Decom uses the highest grades of thread featuring treads by Isocord, Robison-Anton, and Madeira. Understanding the wide range of colors available we make it easier to find the colors you need within the Pantone color system. Specialty threads such as hi vis, metallic and glow are used.
With Specialty Embroidery we can use advance techniques such as: 3D (raised lettering and design), Applique (the sewing of fabric onto the top of the product creating the logo or design), Reverse Applique (the sewing of fabric onto the underside of the product creating a frayed or distressed look to your logo or design).
Embroidery naturally looks better on stronger fabrics. Examples of fabrics that sew really well are caps, twill, canvas, poly denier nylon (bags and duffels) and most outer wear. Sewn logos on these fabrics generally don't need as many underlay fill stitches to maintain the integrity of the design so your stitch counts will be lower.
Very soft or flimsy fabrics, like rayon, silk, soft pima cotton and dry fit fabrics, require a very different digitizing approach and more underlay stitches to stabilize the embroidered design.
High pile fabrics, such as fleece, sweatshirts, hoodies, polar fleece, terry cloth (beach and bath towels) and other thick fabrics hide the small detail of a custom embroidery design and therefore have to be modified to work well on those substrates. Solvy topping is used on these fabrics to help improve the look of embroidery on these challenging fabrics.
