Best Laser Applique in Ohio
In the context of sewing, appliqué refers to a needlework technique in which pieces of fabric, embroidery, or other materials are sewn onto another piece of fabric to create designs, patterns, or pictures. The process of applique embroidery combines the texture and precision of embroidery with the functionality and possibilities of full-color printing. Think of it similar to an advanced form of patchwork. First, a base layer is embroidered to form the background of your text or logo. Next, an additional layer of color fabric is laid over the top of the first layer to create a 3D appearance. Often times this is used to create an enhanced logo for sportswear because of the 3D appearance. An example of this would be logos on high-end collegiate or team gear.
Once the final layer of fabric is added to the text or logo, a laser is then used to cut away the excess fabric from the embroidered area of your design. Then, the final stitches are added to secure the top layer of the fabric. After that is completed, your finished product is ready.
In addition to sportswear, this is also a high-end option for baby clothes, work and school uniforms, patches, and logo wear. If you’d like to learn more about this process and if it’s a good fit for your next project, give us a call today. We’ll help you find the best fit!
