Embroidery is the simple use of threads made into designs or logos as you wished for customization.

As you may already know, the simplest explanation of embroidery is that it involves intricate needlework where colored threads are stitched onto a piece of fabric or product (in our case, a T-Shirt) to form a design or pattern.
The embroidery threads will be supported by a backing that will be on the inner side of your embroidered shirts or embroidered clothing.
Embroidery is commonly used to embroider professional corporate logo embroidery, company logo name embroidery, individual name embroidery and Custom Embroidery Patch as well!
Other methods of printing are just not suitable to achieve the kind of effect that you would like with Embroidery.

If you're passionate about embroidery, let's explore further into embroidery, its origins and the processes involved.
Let’s start off by delving into the history of embroidery. Have you ever wonder where and how it came about?
Well, truth be told, embroidery is a popular ancient technique with roots dating back to the 3rd century. It was also widely used across the world from China to Sweden. Elaborate embroidery was often seen as a symbol of prestige and wealth.
In England, for example, the term English work (or Opus Anglicanum) was coined for fine needlework done on clothing. They are also usually done on expensive materials such as rich velvet. Gold and silver threads were commonly used as well.

This highly sought-after skill for fine embroidery was soon put to danger after the Industrial Revolution.
Following the trend of mass production, machine embroidery came to live! It has brought a revolutionary change in the world and today, computerized embroidery machines are used to create the patterns on t-shirts.
Computerized embroidery is perfect for bulk production of standardized prints on t-shirts and keeps the costs of printing very affordable.
These machines are computer-controlled machines that can stitch up to 1,000 needles a minute and up to >16 different colors per design.
The embroidery machines include an embroidery head. This head can be in singles or multiples in different machines. Multiple needles are fixed into this head.
In addition, another feature of the embroidery machine is the frame on which you would affix your t-shirt (we will be touching on this topic further later on in this article). This frame is also known as the panto-graph.

As we’ve mentioned above, the common use of embroidery printing now is no longer a handmade, delicate piece of design.
As demands for standardized printing has increased, computerized embroidery machines are the norm.
However, don’t be deceived by the word ‘computerized’. This word may seem to suggest that it is a seemingly easy and automated process, but in reality, the process of computerized embroidery is more than a push button.
In fact, the key to computerized embroidery is the digital design file.
Now that we have completed the overview of the process of embroidery, let's touch on further on the critical part, which is the creation of the design file.
This is the hardest bit as the design has to be of the highest quality in order for it to be stitched by the machine well.
