What is embroidery?
Embroidery is the process of recreating a logo onto fabric through the stitching of thread.
An embroidered logo is the most common embellishment type for thicker fabrics and professional garments such as polo shirts, business shirts, jackets and jumpers. Known for it’s long lasting durable style, it makes the perfect addition to perfect addition to corporate wear, workwear, hospitality uniforms, school uniforms and more!
At Aussie Gold, we have over 20+ years of experience creating beautifully embroidered uniforms and workwear for clients across the Perth region.

With over 500 thread colours available and a highly skilled staff that specialise in embroidery, screen printing, direct to garment printing and more.

Why Choose Embroidery?
Embroidery may look expensive, but it is the most cost effective method of embellishing your logo. Starting at just $8 for a standard left chest sized logo, embroidery is discounted further depending on the number of shirts ordered. We discount our units at orders starting at 20, 50 and 100 units.
Embroidery is by far the most polished option for uniforms and offers the most professional finish. The high-quality materials used in embroidery deliver a product that looks sophisticated and promotes a sense of trust to your staff and clients.
While screen prints can often fade and wear down over their lifetime, embroidery is extremely durable. In fact, most embroidery will often outlast the fabric of your garment. Which makes it a great option for clothing for tradesmen and school uniforms.

You don’t have to worry about spending and ordering more than you need with embroidery! At Aussie Gold, Our minimum order for embroidery is set to 10 units, which keeps your costs down.
Compared to screen printings 20 unit minimum, embroidery is perfect for a smaller run of uniforms or promotional caps and bags.
Why Embroidery May Not be Right for Your Business
- Complex logo: We love colourful, intricate logos! However, if you’re looking to get them embellished on workwear or promotional products, embroidery is probably not the best option for you. We find that logos with small details or gradients often don’t reflect accurately like they do with screen printing or direct to garment. If you’re not sure your logo or design is right for embroidery, just give our friendly team a call! We have an in-house embroidery department who will happily chat with you and give you advice on either simplifying your logo or helping you decide on an alternative embellishment method.
- PMS Matching: If you’re looking for a 100% exact colour match then embroidery may not be right for your brand. Embroidering uses premade threads, and while we have over 506 colours to choose from, an exact PMS matching is not possible.If you want to see what your logo would look with the colours we provide, we do provide samples for $20. If you don’t think embroidery is the right option for your uniforms and workwear there are plenty of other great options that we provide! Check out our screen printing, digital transfers, sublimation printing or direct to garment pages for information about the other great services we offer.

Yes, you can! While we always send a digital embroidery file prior to starting on your embellishments, you may still want to see the logo as a finished, embroidered product.
Our sample embroidering is done on a piece of cloth, the same colour as the majority of your ordered garments
This process does incur a $20 sample fee. This is because for us to run an embroidery sample we have to pause our 8 headed embroidery machine and adjust it for just your sample.
The minimum order for embroidery is 10 items. Due to the time taken to set up the machine we are unable to process orders of less than 10 items per order.
While our standard turn-around is 10 working days, we do everything on site making us super flexible!Depending on the stock, we can generally have an order ready in as quick as 2-3 days from approval.
Please do let us know at first point of contact if you are needing your order for a specific date.
You sure can! Different fees do apply to supplied items, as the cost of embroidery is generally to compliment the sale of the garment. If the garment is not purchased through us, the embellishment price is slightly higher.
Embroidery is not possible on all fabric types, please email email@example.com to further enquire if your item is embroidery compatible on our equipment.
The embroidery price is dependent on the below factors:
1. Quantity: There are price discounts applied at 10, 20, 50, 100 ect.
2. Size of logo: The size of the logo dictates its time on the machine, and the amount of thread and resources used. There is a price break for a larger than standard logo (size of a tennis ball completely filled in with stitches), or large back logos (Leavers numbers ect)
Embroidered work uniforms allow your staff to maintain a professional, polished style that makes them standout allows you to promote your company in a professional manner, and instil a sense of trust between yourself and your clients.
Having your company logo embroidered on your uniform allows your staff to be instantly recognizable, and is proven to instill a sense of trust within the minds of clients and customers. Embroidered uniforms will also help staff feel as part of a team in turn, boosting overall confidence.
Shirts with an embroidered logo offer a more corporate and professional appearance when compared to screen printing. With first impressions being so long lasting, an embroidered uniform will ensure you are off to the best start when approaching and speaking with clients.
While both can create beautiful looking embellishments, they are two very different services that provide two different end results.
Embroidery uses thread to create your logo- Usually added to the left side chest for polos, business shirts and jackets. It has a very professional finish, but does have limited colour options.
Screen printing on the other hand has a limitless amount of colours, and is often the go to choice for tee shirt designs for events, clothing labels and more. This is because your design options are less restricted. We recommend screen printing for tee shirts and large designs.
