How to Get Started

Do you need some new employee shirts for your company?  Or do you have an idea for a design for a family reunion,  your store, or an event but don’t know how to get something made?   No Problem!  At River Bend Threads we can help you with your project no matter how big or small.  

 If you have a design that you want embroidered feel free to email us at, or drop off your design on a cd or thumb drive at our store location.   Email not your thing?  Then give us a call and we can get your project started! 406-222-8766

If you do not have a design but have an idea, look through our immense catalog of designs at  Dakota Collectibles – Embroidery Designs .  Just be sure to note the graphic title and the 6 digit code of the image.


*Please note – If you are a customer providing a new design that we have not run in our embroidery shop before, all of our new design needs to be digitized, (If you are unfamiliar with what digitizing means, Read below and learn what the process is all about).  Digitizing  is a one time fee per new logo for us to create.  After it is digitized, we will store your design on our server for future use.  Any job run with that same design in the future, will not be charged a digitizing fee.


Digitizing your Design and what that means:


Before any design can be embroidered by us, it must be digitized.  Embroidery digitizing is the process of converting existing artwork like a logo, text, graphic, or a team emblem into a stitch file that our embroidery machine can process, and then sew on a garment.  This is a complex process that is both art and science.  If you are a customer providing a new design that we haven’t worked with before, your design will need to be digitized.  Due to the complexity and lengthy process of digitization,  there is a one time fee for digitizing your design.  Once your graphic is digitized, we will always have your design on file, so you won’t need to digitize it ever again!
