Embroidery typically works best with simple designs when going on small locations such as a left chest on a polo or the front of a hat. It’s also best for relatively low color count designs, and can get quite costly when doing very large designs. We also recommend when doing a larger design to do it on a heavier garment like a crewneck sweatshirt or hoodie, as embroidery can have quite a heavy feel to it, and doing a wide design on a tee will be very uncomfortable to wear. You can also combine embroidery and printing to get some unique effects, however this can also get quite costly as it is a custom process. Generally speaking in the clothing industry embroidery is best kept simple and effective, a sweet logo or custom design on the front of a crewneck for a clothing brand, or your company’s logo on some nice polos for a casual but professional look.
Embroidered clothing is extremely durable and will stand the test of time. When applied to quality garments, you may have a lifetime product. Especially when it comes to clothing lines or workwear, embroidery is a great way to set yourself apart from the competition, and offer a high-quality lifetime product, certainly a great choice if your products are custom made.
