Can My Logo Be Embroidered On a Knit Cap?

Yes, your logo can be embroidered on a knit cap. But, depending on the size of the elements in the design and the amount of detail, it may be better to embroider a "foundation" fill for your logo to lie on so your design won't sink into the knit of the cap.

Select The Right Polo For Your Group!

While its hard to satisfy everyone in a large group, look for a style that's available in lots of sizes and comes in a ladies companion style. The women will be more likely to wear an embroidered polo shirt that fits better and is more flattering. Many styles are available with a different neckline for women such as as the K500 V neck button polo. Consider offering more then one color such as a "warm" and a "cool" shade so employees can choose what color looks best on them. Also, let staff members choose what size they need and have samples available to try on. Employees will be more likely to wear a custom embroidered polo shirt that fits well.

Looking for A Great Polo Shirt?

Are you looking for a great polo shirt? One that fits well, feels wonderful, is available in the colors and sizes you want?

You’ve ordered custom embroidered polo shirts before but often the shirts weren’t worn. Before placing your next order, try getting some feedback from employees about why the shirts weren’t worn. Did they fit correctly? Did they look good throughout the day? Did the polo shirts wash well? Did the shirt color work for most people?

Embroidery vs. Screen Printing Cost

If your logo design has a few colors, screen printing may be more expensive because you’ll have a screen charge for every color. Although most likely you’ll pay an embroidery set-up charge, the number of colors in your embroidered logo won’t affect your cost unless you exceed 12 to15 colors. If your logo isn’t too complicated then your embroidery set-up charge could be less then your screen charges. Also, almost any type of artwork format can be used for an embroidery set-up. With screen printing, vector art (line art) is often necessary so you may be charged an artwork fee to convert your artwork into vector format. Still not sure whether to choose screen printing or embroidery? Ask your decorator!
