There are embroidery machines that can embroider individual patterns on panels of fabric and other machines that can embroidery a continuous pattern onto whole rolls of fabric. Embroidery cost are typically counted by stitches for individual pattern. If we work embroidery over the whole rolls of fabric, after we placed the markers within the fabric width, there will have spaces among patterns which will be cut out and cannot be used, if this cut off area consist of embroidery, that means this is wastage. Because the embroidery is expensive and you are paying by stitch, you certainly do not want the embroidery cut out and left as waste. As a manufacturer, we would want as little waste as possible.

An important fact to keep in mind is that when you embroidery on cut parts (panels), you will be using more labor which also has a cost. A factory will need to do careful calculations to determine which method of embroidery will actually provide a cost benefit. Timing of the order may be another consideration.

Placing the embroidery on panels may provide benefits other then cost. For example if you were producing sleep pants and using embroidery on panels, the factory can control to avoid the embroidery patterns to appear on the sewing seams and on waistband area, so the outlook can be better, sewing can be tidy and smooth, the gathering on the waistband will be more even.

If you have experience placing embroidery on cut panels and then sewing the garments to create an all over embroidery effect, please share your experience with us. Let us know the benefits and problems you may have faced.

This is a good information that you have shared. I have done loads of orders on the techniques you mentioned above.

To add on above:
Embroidery that is done on all over fabric can be done by two techniques i.e. computer and on shiffly machines. Yes when we do work on all over fabric then there is wastage at ends since the length and the width of the embroidery machine is limited. In this also there are two types of techniques .... one is multi head machine and single head machine. We can not have shiffly embroidery on multi head as it is not available.

For the wastage that you have mentioned above..... there is a particular formula to calculate cost in the same which can help us to reduce price. Also, we can reduce wastage by controlling embroidery panel length, we just have to set the machine.

Shiffly embroidery is less expensive than computer embroidery. many brands change their product from computer to shiffly to make it more cost effective. Price of the embroidery is based on the no. of stitches used. we can reduce the cost by manipulating no. of stitches without disturbing the overall look of the design and can improve cost.

Embroidery on particular panel can also be done, manually, on computer on shiffly as well. Each method has it its own risk as well.

Did you know that we use lock stitch to secure embroidery?
Also we can add tapes for scallop embroidery so that it does not tear apart. we also use backing for more neat and secure embroidery.

Embroidery pattern is decided on the type of garment that you have to finally make and can you make it more cost effective.....

I think i should end here coz i can go on n on on this topic................
