Embroidery is an added imprint method that does not require heat to cure or dry. When dealing with "man-made" fabrics, heat is a constant struggle with other imprint methods. With embroidery, there is no need to worry whether the inks cure, dry or adhere to the fabrics. Depending on the project and the materials, embroidery is one of the few imprint methods that can work with just about any garment.
Embroidery is known to be the most durable imprint method; it is why the cost to embroider an item can be a little more than other imprint methods.
Note: Any man made material can run the chance of bleeding through the fabrics.
