Screen printing or Embroidery? Which do I choose? | Crackerjack Shack

Posted by

Being a business owner comes with a lot of decisions to make. One of these being - Do I put my employees in embroidered shirts or screen printed shirts? We hope the following lists will help you decide what you need for your next custom apparel order for your business.

When to order screen printed apparel:

1. You want to brand your company without spending all of your marketing budget

2. Employee turnover is high

3. Work in an industry that is hands-on (screen-printed logos clean much easier) 

When to order embroidered apparel:

1. You have a significant marketing budget

2. Employees have longevity in the work place

Here at the Crackerjack Shack, we use a combination of both screen printed and embroidered garments in the work place. It really just depends on what you, as a business owner, prefer! Whatever you decide, if we are producing the apparel, we promise it will be a great quality product! 

Stay safe on the roads!
