Embroidery for Term 4 2024

To ensure the best opportunity for blazers to be back in time for Term 4 2024 commencement, we kindly ask that all blazers be dry cleaned and submitted by Tuesday 24th of  September 2024. Please aim to have dry cleaned blazer to us before this date where possible to ensure quick turnaround time.

All Blazers, and worn garments requiring alterations (including embroidery),must be clearly labelled with students name and have a dry-cleaning tag attached and be in the original dry-cleaning bag.  This is an essential measure to protect the wellbeing of our staff and contractors for now and the foreseeable future. Noncompliance with dry-cleaning and blazers submitted  after the cut off  time may result in  delays. We thank you for your co-operation.

Embroidery for Blazers

My school has given my child an award to be put on his/her blazer. What do I need to do?

Simply bring your child’s blazer into your usual Bob Stewart store. Please ensure

  • That the blazer has been dry cleaned, keeping the dry cleaning tag and bag attached (for occupational health and safety reasons
  • That the blazer is clearly named

If your school has sent you paperwork regarding the award please bring it with you.

What is involved in having the embroidery done?

When you bring your blazer in, we will create an order for you so we can trace your job through each stage of the process. Awards are embroidered onto the pocket with computerised technology with designs pre-approved by the school.

How long does it take?

Please allow 15 business days to complete the embroidery process, however peak periods may take longer. We are unable to guarantee shorter completion times.

Please note blazers are to be collected from the same store they are submitted. For all enquires please phone your usual store, or email the following address:


What does it cost?

Embroidery of individual insignias are prices between $16.00 – $18.00 with the cost of the sewing the pocket back on the blazer at $37.

Some school awards require a new pocket to be used. These special award pockets cost from $58 to $84 each (excluding the cost of the sewing on the pocket) Re-embroidery of insignias onto the new pocket will be charged at costs stated above.

The policy of some schools is that a higher-level award for the same activity replaces a lower-level award on the pocket. In this instance the lower-level award must be removed by hand at the cost of $15 before the higher level award can be embroidered.

I am a good sewer. Can I sew the pocket on myself? (Some friends and relatives are great sewers too!)

We are happy for you to sew the pocket on yourself.

Is the pocket sewn back onto the blazer exactly as it was?

For the pocket to be sewn onto the blazer exactly as it was it has to be hand sewn. Due to the cost and time constraints, we are unable to offer hand sewing of pockets. If you would prefer to have your pocket hand sewn, please let us know when you bring your blazer in. We will organise the embroidery. You can then take the blazer to the tailor of your choice for hand sewing.
