This is meant to be a trick question, because the easiest way to create award winning decoration is to start with an award winning decorator! In our July newsletter I reference the '70's Life cereal commercial where siblings feed brother Mikey a bowl of the new box of Life cereal first...to test it! To their surprise he liked it and Mikey hates everything!
My analogy is that while Keith does not hate everything, he also tends not to be interested in the new apparel choices when our rep's come by the office. I usually buy him some new branded apparel, but rarely get feedback till the Vantage line- he loves it! What I love besides the styles in the line is the decoration options!
Click the process links for an added bonus to see how these decoration processes are applied to apparel- you'd be surprised how many of them are applied.
Of course Vantage offers award winning traditional favorites like embroidery- a PPAI award winner for 22 consecutive years!

Laser Applique- how is it done?
Laser applique decoration is an easy and visually exciting way to increase the value of branded apparel. Take a look through our library of logos embellished with full-chest applique in a variety of fabrics, reverse applique technique, or patch size designs.
Laser Appliqué Logos
For a high-impact branding option, let us interpret your logo using laser applique decoration. The applique fabric, which can be used in single or multiple layers, adds visual interest and can reduce stitch counts in full-size designs and large fill areas.
Fashion forward tech patchThis technique produces an upscale branding option for our jackets and other performance garments. Tech patches flex with the garment and can be designed in a variety of simple shapes. Logos will have a tonal mark on the patch.
Sequin Embroidery- how is it done?
Embroidery that sparkles
This decoration technique uses sequins to create attractive logo designs. Once a layout is complete, it is digitized in a sequin dot format. The design is then created by embroidering sequins directly onto the garment. Check out a behind-the-scenes look of a sequin logo coming to life.
