Custom Embroidery Services in Singapore

Welcome to That Corner Shop! We provide fabric embroidery and printing services at International Plaza, Singapore. If you have something that you need to personalized on, please read on for a better understanding of the process.

What is Embroidery?

Embroidery is the art or craft that uses needle and thread to decorate a fabric or apparel, with designs stitched on it.

See a photo example of how it look like on a towel here:

We use high-speed embroidery machines in this process. We do not do hand threading.

However, as not all items can be embroidered due to nature of material and/or our equipment's limitation. Below, we provide a list of unsuitable items here to assist you.

What cannot be done?

Embroidery are generally for fabric item. However, not all fabric materials are suitable.

Example List of items NOT suitable for embroidery or we do not embroider on:

  1. Scarves that are thin, stretchy, knitted
  2. Thin handkerchief
  3. Golf bags or parts of golf bag
  4. Leather materials
  5. Side sleeves of polo shirts due to our machine limitations.
  6. Ties
  7. Caps or hats
  8. Socks
  9. Bulky items
  10. Items with uneven surfaces
  11. Expensive Items

This list is non-exhaustive, this provides as an illustration only

Whats materials are not suitable?

From experience:

  • Fabric materials that are knitted, stretchy, thin will not be able to withstand the machine embroidery speed intensity. The speed of the machine embroidery will tear the material apart, even at the slowest available speed.
  • They have bulky or have uneven surfaces. We cannot even fit it into the machine to begin with.
  • The grip surface of the items are too small for the machine to hold on to.

What can you bring?

Usually we accept the following:

  1. Towels are the most common, but please do not bring thin and stretchy type.
  2. Aprons
  3. Flat fabrics
  4. Pillow cases
  5. Bedsheets
  6. Clothing eg. Kids uniform, polo shirts, shirts

Again, the list is a sample. Our customer usually put names or simple text on the items.

What other alternative of personalization?

Depending on the item, if we cannot directly embroider on the item, there might be other alternatives to consider:

Name badges. We have iron-on name badges that you can either iron on or hand sew onto the item. For example, while we can sew directly on a hat, we can do a name badge and sew it on a hat.

Printing. Thin fabric usually cannot take embroidery well as it will crumbled up or tear up. We might discuss with you to do printing on it like the following image of a tee-shirt provided:

Print is usually much bigger in size, and might be more suitable for items such as tee-shirts. We advise according to the designs you have in mind and the items it to be on.
