Embroidery is our most popular decoration. Embroidery is the process of turning a graphic or text into a needle-and-thread work of
art for direct application to a garment or other fabric item. Using our state-of-the-art
software and multi-head industrial embroidery machines, embroidered designs can
be simple, one-colour designs or complex and multi-coloured works of intricate
detail. Of all the methods of fabric embellishment, embroidery is considered to
add the most sophistication and a higher perceived value to a garment. All
designs require a setup and are approved by clients prior to embroidery.
Embroidery can be applied onto a variety of products, including corporate
shirts, pants and jackets, cotton drill / hi-vis work wear, hats and bags.
Our custom embroidery is a primarily automated
process that translates a digital image into data that guides the operation of
industrial embroidery machines capable of up to 1,500 stitches per minute.
and digitise image:
Create or adapt a design for embroidery,
bearing in mind that simpler designs with open areas translate best into
stitches. Designs with open areas will allow fabric to drape more naturally.
Once complete, send us the digitised image so we can recreate and translate it
into stitch data for our embroidery machines. Brandworx does this in-house
using compatible software.
We will then select the appropriate stabiliser
for your items fabric. Next, we place all layers firmly in the embroidery
machine’s hoop, which holds the fabric securely and moves as the item is sewn.
The fabric is flattened and smoothed, but not stretched out of its original
shape. Finally, we insert the hoop into our embroidery machine.
Once we insert the hooped item and upload your
digitised file, the embroidery machine does most of the work. When the machine
finishes sewing, we remove the hoop, unhoop the fabric, and trim any excess
thread from the stabiliser. Some items may need a light steam pressing to
smooth any creases caused by the hoop.
