Just as plain as it reads, a high-production embroidery shop outputs a large quantity of embroidered goods. But, this does not necessarily mean producing mass amounts of the same item. There are various types of high-production embroidery business models around the United States.

One business model is the traditional high-production embroidery organization that caters to large quantity orders. This type of shop usually has a minimum order of 72 pieces and specializes in quick turnaround for sizeable orders. A company like this is typically outfitted with several multi-head machines.

A style that has evolved in the high-production market is large quantity personalization, focusing on unique and single-piece high output. It is quite different than the previous model, as this scenario requires numerous single-head machines. Most often, these organizations offer online ordering with back-end automated solutions to keep up with the high demand.

The third type of high output is a bit between the two previous examples, mainly concentrating on e-commerce and appealing to the general public. In this setup, the shop has a mix of equipment including single- and multi-heads strategically placed in workstations across the floor that can accommodate the array of orders. Businesses such as these will generally allow a minimum order of one to thousands of pieces
