Thick Thread Embroidery

GetBold is the only shop in Western Canada that can offer you thick thread embroidery. We have mastered the art of embroidering soft “quilting yarn” onto a sweatshirt that gives an easy to wear, retro looking image on the front of a sweatshirt. This classic look is incredibly well received by our customers and yours. Layered with felt or twill applique and your design and logos stand out like never before.  Check out some photos of sweatshirt designs we have done recently, and then reach out to us to chat about how we can deliver to you eye catching thick thread embroidery for your custom apparel.

Soft Hand and Perfect for Sweatshirts

Thick thread embroidery is soft and easy to wear. Unlike thin thread, which will become bunchy and pinch the garment when stitched over large areas, thick thread “yarn” is perfect for large area stitching on sweatshirt material. The other great advantage to thick thread embroidery is that it requires a lot fewer stitches to cover an area, this drastically reduces the cost of embroidery large areas on a sweatshirt.

Sublimated Felt and Thick Thread

Thick thread embroidery can be combined with sublimated images on twill or felt to create stunning, eye catching decorations on sweatshirts or other apparel. The image above, K’AMBA is a full front image on a sweatshirt with a sublimated felt oval. It is super soft and easy to wear.

Multi Layer Thick Thread

Layering different colours of thick thread embroidery can give a nice hand sewn look.  There are lots of different options when embroidering large areas with thick thread embroidery. Give us a call or an email to discuss how we can turn your logo or design ideas into great looking apparel with soft yarn stitching. We love this classic style and look forward to making something really cool for you!
