Q: - Can I resize the embroidery designs?

A: - Officially, we don’t recommend resizing the embroidery designs. That said, people often have success making them about 10 percent larger or smaller, maybe just a touch more. Halving or doubling the size of a design is likely to result in stitching that’s too dense, too thin, or just plain wonky. We just can’t be responsible for how a design stitches out at a size other than the ones for sale on the website, too many variables beyond our control.

A: - Turnaround time depends on the complexity of the design and availability. Usually, we take 24-72 hours.
