3 Helpful Tips When Getting Your Logo Ready for Embroidery

Thinking about purchasing some merchandise with your business logo embroidered? When submitting your logo or artwork for embroidery, some details from your design can get lost in translation when converting your logo into embroidery.

Custom Logo Embroidery from NYFifth

In order to turn your carefully designed logo into stitches, the embroiderer must first digitize your design. Digitizing is the process of converting the the artwork file into a stitch file that an embroidery machine can sew on a garment. When converting the artwork, this is where trouble often occurs.

To make sure your logo does not run into any problems, here are some helpful tips to make sure your embroidered logo looks as good as it does on paper.

TIP 1: Provide a High Quality Graphic

Image Quality for Logo Embroidery from NYFifth

To make sure your logo or artwork is embroidered precisely the way you envisioned it, provide as must detail as you can. This means giving the embroiderer the highest resolution graphic possible.

Most times, embroiderers need to enlarge the image size for embroidering. With enlarging images comes pixelation (see above image to the left). If you’re enlarging a small image, the finer details will disappear and the edges can become jagged. Providing a high quality and large image will guarantee you a better chance in getting your embroidered logo that way you’ve imaged it to be.

TIP 2: Try to Avoid Gradient Details

Example of Gradient Embroidery from NYFifth

Gradients, which are colors that fade from one to another, are usually difficult to do with embroidery. Gradient embroidery can be done but the end result will not look as nice as the artwork you’ve submitted. The thread colors used can be overlapped to help fool the human eye into thinking it’s a gradient, but then again it won’t look as nice as if it were screen printed. To make sure your logo looks flawless, we would recommend converting the gradient areas into solid colors for a smooth, clean and clearer design.

TIP 3: Make Sure Text Isn’t Too Small

Text Size for Logo Embroidery from NYFifth

Text size is important when it comes to having your logo embroidered on hats, polo shirts, and whatnot. If your text is too small for people to read from a distance, then that would just be a wasted opportunity to get your logo noticed. On top of not making it legible, small text will sometimes end up looking like a small blob stitched together (see above image for example).

Ideally, you would want your text to be AT LEAST 0.25″ tall for it to be legible. If you’re not too sure if your text meets that requirement, we will let you know and suggest ways you can edit your artwork.


Getting your logo embroidered that way you want takes some time. Just as long as you have these three tips in mind, you’ll be just fine! With our custom embroidery services, we try to make it as crisp as possible to meet our customer’s expectations. If there is a fault in your design when converting it, we will provide feedback on what will and won’t look good as well as ways you can improve the design.

Important Embroidery Terms

Important Embroidery Terms from NYFifth

If you’re looking for a classic and timeless look, embroidery is probably your best choice. Custom embroidery is the method used for decorating fabrics with a needle and thread. Embroidery makes your logo looks professional, sleek and modern. Embroidered apparel can last for a really long time, and it doesn’t wash or fade out because it becomes one with the fabric itself. Today, we are going to introduce some important embroidery terms to you, like 3D Foam Embroidery, Monogram, Puff Embroidery and more. You can add you favorite logo, team logo or company logo with custom embroidery to your tees, sports shirts, jackets, hats and more.

3-D Foam Embroidery

3-D Foam Embroidery is used to add dimension to an embroidery pattern that is typically used on caps. The 3D Foam is placed on the topside of the pattern and stitched over with shortened stitches to cut the Foam. The excessive foam is then pulled away from the embroidery giving a 3D appearance. 3D Foams are available in various thickness.

Backing

Backing is often called stabilizer that is a woven or non-woven material added to the back of the fabric being embroidered. It can be hooped with the item or placed between the machine throat plate and the hooped garment. It comes in various weights in three types- tearaway, cutaway and washaway.

Digitizing

Digitizing is a computerized method of converting artwork into a series of commands to be read by an embroidery machine’s computer. It is extremely important and will determine the quality of the finished embroidery. Every action of the embroidery machine is controlled by the digitized program including the movement of the pantograph to form various stitches, thread changes, thread trims, and many other functions.

Fill Stitch

Fill Stitch is one of the three most common stitches used in embroidery along with the run stitches and satin stitches. A series of running stitches commonly combined to cover large areas. Different fill patterns can be created by altering the angle, length and repeat sequence of the stitches.

Monogram

Embroidered design composed of one or more letters, usually the initials in a name.

Puff Embroidery

Puff Embroidery is done mostly on baseball style caps. It can make a design really stand off on a cap. The additional height used to create the “puff” effect is achieved by using a piece of foam that is placed on top of the item being embroidered. Then the embroidery is done over the top of the piece of foam giving it the “puff” effect.

Stitch Count

Stitch Count, in its simplest form, is defined as the number of embroidery stitches it takes to create a logo in embroidery. How many stitches it takes to create a logo in embroidery is in direct relation to the size or complexity of the logo. The bigger the image, the more stitches need to create it in embroidery.
