Benefits of embroidery

Embroidery has a number of standout characteristics. First, it creates beautiful dimension that no other print-on-demand (POD) technique can match. Thanks to the various stitching options and patterns available, it adds lush texture, and designs read richer than printing. Plus, it’s possible to embroider on various fabric types.

Embroidery also means longevity. Not only do designs look cool, but they are sturdy and resilient in the face of wear and tear. Machine embroidery creates durable stitching that doesn’t wash out or lose color over time.

We\u2019ll start by going over some of the general topics related to machine embroidery, which you\u2019ll find useful whether you\u2019re an experienced or a rookie apparel store owner, and then we\u2019ll show the entire process of how this hat was made.\n\nThe embroidery process starts when you upload your image to our services, and then we digitize it. After digitization, we have a stitch program that makes it possible for your design to be embroidered on our machines. Then the process can start kind of easy. We just take the blank product, put it in the machine, and start the embroidery process.\n\nPrintful digitizes designs on their own because we’re limited not only to the thread counts but also to the machines we’re using. But it\u2019s not bad for the customer. It\u2019s good for the customer because what we\u2019re doing, we\u2019re making a more precise stitching program for the needs of our machinery and especially for our blanks that we\u2019re using.\n\nIn comparison to regular printing where you\u2019re just applying a layer of ink, and it\u2019s literally happening in seconds. In the embroidery process, you need to apply the stitches. So the process takes much, much longer. It could take up to minutes.\n\nAs a result, you get a product that lasts longer. The threads that we\u2019re using are already colored. We also need to mention that the embroidery process is really environmentally friendly because we\u2019re not using any chemicals for that process. It\u2019s just embroidery. That\u2019s it.\n\nIn embroidery, the quality consists of two things. The first thing is what you see, the front side of embroidery. You want it to be sharp, beautiful, without any stitches in the wrong direction. But the second thing that we need to see is what\u2019s happening on the backside.\nBecause for some products, especially for light materials, we also need to add a backing material. So the blank that we\u2019re stitching on doesn\u2019t shrink. And also, of course, excess of the threads that we\u2019re cutting off. So that the backside looks really beautiful and flat.\n______\n#printful #printondemand #askprintful”,”thumbnailUrl”:”https:\/\/\/vi\/I0pllGH1rOc\/sddefault.jpg”,”uploadDate”:”2022-04-07T16:00:30Z”,”contentUrl”:”https:\/\/\/I0pllGH1rOc”}]}

Meet me at our spot: trendy geography-themed embroidery

Wanderlust: countries, cities, locations

Give your customers the option to choose how they want to represent their favorite site through embroidery. It’s a fun and simple design option to embroider on apparel that travelers and locals will both love.

Emblems and flags of countries, parks, or towns

Offer products with your customers’ special coordinates embroidered on them. This can be the place they met the love of their life, a place from their childhood, or a place they made great memories with friends. This idea will surely be appealing to tons of people.

A family crest or flag

It may not be a super common embroidery idea, but that’s what makes it original. Embroidered family crests or flags are a great way to show your pride or get ready for family events. If you create heritage designs, you can also offer to personalize a crest, a sign, or a flag for your customers. 

These embroidery designs will look great on apparel and home & living products. Explore your options!

Birth dates and name initials

For a more personal approach, you can offer to embroider birth years, months, or days (especially popular in Roman numerals) as well as names or initials. This is a great embroidery idea not only for your customers’ family members but also for friends and coworkers. 

Such embroidery art also works well on home & living products, but don’t limit yourself to just a few items. Experiment with all the different embroidery products we offer.

Zodiac signs

This is the perfect embroidery idea for astrology lovers. It’s great for embroidery patches, but hats, apparel, bags, and home & living products are all fitting for embroidering zodiac signs. Since zodiac signs have designated attributes like colors, flowers, and specific stones, you don’t have to make complicated art. Choose one or two elements for a creative pattern and you’re good to go.

