Your Embroidered Logo: Border Color?

You want to order black custom embroidered polo shirts but you're wondering if your logo will show up well because your design has a black outline. Can the outline be changed to another thread color?

The outline color can be changed but it probably won't look right. Adding a black border to a logo adds emphasis to the design.  Adding a border in a lighter color will most likely change the appearance of the design rather than just highlighting existing elements.

If the colors in your design contrast well against the black border and your design is fairly bold then your logo will look fine when embroidered on black shirts. You'll still see the black outline but it won't be very noticeable.  But, if you want the outline in your logo to help make your design "pop" then choose a lighter shirt color that contrasts with the colors in your embroidered logo.

Your Embroidered Logo: Add Variety to Your Logo Wear

What makes a good custom embroidered hat design? Keep it simple and bold.  Focus on one element in your logo - possibly an image - enlarge it and center it on one of the front panels.

What makes an effective logo on a heathered shirt fabric? Use a bold, simplified design in a contrasting thread color. Eliminate small detail because it will be especially hard to read against a multi-colored background.

What's a good way to make a one-color logo more interesting? Pick a custom embroidered performance polo shirt that's available in multiple bright colors and have your logo embroidered in contrasting colors.
