We are all trying to save the £££'s where we can these days. One way to avoid paying over the odds for embroidered clothing is to go direct. This means finding a company who actually have the equipment to stitch your logo onto your garments. By doing this you avoid the 'middle-man' (of which there are many) who has no machinery and no design expertise! But who still expects to make money at your expense by adding a chunk of money to work that was done on your behalf!
It doesn't take a financial advisor to tell you it makes good sense to deal with the right people from the start, it'll save you money in the long run!
