Crown specializes in large orders that require world-class embroidery, and have been offering state-of-the-art embroidery technology for contract orders for nearly 35 years. We use Barudan embroidery machines and our Hoopmaster technology that ensures perfect logo placement and quick turnaround on the largest of orders. We complete most orders within 5-8 days, and also offer a 2-day service for rush orders.

Direct Embroidery

Crown can facilitate a throughput of approximately 6200 units in a single shift, employing 300 heads of state-of-the-art Barudan equipment.

Direct embroidery refers to the process of applying an embroidered logo directly to the item. In this process, the embroidered logo actually becomes a part of the item itself. Crown specializes in large orders that require world class embroidery.


Appliques are available in various customizable fabrics and patterns. A sew file is then created to add applique stability and detail to your specific logo design.


We hand-steam each item after the embroidery is complete to make sure that all logos lay flat and look perfect.

Folding & Bagging

We use special technology to fold and bag each item, meaning that every product arrives ready for display.


For those clients who need tagging, we can add any tags to products before shipping them out, to ensure that items can ship directly to the retailer and be ready for sale.
