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!
