Nailing the perfect embroidery designs is largely down to making sure that you have the right embroidery machine in place. If you don’t, you could end up with a design that you’re not happy with. And if you’re relying on the perfect design to show off your company’s branding, not only is it a costly mistake to fix, a bad design could really damage your reputation.
So, to make sure that you get the right results every time, you need the right machine. In this post, we’ll show you the capabilities of the ever-reliable Happy Japan product range. Well-known for their reliability, the machines are used throughout a wide range of industries for an array of different businesses.
Embroidery patches have been popular for many years and are still vastly used in society today. They have a wide variety of uses, including:
- People designing their own custom badges to enhance their garments.
- Band merchandise.
- Businesses rolling out new branded workwear.
And these aren’t the only uses too.
But why would somebody use an embroidery patch instead of direct embroidery? Firstly, it’s a cheaper option – especially if somebody is only buying one badge. Secondly, they’re more versatile and aren’t limited to one garment once you’ve bought the badge. They can be attached to clothing and accessories such as bags, shoes and towels.
As we mentioned, one of the most popular ways that embroidery patches are used is for personalising garments. This is a way for people to express themselves and show off their interests, or cool designs. A lot of the time people choose to showcase their favourite bands on their custom patches.
Happy Japan machines are capable of producing intricate embroidery work – as shown on the lion on the crest above. So, if you have designs that require a little more attention to detail with some finicky parts, that’s not a problem.
One of the hottest embroidery designs at the minute is people personalising their garments and accessories with their initials. People are putting their initials on all sorts but bags are a very popular choice for initial embroidery, take Mulberry for example.
Mulberry is well renowned for being a classy, prestigious brand – and they wouldn’t want to cheapen the brand with tacky personalisation. That’s why they chose a machine that guarantees top-quality results every time with.
You’ll usually find direct embroidery designs on clothing for schoolwear and branded workwear. There’s a reason why these two industries use this method so often – the regal finish and image that embroidery portrays shines your brand in a good light and gives an impression of a well-established business or school.
Branded workwear and school uniforms serve the same purposes. A set uniform for all employees or students drives home a sense of togetherness. This sense of empowerment shows that workers and pupils are all on the same level and are all working hard to achieve the same goals and objectives.
As you can see from the image above, Happy Japan machines are capable of producing great results for your branded workwear. After all, you don’t want your staff working in poor quality uniforms, do you? Certainly not. This can give off the wrong impression of your brand as a whole – if you can’t make sure that your own uniform is the best quality, then will that reflect in your actual work?
For schools, they have a rich history that they’re proud of. Part of the school’s identity is its branded colours and uniform. If a uniform is produced with shoddy stitching and poor branding, it cheapens the heritage of the school. And if you’re not producing quality uniforms, the chances are that the school will seek a new supplier or parents of the pupil will start to look elsewhere than your school uniform shop.
Furniture is another way that people like to express their creativity. Everybody wants to put their own touch on their house to make it feel homely. So, what better way to do that than to personalise your products to make them truly unique? As Happy Japan machines are capable of working on various types of fabrics, you can personalise your furniture in various ways.
The image above shows that you can personalise your furniture with almost anything. The intricacies of the reigns on the horse and the detail on the face are an example that detail is no problem when working on a Happy Japan machine.
Furniture doesn’t just have to be for your home, as the example above showed. Personalised embroidery designs buffets and chairs could be perfect to add to any cafe, tea room or vintage shop. Of course, you could put them in any shop, as long as they’re on brand and go with the style that you’re promoting throughout.
Obviously, furniture comes in all different shapes, styles and fabric. So, you need to make sure that you choose an embroidery machine that is capable of carrying out designs on a variety of different materials.
