Embroidery is the method used for decorating fabrics with a needle and a thread. Embroidery styles and techniques vary greatly but in this tutorial DMC will be featuring free style or “surface embroidery”. This decorative stitching technique, with its varied stitches, is worked independent from the fabrics weave allowing you to embroider any design, realistic or abstract onto any fabric you choose.
Screen printing is a great process for larger order of printed t-shirts (10+) and larger designs. Screen-printed t-shirts wash well and can maintain the print quality for some time. Most printing you see in the High Street shops will have been printed this way. although digital printing has become popular for photographs on shirts recently.
