What’s the difference between embroidery vs screen printing ?

There are unique benefits to both embroidery and screen printing. iLogo proudly offers both techniques to ensure we can meet the needs of each and every custom order.

  1. Embroidery

    Embroidery has made a name for itself as a staple in uniform apparel because it provides a long-lasting and refined look to logos. Why is embroidery such a great option for logos? Well, embroidery is done by an embroidery machine that stitches threads directly into the garment, making for a polished look that withstands wear and tear. Embroidery is the craft of decorating fabric or other materials using a needle to apply thread or yarn. Contemporary is stitched using an computerized embroidery machine using patterns digitized through a computer software program. Machine embroidery is used to add logos and other designs onto a wide variety of products. iLogo provides custom embroidery on t-shirts, polo shirts, shirts, hoodies jackets, performance wear and a few more products.

  2. Screen printing

    Screen printing requires you to create a stencil or template of the design. This is held in place with the help of a screen which is, usually, made of nylon mesh. The screen is the placed in position on top of the t-shirt to be printed. Ink is then flooded onto the screen and spread to ensure it fully spread on the screen. The ink passes through the wire mesh and the stencil of the design to print onto the t-shirt. Excess ink on the screen is wiped away. The screen is then removed and the t-shirt cured, cured and ready. is ideal for vibrant, large, designs but may not last quite as long as an embroidered design

After you’ve decided what look best suits your needs, consider your budget and the complexity of your artwork on your custome product. Embroidery offers a professional look to custom products and designs but is, on average, a higher price point than screen printing. Screen printing is cost-effective and can be a great choice for large orders.
