Whether your project is for professional or personal use, quantities of 1 or greater than a 1,000, Academy Crests is at your service. We can embroider or print your logo on hats, shirts, jackets, sweatshirts, flags, banners or just about any type of cloth item available!


At Academy Crests, we are careful to make sure that each item that comes off the production line is of the highest quality. We use the best equipment available and our staff has many years of professional embroidery experience. This combination ensures that your embroidered items will be perfect every time.

Each design is digitized using the latest Wilcom digitizing software and embroidered using one of our four Barudan embroidering machines. We currently use a 15 head, 12 head, 8 head and single head machine, all with automatic thread trim and each with a 15 colour setup.

We are also fully equipped with specialised tubular frames to allow the embroidery of base ball hats on the front, back and sides and also frames for thick materials or garments such as horse blankets etc.
