Why Choose Embroidery

Embroidery Design Tips
Choosing the Look
Embroidered logos and designs work great on most knits and cotton blends. However, it’s important to pay attention to the fabric and its weight. For example, denim is more durable and wrinkle-resistant, therefore a great canvas for all kinds of embroidery. Performance fabrics, on the other hand, are designed to be worn for training and are usually more lightweight. To avoid wrinkling, these types of fabrics are best suited for small embroidery designs.
The great thing about custom embroidery is that you can also choose fabrics and patterns, such as tie-dye or denim, that are not suitable for other design techniques!
Choosing the Placement
When it comes to apparel, you can choose between left and centre chest embroidery. Hoodies are highly popular for centre chest and t-shirts for the left chest designs. For a super trendy back embroidery, choose a denim jacket. As for the most noticeable accessory—the hat—front is the most popular placement, while the sides and the back are commonly used for branding purposes.
