Artwork for Screen Printing & Embroidery – The Same?

Artwork for screen printing and embroidery is the same, right? WRONG! Generally speaking, you can screen print finer detail than you can embroider. That small text with the black outline won’t work for embroidery. You’ll have a cleaner design if you eliminate the outline and enlarge the lettering. Can’t enlarge the text? Then maybe you should eliminate it. What about that great font you found with the narrow column widths and serifs. It might look sharp when printed but fine detail won’t show up well when embroidered on pique Custom Embroidered Polo Shirts where there is a tendency for the stitches to sink into the fabric.
