Printing or embroidery, which is best?
If you're struggling to decide whether to opt for a print logo or embroidered logo on your personalised workwear then we've created this quick guide for you to view in order to help you achieve a better understanding of what each method entails.
Printed clothing is often the preferred choice for advertising or promotional uses. This is because it provides a low cost per garment and can handle complicated artwork better than embroidery can. It provides sharp, fine detail and works well with larger designs and as it can handle bright colours better. Printing tends to stand a lot more than embroidery, which is why it's is used so often in advertising. Printing is well suited for T Shirt graphics, and provides a clean and sharp finish when carried out correctly. Some people prefer printing to embroidery on lighter weight garments such as T Shirts due to the weight of embroidery which can end up puckering the fabric. Printed garments are often bought in bulk and provide great value for money. Hand drawn or complicated designs are better suited to printing rather than embroidery.
Embroidery is best for creating logos on a thicker embroidered garments, such as a heavier weight polo shirts or jumpers. Embroidery patterns on garments are long lasting and durable, we only use Madeira threads as they provide sharp colour and fantastic durability. Embroidery may cost more than traditional printing, however the longevity makes it cost effective. With larger designs, we would recommend printing over embroidery as often the weight of all the stitches in a large design can be slightly uncomfortable to wear if you have sensitive skin and the high stitch count can often pucker the fabric. Not all designs are suitable for embroidery and therefore you should take this into consideration. When it comes to embroidery, simple is best, shading and certain half tone effects where one colour blends into another is only available in digital prints. Trying to add too much colour and detail into an embroidery design can often provide a poor finish which doesn't represent your design in the way you'd like. One of the benefits with embroidery is that it can be washed at higher temperatures and tumble dried whereas with printed garments we recommend washing at lower temperatures and to not tumble dry.
Typical uses of T Shirt printing
T Shirt printing is ideal for promotional events, exhibitions, charity events or occasions such as stag / hen parties. They are a great way to help people identify your cause or organisation. Personalised T Shirt printing is low cost so it is often bought in bulk. T-shirt printing is popular with businesses, charities and consumers alike. It is also commonly used for holidays and for team wear. T-shirt print tends to be larger, brighter and more ‘in your face’. The objective of the T Shirt is to get peoples heads turning and focused on the cause or organisation listed on the T Shirt. Printing allows for more complicated designs when compared to embroidery.
Typical uses of Embroidery
Embroidery requires a high quality and thicker garment, such as a hoodie, polo or sweatshirt. This is because thinner garments tend to pucker and pull the fabric due to the weight of the stitches in the finished design. Embroidery works best for logos or smaller designs. Many businesses choose embroidery in their uniforms as embroidery provides durability and tends to out live the garment. Embroidery looks professional and gives the garment a more solid feel. Embroidery is long lasting and will not fade in the wash. For this reason, some argue that embroidery is a lot more cost effective than printing. Embroidery should be used on uniforms and garments that are designed to be long lasting. Embroidered polos, hoodies and work trousers are our best selling garments, we supply thousands each year to companies looking for new workwear and staff uniforms.