My best friend: embroidery patterns with pets

Similar to family, people have a soft spot for pets, too. Offering your customers custom pet designs is another way to boost your business. 

There are different ways to go about it: you can design cute pet portraits, animal outlines, names, paw prints, etc. The Design Maker offers gorgeous animal-themed free embroidery patterns to choose from. Explore and create original embroidery designs that’ll get your customers talking.

Custom pet embroidery designs

Custom pet designs can include pet portraits, names, and custom paw prints or side silhouette outlines. This idea might require using photo editing software, but it’s worth it as pet-related designs are usually very loved. 

Pet portraits look best with large embroidery, while smaller designs are better for outlines and paw prints.

General pet embroidery art

Make general pet designs that anyone will adore. For example, you can design the most popular pets, paw designs, or quotes about pets that animal lovers will relate to. Don’t forget to create designs for many different pets, like birds, fish, turtles, snakes, spiders, and even farm animals like pigs, horses, cows, and sheep.

Call of the wild

As we’ve discussed, two of the many embroidery designs that are trendy are floral embellishments and animal art. That’s not surprising—nature-themed designs have tons of different possibilities and are appealing to a wide audience with diverse interests. 

Looking for ways to create nature designs for your online store? Printful offers a variety of free embroidery patterns you can choose from. Explore some embroidery ideas below.

If you like the idea of pet designs, consider creating other types of animal designs too. Explore your artistic side with cute embroidery designs that can be elaborate or simple for any animals imaginable, including dinosaurs and mythical creatures like unicorns. 

Animal designs and patterns are popular for children but will also wonderfully complement different accessories and home & living items for all ages. 

Everything green: plants, herbs, trees

Not only are embroidered plant patterns and flower designs some of the hottest design trends this year but they can also easily be made evergreen. Think about crafting a niche that speaks to a wider audience that includes avid gardeners, nature lovers, and outdoor devotees.

You don’t have to limit yourself only to houseplants and trees—get your hands dirty designing unusual wildflowers, diverse herbs, and rare plants. Be creative!


Another great embroidery idea for beautiful clothing? The seasons. Elements and symbols that represent spring, summer, fall, and winter are timeless and relevant throughout the year. Seasonal designs also often fit with holiday themes and can be super cute gift ideas.

Create art with wildflowers that bloom in spring or the shining summer sun. Design colorful autumn leaves and the delicate snowflakes that fall in winter. The seasons are beautiful, and you can get creative with a variety of clipart and patterns to make your products stand out.

Celestial objects

This theme extends beyond planet Earth. Embroidered stars, planets, and moons on accessories and apparel can make an out-of-this-world clothing line that will complement a variety of styles. Make minimalistic and simple embroidery designs and patterns using only our clipart graphics or outlines of space objects, or add a personal touch by including text or designing your own artwork. 

You can also expand on this theme with inspirational astronaut designs or extraterrestrial beings like cute aliens that will bring joy to many space enthusiasts. 

Nautical themes

Dive into the timeless appeal of the sea with nautical-themed embroidery ideas. Simple anchors, sailboats, waves, or lighthouses—these designs are evergreen and easily adaptable for your vacation clothes and accessories.

Whether stitched onto a casual sweatshirt, blanket, or beach tote, nautical embroidery adds a classic yet fresh touch to any item. Embrace the simplicity of line art or explore colorful, detailed patterns to bring a personal touch to your next embroidery project. 

Speak up: words that matter

Words are powerful. You can crack a joke, tell an impactful story, or confess your love to someone special by using just a few words. Mix up your product offering by creating embroidery patterns and designs with different text on all sorts of items. 

Plus, it’s super easy—even design beginners shouldn’t have a problem making creative embroidery art with text.

Motivational quotes

People need encouragement every day. Whether it’s just positive vibes that encourage you to smile no matter what or a bold statement that keeps you moving forward, words have the ability to uplift and motivate.

Write your own words of encouragement or choose from free embroidery patterns in the Design Maker.

