Branding > Stitch Count Estimator

The Grid Method

Use the rules below, and a grid similar to the one above, to estimate your design's stitch count.

  • 1 Large solid square 25mm x 25mm of embroidery equals approximately 2 000 stitches.
  • 1 Small solid square 5mm x 5mm of embroidery equals approximately 125 stitches.
  • No letter should be smaller than 5mm, each letter 6mm in height is equal to about 100 stitches.
  • Drop shadows in your logo will translate to 200 extra stitches per 25mm.
  • Straight lines under logos typically require 200 extra stitches per 25mm.
