HOW TO CHANGE A LOGO TO BE EMBROIDERY FRIENDLY

Bold Is Better

Bold letters and design elements are more visible and look better embroidered.

Strong Colour Contrast Is Ideal. Strong colour contrast is better than light on light or dark on dark colours. If visibility is an issue with your intricate design please consider this. There is one exception – black on white, or white on black sometimes results in poor quality embroidery coverage.

BRANDING METHODS

EMBROIDERY

is our most popular method of branding garments. Pantone colours can be matched and even the most complicated designs can be achieved and brought to life using various stitching techniques and threads.

HEAT TRANSFERS

are an excellent method to brand low volume orders for garments requiring a print or large logo or for items that are not suitable for embroidery.

SCREEN PRINTING

is excellent for larger orders. We can print from one up 10 000 full colour designs in various positions, including all-over garment printing.

ACCESSORISE

your garment using personalised finishing touches. Ask us about sew-in woven labels, zip pulls, swing tickets, bags etc.

OPEN BLOCK LETTERING IS MORE LEGIBLE

Narrow and condensed type styles do not embroider well. Tall and skinny font styles are should be avoided as well. Squat and bold (not extra bold) are preferable. Other type styles that embroider well are, simple script, bold font styles with serif’s, free hand styles, and other styles that conform to this concept. If you want to use a stylized font then make sure you have designed the lettering large enough so the small details (like the inside of a lower case “a”) do not risk “closing up”.

BLANK SPACES ARE BORING!

Effective use of space is important. Enlarging graphic elements, extending or enlarging text, and introducing other graphic elements are ways to better use blank space.

BEWARE THIN BLACK LINES!

Does your design have a lot of black lines separating elements? Are they necessary to the graphic? If they can be reduced or removed the finished product will look better. Capture lines (thin black lines defining graphic details) are difficult to register when embroidering. Capture lines have to be embroidered in Stepstitch – a series of short straight stitches going from one needle entry point to another resulting in a line that is not the straightest or the smoothest looking. A good idea is to think about Paint-by-Number paintings. The original design has no color, it only has shapes contained by Capture Lines. When it’s painted the Capture Lines are gone and all that’s left are the colors. Patch Design works well if you keep this in mind. When Capture Lines are essential to the graphic, as is usual in cartoon graphics, consideration should be given to thickening the capture lines to the point where they can be accomplished in Stiehl Stitch (an embroidered border style stitch). A Stiehl Stitch is a reciprocal stitch (back and forth) that binds the edge of a graphic element in a smooth and continuous manner. The thickness of a Stiehl Stitch can be varied for added emphasis and effect.

EMBROIDERY FRIENDLY ELEMENT POSITIONING

The placement of your design elements and fonts matters a lot! In the embroidery process the needle must travel from one element to another. Having elements touching or very close allows them to be connected. Having elements that are spaced apart does not allow them to be connected. For example if your design has a star field: if the stars are spaced too far apart the embroidery machine must stop, trim, move slowly to the next position, and resume stitching. This process increases the chance of embroidery defects.
