**How to Calculate Embroidery Cost in Garments?**

In this fashionable era, embroidery is a common term in **garments manufacturing** sector. To make garments more attractive and fashionable, embroidery is must. In my garments merchandising job life I have received rarely without embroidery **garments export order**. Sometimes it’s seen that, a single garment contains more than two or three embroidery design. During **garments costing**, **garments merchandiser** should estimate the embroidery cost also. As its importance in **garments merchandising**, today I will present here the estimation system of embroidery cost for garments export order.

**Calculation of Embroidery Cost in Garments**:

Normally embroidery costing is estimated on depending embroidery stitch unit, which is 12000.

**Before estimating of an embroidery cost, a garments merchandiser must confirm about the following parameters:**

- Number of stitches needed to complete a design,
- Rate per unit design.

Finally, by using the following formula, garments merchandiser can easily estimate the embroidery costs of garments.

**Embroidery cost (per dozen),**

Now, one example is enough to clear all the confusion from the above discussion.

**Example:**

Suppose, for an “American eagle” order (10000pcs Polo shirt) you have to calculate the embroidery costs, where the required data is in the following:

- Stitch quantity- 9000
- Rate per unit design- $0.30

**Solution:**

As we have got the required data from the above order specification, then we can now easily estimate the embroidery costs by applying in the following formula-

**Embroidery costs (per dozen),**

= $2.7 per dozen

So, for 10000pcs or 833.33dozen garments embroidery costs stands at (833.33 × 2.7) = $2250

**Note:**

Try to calculate the below problems by following the above formula:

- Estimate the embroidery costs of an apparel export order (20000 pcs polo shirt) from H&M by maintaining the key information where Stitch quantity- 10000 and Rate per unit design- $0.40.
- Calculate the embroidery costs of a woven pant order (15000 pcs) from “GAP”, where Rate per unit design is $0.50 and stitch quantity is 9000.
