Types of embroidery for shirts polos, hats, and jackets

Some companies try to make embroidery complicated by inventing fancy names for a straightforward process. Don’t be fooled by complicated descriptions, there are only 3 types of embroidery:

Direct embroidery

The most popular embroidery option, this is when logos and designs are sewn directly onto garment locations such as the left chest, the sleeve, or the back of the neck, known as a “locker tag”. Direct embroidery allows you to use as many colors as needed in a design. The is great for embroidered team and company logos. Direct embroidery is also the best embroidery for hats.

Monogramming and numbering

This is a great way to personalize embroidery on shirts, hats, and jackets. This is when a team member gets their name and/or number embroidered onto the garment. Names and numbers are often sewn on the sleeves, back of necks, or pockets of garments. They are also embroidered on the back or side of hats. Sometimes a service business has employee names on the front of a shirt so that customers can quickly know the name of a team member. Another great way to get personalized embroidery is to have a player name sewn on a customized hat.

Tackle Twill

For an upscale collegiate look, we suggest tackle twill. This upscale look involves cutting letters out of cloth and then sewing the letter directly on to the front of the shirt.
