Dress up your line with exquisitely embroidered details! With unique and creative stitches for hemlines, necklines, and seams, you can be sure your apparel will stand out of the crowd. We can either embroider directly onto your garment or create a separate embroidered piece to later attach to your garment. In order to create a high quality embroidered product, there are a few basic, but significant components that you have to watch out for when creating embroidery. These include:

 The thread:

The two main types of embroidery threads are polyester and rayon. Through rayon is used to stitch the most stunning designs, its thin quality requires more skill to adjust tension. In contrast, polyester is much easier to use due to its sturdiness.

Stitches:

Fill-stitches form different patterns and stitch directions, as well as cover large areas. Too many stitches will create small gaps and too few will show through the design.

Underlay stitches:

Though often overlooked, underlay stitching plays an important part in the final embroidery  quality and design. It helps to secure the fabric to the stabilizer, which strengthens the surface for embroidery stitches. It also raises the stitches, enhancing the design for a three-dimensional look.

Backing materials:

The amount of stability and support provided by backing materials often determines the quality of the finished product.

The topping:

Toppings prevent fibers from getting caught in between stitches on some rough textured fabrics such as fleece. This is made possible by stitching the embroidery through th stopping, the fabric, and the backing material. Toppings, such as water-soluble films, prevent embroidery stitches from sinking into the certain types of fabric when laid over stitches.

Locations:

The most noticeable area of the garment should be chosen as the central location of the embroidery design. However, this may be modified according to the type of garment on which the embroidery is to be applied.
