Your Embroidered Logo: Best Print Type?

Need another option in addition to custom embroidered polo shirts for the summer?  Want to order T's with a multi-color design? Wondering which decoration method is best?  Screen printing, direct garment printing, heat transfer?

First, how many shirts do you need? If its a small quantity then direct garment printing or a heat transfer print may be your best option especially if there are multiple colors in your design. If your design has 2-3 colors, screen printing may be an option if you can find a printer who will print a small quantity.

If you need a large quantity and your design has only a few colors then screen printing may be your best option. But, if your design has lots of colors or color gradations then four-color process may be the most cost effective.

What if the shirts are white and made from 100% polyester? Sublimation printing can be considered.  What if you really like the look of embroidery? Embroidery will work if its a left chest sized design but a larger design will have too many stitches to be supported by T-shirt fabric.
