What is Embroidery: With embroidery, the logo is reproduced by stitching threads directly into fabric. In this digital age, this is fully automatic and is done using advanced software and high-tech machinery. The pricing depends on the number of stitches in your logo.
Why Embroidery: Embroidery is a classic and classy way to customize your workwear, corporate apparel, and other promotional items. The result is a clean look that makes your logo tangible. Unlike paint or ink, embroidery doesn’t fade, so if you’re washing it repeatedly, it is likely to hold up better than a screen-printed piece of clothing.
Embroidery Summary: Embroidery can be applied to most garments, from polos and caps to corporate shirts and suits. In general, embroidery is cheaper for pocket-size logos, particularly for smaller quantities (less than 100 garments) and for logos that have several colours.
What is Screen Printing: With screen printing, your logo is reproduced by squeezing inks through mesh screens directly onto a substrate. What’s a substrate? Basically, anything that can accept and hold the ink. For example, T-shirts, canvas tote bags, pens, yard signs, mugs, and many more. A separate mesh screen is required for each colour in your logo so designs with many colours cost more than simple one colour designs.
Why Screen Printing: Screen printing is generally less expensive than embroidery, especially larger logos as the embroidery can take tens of thousands of stitches to create. And, unlike embroidery, screen printing can be used with lots of materials, such as logo pens, caps, or anything with a solid, flat surface.
Screen Printing Summary: Versatile, durable, cost-efficient while remaining high quality.
