Coloreel—the embroidery industry leader

Coloreel’s Instant Thread Coloring Unit is the first machine of its kind to enter the embroidery industry in almost 30 years.

This new unit dyes a single thread and then passes it to the embroidery machine. The coloring happens without any breaks or needle head switching.

This technique produces top-of-the-line color transition effects while the embroidery backing remains neat and clutter-free.

Embroidery and sustainability—a match

By coloring the thread during production, we eliminate water consumption. This is due to the instant color application while embroidering, as no water is used to predye threads.

Unlimited color embroidery mainly uses 100% recycled polyester thread from recycled post-consumer PET bottles. Learn more about Coloreel’s sustainability practices.

Disclaimer: For certain design areas with single, solid colors (for example, a large black area), we use the regular threads of standard embroidery instead. This adjustment allows us to create thinner and less stiff embroideries, while maintaining the superior quality Printful is known for.

How digitization works

All files need to be digitized to a format embroidery machines support. Each embroidery design requires a separate digitized file. This is a one-time fee that costs up to $6.50 per design, depending on the type and placement of the design. 

To get your graphics ready for embroidery, upload your design and our specialists will change it into a format the embroidery machines recognize. 

Afterward, we’ll embroider the design using the Coloreel technology. Make sure to follow our unlimited color embroidery design guidelines to get your desired result.