Book-inspired references

So many stories are loved by millions worldwide, and many old stories are still told today. Use books available in the public domain as inspiration to design relatable quotes. For example, on January 1, 2022, A. A. Milne’s original Winnie-the-Pooh stories entered the public domain. Take advantage of these lovable characters’ words to offer extra-special designs for your customers.

Copyrights for books differ from country to country, so do your research before using any references to your favorite stories.

Original sayings

Do your friends think you give the best advice? Are you always coming up with hilarious one-liners? Consider creating your own original quips, sayings, or punch lines. You can design a variety of cool and creative quotes, or focus on puns and jokes if that’s your forte. 

Don’t hesitate to share your talent with the world. If you’ve got a way with words, the outcome will be awesome, so trust the process.

In perfect shape

If you’re into beautiful minimalistic patterns, consider embroidering abstract forms. Lines, shapes, and outlines of different objects are easy to embroider and get a great result. It can be totally symmetrical or more scattered—there’s no limit to your creativity. 

These designs are easy to make into patterns and don’t have to mean complicated artistry. Check for inspiration around you: different sites and surroundings are fantastic for exploring embroidery pattern ideas. 

Line art

You can turn photos into line art and make beautiful patterns with lines alone. You can also explore other ideas and make impressive outlines of different objects or people that become much more than just a simple design. One line can do wonders, you just need to let your imagination flow.


Circles, cubes, triangles, pentagons, and more. Geometric shapes and creative forms can make cute embroidery designs, especially if you think outside the box (pun intended). Combine different shapes to design objects, people, animals, or anything really.

Overlapping, barely touching, or merged—the fabric is a place for your creativity to run wild. Choose from a variety of shapes in the Design Maker to help you in the process. Even beginners can nail beautiful embroidery patterns made from shapes.

In the name of love: supporting a cause or a loved one

Today more than ever, support for different communities and groups is vital. One way to show your appreciation for others is with custom embroidered products that champion important causes.

Whether you’re a part of a community or want to support loved ones, you can make gorgeous patterns for different causes that are important to you.

The LGBTQ+ community

Embroidered rainbows, flags, quotes, and other colorful, inspirational elements work nicely on all sorts of embroidery products. You can embroider not only globally recognized symbols but also design your own for an edgy twist. 

Show your support to the community, whether you’re a part of it or just an ally, by offering your customers products embroidered with LGBTQ+ art and original patterns.

Apparel made with the idea to raise awareness about various diseases, syndromes, and other health issues is growing in popularity globally. Create your art and fun, informative patterns to raise awareness about important health issues. 

Educating people on existing illnesses and rare diseases will leave a positive impact on society. Show your love and support!


Embroidery is fantastic for designs that promote sustainability. You can embroider various motifs related to a sustainable lifestyle, like the recycling symbol, a green leaf, and slogans about the planet and our beautiful Earth. These simple embroidery ideas can be meaningful and visually appealing, perfect for eco-friendly brands and products.

Do what you love, love what you do

Running, cycling, skating, and working out at the gym are some of the most popular activities people do to feel good and stay healthy. Design activity-themed art that people can relate to or offer customized art for teams. 


Whether you play an instrument or just enjoy listening to music, designing simple and creative music-themed art will speak to many. Make musical notes, lines, or even lyrics (but remember to check for copyrights if you want to use an artists’ lyrics). It’s a great way to connect with music lovers!

Board games

Bring fun into your life with embroidery that features dice, chess pieces, playing card suits (hearts, diamonds, clubs, spades), board game motifs, or related quotes. These designs can add a playful touch to apparel, making them perfect for game enthusiasts and teams. Embroidered accessories, like tote bags and blankets, also make for thematic decor in game rooms.


Cooking can be a hobby, a way to relax, or a time to spend with family and friends. Embroidering fruits, veggies, desserts, and other delicious foods can be a fun and simple way to sell custom apparel and home & living items, especially aprons.

How can you make the most of embroidery?

