Everything You Need to Know about Screenprinting, Embroidery, and Thermoseal

Behind the Scenes: Screenprinting, Embroidery, & thermoseal

JDA brings your brand to life with custom in-house decoration including screenprinting, embroidery and thermoseal. So how do you decide which decoration method is best for your next project? Check out our guide to in-house decoration below, and enjoy a sneak peek behind the scenes from our production facility in Pelham, AL.


Screenprinting offers an affordable option for bulk orders of t-shirts, hoodies, or canvas items. Pricing is based on the quantity ordered, the number of colors in your logo (and the number of locations printed), which makes it a great solution for logos with three colors or less.

Burning the screen and setting up the machine can take as little as 15 minutes for a 1-color imprint with 5-10 additional minutes for each color added.

Embroidery is best used for higher-end garments like polos and jackets, and items that cannot handle high heat. We also use embroidery for most order-on-demand items on our corporate web stores.

You can order smaller quantities with embroidery, and pricing is based on the quantity ordered, the number of stitches in your logo and the number of locations to be embroidered.

Thermoseal works well for small, full-color designs and for fabrics that don’t work well for screenprinting or embroidery. Pricing is based on the art size, and competitive pricing is available at low quantities.

Our production facility houses two thermoseal machines, one for clothing and one for hats. The one for clothing is flat and functions like an oversized industrial iron. The hat machine is curved on the front, which makes it easy to apply heat seal patches without creating any wrinkles.

We use the hat thermo machine to add heat-sealed patches to caps; the flat machine we use for applying vinyl transfers to most flat items. We can do all types of patches including embroidered, leather, PVC, and more.
