About Us: 45th Anniversary
Northwest Custom Apparel is flying high out of the pandemic and is ready to start stitching for embroidery brokers throughout the country. We are celebrating our 45th year stitching for thousands of companies around the country. One of our first customers was Blue Ribbon Sportswear 40 years ago (Not Pabst Blue Ribbon beer). Blue Ribbon Sportswear eventually turned into Nike out of Beaverton, Oregon.
We have embroidery capacity
We recently bought all new Tajima embroidery machines, and we have a total embroidery headcount of 72. Our trained, conscientious embroidery operators have numerous years of running multi-head embroidery machines. Ruthie, our production manager, has been with us for 24 years and prides herself in a clean and modern embroidery shop.
