Summer Kickoff: Meet Embroidery & Print Applications Experts at the Boston Showcase at Roland DGA, Hosted by Melco!

As a screen printing or other apparel decoration business owner, it is very likely that at some point, you’ve had a customer request that you could not fulfill in-house. Maybe it was somebody looking for embroidered hats, or a little league coach requesting a small print order of 2 dozen dry-fit jerseys for his team. Chances are, you had to either refer that business to someone else, or outsource it, taking a big chunk out of any potential profit for the sale.

When Apparel Decoration Technologies Collide: Combine Embroidery with Print to Bring a New and Fun Application to Your Business!

If appliqué or sportswear are part of your business now, or could be in the future, then this article is for you! Traditional appliqué techniques using tackle twill or other material is a classic, time-honored approach. HOWEVER, with Melco technology, you can grow beyond traditional applications, and add printed graphics to your appliqué designs. See this technology in action at the Boston Showcase June 21–22.

Advantages of Mixed-Media Production with Embroidery & Print

It is common for a retail clothing business to use either embroidery or print to create team wear, workwear, souvenirs, and personalized products for their customers. However, advances in technology have made it possible to combine production techniques. Now, you can add embroidery to print designs, using laser alignment technology. Create decorated apparel in ways not possible before!
 

Create Stand-Out Embroidery on Blankets, Towels, Fleece, & More

I am often handed stockings or blankets from people who want names or monograms stitched onto the high loft materials. The problem becomes, how do you make the embroidery stand out nice and clear without the fluff of the fabric curving over and around the embroidery? Managing the nap and textures appropriately make all the difference between something that is OK and something that is awesome! So how is it done? How can you prevent the nap of the fabric from interfering with your design once the topping solvy is removed from the fabric?
