There are a lot of ways to express your creativity with garment decoration. You can use colors, words, and subjects to convey your personality. Your choice of decoration also impacts the overall look. If you opt for screen printing, you can achieve crisp, bold graphics on garments. If you go with embroidery you can get classic customization and personalized clothing. Sublimation is great for photo-realistic or high definition images. A major difference that manifests in these services is texture. Texture can be a big part of a custom garment. If you are looking to incorporate texture into your designs, you should consider applique.
Applique is a straight-forward way to decorate garments, but it can be quite effective. For just one example, imagine a varsity jacket and how important it looks with its various patches. It is a classic look that continues to be impressive in modern times. You too can achieve that effect with applique. There are two ways in which this fabric based decoration can be applied to a garment, with adhesive and heat or by stitching. This usually comes with an adhesive on the back that lets you use heat to stick it on.
Alternatively, the fabric based design can be embroidered onto a garment. Since the goal is texture, embroidery plus a large fabric design would be the ideal choice. It is sturdy and durable so the tackle twill will last a long time. Another benefit with using this method of decoration is that it can be cost effective for bigger designs. It could get rather expensive if you wanted a full back embroidered design on many custom pieces. to work around that problem, you can have large fabric based design that is stitched onto a garment for fractions of the cost.
