Embroidered Logo: Artwork to Embroidered Design

You web guy designed a great logo for screen printed shirts. Its a four color process design with lots of subtle color gradations. It looks sharp as a full front, T-shirt design but will it work for embroidered polo shirts?

Most likely your artwork will need modifications. Can your embroiderer make these types of changes? Often yes but they may need to ask questions about how your design should be simplified for embroidery. Generally speaking, color gradations and small details must be eliminated. Instead, gradated areas are translated into one area of thread color. If an area must be simplified your embroiderer needs to know what color it should be. If you are unsure how these changes will affect the look of your embroidery then its best to adapt your artwork before starting the embroidery set-up. This way adjustments can be made easily so you can create the look you want for your custom embroidered polo shirts.
