    All desired text should be listed in the "Embroidery Text" box.  

    Embroidery is done in all caps unless specifically requested lower case text (not just typing in lower case; leave a note with this customization in "item notes.")


    Customer is responsible for entering the all correct text/spelling/colors/size/etc.

    Any mistakes/changes noticed must be brought to my attention ASAP in order to be made correctly. Any changes requested after the order has begun production will accrue a ‘remake’ fee as described in the Policies


    You don't want a collar with embroidery? 

    All collars come with embroidery included (on the ones that are prompted for text).

    If you would like a collar without the customization on it you can put “N/A” in both the Embroidery Text box as well as the Embroidery Thread Color box.

    You will still be prompted to select a font from the drop down menu but no embroidery will be done on the collar with “N/A” in those boxes.


    Most emojis can be added as ‘images’ upon request (see below)

    Some are more detailed than others which could limit what width of items they could be utilized on.

    There are some currently listed in the "Readily Available" listing but others would have to be added via "custom requested image/emoji" or "custom image digitizing" listings. 

    Send me a message/email to find out more if not shown under the readily available listing! 



    Keep in mind that adding any images have an additional charge to them.

    There are three categories that images fall into:

    Readily Available Images/Emojis

    Commonly used images that are currently available 

    Custom Requested Image/Emoji

    Any image not in the readily available listing but that has already been digitalized into a correct embroidery file

    Custom Digitizing Images

    An image that is more unique, something totally custom, etc, and is NOT currently available in an embroidery file type.


    Refer to the FAQ page for more info regarding images.

    Construction Thread Color

    All construction of collars, leashes, harnesses, etc are ALL done in a heavy duty black thread. 

    A border, for example, can be done via this listing: Borders and Extra/Secondary Stitching which would overlay some of the assembly thread around the collar. 


    Embroidery Thread Colors

    All webbing colors have a matching thread color that is available.

    Color Chart

    There is no specific color chart for thread.

    Since customers aren’t limited to only in stock colors as well as I am adding new colors to the collection almost daily would make a color chart insane to keep up to date.

    I use a variety of brands who individually have hundreds of colors each.

    Majority of colors can be color matched fairly easily if you are looking for something specific.

    Shoot me a message if you have a specific color/colors in mind or even a certain color scheme or shade range you are wanting to match. 

    I would be happy to send you some pictures of threads and work with you to find the prefect color/s you’re looking for.

    Other names for the "hot" colors would include names such as: neon, bright, hunter (for the hot orange), electric, safety, laser, highlighter, etc 


    The only thread that requires an upgrade would be if you would like to have the embroidery done in Reflective Thread
    That option can be found here!

    Color Layouts and Multiple Colors 

    Enter all thread colors in the "Embroidery Thread Color" box.

    Be specific if there is more than one color of thread you would like (alternating colors, different colors for different words, etc) and how you would like them used. 



    Collar Layout

    For the buckle collars specifically (regular flat buckle collars as well as Coverts), embroidery is typically placed a few inches from the D ring where it will sit on the dogs left side when buckle is low on the neck.

    All 2” cobra buckle collars have a slightly different layout. These feature the D ring on the end of the collar where one side of the cobra feeds through the ring to clasp together. Embroidery on these would come after the buckle rather than the D ring. 

    • Exceptions include when there is a handle included, then text will be placed to the right after the handle. 
    • When patch area addition is included that would be placed after the text. Will sit on the right of the dogs when buckle is low on the neck.

    Collar width, neck size, amount of text, number of lines for text, font, and additions can all effect where text appears and lays once on the dog. 

      If you want a specific location for the text please specify in the ‘item notes’ section. 


      Items such as martingales (martingale collar, martingale lead, check chain) and coursing leads do not follow this guideline for placement. Instead those are all placed in the center since the collar section does not adjust. 


      For the limited slips and Stealth collars, the default layout (with embroidery) would be for a dog that heels on the left side. If your dog heels on the right side, please specify in the ‘item notes’ section!

      Color Disclaimer 

      Many variables go into webbing/thread colors.

      Finished Products

      • The same color may appear drastically different depending on the background color that accompanies it as well as the item’s setting and surrounding context (including but not limited to neighboring colors, lighting conditions, size, etc).
      • Webbing color and dye lots can vary. Color shades may vary within the same color. Our mills may change the color or shade without notice.
      • Embroidered items receive a cleaning and pre-soak before shipments. Some colors could bleed onto white or some light color embroidery threads.
        • The "hot" colors are known to have a lot of bleed to them. Some of the others can as well depending on the manufacturers dye lots but those are less frequent than with the "hot" webbing colors. 
      • Metallic and glittery threads aren't as durable as the standard thread colors therefore I would only recommend those for dogs that are gentle on their collars, only special occasions, certain events, etc.
        • Keep collars with these threads away from chemicals, sun, and friction as much as possible to preserve their life. 

        Digital Proofs

        • Digital images do not factor in things like the textures of the different materials which may slightly differ from the colors they are representing going from digitally vs real life.
        • Metallics and glittery threads cannot be represented in their real life states but instead would be represented by the closest solid color. 
        • Multicolor/Blended and Confetti threads also cannot be represented in proof form. 


        • While I do my very best to represent colors accurately, photography isn’t an exact science, therefore colors may be slightly different in person when the setting and context changes.

        Please take this into consideration when placing your order.
