

The thread Shenk uses is a thread specially designed to work with embroidery and other needlework forms, often referred to as “embroidered” or hand-spun yarn. The most common threads for machine embroidery are polyester, rayon, cotton, and silk.

Thread Colors

If you are creating a colorful design, you may want to choose various colors to add interest and depth to your work. On the other hand, if you are looking for a more muted effect, you may want to stick to a single color or a small palette of colors. No matter what your project or style, there is an embroidery thread that will suit your needs.

  • Color Matching: Color matching is essential to the design process, and we’re here to help. We can custom-match an existing design or logo or create a cohesive look for your brand. We’ll work with you to choose the perfect colors for your project and ensure that the final product is just what you envisioned. So whether you’re looking for a specific shade of blue or trying to create an eye-catching color scheme, we can help you get the perfect results.
  • Neon: Neon is the way to go if you’re looking for a bright and eye-catching embroidery thread. These threads add pops of color to any project, and they stand out against darker fabrics. Neon threads are also great for projects viewed in low light, as they’re still easy to see in dim conditions.
  • Metallic: Metallic embroidery thread can add a unique, beautiful touch to any project. It looks stunning against dark colors and can make a design pop, and it’s also perfect for giving a classic look to an otherwise plain piece.

Embroidery Machines

The embroidery machines at Shenk do all the hard work for you and can quickly complete pieces that would otherwise be time-consuming to do by hand. In addition, these machines can achieve consistent results, helping us create professional and polished designs.

Frequently Asked Questions

All our work is custom to your design, the colors needed, and the type of embroidery you choose. We are happy to chat with you about your ideas and give you an idea of what your investment will be. 

We know you want your embroidery as soon as possible, so we work hard to get it done quickly. But even with high-tech machinery like ours (which stitches incredibly fast), intricate designs will take a little longer because they need more time for each stitch, not to warp or pull the fabric. The embroidery design you choose (puff, multi-color, etc.) will determine the time it takes to finish your custom embroidery order. When you’re working with a tight deadline, we will do our best to get your goods in hand and ship them as soon as possible. 

You will want to care for your embroidered items and be sure to wash them according to the instructions provided. Our items are created to last a long time, and we stand behind the production of our embroidery garments. 

We love creating custom embroidery pieces unique to each of our clients. We can work on sleeves, collars, and other places that might not be common when it comes to embroidering on garments.
