When ordering Greek letters from other places, you'll get the option to pick between satin stitching and standard stitching (also called cross or zigzag stitching).
Amethyst Jackets exclusively uses satin stitch for their appliques. So what's the difference?
Satin Stitch vs. Standard Stitch: What's the Difference?
- Satin stitch is a dense, tightly-packed embroidery technique that creates a smooth, solid surface.
- Satin stitch involves closely spaced parallel stitches that cover the entire applique area, giving it a sleek, polished appearance.
- Satin stitch is known for its durability and ability to withstand wear and tear, making it a top choice for long-lasting designs.
- Standard stitch, on the other hand, uses more spaced-out stitches, resulting in a textured, open appearance.
- While it can be suitable for certain designs, standard stitch may not provide the same level of coverage and durability as satin stitch.
Why Does Amethyst Jackets Only Offer Satin Stitching?
1. Satin Stitches Hold Up Longer.
Satin stitch is known for its longevity. The closely-packed stitches ensure that the design remains intact, even after repeated washes and everyday wear. This is crucial for Greek line jackets that are meant to be worn proudly for years to come.
2. Satin Stitching Looks Better.
Satin stitch creates a smooth, shiny surface that enhances the overall look of the applique. It adds a touch of elegance and sophistication to the design, making it perfect for Greek life symbols and chapter logos.
At Amethyst Jackets, we believe durable and beautiful embroidery is the minimum standard! These qualities make satin stitching the only option for a custom line jacket.
