E-Zee Backing Guide

E-Zee Selection Guide

Unsure about which backing or topping to use on your latest project? --
E-Zee can simplify the decision -- saving you time and money!


Below is a guide to help you choose the correct E-Zee Backing and Topping for your embroidery. The most important factor in choosing a stabilizer is the type of fabric that is being embroidered on. Use the chart below to find the recommended backing for your garment type.

Other factors to consider

Stitch length – designs with short stitch lengths may require a heavier backing.
Density of stitches – Denser designs benefit from using a heavier backing.
Size of the embroidered design – Use heavier backing for large designs.
Color of the material – Choose a black backing when embroidering on darker garments when the back side of embroidery may be visible at times.
