Custom Embroidery Service

To give you a better understanding of all the great embroidery services that ShirtsHouse© has produced, please acknowledge the following two embroidery techniques that are mainly used when applying all logos & letters to your garment: satin and fill stitch embroidery. They create the same design, but bring different visual effects and textures to the design. The following information will help you choose the perfect embroidery for your garment.

Satin Stitch Embroidery

Satin stitch gets its name from its sheen as it catches light to reflect a soft, yet bright, color like satin.
  • A satin stitch is often used for lettering, 2 inches or smaller in height.
  • This stitch produces a lower stitch count overall, is used on simple designs and gives a smooth clean satin finish. This is our standard embroidery stitch.
  • If you would like to see some examples, please visit our Custom Embroidery Design Sample page

Fill Stitch Embroidery

Fill stitch is useful when enlarging letters or creating large designs that are 3 inches or larger. Fill Stitch is made up of smaller stitches that fill a larger area, whereas satin stitches use one stitch to cover an entire area. When used on large designs or letters, this stitch eliminates the possibility of snags. It also allows your design to be shielded from damages due to everyday wear. Embroidered letters and numbers can be done with either of the above applications to produce beautiful custom embroidered apparel.
