Shipping outside the USA: We do ship outside the USA. Customers choose either UPS or the International Priority Mail Service provided by each country's local postal services. In either case, our shipping charges do not include border tax, import fees, VAT or any associated border collection fee. Our packages include a Shipping Invoice as part of its labeling, the amounts charged are based on that Invoice. We do not control these fees in any way.
Shipping times outside the USA: UPS is the fastest way to ship products and can also be the most expensive. The International Priority Mail Service is less expensive and is often slower delivery. Delivery to London can be anywhere from five to 10 days after we ship the package using the International Priority Mail Service.
Our prices are the best in the business, our customer service is fully committed to providing each customer with five-star quality attention.

Stitch Counts -- What are they? Your "Stitch Count" is the number of stitches the machine uses to complete your logo. Complex and large logos require more "stitches" than simple logos. If you do not know your "Stitch Count", then just choose the "Standard Stitch Count" option during checkout. Our Art Department will advise you if more stitches are needed to complete your design perfectly.
Metallic Threads -- We are so happy to offer shiny metallic threads for you! We have a metallic silver and metallic gold thread you may use in your embroidered logo. Sparkle things up a little. Metallic threads are part of your stitch count, so if you want to use one, a Silver or a Gold thread is part of your thread-count. Metallic threads add 0.35-cents to the price of each cap.
