Custom embroidery is a technique of stitching a logo directly on apparel. It is near and dear to our hearts (and it can be near and dear to yours depending on your order!). It’s the OG of our industry. Before screen printing and sublimation was all the rage, embroidery reigned. Remember when you bought your first acid wash jean jacket? It was so rad, but it was missing something… maybe a cool patch on the sleeve, maybe your last name stitched across the back… whatever it was, custom embroidery was there to save the day.
Custom embroidery just keeps getting better and better.
Yes, we can still customize your jean jacket, but now we can do so much more.

Why should I choose custom embroidery over screen printing?
While embroidery can certainly be used for fun projects, at the end of the day what sets custom embroidery apart from screen printing is the professional detail of the end product. If you want a clean design that makes a statement, embroidery could be your new best friend. And did we mention durability?! Your embroidered products are going to LAST. If you wash a screen-printed shirt enough, there’s a good chance the design might fade. That’s not the case with custom embroidery.
Lastly, custom embroidery is more versatile. The variety of products you can embroider far outweighs what screen printing can do. Screen printing is ideal for large orders, large logos and t-shirts. Embroidery should be used if you’re altering outerwear, fuzzy materials or if you want your design to really pop.
What’s the price difference between custom embroidery and screen printing?
Honestly, depending on the size and scope of your order, custom embroidery is likely going to cost more than screen printing. It costs extra because you’re paying for a more detailed, professional look. If you’re wondering which method you should use for your order, we’d recommend giving us a call and walking us through your needs and desires.
