Embroidery News: Apparel Defined:
Come across some unknown words when shopping for embroidered
apparel? Here are some definitions:
- Bonded Fleece - multiple layers of fleece are bonded together
to create a heavier fleece
- Carded Ring Spun Cotton - cotton that contains a wider range
of fiber lengths because it hasn't been combed and therefore
isn't as strong as combed cotton
- Chin Guard - a fold of soft fabric located where the zipper
ends at the neck. This fabric is also referred to as a "zipper garage".
Can Your Logo Be Too Tall?
If your logo is vertically orientated it can usually be sized
down so it meets the standard sizing for a left chest logo.
Having a "tall" logo will allow you to have a slightly larger
logo because there is more vertical than horizontal space in the
left chest area. If your embroidered logo is sized so its 4"
high or more and you want to use shirts with a left chest pocket
you may want to have your logo embroidered in the right chest
Logo File Name?
About to send artwork to your embroiderer? Make sure the file has
a distinctive name. Resist the temptation to call your file
"logo", "shirts" or "caps".
