Embroidery is an excellent way of branding bags, Caps & beanies, scarves, towels, picnic blankets, jackets & vests and other apparel and other textile products. It offers higher perceived value and a depth of branding quality which other processes can’t match, and the finished logo or design has a slightly raised effect. Embroidery uses rayon thread which is stitched into the product.
The first step in embroidering promotional products is to scan and load an original logo or design into a computer. This allows each separate component of the design to be programmed into the sewing machines.
Today’s sewing machines are programmable and designed for precision, making their stitches exactly where the operator’s input indicates on the product. Factories often have multiple machines set up to work in tandem. They stitch away in sync, working on the same part of the pattern at the same time. Does this approach do a great job of getting items produced quickly? Absolutely! It’s also kind of fascinating to watch!

Most embroidered designs use multiple colours. To accommodate this, an industrial sewing machine works on one colour in a design at a time, sewing every instance in which a colour appears. Once that’s done, a new colour of thread is loaded onto the machine, and the process is repeated until the entire design has been reproduced in thousands of glorious stitches.
The advantages of Embroidery include:
- Gives your promotional product or staff uniform a higher perceived value.
- Only one setup charge applies per position for up to
12 thread colours.
The disadvantages of Embroidery include:
- Text can not be smaller than 5mm high for it to be legible
- Larger embroidery can be very heavy and is not recommended on light weight materials.
