Hamilton College embroidery specifications for the block H and sports-specific logos when reversing the graphics to place on a blue or black background.

Use white and buff thread (see Madeira colors to the right).

In order to cleanly execute the block H with the drop shadow, the embroidery process requires an outline around the H. This outline should MATCH the color of the fabric — which will effectively render the “outline around the H” invisible.

The desired effect will look like this:
