Embroiderers charge by stitch count. Normally, you will need to get your design (logo/text) digitized first. That will give you the accurate stitch count. Then you can call different embroiderers with your stitch count, and they will give you a quote.

Embroidery can be very expensive, though. Even for volume. Some text that is about 2 inches in length and about half an inch high, is about 3,000-4,000 stitches. It will cost you about $3-$4 per item, even if you want as many as 200. It will be more per item, if you want less.

If you are talking about a design/logo, that same measurement will probably be more stitches, which is more money.

Very expensive.

Hi Res, your best bet in looking for an embroiderer is to just shop around locally (some screen printers in your area are probably also embroiderers). You can also do searches online or post a "service wanted" type ad at boards.screenprinters.net

Depending on Quantity your best bet is to look for someone who specializes in "contract" embroidery. If you are just intrested in hats most of the major companies like Otto, Nissan, KC Caps to name a few, have embroidery service from their overseas suppliers, They will digitize your artwork and sew it onto the hat panels before consructing the hat. This generally gives a more professional look, and lessens size restrictions of your designs.
