Your Embroidered Logo: PMS Shirt Colors?

Need to find custom embroidered polo shirts in a certain PMS color? Your boss asked you to find polo shirts in a certain PMS (Pantone matching system) color. Is that possible?

Yes, but it's usually not practical.  If you want a large quantity of shirts you could have them manufactured overseas but you'll need to meet high minimums and have enough time to wait for your order. Ready-to-wear shirts can be purchased in some PMS colors but many fabrics can fade or bleed depending on how they are worn and laundered so the original shirt color may vary after some usage.

If your company is particular about maintaining PMS colors then your best option is to have your logo embroidered in PMS matching thread colors on a white or black shirt. If polyester thread (a common type of thread) is used then your logo should maintain its colors.
