What is Embroidery?Embroidery is a popular stitching technique for clothing. To create an embroidered t-shirt, your logo will be digitised on a computer before being applied onto the t-shirt by one of our automated embroidery machines. As always, a skilled machinist will be on hand to make sure your logo is precise, ultra- detailed and true to life.
What is Applique?
Applique is a traditional craft technique. A pre-cut piece of fabric is applied onto the t-shirt, and an embroidery machine stitches thread around the fabric for a popular, distressed finish. It’s used mostly to create text onto a garment and is popular for American letterman jacket style clothing

Which Should I Choose?If you want an ultra-detailed logo on your t-shirt, then you should choose embroidery. The embroidery technique can create more intricate designs than applique embroidery, so it's best to choose this if you want something smaller and more specific.
If you want to create text or a certain Americanised style of t-shirt, then applique will be a good choice. Plus, applique embroidery can help create completely unique items, as the design can be personalised and it’s the only stitching method of its kind that perfectly blends fabric with an embroidery finish.
At Banana Moon, the embroidery method you choose for your t-shirts will ultimately depend on your design requirements and the size of your order.
