Custom Embroidery in Oklahoma City
Custom embroidery is a technique of stitching a logo directly on apparel. It is near and dear to our hearts (and it can be near and dear to yours depending on your order!). It’s the OG of our industry. Before custom screen printing was all the rage, embroidery reigned. Remember when you bought your first acid wash jean jacket? It was so rad, but it was missing something… maybe a cool patch on the sleeve, maybe your last name stitched across the back… whatever it was, custom embroidery was there to save the day.
To say that the art of custom embroidery has aged gracefully would be an understatement. Much like fine wine, Meryl Streep or that banging mix tape you made for Cindy Wilson back in high school but never actually gave her because why would Cindy Wilson ever want to date YOU… custom embroidery just keeps getting better and better.
Yes, we can still customize your jean jacket, but now we can do so much more.
Custom embroidery is perfect for:
- Your business — put your logo on polos or button-down shirts and let your employees be ambassadors of your brand
- Your event — we routinely handle trade shows, conferences and corporate events that need something extra
- Your sports — we’re talking matching backpacks and overnight bags, jerseys, track suits, or whatever your team needs
- Your clothing — hats, jackets, socks… seriously, we’ll do it all
Why should I choose custom embroidery over screen printing?
While embroidery can certainly be used for fun projects, at the end of the day what sets custom embroidery apart from screen printing is the professional detail of the end product. If you want a clean design that makes a statement, embroidery could be your new best friend. And did we mention durability?! Your embroidered products are going to LAST. If you wash a screen-printed shirt enough, there’s a good chance the design might fade. That’s not the case with custom embroidery.
Lastly, custom embroidery is more versatile. The variety of products you can embroider far outweighs what screen printing can do. Screen printing is ideal for large orders, large logos and t-shirts. Embroidery should be used if you’re altering outerwear, fuzzy materials or if you want your design to really pop.
What’s the price difference between custom embroidery and screen printing?
Honestly, depending on the size and scope of your order, custom embroidery is likely going to cost more than screen printing. It costs extra because you’re paying for a more detailed, professional look.
