Custom embroidered corporate apparel to show off your logo is a company culture staple. Naturally, your sales and partnership teams will want to get their hands on your embroidered wearables to give to their clients and prospect. It takes a lot of magic to create beautiful embroidered apparel, but the results speak for themselves. Even simple embroidered hats, jackets or shirts look more professional once emblazoned with your logo or your event’s details.
We will discuss the ins and outs of embroidery, what types of products can be embroidered, as well as the alternative customization methods when embroidery isn’t an option for you.
How Does Custom Embroidery Work?
Company logo embroidery has been a classic decoration method for businesses everywhere. Companies continue to use this method for it’s great look and high quality finish. Embroidery really doesn’t cost much extra than screen printing, but will last much longer and it makes a branding statement. The stitched logo looks much better design-wise than a decoration method with no texture. For logo embroidery on shirts, most designs will be placed on the left chest, cuff, or sleeve. Logos on hats will be embroidered on the front.
The embroidery process will differ significantly depending on the size of your project, your logo, and the type of machine that’s being used to create the final piece. This only happens because different details need to be added or taken away, and the stitch count will differ for every design as well.
What Can Be Embroidered?
Almost all fabrics can be embroidered. Any type of apparel or accessory that can be pierced with a needle and thread can be embroidered. From robes to hats and everything in between, embroidery has been used to add a little extra texture to regular items. There are numerous products mentioned below that can include this custom decoration method.

What Are Alternative Customization Methods?
There are a large variety of ways you can have your logo customized without using embroidery. This may be for personal preference or because embroidery doesn’t work with the product you’re trying to sell. The decoration designs are as follows:
- Screen Printing
- Heat Transfer
- Laser Engraving
- Vinyl Transfer
- Pad Printing
- Digital Printing
Most companies try to include as many types of decorative methods as possible in order to please the client. These are just a few of the most popular options available today, but there are also many logo for embroidery and printing options not mentioned that can still be completed if asked.
Embroidery has become such a huge part of the custom design industry. If given the option, most businesses would rather have embroidered merchandise they’re giving away over simple screen-printed designs. Logo embroidery lasts longer, looks more professional and is completely worth the price for the quality you’re receiving.
Embroidery companies have been doing everything they can to keep up with the high-demand for embroidered products. It’s a great way to show that you care about a certain group of people in your life. Giving out branded gifts can sometimes be seen as cheesy, but your employees will be more inclined to use the products if they know they’re great quality. So next time you plan on ordering any custom gifts, see if embroidery is an option.
