Every major university is filled with Greek clothing – from Greek letter shirts to Greek sweatshirts to Greek handbags, there are letters of the Union and Brotherhood. Sewing Greek letters [aka decals or twill weaves] are by far the most popular form of letter clothing. There are so many choices for fraternity letters, it is helpful to know what the product is made and when buying your own sewing letters.

Sewing fraternity letters come in a variety of sizes, the most popular being 2 inches, 3 inches and 4 inches. The type of fraternity equipment that is usually selected will determine the size of the letters used. A closer fraternity T-shirt will not have the horizontal space of a unisex T-shirt, so smaller letters will be used. Or, for example, a tote bag that is less than 18" wide will require smaller letters, such as 2" or 3". In addition to the gear type, the position of the letter on the garment will also affect the size. The position of the left chest needs to be smaller than the center chest design. More fonts.

The stitched fraternity letters have a one-layer and two-layer design. One layer lacks the size of a double-layer design, but it does make the fraternity equipment look simple, which is attractive to some people. In most cases, the design is done with two layers of fabric. The background layer [back color] is usually a solid color or a metallic color, but a pattern can be used. The foreground layer [front color] is primarily visible and available in a variety of colors and patterns. The most popular items today are animal prints, stripes, dots and designer prints such as Vera Bradley.

This sewn Greek letter is cut from a variety of fabrics including polyester twill, metallic, cotton and cotton/polyester. Use laser, blade or water to cut letters. Laser cutting is superior because it reduces wear and creates a very clean cut.

Greek letters can be sewn with zigzag stitches or satin stitches [double satin]. The zigzag stitching looks just like it sounds and leaves some fabric edges. On the other hand, satin stitching creates a thick line border around the letters. Therefore, satin splicing is more expensive as time and number of stitches increase. Line colors are usually chosen to match the color of the stitched letter, but contrast colors, especially satin stitching, can be used. These extra colors create dimensions and details for women's sweatshirts or girls' association T-shirts.

The entire Greek garment production process is as follows:


1] The sewed Greek letters are cut from the fabric of your choice.


2] Greek sweatshirts, T-shirts, jackets or bags with a backing hoop and placed on the embroidery machine
