EMBROIDERY: A professional look
Embroidery is a process where thread is used to create your logo on an item. It can be one color or several to match your logo or aesthetic. It is the most durable option and is commonly imprinted on hats and polos. To create the best looking, most polished look, embroidery is best used with smaller and more simple logos. Below we will provide 3 tips to optimize your next embroidered product.
1. USE A SIMPLE LOGO
The first tip that we have is to use a simple logo. Because embroidery is made with thread, the artwork will need to have less detail that we would be able to do with dtg printing or screen printing. The lines of the logo are created with thread which is thicker therefore simple designs are best recreated with embroidery. Also, solid colors work much better for embroidery, rather than gradients. It is difficult to simulate a gradient with thread and the results can sometimes look messy, rather than a clean, polished, professional look.
2. LOGO SIZE
Smaller is better with embroidery (but not too small). You can weigh down a garment figuratively and literally with too much embroidery. The only exception to this are patches for clubs, sports teams etc. In addition, because thread makes thicker lines than other printing types, you will need to have all fonts set to at least 0.25” tall for the final artwork. Smaller and thinner fonts will no longer be readable and can look illegible when sewn on the garments. We can always check your logo to verify the size, just upload it and our designer can let you know right away.
3. FABRIC CHOICE
Certain fabrics are better for embroidery than others. More sturdy materials such as cotton, canvas, denim and blended materials work well. More delicate or sheer fabrics are less ideal because the process of embroidery could damage the items. If you are unsure our friendly reps will help advise you.
