Our own Lois Malone was interviewed today by The Dove TV — check out the interview here:
Fonts – yes there are many types of fonts out there. They look really cool, but they all don’t work for embroidery.
A good embroiderer will take into consideration several things when doing a logo with various fonts.
1 – What type of apparel will the logo be going on? Is it a woven type material or a stretchy type material like a polo shirt?
Is it fleece material or a thin windjacket?
The thinner the font, the more difficult it is to sew. It may look great on paper, but thread doesn’t go as thin as ink. If it is thin and going on fleece, the font will nearly disappear in the fleece material.
If the font is thick, and it is going on a thin polo shirt or thin windjacket, the material may begin to tear after time, leading to holes in the apparel.
2 – A good embroiderer will also take into account how many stitches involved in the logo/design. The digitizer can make an embroidery file for several types of apparel.
3 – If the font is very small, a good embroiderer will give options on what will work best plus still make your logo look it’s best.
So, what’s the answer? Will your logo will work for embroidery?
It’s best to send the embroiderer your logo. They will ask the necessary questions to determine the best way to make your logo work on different types of apparel.