To make your products even more awesome, you can create embroidered apparel with printed labels, just like you see here.\n\nYou might have noticed that not all stitching looks the same. And that\u2019s exactly right because we work with different types of embroidery stitching. \n\nFlat and 3D puff embroidery\n\nWith flat embroidery, stitches are embroidered flat on the surface, just like in these examples. This works great for smaller, more detailed designs and solid shapes. This type of stitching looks smooth and is very durable, making the product look amazing even after countless times of wearing and washing.\n\n3D puff embroidery means that the embroidery is raised. Used mostly for big shapes, just like in these examples. If you\u2019re not a fan of intricate, detailed designs, this will be the perfect technique for you to make a statement with your design. Keep in mind that 3D puff embroidery is only available for hats.\n\nStandard embroidery limitations\n\nThe main thing to remember is that standard embroidery is not printing, so gradients, drop shadows, distressed textures, and shading are not possible, you can only use solid colors and shapes in your designs. This means you can\u2019t use photographic imagery for your embroidery designs and you’re limited to a 6-thread color limit per design.\n\nHow to create an embroidery design\n\nYou can create a design with the tools available in our Design Maker, or you can upload your own file made on any other design software. Let\u2019s take a look at how you can create your own embroidered product using only Printful\u2019s Design Maker.\n\nCreate an embroidery design with the Design Maker\n\nThe Design Maker is packed with design tools, and you can choose from a huge collection of clipart, quick designs, and text.\n\nYou also have the option to upload your own design files to the Design Maker.\n\nUploading your own designs to the Design Maker\n\nWhen creating your own design file, keep in mind that there are certain file guidelines you need to follow. If your design doesn\u2019t meet the requirements, it might not embroider the way you\u2019ve envisioned. To see the file guidelines, click here, then click on the Print file templates tab to download the file guidelines for the necessary design placement.\nYou can also switch up thread colors for your design, if you want to dothat.If the file you\u2019ve uploaded doesn\u2019t meet the minimum size requirements, you\u2019ll see a warning here. Another thing to look out for is the embroidery area. If a part of your design exceeds the embroidery area, it won\u2019t be embroidered.\n\nHow to create 3D puff embroidery\n\nThe 3D puff embroidery option is only available for hats, so I\u2019m picking this bucket hat from our product catalog. One more thing to keep in mind is that if you want to use this embroidery type, you should upload your own custom design.\n\nWhat is digitization?\n\nWhen it comes to embroidery, all files need to be digitized to a format the embroidery machines support. Each embroidery type requires a separate digitized file. There is a one-time fee for each new design, and the fee depends on the type and placement of the design. \n\nIt\u2019s important to note that, when you add new elements to an already digitized file, it\u2019s a new design that has to be digitized again.\n\n#printful #printondemand #embroideryforbeginners”,”thumbnailUrl”:”https:\/\/\/vi\/OIE2cjfPJGs\/sddefault.jpg”,”uploadDate”:”2023-08-09T12:53:46Z”,”contentUrl”:”https:\/\/\/OIE2cjfPJGs”}]}

Ensure the best results for embroidered patterns

Even though embroidery offers many possibilities to expand your product range, there are a few rules to note. 

When creating embroidery designs at Printful, you can choose from 15 thread colors and use up to 6 thread colors per design. 

It’s hard and sometimes impossible to embroider designs created for print. Instead, you can recreate your print art into embroidery patterns and make new designs that fit your store’s vibe. 

Remember that embroidery doesn’t support gradients, tiny text, thin lines, and other very detailed designs. Watch this video on how to follow Printful’s embroidery file guidelines and be successful when creating embroidery art from the first time you do it: 



Indulge in the creative process

Now that we’ve covered the benefits of embroidery, looked through plenty of creative embroidery ideas, learned about embroidery products, and reviewed the guidelines to follow when creating embroidery patterns, you’re ready to turn your ideas into reality, thread by thread. 

For your next embroidery project, deciding what you like and thinking about what you’d love to see embroidered on various products is important. Be open, explore different stitch types, try new art, experiment with colors, and combine patterns.

Think outside the box. The fabric is your canvas, and the thread is your pen!
