How to Identify Poor Quality Embroidery

Not all embroidery is equal!  Here’s a few tips to ensure that you receive high quality embroidery services.

  • Embroidery which doesn’t have enough stitch density will allow the fabric of the shirt to show through. Also the embroidery will not sit up and look full and vibrant.  Ask to see an example.
  • Low quality embroidery threads will lose their colour and the dye from the thread can run into the shirt fabric.  Ensure that only the finest threads are used.
  • The process of Embroidery using a needle and thread means it is impossible to get the same level of detail as something that is printed. It’s better to leave off very fine or shaded elements of a design and any very small text as they won’t stitch out nicely and detract from the final impact of the logo. A good graphic designer will provide you with an Embroidery version of your logo.  We can also help.
  • To ensure the best result, get your logo professionally digitized. Beware of cheap digitizing setup costs as you very much get what you pay for. A logo which is digitized correctly will sew out beautifully time after time.
