Benefits of machine embroidery
When you’re looking to have clothing and accessories branded or decorated with a design of your choice, there will be other techniques, such as printing and hand embroidery that you can consider. But, there are a range of advantages to machine embroidery that will make it the most suitable choice for certain projects, and we’re going to outline those here.
It is trustworthy
When we have to brand or decorate an item with embroidery, all we need is a good machine and a digitized file done by a professional embroidery digitizer. The machine embroidery makes the logo or design standout and gives a rich and premium feel to the clothing. It is ten times long-lasting than the screen-printing. We can wash the item as many times as we want but the embroidery will stay till the fabric lasts, sometimes it even outshines the life of the fabric, unlike screen-printing which fades after a few washes.
It’s fast and efficient
Apart from being trustworthy and reliable, machine embroidery is quick, which means big jobs can be completed in a short space of time. While digitizing for a design might take a long time, once the design file is created, it simply needs to be fed into the embroidery machine, which will get to work. And, a lot of this process is automated, which means everything can be done with minimal interruptions. If a design is digitized professionally, it makes the work of embroidery machine and embroider like a cakewalk. The design should run flawlessly without any thread breaks and at high speed to finish the work less time. An unprofessional design would take hours and might also break the machine in the long run.
Other factors for a quality embroidery designs
We can use a variety of threads for machine embroidery. Rayon thread is the most popular, because it’s widely available, and has a very attractive sheen. It also comes in a huge gamut of colors, and it can withstand high-speed stitching without breaking or fraying.
Polyester thread is also a smart and popular choice for machine embroidery, as it provides a similar effect to rayon and also comes in a wide range of colors. It’s resistant to shrinking, fading, and bleeding too, which means it’s particularly great for kids’ clothes and sports kits. The limitation polyester thread is that it lacks the luster of a rayon thread
To prevent wrinkles, puckering, and other problems, the fabric must be stabilized. The backing provides support and stability to the garment which will improve the quality of the finished embroidered product. The method of stabilizing depends on the type of machine, the fabric type, and the design density.
For example, knits and large designs typically require firm stabilization. There are many methods for stabilizing fabric, but most often one or more additional pieces of material called stabilizers or interfacing are added beneath or on top of the fabric, or both. Stabilizer types include cut-away, tear-away, solvy water-soluble, heat-n-gone, filmoplast, and open mesh, sometimes in various combinations. Stabilizer helps to keep the embroidered piece from rubbing or irritating the skin like in left chest polo shirt designs or in children’s wear.
Design with a good quality stabilizer.
It’s surprising how much something as small as a needle can affect embroidery quality. For the most accurate stitch placement, use the finest, sharpest embroidery needle that can carry the thread through the fabric without damage to either. A size 70 or 75 needle works well with most fabrics; use an 80 for heavier or stiffer goods. Use a light ball point for knits and loosely woven fabrics; a sharp point for firmly woven goods, leather, and vinyl.
