Why Choose Embroidery?

Custom Shirt Embroidery

You’ve seen embroidery at almost every place of business.  Next time you walk into a store and a representative approaches you to ask “Do you need help with anything”, take a look at their polo shirt and you will see the company logo or name embroidered on the chest.  Either left or right. When getting shirts made for your business or events, you are presented with many options. One that seems to stand out is the embroidered option. Is this a good option for you? It really depends what your shirts are going to be used for and what type of shirts you are looking to get customized.


What is Embroidery?

Custom Shirt EmbroideryEmbroidery is the process of stitching your design to apparel choice.  Stitching with a thread and needle using a special sewing type machine called an, you guessed it, embroidery machine.  The type of design you choose to get embroidered is also limited. It is not recommended to use designs with a lot of details as it will not show very well in the embroidered final product.  Embroidery can be done in different colors as well. If you are curious about what your design will look like, don’t be afraid to ask the embroidery company for a sample. Because of the process and materials, embroidery is more expensive than silk screening or screen printing.


Is Embroidery A Good Option?

So why would one choose embroidery? Embroidered apparel looks highly professional and clean.  The stitching really stands out. If you are getting a garment embroidered it is most likely that you are not going to be using it to be working on a job site getting down and dirty.  A majority of businesses or agencies that choose to have their shirts embroidered have it done on polo shirts as these shirts will be used in office or at a job function/event. It is recommended that your design consist of basic designs, numbers and letters.  Yes, embroidery does cost more, but the end product is worth it.
