Knits, Sleeves??

Knits: Yes. Since embroidered stitches tend to “sink in” to loosely woven knits, you may need a background fill (block of embroidery in the same color as the garment). This fill acts as a foundation for your logo giving it a flat surface to lie on so your embroidery won’t sink into the weave of the knit. This technique is commonly used for custom embroidered knit caps.

Sleeves: Yes. Small embroidery designs place near the cuff of a short-sleeve polo shirt are easily embroidered. Long (4” plus) text placed long ways on a long-sleeve shirt is more difficult to set-up and embroider so expect to pay more for this type of placement.
