    Hi Rami:

    I am looking for a hat for a friend of Maria’s. She is a Zeta. She loves the Chevron print. Do you possibly have the chevron print in the blue (zeta color) and we could do her initials in the grey (zeta color)? What do you think?

    I’m interested in getting 3 platters. My aunt orders from you every year for Christmas I personally have gotten 2 platters the past 2 years and love them. This year I’m wanting to give them as gifts. I have a mother in law who is very religious and loves crosses and scriptures do you have any plate ideas for this? Then my meme loves hosting parties for holidays.

      Hi London,

      Thanks for your interest. I love that you are interested in giving the platters as your gifts. They make GREAT gifts. I look forward to working with you on making your gifts personalized for your family. I have send you a more detailed email. Thanks again!!

    So I took a look at each platter yesterday and I think I have each one together: ) on page 20 top row the 3rd one i was thinking a scripture in the middle and God bless the futchs somewhere. Or even a cross in the middle a small scripture somewhere and the God bless the futchs. Do u have any different designs in the crosses? I also liked on page 20 1st one on the second row and have it say the futchs
    I would also need 2 of the memes angels, it was wondering how many names you could get on a patter I have one meme with 11 grandkids/ greatgrandkids and another meme that has 18 grandkids and great. So now instead of 3 platters I need to do 4

    • ramiparker says:

      I am going to start playing around with your ideas. I do have a few other styles for crosses that I can show in the proofs. I am willing to see how many faces I can fit in there. Names won’t be a problem. It would be the faces but I’m going to give it a shot. Send me ratio of girls to boys. They may have to be more uniformed in the design and smaller but I’m going to play around with it.

  4. London says:

Its London, Lauren, tyler, Cody, Jasmin, Ezra, Mariah, Marc, Breanna, Jordan, and Jonah for my meme Sanchez it’s 13 girls and 5 boys.

      Thanks for inquiring. If I make the raggy patch for you, it’s 10.00. If you’re local to me and I attached it to your item it’s 12.00. If you attached it (10.00) it will come with instructions on how to apply it.

    I like the remarks on pricing embroidery however; I wonder if the designs is over say 20,000 stitches once in awhile I can’t see charging $20.00 for it plus the other costs. I have been asked to do some bandanas for a groomer and don’t want to overcharge her as I like her and think just because I do them so they will last doesn’t mean that I should charge for my way when others would do it a cheaper method making them not last as long. I want people to reuse what I make and I think the groomer agrees. But I am stuck trying to get a Price…..

    • ramiparker says:

      Thank you for sharing with me. This is something I battle with myself at times. The guidelines are just that…..”GUIDELINES”. They are used just to help someone figure out a price but can certainly and should certainly be modified as needed to best suite your clients. I do not always stick to the formula. For instance I have two designs that I put on hand towels. One is 13,253 stitches and the other is 14,133. According to the formula they would cost 18.00 and 19.00 dollars. I put myself in the consumers position and ask what I would be willing to pay for it. The designs are not that large. The 14,133 stitches contain a lot of words but only measures about 4×4. Normally an average 3.5″-4″ monogram would cost 10-12.00. The 4×4 design that is 14,133 stitches is also one color. I would be doing no more work to this design as I would be doing to a 4″ monogram so I adjusted the price to 12.00. You don’t want to sell yourself short either so charge what you feel is a fair and reasonable price for the quality of your work. If it’s more than the other person, it’s a little more. Your work will speak for itself in time. The groomer is in business too. She gets the “you get what you pay for” motto. Are you a member of any facebook embroidery groups? They are a little more private than this blog. I bet you could get some more help on pricing from members of a Facebook group….but then again, your competition could be in the group as well. Todays technology world….it can be a double edge sword. You can always email me privately and share your design with me, and I will give you my opinion what I’d charge for it. Not that I am the ruler of pricing, but it is nice to have second opinions.

      Hi Frederick,

      Thanks for reading. I would need more information on your design and your location before I can determine whether or not I can help you. If you’re not local to me I can surely help you find someone local to you to do your shirts. Where are you? Do you have your design already digitized? Do you already have your shirts? I do not have enough experience or knowledge about digitizing a design on my own. There are lots of people out there than can help you that I can connect you with if you don’t mind sharing a little more about what it is that you need and where you are.

    • ramiparker says:

      Hey….let me reach out in my groups to see if there is someone in your area that can help you. I’m in Louisiana so someone local to you would be more beneficial for you. Give me today and maybe tomorrow. I’ll email you at the email you left with your message.

    We are moving and trying to sell mother’s French embroidery and have no clue of the pricing. Can you help? We can send pics if you want

    Hi There, Do you have to sew the pocket shut? With my fast frame I can get in the pocket but to tight around arm? any help would be great.

    • ramiparker says:

      Sorry I am just reading your comment. I use heat n bond lite to make the pocket flush to the shirt….makes for less puckering around the monogram. Checkout my step by step tutorial. It should help.

    HI, I found your site because I was searching for a price to charge for monogramming towels for a lady my husband works with. I must say I love your site. So much helpful information. I am a sewer, embroiderer and now scan n cut craftier. Looking forward to following you.

    • ramiparker says:

      Hi Tonya

      So glad you found me. I wish I had the patience for sewing. It’s the following a pattern that makes me frustrated. The last time I tried sewing something more than a straight line was 10 years ago. I made my daughter two pairs of pants. The first pair fit her crazy. It was like the pant legs were bow-legged. I thought what a crazy pattern. It was on the second part of pants that I discovered I had the first pair upside down. I had the legs of the pants as the waist and bottom and the waist and bottoms part as the legs. I finished the second pair and have never bought another pattern.

      Thanks for reading and reaching out to me.
