As standard we embroider garments as shown in the diagrams on this page, however if you would like to embroider in a different location on the garment we would be happy to advise the possibilities.

Embroidery will be placed on the left breast (as worn) of the garment.

On chefs wear, it will be placed outside the second and third button from the top. If the jacket fastens both ways, it is possible the embroidery will be partly obscured when the jacket is fastened right front over left. If any other position is required, please advise.

On shirts and other jackets, embroidery will be placed above the breast pocket, left breast usually.
