My, how the month of December flew by! Merry Christmas AND Happy New Year to All!

In Michigan, we are seeing our share of beautiful, white fluffy snow - which I happen to love and appreciate. We just got another 7 inches last weekend and the snowmobilers in the area and extremely happy about that.

2007 was a good year for OMD and we look forward to 2008. If you haven't tried us yet, drop us a line and allow us the chance to prove our quality and service to you. ;-)))

Wishing everyone a wonderful new year ahead!!

If you stopped by OMD over the past month or so, you would see alot of camo-wear going out the door. Today marks the opening season of Deer hunting and many local businesses purchase camo promo items to hand out to their customers. It's brisk today, but no snow. Slight wind - the hunters should have an Ok day in the woods today.

The holidays are fast approaching and the Christmas rush is already underway. I would like to remind everyone to plan ahead and not wait til the last minute to order. It isn't that we can't embroider your items quickly, it's because stock becomes very limited at the close of the year. SO, keep that in mind and order early!

Two great specials this month - check them out on our specials page. We will continue fast turnaround until the holidays of 7-10 days. If you need it sooner, just let us know. We are always ready and willing to accommodate!

Take care and enjoy the upcoming Thanksgiving Holiday!

Custom Embroidery Articles

Why Choose Custom Embroidery?

Custom Embroidery is the classiest way to advertise your business. If the logo is done right and created with incredible eye-appeal it WILL make people notice and will reflect on the type of business you are.

Embroidery also lasts a LONG time. Your garment will begin to fray long before your embroidery will show any signs of wear or tear.

Embroidery on the back of a Jacket is probably the most vivid way to advertise your company. It can be noticed from a long way off AND people can read it and take down your information without feeling like they are intruding with asking a bunch of questions.

Embroidery can be done on almost anything, including nylon, fleece, hats and most delicate items. About the only thing we won't embroider is leather, simply because most leather jackets are thick and unable to be hooped properly.

Embroidery above any other form of advertising is by far the best for great exposure. Anyone that has embroidered clothing for their business knows you feel more professional and people take you more seriously.

Embroidery for your Employees is also a great way to invite a TEAM spirit! It unites everyone and makes them feel part of a great team of professionals.

There are times when Imprinting can be useful too, such as on the back of Tees or on lightweight apparel where embroidery would be too heavy. Click the link below and read about imprinting as well. OMD offers both services.

Spring finally arrived!

Spring is definately here in Michigan. Grass is green although we haven't mowed the lawn yet. ;-) Buds are just starting to come out....wild flowers are blooming. Traffic has increased in our area significantly -- which is always a sign that spring is here.

What's new

We heard the "spring peepers" last nite, which means spring is here. Snow is gone and we are finally reaching 60 deg. this weekend. Beautiful day today.

Windshirts have been extremely popular this year, with the M700 Harriton and the CH800 Chestnut hill being our top sellers. Both are very well made but with different price points. For those sticking to a budget, the Harriton is a great deal.

Many new customers have taken advantage of the FREE setup fee this month and we would like to say Welcome to OMD!

Is this really spring?

If you were to stop in our shop today, you may be surprised by our weather. We are in the midst of a "Spring" Snow storm, which is the second one this month. Reports of 62 inches fell about 3 hours from here just last week. We had a pretty mild winter over all, I guess it can't be over yet or we would be spoiled.

Production time fell to about 9 days and now we are back on schedule at the normal 7 day turnaround. Remember to take advantage of our Gildan Polos...a super deal this month. Free set up fees to all new customers too. Give us a try, we won't disappoint you. ;-)

New spring items are becoming available and we will feature a few of those in May for specials. Hard to say if those styles will stay, some are new and will be tested first. We also would like to remind you that we have fleece blankets, totes, aprons and other misc. items available. Just ask and we can direct you to those.

Have a super day everyone...and feel free to email with questions about our site or products.

Behind the Website

Hi there!
My name is Denise and I am in charge of Sales & Design here at OMD. If you call or email, you will most likely get me and I am happy to help you! My husband, Tom is in charge of Embroidery Production and he takes his job very seriously.

We started our Embroidery business in 1991 when computerized embroidery was just starting to become popular. Tom and I are both strong minded business people and prior to that we ran two separate businesses. But after years of running in different directions, we realized if we joined forces we could accomplish so much more and maybe see more of each other. He was dynamic with production & general business knowledge and I love being creative, while enjoying sales and keeping the books. Computerized Embroidery was the perfect fit for us and we never regretted the change. It is a business that uses our gifts and and we create a product we believe in.

It is really important to us that we build long lasting business relationships with our customers. As Internet sales increase and quickly have become 80% of our business, we missed the personal aspect that is lacking. We want to keep your business here at OMD and we do hope this blog will help give our customers that small town feel and loyal friendship.

We offer Monthly specials that target the season and hopefully bring our customers awesome savings. Year around we run our 144 piece promotion and that is FREE shipping and FREE set up fee on 144 pieces or more. You can combine pieces to reach that quantity discount.

If you don't see something on our site...just give us a jingle or email us. ( and we will resource it for you. Many items we have available are not on our site - so please don't hesitate to ask!

Spring begins a very busy time here, but we work very hard to maintain our quick turnarounds. Typically 7-10 days. If you need a rush order done, there is no rush fee. We may need to ship items in overnight or ship them out express as well....but OMD does not charge for speedy turnaround.

Well...more later as news evolves. I will be posting on new products as the year continues. Chestnut Hill continues to be the brand in the lead for a great product and awesome prices! So be sure to visit our website (link to the right under articles) for more details!!
