Backing Basics: A New Series

Backing Basics: A New Series

Those of you who’ve read this blog for a while may know that I’m quite fond of doing series of posts.  Some topics are just too big to cover in one post, and doing a series allows for more in depth discussion and examination of a particular product or issue.  A series is also a great way to lead people through a particular topic in step 1, step 2, step 3 kind of a way.  A blog series can be a great educational tool.

One of the products that I’ve always thought would be perfect for a blog series is our machine embroidery backing.   The backing you choose can make such a difference in the success or failure of your embroidery, but there are so many different types of backing from which to make your choice.  How do you know which machine embroidery backing or topping is right for your job?  How do you know which one you should use?

This is where we come in.  Among other things, this blog is an educational tool for our customers.  Part of what we do here is help you make informed decisions about the products we sell.  Choosing the right machine embroidery backing can have a big impact on the look of your finished product and the ease of getting the product to that finished state.      It’s a choice that shouldn’t be left to chance and which requires an understanding of backing types, how backing can impact a finished design, and what sorts of backing or topping work best for various designs.   Over the coming weeks, our Backing Basics series will lead you through the all these subjects and more as we conduct an in depth discussion of machine embroidery backing.

Backing Basics will cover a wide variety of machine embroidery backing related topics including:

  • Choosing the right backing for your job and garment
  • The different types of backing
  • Why quality matters when it comes to backing
  • Environmentally friendly backing
  • Backing weight
  • Specialty backing

We are also open to answering any questions about backing that our readers may have.  If you have a backing related issue or question, please leave it in the comments here on the blog or contact us with your question.
