  1. Beginners Guide to Embroidery

    Whether designing custom clothes for fashion, gifts, or workwear, embroidered clothing stands out as one of the most attractive options. 

    But what exactly is the embroidery process and what results can you expect from it? Here’s all you need to know.

    What does embroidered mean?

    Embroidery is defined by the dictionary as “the activity of decorating cloth or clothing with patterns or pictures sewn directly onto the material, or a pattern or picture created in this way:”

    Therefore, embroidered clothing is any item that has had a design sewn onto it. This is a contrast to other design mentors like screen printing, digital printing, vinyl printing, and transfers. And unlike those alternatives, embroidered items have an unmistakable unique appeal

    Embroidery is a process that has been used for thousands of years and remains very popular to this day with both hobbyists and professional fashion designers alike.

    What fashion items can be embroidered? 

    Embroidery can be used on virtually any item of clothing or fabric accessory. However, the most popular items are embroidered polo shirts, caps, and bags. Embroidery offers many attractive features, the most telling are;

    • They are great for small runs as you avoid some the setup costs associated with the printing methods mentioned above.
    • Each item can be easily customized, which is ideal when individual items require a personalized touch.
    • Embroidered fabrics instantly look stylish and luxurious, especially when the stitching has been completed to professional standards.

    Embroidered designs are particularly good for adding logos and emblems. Whether it’s a work uniform or sports fashion item, the designs will look classy while quality stitching can withstand washes to ensure long-term success whereas printed designs can often peel over time – particularly if you use an inferior service.

    Image meets function

    As already touched upon, embroidered clothing finds the sweet spot of combining aesthetic appeals with functional elements. Modern machines can complete the stitching processes in an automated way. Therefore, the procedure will follow these steps;

    • The logo design will be digitized and prepared for the sewing machines.
    • Clothing is positioned so that the design is added in the right place.
    • Stitching is completed to bring the design to life – the depth, angle, and type of stitching all impact the look.
    • Clothing will be checked for faults like frayed stitches – although this is unlikely.

    While handmade embroidery is an option, machines are capable of completing more intricate designs like text. Moreover, designs can be repeated time and time again with perfect accuracy, which is great when a uniform look is needed for workwear, school uniforms, or other designs.

    Generally speaking, embroidered logos are relatively small (no more than 4”) for two main reasons: aesthetic and costs. The more stitches you use, the more it will cost due to the increased use of time and materials. Meanwhile, embroidery across the entire front of a t-shirt, for example, just wouldn’t look right.

    How to get your clothing embroidered?

    Thousands of people enjoy cross-stitching and embroidery as a pastime, creating fun designs for the home. When it comes to fashion or workwear, however, a professional team that uses advanced embroidery machines and logo digitising processes will be key.

  2. Which is better: Embroidery vs Printing

    When it comes to the big question of embroidery vs printing, technically, you can do either on any type of garment. However, both processes have certain characteristics that lend themselves to particular applications through cost and suitability, cost or even both.

    If you are looking for some personalised clothing for your organisation, there are a few things you’ll need to ascertain before going ahead. The most obvious is what type of garments you’re wanting – such as robust workwear, t-shirts or polo shirts for one-off events. This will normally also determine the required lifespan of the garment and the longevity of the actual image. Where will the logo, message or other imagery be placed? How large should it be? How many will you need, and in what sizes?

    What’s the difference?

    Embroidery involves reproducing an image by stitching threads directly into the actual fabric using automated machinery. This enables multiple garments to be personalised in up to 15 colours in one job.

    For printing, the traditional screen method is still very popular and widely used, but gradually being replaced by a DTG (Direct-to-Garment) process by an increasing number of suppliers, including ourselves. As the name suggests, this prints the image directly on to the garment from a computer, enabling a lot more flexibility and creativity than the screen-printing process.

    Which works better?

    Embroidery simply looks more prestigious on a polo shirt or branded business which will be worn in front of their customers. It will also produce a longer-lasting image on items such as work trousers, overalls and lab coats which can encounter harsh conditions including very frequent washing. Embroidery is also recommended for caps.

    For lightweight gardens such as t-shirts, printing is the best choice as it’s unobtrusive and won’t affect the feel or wearability of the garment, or ‘pucker’ the material. T-shirts often feature a larger image too, as mentioned previously.

    What costs are involved?

    The key setting up process for embroidery involves effectively digitising your logo or design to create a file to instruct the machines. This involves a set-up cost that increases with finished image size. The actual embroidery is cheaper for smaller images (such as pocket-sized logos), particularly for smaller quantities (less than 100 or so). Previously, the embroidery was also considered more economical for images with several colours, but DTG printing has changed all that. So cost-wise, for a business shirt, polo or lab coat with your logo on the breast – embroidery is ideal. Embroidering a large logo across the entire back of the garment can become very costly. Printing should be considered for this kind of application.
