Your Embroidered Logo: A One Color Design?

Thinking of changing the two color logo on your custom embroidered pocket polo shirts to a one color design? Many two and three color logos can easily be converted to a single color but not all designs will work. If different design elements overlap then your design will most likely be less readable. But, if the color contrast between the background and design colors is greater than in the multi-color version, then a single color version may work. Still unsure about what colors to use in your design? Request to see proofs before making your final decision.

Your Embroidered Logo: Best Shirt Color?

How do you pick the best shirt color for your custom embroidered pocket polo shirts? Should you pick...
  1. A practical color -  something that isn't as likely to show any dirt
  2. A neutral shade like white, black or tan
  3. The primary color in your logo
  4. A color that contrasts well with the colors in your logo
If you want your logo to be easily seen choose a contrasting shirt color. If you're unsure what color will work best pick a few color options and have your embroiderer send you a digital proof for each different background so you can see what looks best. Having all your staff members wear the same color shirt will give everyone a uniform look but you may want use a few different shirt colors and allow individuals to choose what color(s) they prefer.

What about using a shirt color that's the same as a color in your logo? That look can give your shirts a really unique, custom look. But, the color that appears in both your logo and on the shirt can't touch each other or else that part of your logo won't be readable.

What if you want a subtle look? Subtle can be very classy. Choose a tone-on-tone thread color for a single-color logo so the color of your logo is slightly darker than the shirt color or consider downsizing your logo to a smaller, more simple image.
