Utilizing custom embroidered polo shirts is always a great way to advertise your business, promote your event or give away at conferences. We are all familiar with some of the more common stitched branded logos like those on Ralph Lauren polo shirts or those from Lacoste. People are naturally drawn to look at that section of your polo shirt and are even more likely to notice if you have something unique.

A boys polo shirt that is used for a school uniform is another great use for ordering bulk polo shirts to have customized with the schools logo or mascot. You can really help show your school spirit with a well-made polo shirt and a nicely designed custom embroidery job.

A custom polo shirt is generally embroidered rather than printed like other custom designed shirts and clothing.  A polo shirt is rather unique in that regard and it clearly adds some elegance to the shirt by giving it a better quality feel. You’ll want to make sure you really do your research to find both the best price but also the best quality.  Good workmanship, a tight quality control and affordable prices are all part of what makes a good apparel maker and embroiderer.

The price of a polo shirt that is custom embroidered is going to vary quite a bit depending on a number of factors:

  • The quality of the shirt.
  • The number of embroidered shirts ordered.
  • The complexity and uniqueness of the design.

Most good quality businesses will be able to provide you with a numerous design possibilities as well as stock art to choose from.  Additionally, you should be able to upload your own artwork so that the designer, or digitizer, can correctly reproduce your own company, school or event logo on your shirt.

You should also be able to choose from a wide variety of materials for your polo shirt.  These fabrics are usually cotton pique,  a pique poly/cotton blend or simply a 100% polyester or cotton shirt.  A nice combed cotton pique or a polo shirt made from Egyptian cotton will probably be the most expensive choice but will give you the most elegant and refined look.

Another often overlooked aspect of a custom embroidered polo shirt is the type of thread that is used, the stitch pattern and the backing material.  Typically, the thread is made from either polyester or rayon.  Rayon typically looks better although it is prone to breaking while polyester thread is more durable but does not always reproduce the best design.  The backing material is usually of two varieties: tearaway or cutaway. A cutaway backing material, one that must be cut away with scissors after the sewing, is best for k nit fabrics while the tearaway kind is found in woven fabrics.  Some companies may try to cut corners by using the incorrect backing or no backing at all.  Make sure you find out these little details before you complete an order for a custom embroidered polo shirt.
