Why You’ll Want Your Item Embroidered Instead of Screen Printed

Want to create a high-quality, long-lasting design to adorn custom-designed apparel or accessories? Go for embroidery over screen printing every time.

Here’s why you’ll want your item embroidered instead of screen printed:

Get more colors for the same price

With embroidery, you typically pay a flat fee for your setup cost, regardless of the number of colors in your logo. With screen printing, you typically pay per color, since a different screen is needed for each color. If you like a lot of bright, vibrant colors (and who doesn’t?) this could save you a significant amount of money.

Long-lasting design

Unlike screen printing, which tends to crack or fade over time, embroidered designs won’t fade away over the course of multiple washes and numerous years.

Put your logo on tougher fabrics

Screen printing just won’t work well on some fabrics, like fleece and fuzzy fabrics. Because these fabrics are uneven, screen printing will flake off. Try embroidery instead!

History of Embroidery

You probably already know that embroidery is a great way to get your business, team or organization noticed. You may also have some embroidered clothing in your closet. But did you know that embroidery has a long and fascinating history?

Humans have long used thread to decorate clothing and objects. We can trace the history of embroidery back to 30,000 B.C., during the Cro-Magnon period. A recent archeological find turned up the fossilized remains of boots, clothing and a hat that were decorated with hand stitching.

Embroidery became popular in Europe during the Renaissance, although only royalty could afford to wear it. Painter Carlo Crivelli created portraits of aristocratic women and figures from the Bible wearing beautifully embroidered clothing.

Indeed, embroidery has been a mark of wealth and status in numerous cultures, including India, China, Japan and Persia.

It wasn’t until the Industrial Revolution that new manufacturing techniques allowed for affordable embroidered clothing.

Today, embroidery adorns trendy clothing, both on the runway and in everyday shops. It’s not just about fashion these days! Embroidery is also a way for companies, teams and other organizations to promote themselves.
