Recently I've came up with a few design ideas that would look great with some embroidery, but I'm not sure if placing embroidery over screen print is a good idea. Does anyone know if the embroidery or print would be damaged in this case?:confused:

i works fine i've had screen print/transfer/as well as embossed garmerts accented with embrodery as well as rhinestones or even hand painted embellishment it all layers well on each other

don't forget screen printed designs are just ink placed on top of fabric which is a flexible substrate you can stich thru it with ut and problems
puff inks may be a little problem but i can can worked around at a slower speed.

Thanks for the quick response. I feel much better knowing that I don't have to scrap my designs.

works fine. I've done many prints in the past with embroidery running over a plastisol print. The only issue i ran into was when embroidering over a thick white print on a black shirt, every where the needle pierced the print you had minor cracking and marks from the... err needle eye loop thing.. the foot? i forget what it's called, been several years since i touched embroidery :D
the trick with embroidering over a print is to minimize the ink deposit. water base works great but plastisol works just as well as long as you don't need a thick print. most people want soft hand now so it shouldn't be an issue.

How about screening over embroidering, I have a customer that wants me to put a digital media print over embroidered names on scrubs. The garment are dry cleaned nightly. I do not know what substrate to use for the print job. any info would help.
