Iron on would be quickest, you can buy kits to DIY.

Sorry for your loss, it’s a sweet idea.

At out mall in the center, there is a both that does embroidery on things like handbags, towels, sheets, etc they could probably do it if there is a similar one in your mall.  The other place to check for embroidery is uniform stores- places that would sell chef coats, doctors lab coats, janitors shirts etc.  Its super common for people to have these items embroidered with their name, so many of them have a machine on site that does the embroidery and could do it for you.  The last resort I would try would be a sewing/quilting shop- especially if they sell embroidery sewing machines.  I know the shop near me has a few models set up for display, and they’d probably do a small piece like that for me under the circumstances if I asked.

I think you’d need to get individual letters. You could also do an acrylic paint hankie. I’m not sure how it works, but my mum has a pillow she painted using a kit and you’d never think she made it.

If you have Big W in the states check there, I saw one the other day :)

If you have the time to wait for shipping try Etsy.com and see if the seller will put a rush order on it for you.

@icetea:  If your wedding date listed is correct, I think you would be fine ordering from Etsy, most of the vendors will post a production time, usually no more than a week then another couple days for shipping. You could always keep the blank one to have on hand just incase the embroidered one doesn’t arrive on time.

@icetea:  

my condolences, maybe wrap a handwritten note to him in the blank handkerchief.
