Founded in 1984 as a family business by Dick and Elise Garcia, on Long Island, N.Y., GCEmb Greenland Custom Embroidery has continued to make quality workmanship and customer satisfaction, our number one priority.
Beginning in 1996, our second eldest daughter, Mary, began working with us, mainly doing our graphics. Having a degree in Graphic Design, she was a natural choice! Over the years she has become more and more involved in the business, and in late 2012 we officially made her a co-owner.
Having one of our five daughters being a part of our business ensures that the same quality workmanship and customer satisfaction will continue long after Elise and I have retired.
Our company name, GCEmb Greenland Custom Embroidery, was derived from the fact that Elise is from Greenland, and we met while I was stationed there with the Air Force, at Sondre Stromfjord, in the early 70’s. We have adopted the polar bear as our mascot and have a few designs to offer, if you happen to like that large animal…
The original idea that no order is too small, continues to hold true today, with one piece still being our embroidery minimum order. We do wholesale work for retail establishments, corporations, schools, clubs, teams, and fraternal organizations.
We have many stock designs in our inventory, which we can customize to develop a logo for a customer, and if required, we have the capability to produce custom logos or designs from your original artwork.
Along with embroidery, we also offer printing on T-shirts, sports shirts, sweatshirts, and bags. In addition, we are a source for team uniforms, and offer personalization in both normal print and tackle twill sewn on numbers and letters.
We have even expanded beyond custom embroidery to offer our own designs to the public via Etsy. The Greenland Heritage Line showcases the beauty and wonder that is Greenland. The Green Mountain Clothing Line offers various clothing options that feature classic & new Vermont designs. Our State Pride Euro Line gives customers a chance to show off their state’s pride through unique designs and products. All of this, and more, can be found online at GCEmb.Etsy.com.
Browse if you wish, find what you like, and allow us to produce it for you. Remember, when it comes to embroidery, we may not be able to do miracles, but we sure do come close! Enjoy your visit.
