7. What is the difference between embroidery and silkscreen?
Answer: Embroidery now days is a more popular method of personalizing your towels or robes, the customers know there is more work done using embroidery and appreciate the detail and time it takes to do each towel. Embroidery has the advantage of lower cost for set up, especially when several colors are involved , and you can order as little as 12 pcs. For silkscreen the minimum order is a little higher, and the process is faster where ink is pressed onto the towel, so it is a cheaper process and does cost less than embroidery.
* embroidery is stitched on the towel therefore faces, scenery, and other photo like images will not come out as clear as a picture. Embroidery is great for logos, and outlined designs.
* Placement - We place the embroidery on the bottom center of the towel, about 8-10 inches from the bottom hem. Embroidery does not feel great on your skin , and having it placed on the bottom center will put it in the most visible place on the towel at all time. Unless requested by the customer, bottom center is the default placement for the embroidery design. However, we can do it any place you like.
* Since embroidered towels are custom towels there is no refund or exchange on custom towels, please make sure you approve the logo, and sign the invoice.
* Size - Embroidery has its limitation as far as size, and recommended amount of stitches. We can not go larger than 10 inches , plus having so many stitches in one place on the towel will create a problem later on
* Thread Color - We can do a pantone color match if we have it on the shelf,if not requested we will use our closest thread color available. If you want to match a specific Pantone color ,please indicate it when placing your order,if order is large enough we can order the threads specifically for your order, on small order, a fee will be charged to order the special thread.
Silk Screen :
* Silk Screen is Printed Ink on the towel. Similar to printing on shirts.
* Placement - Silk Screen can be done as big as 40 Inches and placed on the center of the towel.
* Ink Color - We can do a pantone color match for your color. More than one color available for Silk Screen.
* Since printed towels are custom towels there is no refund or exchange on custom towels, please make sure you approve the logo, and sign the invoice.
