Embroidery & Custom Screen Printing: Which One Is Best?

Posted on June 25, 2022

If you need custom jerseys for your team, you may be asking yourself whether to go with embroidery or use a custom screen printing process. At Tri-Valley Sports, we provide both options for almost every type of uniform, including our Under Armor jerseys. However, there are a few pros and cons to consider when choosing between these two customization options. Here’s what you should consider.

Embroidery Options

When choosing a jersey with long-lasting results, embroidery is a great option! The tradition of embroidery dates back to 30,000 BC, and an archaeology site found remains of clothing with embroidery still intact. If that doesn’t prove the worth of embroidery, nothing else will! 

The Pros & Cons

Embroidery colors and design options are endless. We’d say that’s a pretty awesome perk. If you are looking for a design that looks good and lasts longer, choose a professional embroidery company like Tri-Valley. Finally, most embroidered options only work with heavier or thicker materials, as thin and light jerseys tend to bunch or fold during the embroidery process. While embroidery styles are endless, this can add up in price if you aren’t careful.

Custom Screen Printing Options

The idea behind screen printing dates back to the Song Dynasty in China to print money! Today, screen printing is used on almost any surface, including your T-Shirts, Sweatshirts, and even your favorite beer glass. 

The Pros & Cons

The best part about screen printing, of course, is its versatility in color and design. Finally, screen printing options are less expensive than embroidery. However, screen printing can wear off after time or due to over-washing, so be sure to follow your garment’s care instructions.
