Your Embroidered Logo: Button Downs Or T's?

You're faced with a decision.Your new logo looks great in print but your embroiderer says it must be simplified for embroidery. You love all the details and shadowing so you wonder if there's another option.  Screen printing is suggested but you'll need to switch from button down to tee shirts.

Button downs or T's - how do you decide?  You want the professional look of button down shirts and don't want to downgrade their appearance by printing them. You also love all the details in your new logo so you don't want to simplify it for embroidery but will tee shirts work?

What should you do? If you need a more professional look choose embroidered button down shirts.  Customers will notice your logo and it will convey a higher value than a printed logo.  Although you may be disappointed that your embroidered logo is missing minor details it still contains the essential information that advertises your business and most likely your customers won't notice the difference!

Your Embroidered Logo: Style Hunt?

Looking for a ladies three quarter sleeve that can be worn untucked? Ask your embroiderer! Many styles include spec information that shows how the item is cut. Your embroiderer can suggest styles that may work for you.

Striving for stripes? Striped clothing is hot and available for 2014.  Just be careful to have your logo embroidered in a thread color that's readable against both stripe colors and large enough to be easily seen unless you want a more subtle look.

Need the cheapest possible white polo? A purple tote bag? A hot pink trucker cap? Your embroiderer will know where to look!

Your Embroidered Designs: Hook the Right Design!


Need a replacement for your Dad’s well-worn fishing jacket?  Want to duplicate the left chest embroidered design but you don’t have the design and you can’t contact the original embroiderer? What should you do?

The image may be a stock embroidery design. These designs are sold by design companies and are cheaper to purchase than having a design digitized (converted into stitch format) from artwork. How do you know if you have a stock embroidery design?  Show it to an experienced embroiderer. They’ll have a good idea if that’s the case and if you’re lucky they might know which company sells your particular design. But, since there are thousands of designs that probably won’t be the situation.  What next?  Have your embroiderer suggest sites where you might find your design. Although you may not see your exact design you may locate one that is very close and it will look great on that new fishing jacket!
