Embroidery

How it’s done

 

Embroidery is the process of stitching a design, text or logo onto a garment.

The image required needs to be digitised. This is the conversion of the design into stitches using embroidery software which the machine will then embroider onto the clothing.

The colour of the threads are chosen based on the design and if needed can be pantone matched to your choice.

A hoop is placed on the area of the garment which needs to be embroidered (ie. left chest). It is then sandwiched between said hoop and a backing hoop underneath the garment to create a tight area of fabric to embroider onto.

The hooped garment is loaded into the machine where the embroidery will then be completed one by one, being de-hooped, checked and packed for distribution. This is repeated for the total quantity of the order.

Embroidery wears well, looks professional and can be used on most types of garment.

Because embroidery creates a high quality look, it is a great alternative to print work.
