Free Radical Labs uses a Barudan Elite XL2 needle embroidery machine to make your art come to live. 9 needles gives us the ability to bring 9 different colors to live on your garments. We can do jacket backs, sleeves, chest logos and hats with vivid Madeira threads (we’re brand loyal). We’d love to hear from you regarding your next embroidery project. We specialize in logos and text embroidery with prices set for local small businesses.
Art Digitization $50
We need to convert your art into a form that our machine can understand. Unless you have an embroidery ready (*.emb, *dst) files we need to convert them. This is a one time fee and you own the art when we are done.
First Hooping Fee $10
Your garment needs to sit in a hoop, regardless of what it is. For any project, this is the initial labor fee.
Subsequent Hooping Fee $5
For any project with more than one piece, the second and subsequent hooping labor fee is $5 per item or location.
First 10,000 Stitches $10
Embroidery itself is generally priced by the stitch. We charge $10 for up to the first 10,000 stitches in a design.
Every 1,000 Stitches Thereafter $0.60
After the first 10,000 stitches in a design, we charge $0.60/1,000 stiches.
We strongly suggest against customizing irreplaceable or one-of-a-kind items that are no longer produced. Although we use the highest quality machines, embroidery is as much art as it is science. We work with a certain range of materials and fabrics that we have specialized in. Custom items simply may not react well to having a needle pushed through it several thousand times. Our primary focus is the fast turn around of quality logos and text – we can not guarantee that your vintage item will respond as desired to embroidery.
