Seeking advice for custom embroidery
August 1, 2014 7:43 AM Subscribe
For my boyfriend's birthday in three months, I have a very specific gift in mind: black silk pajamas with a large embroidered Tree of Gondor
on the back. I'm clueless about embroidery. Is this doable within a reasonable (say, under $200) budget?
Firstly, I'm assuming I'll have to get the pajamas and embroidery separately. Does anyone have specific recommendations for men's silk pajamas? How much should I be spending for a good, long-lasting product? I've found some on Amazon
that look about right, but I'm not too knowledgeable about buying decent-quality silk.
As for the embroidery, should I just call around various local companies to see who can do it, or does anyone know of specific Internet-based services that would be more reliable? And what kind of price would I be looking at for a fairly large embroidered image like this, especially on silk? As mentioned above, I have three months till the actual birthday, so I don't mind if it takes a while.
Also, I'm in the US, if that's relevant.
Thanks so much for your time!
