Present your brand at corporate events with a flair of professionalism, or customize your own shirts. Uptempo will help you to bring out smart-casual and a touch of class on any apparel.
What is Embroidery?
Shirt embroidery adds sophistication with its three-dimensional feel by threading your design onto the apparel. The design could be a logo, name or image that will be digitized, approved and run through our high-tech, high-precision machines. The result of intricately stitching over repeatedly within a small space creates a bold and highly detailed artwork on your apparel. It also reflects light distinctively to boldly brand your design with a classic and prestigious appeal.

Did you Know?
If you are deliberating between going with printing or embroidery, this might help you decide. Here are some tips on what to consider.
– Style – Embroidery complements the smart-casual look best. If you are looking to brand business shirts or polo tees for frequent corporate wear, it works better in creating a swanky professional look in comparison to the large runs of promotional giveaways branded by printing. In contrast, the softer handle of printing is great for lightweight tee shirts as it might cause some wrinkles and puckering with its heavy threading.
– Artwork Size – Due to the intricate stitches and fine detail, it is mostly used for small artwork designs such as names or logos. As the cost is dependant on the number of stitches and size of the artwork, bigger designs are usually not recommended. If you are looking to create apparel with large multi-coloured and eye-catching designs, custom screen printing might be the way to go.
– Design Factors – There are some limitations when it comes to design. It is not advised for artwork that has gradients, distressed graphics or photographic images. Texts that are too small or with lines that are too thin would also be digitized to produce non-ideal outcomes. We thus recommend a minimum line thickness of 0.05 inches for your artwork.
