Turtlenecks

On the neck "cuff," midway between left shoulder seam and center of cuff.  Embroider on inside, so that when cuff is turned down, embroidery is right-side-out.

Shirt fronts

Consider size of garment and shape of design.  Generally, the top of the design should be 3 1/2 - 4 1/2 inches from garment neck, centered between left and right seams. 

Shirt backs

5" from collar, centered between right and left seams.

Jacketbacks

7" - 9" down from shoulder seam, centered between side seams.

Shirt Cuffs (Monograms)

1 3/8"  to the right of button hole, 1/4" above cuff edge.  Monogram should face away from the wearer.

Ties

2" from bottom tip; with vest, 10" from bottom tip, or until seen above vest.

Robes

4" - 6" down from left shoulder seam, centered between placket and side seam.

Towels

 

Washcloths

1" - 1 1/2" above hem, or 1" above border. Can also place design in corner, angled, 1" - 1 1/2" above corner.

Hand Towels

2" above hem, or 1 1/2" above border.

Bath Towels

Bath Sheets

Linens
