Embroidered polo shirts are produced using an embroidery machine, the machine stitches the logos and lettering onto the polo shirt, this is a great option for garments that are to be washed on a regular basis. Embroidery is suited to small garment areas such as breast pockets, we would not recommend embroidery for large areas.
Heat Transfer Vinyl (Flex)
This method of garment printing is produced using a vinyl cutter which cuts out the design and lettering, the excess area is then weeded away and the design is transferred to the polo shirt using a heat press. This method is great to produce vibrant vector graphics and lettering on polo shirts, however, it is less suitable for multi-coloured designs.
Print and Cut Vinyl (Flex)
Just like standard vinyl it is cut using a vinyl cutter and applied using a heat press, however, before this, the vinyl can be printed using a solvent printer. The production team firstly create a cutting contour for the image which is then printed and placed on the vinyl cutter. A magic eye on the vinyl cutter locates registration marks on the print and cuts around it using cut contour vector. This method of polo shirt printing is great for printing full-colour images onto garments that have a defined vector outline.
Top tips about polo shirt printing & embroidery
The best file format is PNG files as these will allow for transparent background on your graphic. JPEG’s, and TIFF’s can also be used, however, if there’s a background on the graphic that’s a different colour to the garment being printed then that will appear on the final product. For best results, upload your file as a PNG with a transparent background, this ensures that what appears in your file is what will appear on the final product.
* Please note polo shirt printing and embroidery is most suited to vector style graphics and spot colours, we do not recommend the use of full-colour gradients for this product.
