What we lovingly call 'combines' or 'additional seams' are just that. They are any action taken to a shirt other than the straight cutting of the standard sized square.
Some examples of what is considered extra and does cost extra.
- Combining (simple) - 2 shirts (or a front and back) into one block.
- Combining* (more than one seam)
- Applique - front logo to the back side of a shirt.
- Enlarging a tank top to be a square (fill in the arms and neck)
- Polo Shirt - Trim bulk and sew the tab closed
- Baseball Jerseys - Usually, bulk removed from front placket, and opening sewn shut. We do leave the buttons.
- Pockets - Pockets need to be sewn 'shut' so that the hopping foot of the quilting does not 'catch' on opening.
- Creating a new block from 2 or more logos/pockets or other parts.
*Complex piecing. When more than one seam is involved, or creating a block out of odd shaped items, it requires more time to piece the block.
Minimum of $10 additional charge each on these. These can include but are not limited to:
- cheerleading V-front tops (these are usually pretty labor intensive to work with and usually run around $25 additional charge.)
- enlarging a tanktop into a larger block
