Personalise your Martial Arts black belt with our Tailormade embroidery services. The perfect gift for instructors, training partners or students, our tailormade service offers the following:

Embroidered Belt: One End

Personalise the plain end of your black belt by adding Dan Bars and/or text to one end of your belt. Text can be presented vertically or horizontally in English or Japanese, with several thread colours to choose from. There are also three belt types available – Standard Silk Black Belt (with 11 rows of stitching and 4.5cm wide), Deluxe Silk Black Belt (with 17 rows of stitching and 5cm wide) or Deluxe Cotton Black Belt (with 17 rows of stitching and 5cm wide). The embroidery is backed with a vinyl backing.

Embroidered Belt: Two Ends

Similar to the one ended belt but applies to both ends, personalise both ends of your black belt by adding Dan Bars and/or text. Text can be presented vertically or horizontally in English or Japanese, with several thread colours to choose from. There are also three belt types available – Standard Silk Black Belt (with 11 rows of stitching and 4.5cm wide), Deluxe Silk Black Belt (with 17 rows of stitching and 5cm wide) or Deluxe Cotton Black Belt (with 17 rows of stitching and 5cm wide). The embroidery is backed with a vinyl backing.

Embroidered Belt: Dan Bars Only

Add Dan Bars to the plain end of your black belt with our embroidery services. Showcase your Martial Arts achievements by selecting the Dan Bar options available and with several thread colours to choose from. Again, there are also three belt types available – Standard Silk Black Belt (with 11 rows of stitching and 4.5cm wide), Deluxe Silk Black Belt (with 17 rows of stitching and 5cm wide) or Deluxe Cotton Black Belt (with 17 rows of stitching and 5cm wide). The embroidery is backed with a vinyl backing.

Frequently Asked Questions

What’s the difference between horizontal and vertical text?

Please see the following examples and note that ‘vertical’ font characters will need to be smaller in order to fit within the embroidery area. We normally suggest the ‘horizontal’ orientation if you have a long name or, if you would like the name to be on the label end.

What are the maximum number of characters that I can fit on the belt before the text is too small to read?

There are four main factors that will determine the maximum number of letters that will fit on the belt – the font, the orientation, whether it’s on the plain or label end and if their are any Dan bars. Generally, anything under 16 characters including spaces (horizontal) and 10 characters (vertical) will not be a problem.

If we think it might look better using a different orientation, we will contact you with some suggestions.

Can I send my own belt in to have a Dan Bar added?

Unfortunately not. We know how important these belts are to you. If the belt was to become lost or damaged, we would not be able to replace this special item.

Can I send in my own translations?

Yes of course! We offer an English to Japanese translation service for names and use the characters as we see fit. But we urge anyone who has already had their name embroidered onto a belt, to send us their own translations as spellings may differ. Much like English, there is more than one way to spell ‘Katelyn’ i.e. Caitlin, Caitlyn, Kaitlin, Katelynn, Kaitlynn, Katelin, Caitlynn and Katlyn. In fact, there are over 140 ways to spell Kaitlynn.

What source do you use to translate names into Japanese?

We have a dedicated translator who lives in Japan! With names being important, we do not like to rely on website translations as they are not always guaranteed to be correct. 

Can I have embroidery all the way around the belt?

Unfortunately not. Our brackets that hold the belts in place whilst being embroidered allow us to embroider designs up to 21cm in length on the plain end.

Can the backing on the belt be removed?

All of our embroidered black belts come with a standard vinyl backing. Once the backing is added, it cannot be removed.
