How To Embroider Your Logo Onto Aprons

Posted in Clothing with tags , , , , , on January 11, 2015 by Richard

My company – RT Promotions – offers a wide range of aprons to suit any hospitality outlet. They range from long waist, to simple waist styles, and all come with challenges on how best to embroider and personalise them for your business.

I’ve noticed that when clients select a style of apron for their business, they put a great deal of time and effort into choosing the right ‘look’ the right colour and style, and then of course, the right price – but I recommend you give equal consideration to the application of the logo and branding and any other decoration that’s needed.

Remember – these garments are going to get some rough treatment and are certainly going to be washed regularly; so the decoration process has to be able to withstand the rigours of continual use.

Don’t forget – the washing instructions on the label only apply to the garment, not the decoration. With this in mind, we always recommend that only embroidery be used.

Embroidery is harder wearing than other decorative treatments, and is particularly suited to smaller designs and logos. It always has a quality look and feel and will often outlive the garment!!

Embroidery is far more versatile than people imagine – but – do give plenty of thought to the exact position for the logo or design when branding onto aprons.

The best example of getting it wrong is when branding onto a full length apron – as I’ve pictured here. Remember, that when in use, many of your staff will drop the top half of the apron, effectively folding it over, so if you’ve had your logo embroidered centrally and onto the top half – it’s not even going to be visible by the time your staff have folded it over!!!

Half sized or bar aprons, are becoming increasingly popular and pose fresh challenges for where to position your logo. Whatever you do, don’t embroider centrally onto these garments – the design brings far to much attention to the crotch area – not a good idea!!! A really effective position is onto the thigh area and it has the added advantage of being clear of any pockets.
