Previously on our blog, we shared some guidelines on caring for screen printed apparel, so it’s only right we touch base on embroidery care as well. After all, we do offer both services and each has its own benefit and proper use.
Let’s start by going through a brief description of what embroidery is in the first place. Embroidery by definition is the art of decorating fabrics using a needle and thread, or cloth that has been embroidered. There are many styles and techniques of embroidery that all vary greatly and modern machinery has allowed for embroidery on more difficult materials. Today, popular items to embroider include polos, jackets, towels, sheets, bags and even shoes.
To protect your embroidered items from abrasion, and to avoid bleeding of colors, we compiled a few simple tips below for you to follow.
It’s important to note that the garments itself will have their own care instructions on their label, but embroidery work does require additional special care. Our goal is for your custom embroidered products to age gracefully. As always, if you have any personal experience with these tips and have any additional guidance, leave us a comment below!
