Contract Embroidery

We are a contract embroidery company, we are not your competition. We do not sell to end users and we do not stock or order garments for embroidery. By specializing in the embroidery process, we keep our turn around time to one of the lowest in the industry. We publish our current turn around time daily and we ship 99% of all orders on time. Our technology forward online order access system is unique to RGR and our customers giving them online access to their order status 24 hours a day / 7 days a week. Every step of the embroidery process is communicated to you in real time so there are no surprises as to order pricing, garments rec'd, or ship date.
RGR Embroidery operates with Tajima and Barudan Multi - head embroidery machines. Our equipment allows us to sew utilizing Flat, Tubular, and 270 degree Cap platforms. This flexibility allows sewing on garments, bags, caps, panels and virtually all materials suitable for thread.
To ensure that all sewing jobs are completed accurately, RGR has instituted the following communication steps for each order. Most embroidery errors are the result of poor communications and verbal instructions. RGR requires all instructions to be in writing.

1. Receipt of Purchase Orders will be verified by E-mail. Please review Purchase Order verification for accuracy and respond with any additional information requests. ALL CHANGES MUST BE MADE IN WRITING. REPLYING TO E-MAIL IS THE MOST COMMON TOOL FOR CHANGES. YOU CAN ALSO FAX AN RGR CHANGE ORDER FORM. See below in "Change in your orders."

2. As garments are received they will be counted and compared to the information supplied on Purchase Order for quantity, size, and color. Packing slip will be checked for style, however, we are unable to verify actual style if packing slip is inaccurate. Receipt of garments and any discrepancies will be verified by E-mail.

3. Upon receipt of all garments a firm ship date will be verified by E-mail. 

4. Upon job completion a ship notification and your invoice are sent by E-mail. If your order is for Pick-up, you will receive a ship notification indicating ship method as "Pick-up".

The above process will allow you the customer to verify the sewing information 2 times prior to production. Please review all E-mail correspondence carefully to ensure that sewing and shipping information are accurate. Once the garments are sewn there is very little that can be done to correct errors.


Change in Your Orders:
If for some reason there is a change to your original Purchase Order, you may respond by e-mail or you may fax an RGR Change Order Form.  All instructions must be in writing.

DAMAGE/SPOILAGE ERROR POLICY AND CREDIT PROCEDURE. Garment spoilage does occur in the embroidery business and must always be considered in your costs as a seller of embroidered goods. Much of the success of RGR is due to the fact that spoilage at RGR is a true rarity. Our spoilage rate over the past 3 years has been less than 1/10th of one percent. Spoilage can result from mechanical failure (a blown oil gasket) as well as human error (transposed number). When a spoilage situation occurs, for the issuance of credit, RGR recognizes the Industry Standard of 2% Spoilage Allowance per order as rounded up to the next whole piece. RGR limits its liability per item sewn to $40.00. RGR Embroidery will issue a credit on all verified RGR At Fault spoilage over 2% per order, however no credit will be given under any circumstances for errors within the 2% allowance. All orders by this definition are allowed one piece spoilage (even an order of one).

Liability is limited to $40.00 per item sewn.

Credit will be issued for over 2% of the following RGR At Fault Spoilage Only:

1. Logo sewn in wrong location. (only if different than E-mailed order verifications, Customer is responsible for checking order verification for accuracy)

2. Logo sewn in wrong color.

3. Wrong Logo sewn (only if sewn logo is different than the logo recorded on the E-mailed Order Verification, Customer is responsible for checking order verification for accuracy)

          4. Garments that become soiled at RGR.

5. Sewn RGR Digitized Logo embroidery quality not equal to approved sew-out or within "industry standards". Judgement is sole discretion of RGR. To receive a credit for poor quality embroidery RGR must re-sew the job with exact original instructions on the exact original color and style of garments.


Please remember that RGR Embroidery is your Contract Embroiderer and that there are always other vendors involved in the successful completion of your orders. RGR WILL NOT BE ACCOUNTABLE FOR ERRORS RESULTING FROM YOUR OTHER VENDORSí INABILITIES TO PERFORM.

RGR is not at fault and will not issue credits for the following:

1. Wrong garments sewn. RGR does make an effort to check your garments received against your Purchase Order for quantity and sizes. We do our best to protect you against the errors of your garment vendors. We have saved our customers literally millions of dollars over the past few years catching other vendor errors. RGR does make an occasional mis-check of garments, however, by checking the garments RGR is in no way taking on the responsibility for your other vendorís errors. If your other vendor had not initially made the error no error would have occurred. You must hold your other vendors accountable for these errors.

2 . Holes, dirt or other damage already on the garments when they arrived at RGR. We will obviously notify our customer if we discover the damage but we do not inspect the garments for such damage.

3. RGR is not responsible for poor quality embroidery caused by digitizing from another source. RGR Strongly recommends ordering a Pre Production Sample for approval prior to using a Tape from an outside source when being sewn at RGR for the first time or on a different material as all materials sew differently.

4. RGR is not responsible for any error resulting from not following verbal instructions. ALL INSTRUCTIONS MUST BE IN WRITING. For your protection all changes should be made on an RGR Embroidery Change Order Form which has a signed verification returned for the change. We use all instructions as written.

5 RGR is not be responsible for shipping related issues. We ship on behalf of you - our customer. Our standard shipping method is UPS Ground or Courier. If you have a different preferred shipping method it must be specified on each Purchase Order and will require third party billing. RGR will provide proof of shipment and once the package leaves the building all responsibility reverts to you and the shipper.


In all RGR at fault spoilage situations - please follow the following steps to receive Credit.

1 All spoiled garments must be returned to RGR. RGR will provide its UPS # for the return of the garments. No credit will be issued until RGR has receipt of the garments.

2 A copy of the vendor invoice for the spoiled items must be provided to RGR.

3 Upon receipt of the spoiled garments and the vendor invoice RGR will issue a credit memo equaling the cost of each item (Max $40 ea) spoiled in excess of the allowable 2% and the cost of Ground Shipping only.

4 If RGR releases the garments to be sold to the buyer at a discount all proceeds from the sale must first be applied to RGRís Credit Memo amount. If full credit is issued for spoiled garments RGR reserves the right to offer the spoiled garments for sale to cover our loses.


All invoices are to be paid in full. RGR must issue a Credit Memo for any spoilage or Invoice discrepancy. All Spoilage and Invoice Discrepancies must be reported within 14 days of completion on order.
