Top Custom Embroidery Tips
Following these simple design tips will help you to create an eye-catching custom embroidery design that will look great, communicate effectively, and save you $$$.
#1: Keep your embroidery design simple:
#2: Make sure your thread colors contrast your custom hat or shirt
For optimal viewing and legibility, choose a garment color combination that contrasts the color of your design.
Avoid using garment colors that are in the same color family as the colors in your image.
*Pro-Design Tip: Consider how many thread colors you want to budget for when you create your embroidered design.
#3: Choose the right shirt fabric (ie, avoid performance fabrics):
Embroidered logos work best on woven fabrics (such as twill) and most knits (such as pique (ex. RL Polo Shirts)). They don't work as well on lightweight cotton fabrics or performance fabrics.
