Today, in this blog, we will be discussing the difference between printing and embroidery.

First, let us understand what these options are majorly available for. You receive these options after you have selected colours for various elements of a particular style of sportswear while using a 3D Kit Designer online. It is after this step that you are requested to add your team’s or club’s logo, followed by the options of printing and embroidering. These repeats while adding a sponsor’s logo, and team members’ names, numbers and initials.

Now, the question arises, which one should you go with, printing or embroidery. Here we help you solve that dilemma.

Print, also known as sublimation, involves the procedure of sublimation dying the club’s logo onto the special toretex material. On the other hand, embroidery involves the procedure of stitching the club’s logo on the garment. It is interesting to note that in printed sportswear, logos and other details are still embroidered on the sportswear around the outside.

While printing is a new style used by numerous professional clubs these days, embroidery, on the other hand, is still the most used form of club logo application.

Sponsors logos stand out in printing, while embroidered sponsors logos will never peel off or start fading away, and you will never have to replace your sportswear because of faulty sponsors logo.

When it comes to numbers and names, printing will provide lightweight numbers that would stand out more on the back of the shirts, while embroidering will offer maximum durability, and personalization on all items.

With these lines of differences, we hope it will be easy for you to choose between printing and embroidery.

Despite this, it is advisable to collect more details from your manufacturer before finalizing either. Manufacturers like Zapkam offer detailed information on their website, thereby easing the entire process for you.

Before signing off, we would like to mention that most manufacturers do not accept returned personalised sports kits, so make sure you gather all the required details and choose the option that best fits your needs before placing the order.
