Our Services

Obviously, Albatross Creative Embroidery offers high - quality embroidery, but over the years, we found it necessary to expand the services that we offer in order to provide a truly "start to finish" experience for our customers. For the services we are unable to provide "in house," we send to one of our trusted partners who are true professionals in the services they provide for us.

Custom Embroidery

Embroidery is the handicraft of decorating fabric or other materials with needle and thread or yarn.

Albatross Creative Embroidery takes our work seriously - as the art form that it is. There is a new challenge to every project we accept.
  • The correct thread type.
  • The correct thread color.
  • The correct thread pattern.
Our creative design team, expert craftsmanship, and impeccable customer service are just a few of the reasons Albatross Creative Embroidery customers keep coming back!

Silk Screening

Screen printing is a printing technique whereby a mesh is used to transfer ink onto a substrate, except in areas made impermeable to the ink by a blocking stencil. A blade or squeegee is moved across the screen to fill the open mesh apertures with ink, and a reverse stroke then causes the screen to touch the substrate momentarily along a line of contact. This causes the ink to wet the substrate and be pulled out of the mesh apertures as the screen springs back after the blade has passed.

Albatross Creative Emroidery works closely with our partner whom specializes in creative silk screening. Combining emroidery with silk screening can have absolutley stunning results!

Dye Sublimation

Dye Sublimation, as a process is really very simple. It is the method of applying an image to specially coated ceramics, metals and cloth, using three main ingredients: sublimation ink, heat and pressure.

With dye sublimation, Albatross Creative Emboidery can transfer your actual photos to certain types of fabrics such as t-shirts, sweaters, hats and more. Contact us if you have any questions.

Graphic Design

Many times, when a customer approaches us about an embroidery project, we begin to understand that the scope of what the customer is attempting to accomplish goes well beyond - for example: creating a set of t-shirts for an event. This customer may be in need of posters, banners, a website or any number of other design / creative items.

We are often asked who we know or where to go.

Our main graphics designer works with us directly to help us optimize some of the difficult projects we are presented with and our close relationship helps us to help our customers with just about any and all creative needs. All you need to do is ask!  

Logo Design

A majority of our embroidery projects are logos, and a significant percent of those projects have issues that need to be addressed:
  • Without logo - Slight idea of desired design
  • Without logo - Need full help with design
  • With Logo - Need help with re-design
  • With Logo - Poor / insufficient resolution to embroider / print

Our main graphics designer has the tools, skills and the creativity to turn your ideas into a great logo that fits your exact needs.

Image Repair / Style / Preparation

At times, a customer will approach us with an image or idea that needs a touch of artistry. It may be an image that needs to be re-drawn or repaired due to many things including poor resolution, damage or missing content. Other times, customers want their ideas to be "stylized" with effects to give it a different look and feel.

We will work with you and your ideas to make sure the end result is exactly what you were envisioning.
