Appliqué is one of the most unique and exciting applications for embroidery, and is an ideal choice when dealing with large designs where high stitch counts are an issue.
This technique has been used extensively in the educational market for spirit wear. However traditional appliqué has also been a very labor intensive, time-consuming process involving cutting, positioning and fastening of the fabric. With this, came a higher cost of production, thus a higher cost to sell and fewer markets to sell to. Now, by using laser technology to cut the fabric right on the garment, we are able to reduce the process to a quick, hassle-free operation eliminating the need to pre-cut and position complex fabric shapes. In turn, the cost of the application is now very affordable, opening up many more markets to sell to.

Q: What is Applique?
A: Applique is a mix of laser etch and embroidery but with layering. By creating multiple layers, your design can have more depth and detail in many different ways.
Q: Can you applique T-Shirts?
A: Applique does not work on thin material like T-Shirts. Due to the layering of the process the imprint has much more weight than a typical tee would be able to handle. We can only applique on thicker material/fabric.
Q: What is layering (add’l Colors on pricing)?
A: Layering is the amount of layers needed to create your design with applique. For something like the Mille Lacs Lake image, seen below, it would be 2 Layers. 1 Layer of orange fabric, and another layer of dye sublimated fabric on top.
Q: How are the layers applied?
A: The layers are applied via an embroidery run stitch. Each individual layer will need to be stitched to the one below it all the way down to the garment.
