Applique, for the uninitiated, involves cutting materials and then applying them with embroidery to a garment, creating a texturally interesting, multidimensional design on the surface. It is a great option for customers who want to add a logo or custom design to their fabric items, and give them a little extra attention. As it utilizes large cuts of fabric instead of thread, custom applique embroidery is more cost-effective than other embroidery options while still producing a high quality, dynamic garment.
In Your Face Apparel uses Ioline plotter equipment to cut clean, intricate shapes and patterns. We are capable of utilizing a number of fabrics for this procedure including, leather, chenille, twill, cotton or sequin stretch, but keep in mind, the cutting machine is limited to what it will cut properly. Applique is best for projects when a customer wants something a little more unique than standard embroidery or tackle twill, but they still need a softer, more flexible application, such as in the case of sports jerseys, duffel bags, blankets and more.
