Embroidery – Why Should You Choose It?

Each printing method has its benefits. Screen printing is beneficial for large orders and is more cost and time effective. But what about embroidery? What are the benefits of choosing embroidery over screen printing?

Embroidery uses a different method for customising t-shirts and other apparel. As you're probably aware, the embroidery technique involves stitching the design. As it's a needle and thread job, the quality of the attire must be high, and the material ideally needs to be dense.

Cotton is a favourable and recommended choice, especially polo shirts. The main reason for using thicker materials is because it can handle the pulling from the stitching, reducing damage, i.e. holes. So, unfortunately, polyester isn't recommended. The turnaround for completing polo shirt embroidery is short, and Buytshirtsonline generally completes the order within seven days! How is it done so quick? We have state-of-the-art machinery that does it all as well as a specialist team who can professionally embroider onto garments of your choice with a keen eye for detail.

Choosing to embroider on a polo shirt or another piece of clothing with similar quality and thickness looks more professional and appealing. Polo shirt embroidery is popular amongst businesses wanting to customise work uniforms or create personalised workwear for events. Another critical benefit of polo t-shirt embroidery is durability, meaning it's long-lasting and won't fade away with washes over time. Again, this t-shirt printing method is the perfect and favourable choice for corporate and work uniforms. While embroidery is more costly than screen printing, it's reflected in the quality and resilience. You can also find out the pros and cons of screen printing and embroidery and more in our T-Shirt Content Hub.

Of course, embroidery isn't restricted to just workwear. If you want to stand out and create custom t-shirts for hen or stag party, or another personal event or occasion, embroidery is still a valuable t-shirt printing option.
