We can embroidery a T-shirt for example, however this typically adds too much additional cost to a low cost item and can look out of place. Most customers prefer to select Embroidery for executive, front office and sales staff uniforms.

Screen Printing is usually less expensive than embroidery, however if you have a large number of colors in your design, screen printing costs can be equal or more than embroidery. Having multiple print locations also increases the cost as there is more setup time and materials needed. Screen Printing is frequently selected whenever a large quantity is called for and often selected for single events like family reunions, charity events or for staff who might be working in an environment where the garment might be stained or damaged more easily. Screen printed items are also the most common promotional product for giveaways or contests.
