Why Medical Professionals Embroider Their Scrubs

If you’re a medical professional, being in uniformed scrubs is an essential part of your everyday. Your workplace may have a strict dress code policy, like mandating a specific scrubs color or restricting any patterns on your scrubs, which can ultimately limit how you can express your professional style.

Accessorizing your scrubs with custom embroidery is the perfect solution to adding your own personal touch and expressing your individuality. Many medical professionals choose to embroider their scrubs because it’s easier for patients and colleagues to identify them. Others want to enhance their professional look in a simple but stylish way.  No matter the reason, embroidered scrubs are a great way to stand out from the crowd.

Customizing Your Embroidery

When embroidering your medical scrubs, you can choose your thread color, placement, and font style preference. 


We currently offer blue, white, and black thread. Depending on the color of your scrubs, you can choose the thread that best compliments your professional attire.

Text Placement

You have the option to place your text either on the right or left of your scrubs top. Many medical professionals prefer embroidery above their chest pocket. 

Font Style

You can choose between block or script font for your embroidery. Block font is ideal if you are trying to achieve a more crisp look while script font is a more stylish approach. Ultimately, picking your font style is purely personal preference.

What to Include In Your Embroidery

Our embroidery feature gives you two lines of text with 28 special characters per line. Medical professionals usually include their name and credentials on the first line and department on the second line. You can also simply only embroider your name to add a simple but distinct touch to your scrubs.
