With screen printing and digital printing, embroidery is also a popular method in the custom apparel-making world. It is the process of using thread to sew a logo or text onto a product.
Rather than sewing the design by hand, we now use an embroidery machine. The process starts with making a digital file of your image. This file will then tells the embroidery machine where to stitch the thread.
The time needed to finish a design varies depending on how large it is. The larger the design, the more stitches it needs, which means the longer time it needs to complete the entire picture.
Embroidery works best for designs that are simple and has a minimum color count. Therefore, you have to make sure that your design too many details and color on it. It is also better for you to minimize the number of curves in your design. It is to avoid further problems during the embroidery process.
Embroidery is also more suitable for stronger and thicker materials. The material has to be able to hold the tension during the embroidery process.
If the material is not strong enough, you may end with a disproportionate final result. This is why it is more common for people to use embroidery in decorating polo shirts, sweaters, and jackets with custom designs.
In general, embroidery aims to achieve a more professional appearance and a more durable result compared to screen printing or digital printing. However, it comes with its own limitations.
