More Than Just Embroidery

  • Nov 10, 2020

No doubt you’re familiar with embroidery as a popular means of decorating garments with logos, names, and messages. It’s been around for a long time, and we do a lot of it at APTCO. But do you know about these seven other methods of making your clothing match your brand?

    • EmbossEmboss

      Embossing always leaves a deboss (a recessed impression) on the back side of the material. With this method, you get an effect on both sides-the embossed side is raised while the debossed side is pressed in.

 


    • DebossDeboss

      This decoration technique features a pressed-in logo or company name. It's the reverse side of the emboss.

 


    • Blind debossBlind Deboss

      A trending decoration method, the blind deboss leaves an impression pressed into the material, but it doesn't press through the other side like a deboss or emboss would.

 

    • EtchingEtching

      Etching is done either by sandblasting or using a chemical process that etches the imprint into solid substrates such as glassware, crystal and metallic surfaces.

 


    • Laser engravingLaser Engraving

      This method uses light to burn an image onto the substrate, giving a logo a clean, polished appearance.

 


    • screen printingScreen Printing

      This decoration technique involves pressing ink through a fine mesh screen and onto the surface of a product.

 


    • Four color processFour-Color Process

      In this method, four different color values-cyan, magenta, yellow and black (CMYK)-are used together to create a color image.
