Machine embroidery is an embroidery process an embroidery machine is used to create patterns on textiles. It is used commercially in product branding, corporate advertising, and uniform decoration. FIELDS printwear has been embroidering in house since 1995. We can succesfully create a quality embroidery pattern for just about any design.

What should you know about embroidery?
Prices are based on the amount of stitches in a design. Average designs are around 7,000 stitches. The more stitches, the more money.

The amount of detail you can achieve with embroidery is much less than print. Often logos or designs need some adjusting so they are rendered their best in a stitched format.

There are 5 basic types of stitch patterns or styles used in creating embroidered designs.

Fill Stitch Fill Stitch Small, dense stitch pattern used to fill in areas over .5" wide. A lot of stitches and can often be replaced with an applique.
Satin Stitch Satin Stitch Smooth stitch that runs from edge to edge of a shape in one stitch. Most text looks best with this type of a stitch but it cannot exceed .5" wide.
Run Stitch Run Stitch For fine detail or very small text. Detail is not as sharp as printing since the stitch cannot be any thinner than the width of thread.
Steil Steil Very similar to satin, but always set to the same width. Often used in outlining shapes and letters or appliques.
Applique Applique Used to enhance large fill stitch areas by using material instead of stitching the entire area. Often used on athletic uniforms such as baseball jerseys. The materials are sewn down with either a satin, steil, or zig-zag stitch. This can save on stitching costs but also provides a great look.
