Henry David Thoreau distrusted any enterprise that required new clothes, which is why he abandoned his career as a French maid. Embrace bold new outfits with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of custom embroidery at Quick Stitch.
Drawing inspiration from a head tailor who has done alterations for Miss Kansas before the Miss America pageant, the skilled needle wielders at Quick Stitch personalize garments with custom-embroidered monograms and company logos. Single letters ($5–$7, not including digitizing) grace polo shirts or pillowcases, and full names ($8–$12) prevent roommates from getting their clown costumes mixed up. Quick Stitch also uses thread to paint company logos onto cloth after employing high-tech robotic eyes to digitize the graphic (fee estimates provided based on complexity of logo). Personalized attire is particularly fitting for the holiday season, as gift givers can bypass the need for tags by having “From Mommy” embroidered onto designer bags and toasters.
