Embroidered Uniforms: Questions Answered

Color gradients, gradual color changes from one color to another, can often be realized in embroidery if the design is large enough. Left chest embroidered logos are usually too small to effectively implement color gradations so these areas must be simplified to one color. Although color gradients may be possible in a large designs, using a single thread color is often a less costly option.
