The Embroidered Personalisation Process of Baby Products Explained

The Embroidered Personalisation Process of Baby Products Explained

Embroidering baby products is just one of the personalisation methods open to providers like Baby Box UK. But what is involved exactly? We explore this topic in our latest blog post, which defines and explains the embroidering process in personalising baby products.

What is embroidery?

To explain what embroidery is, we referred to, who define embroidery as:


the art of working raised and ornamental designs in threads of silk, cotton, gold, silver, or other material, upon any woven fabric, leather, paper, etc., with a needle.


Although artistic, embroidery is regarded as a craft rather than an art. Embroidery adds detail to an existing object through a needle and thread and is not the subject itself, i.e., the embroidery adds value to the existing product.

Embroidery can be traced back to 30,000 BC! Archaeological finds have discovered the fossilised remains of embroidered clothing, boots, and hats. (Source: Fibre 2 Fashion).

What is personalisation of baby products?

Personalisation is defined by as:

"a. To render personal rather than impersonal or purely professional
b. To make or alter so as to meet individual needs, inclinations, or specifications
c. To have printed, engraved, or monogrammed with one's name or initials."

Buying a personalised gift is a great way to turn a standard gift into a highly thoughtful and memorable gift, which could be kept as a keepsake. For example, if you bought a baby dressing gown and then added personalisation (as in the image below), you all of a sudden have a much more personal gift.

Babies will love presents such as comfort blankets. These can often last many years and an embroidered name is highly personal and helps the baby to develop familiarity with their name from an early age.

Embroidered personalisation

So, joining the two definitions together to create “embroidered personalisation”, at Baby Box you will receive:

Enhancement of baby clothing and related products through alteration at the surface of the material by artistic needlework with raised stitching personalised to the customer’s requirements”.

We believe embroidery is a fantastic way of personalising products. It is a cost-effective, highly stylish, very professional, quickly delivered and is a great way of enhancing the core product purchased (e.g., blanket, vest, or pyjamas, etc.)
