What is embroidered workwear?

Want to add a personal feel to your work clothing? Then embroidered workwear is for you! Embroidery is the art of decorating materials using a needle to apply thread or yarn. The best thing about it is you can embroider any design you want. for example: logos, images and text like names and initials. There are two types of embroidery, embroidery by hand and embroidery by machine. Machine embroidery is easier, sleeker and more efficient and therefore seems like the better choice. However, hand embroidery has a more established feel to it that might be more accustomed to you.

How do you get my logo on clothing?

With hand embroidery its pretty simple, they knit your design into the material. But with machine embroidery it is a lot more complicated. Embroidery machines are not capable of reading the same files that a computer can, so often customers will send us an image in a file that the computer can read (JPG or PNG) and we will convert into a format the embroidery machine can read for you. This way the machine can knit the image onto the clothing with no problems.

What type of embroidery is right for me?

Straight Stitch: The straight stitch, the basic stitch in hand-sewing and embroidery, is the act of passing a needle through the fabric at a regular distance. Contrary to the name the straight stich doesn’t have to be done in a straight line and curves can be made.

Satin Stitch: In sewing and embroidery, a satin stitch or damask stitch is a series of flat stitches that are used to maintain a smooth edge.

Fill Stitch: A fill stitch is more durable than the other stitches. Fill stitches in hand embroidery are simply a way to fill a shape with a certain stitch.

Can you embroider specialist protective garments?

When you want to customize your protective clothing, the normal embroidering isn’t the best way to go as it is sometimes difficult for the needles to penetrate it. The best way to do it is heat sealing and luckily, we do this too. Heat sealing is the process of using a high temperature and a lot of pressure to weld the image onto the piece of clothing. We can do this with a variety of different colours and shapes. Unfortunately, we are unable to customize waterproof garments as all methods create holes in the clothing which allows liquids to pass through it.
