Greek Letter Tips

  • As long as the colors you’ve chosen for your thread, fabric, and garment look good together, then the finished item will look good. Changing the sequence of threads and fabrics makes only a little difference to the final feel of your garment, so don’t let yourself become over-concerned with the detail.
  • Our most basic, flat rate gives you tons of options. From thread colors to fabrics to garment choices, you have all the flexibility you could want. In fact, if you’re unsure about some options, feel free to ask our customer service representatives, as they know from experience what works.
  • We offer both satin and zigzag stitching. Satin stitching is our default standard and included with our pricing. A garment sewn with satin stitching will look better and last longer than one sewn using zigzag stitching. We always recommend satin stitching, over zigzag. Probably 95% of the Greek Letters we create are done with satin stitching.  To see some up close examples of satin and zigzag stitching, please check out our Greek Letter gallery.
  • If you want to bring in a fabric of your own choosing, please try to select a hearty fabric. Fabrics that are very thin don’t always work with the appliqué process as well as thicker fabrics. They can bunch and stretch, and might not hold up as well over time. We’d much rather sell you a garment that looks great for years to come.
David and Left Coast T-Shirt Company helped us out in a bind. We needed a fairly challenging embroidery job produced in a short amount of time. We received proofs, made changes and got our shirts back with time to spare. The team at Left Coast really helped guide us through the process of picking out shirts and helped in weighing the advantages and disadvantages of each one we looked at. I would encourage anyone who is looking for apparel to visit Left Coast T-Shirt Company.
