Tips & Considerations to Estimate Logo Embroidery

Here is an easy way to estimate the amount of stitches you'll need for great looking logos.

  • Print out the grid below
  • Cut out your artwork and place it over the grid
  • Count the number of boxes it fills, then find that number in the chart
  • If your design goes outside the grid, estimate the extra grid space you need and add it to your original total.

Other Points to Remember when Estimating a Stitch Count:

  • 1 solid square inch of embroidery equals approximately 2,000 stitches.
  • 1 solid square 1/4 inch of embroidery will equal about 125 stitches.
  • No letter should be smaller than 3/16" each letter 1/4" in height equals about 100 stitches.
  • Drop shadows in your logo will translate to 200 extra stitches per inch.
  • Straight lines under logos typically require 200 extra stitches per inch.
  • Fabrics, colors, and artwork detail will affect the amount of stitches.

Note: Due to difference in computers and printers, the size of the grid may be distorted when you print it out. Be sure to check that 1-inch squares actually measure 1 inch on your printout (do the same for 1/4-inch squares). If such a size distortion occurs, you can scale your printout of the grid to a more accurate size using a photocopier.
