    about to pull the trigger on a set of seat covers and I'm not sure about adding custom "TRD" emblems. Those that have them, what's kind of process is used? Is it silk screened, cut vinyl (like football numbers) or printed dye that's heat transferred? I'm concerned about them 1) looking cheap, and 2) wearing off in a year. If anyone can capture the texture of theirs in a picture, that would be awesome. Thanks!

    no, the company told me they're not embroidered, but that's about all the info they gave me.

    This is a picture of my first set .... had them for three years and noticed no problem with graphics ..... they were "raised" .... don't quite remember if they were stitched.

    really? When did you get yours? Maybe the factory stopped embroidering since then. Got any pics?

    I never have that issue. Given how hot it gets out here, I kinda thought I would.

    same here, thought they would get hot/sweaty but they are great.

    I got my wet okoles close to four years ago (fall 06) and they are not embroidered, they appear to be an iron on type decal. I was worried that they would peel off but they look like new and get beat up on pretty good. I'd say they are worth the money if you like them.
