The Importance of a Union Embroidery Shop – Made in the USA
Shopping at your local union embroidery shop guarantees that you’ll receive quality embroidery each and every time. To be allowed to do union embroidery, a shop must meet union requirements. To let union customers know that your t-shirts, hats, polos, or other products are produced by a union embroidery shop, STL Shirt Co. adds the union “bug” with its store number (no. 76) on each product the company embroiders or screen prints. This bug is an endorsement of quality and craftsmanship, and states that the product is entirely union-made.
While some other embroiderers or screen printers may try to advertise themselves using the word “union,” only a shop that belongs to a union is legally allowed to print the union bug on its products. STL Shirt Co. is also centrally located in the country for quick turnaround times. We know the importance of sourcing materials, labor, and goods from the United States. That’s exactly why all of our embroidery and screen printing is done as locally as possible – right here in St. Louis, Missouri. While many shops quote a week-plus turnaround times, STL Shirt Co. can get your products to you quicker. Give us a call today at 636-926-2777 to get started.
