Your Embroidered Logo: Fleece Fix!

Does your embroidered logo look “weak” when embroidered on polar fleece? Is it hard to read?  Are you unhappy with its appearance?

While your embroidered design may look perfect when embroidered on tightly woven materials where the stitches lie on the fabric's surface it may look lost when embroidered on polar fleece where there is a tendency for the stitches to sink into the fabric. There are a few techniques you can try to improve the look of your embroidered logo on polar fleece:

1. Use solvy

2. Add a base fill in the same color as the garment

3. Slightly enlarge the design

4. Increase the width of the elements in your design

Your Embroidered Logo: Have Me Embroidered On...

Hey, I’m your business logo! Why don’t you have me embroidered on your work shirts? I’m on your web and social sites, in your email signature and on your letterhead. All that exposure is great but if you have me embroidered on your custom embroidered denim shirts then potential customers will see me wherever you go.  Just contact an embroiderer, send them your artwork, let them know what shirts you want, approve your embroidery set-up and you’ll have shirts that will help advertise your business!

Your Embroidered Logo: Subtle Works!

I’m a nice, non-wrinkle button down shirt. My person, Mark, wears me to his office a lot. Mark likes how I fit and look but I feel there is something missing. I think a small embroidered logo on my left chest would look great and help advertise Mark’s business. Mark thinks adding a logo may be too much but I’m hoping he’ll change his mind...

He did it! Mark made the move toward advertising his business. He had a small tone-on-tone logo embroidered on me. I look great! My logo gives me a totally polished appearance. I love my new embroidered logo. Now I’m a custom embroidered button down shirt!

Your Embroidered Logo: A One Color Design?

Thinking of changing the two color logo on your custom embroidered pocket polo shirts to a one color design? Many two and three color logos can easily be converted to a single color but not all designs will work. If different design elements overlap then your design will most likely be less readable. But, if the color contrast between the background and design colors is greater than in the multi-color version, then a single color version may work. Still unsure about what colors to use in your design? Request to see proofs before making your final decision.

Your Embroidered Logo: Best Shirt Color?

How do you pick the best shirt color for your custom embroidered pocket polo shirts? Should you pick...
  1. A practical color -  something that isn't as likely to show any dirt
  2. A neutral shade like white, black or tan
  3. The primary color in your logo
  4. A color that contrasts well with the colors in your logo
If you want your logo to be easily seen choose a contrasting shirt color. If you're unsure what color will work best pick a few color options and have your embroiderer send you a digital proof for each different background so you can see what looks best. Having all your staff members wear the same color shirt will give everyone a uniform look but you may want use a few different shirt colors and allow individuals to choose what color(s) they prefer.

What about using a shirt color that's the same as a color in your logo? That look can give your shirts a really unique, custom look. But, the color that appears in both your logo and on the shirt can't touch each other or else that part of your logo won't be readable.

What if you want a subtle look? Subtle can be very classy. Choose a tone-on-tone thread color for a single-color logo so the color of your logo is slightly darker than the shirt color or consider downsizing your logo to a smaller, more simple image.
