Logo Embroidery 

 

Our advanced digital equipment lets us combine the precision of computer scanning with the seasoned skill of our expert needle workers. With each step, we take the time to provide you with the quality you expect from L.L.Bean.

 

You may use up to nine colors of thread, which we can help you choose. To ensure that the colors in your logo will come out exactly as you want them, provide us with the Pantone®/PMS color values.

 

Our Setup fee includes one design and up to two colorways. We recommend setting up a light colorway for darker products, and a dark colorway for lighter products.

 

As part of the order process, we'll send an electronic mockup of your logo displaying the size and location, followed by a digital sample for your approval.

Logo Preview 

 

You can see a preview of your uploaded or saved logo on most of our bestselling apparel. This feature is available for the most popular placements on products such as shirts, jackets, polos and fleece to give you an idea of how your logo will look on the selected color of the product.

 

This is only a previewyou'll still have a chance to approve your logo and placement before we sew it. If the Logo Preview feature is not available for the product or placement you selected, you will see your logo on a color swatch. 

 

  

Logo Embroidery Placements 

 

In the “Add a Logo dropdown” (step 3 on the Product Page) we provide the recommended placement and two alternatives for the product selected. The placements are represented on a line drawing of the type of product selected.  

 

For a uniform look, we encourage you to be consistent when selecting your logo placements. Example: all logos on Right Chest, or Right Shoulder. 

 

When the same product for Men’s and Women’s have different recommended placements, we will provide a drop-down menu for each product so that you can decide the best placement for group outfitting. 

 

Avoid unique logo placements for single units since your costs will escalate quickly if you choose many different products with unique logo colors/placements.    

      

      

Lead Times for New Logo Set Up 

 

First-time orders usually have two stages: setting up the logo and then applying the logo to merchandise. Logo setup usually takes about a week; logo application and order processing take about two weeks. Repeat orders are generally shipped in eight business days.
