Companies and individuals all around the world custom design shirts and other articles of clothing to promote their business or ideals. When it comes to custom designing clothing, there are two main methods that are used to impose an image onto an article—screen printing and embroidery. Both of these methods have positives and negatives to them, but both are popular for creating professional-looking pieces of clothing for your company.
Screen printing utilises computer imaging to press something onto a piece of clothing. The image produced usually has good quality, but it has gotten a bad reputation over the years because the image can peel and fade if it is not dried properly.
The more uncommon of the two in the business world, screen printing is generally used for t-shirt production and developing other kinds of marketing tools, such as stickers. This method is more cost efficient and therefore better for attaining large quantities of shirts and other items. If your company is on a budget, then screen printing is the way to go and it is not a bad choice by any means.
Embroidery, by contrast, is the stitching of an image onto cloth by means of a needle and thread, although machines do most of the work in today’s world. Because of this, there is no chance of the image fading off or scratching because it is a part of the material.
In the business world, embroidery is considered to be the more professional looking of the two methods. However, this superior appearance comes at a cost greater than that of screen printing. If you are only making a handful of articles or if have a little extra to spend, embroidery is the better option.
