Embroidered Uniforms: Questions Answered

Will pre-shrunk cotton shrink?

Although a shirt is constructed from a preshrunk cotton it is still is susceptible to shrinkage. Overtime, depending on how the shirt is washed (hot water used, long time in a hot dryer) it may still shrink slightly.

Color Gradients in Embroidery?

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.
