CLEAN AND CRISP EMBROIDERY
How small can we go when trying to embroider small text? A good rule is to try to keep your text at 1/4″ if possible. This size will look good on anything from pique knit golf shirts to fleece jackets. The smaller the text the better the fabric needs to be to hold the stitches in place to form the letter so the human eye can read it. Twill and nylons do a great job at this. Remember, if the embroidery does not look clean and crisp people may not want to wear it. It also helps to keep the text bold when designing your logo. The wider the letter the cleaner it will appear when embroidered Wider letters allow more of the thread to sit on top of the fabric and be visible to the human eye. Quality is everything with embroidery from start to finish. A good embroiderer will tell you right away if your logo contains text that is too small and offer suggestions. Those with less experience will attempt to do the impossible and you’ll only end up with a messy logo.
