    Is it relatively easy to remove logo embroidery and applique logos?

    I think it has a lot to do with the fabric. Cotton, in my experience, is pretty fragile. I've tried it before with a seam-ripper and fucked up a good shirt.

    Embroidery (especially machine embroidery) is pretty serious. If it's not very thick or elaborate, then you have a shot, but you have to go slow and be careful. Applique is probably going to be very difficult to get off. In either case, if you end up damaging it, you'll have to sew it up with a patch.

    This is not advisable. It will usually leave a patch more unsightly than the original logo.

    If you plan to do it, get a stitch ripper from a fabric store. I do a bit of sewing and I wouldn't suggest anything else. I've taken pockets off of clothing before and if you're careful, you won't scar things up that way. That said, embroidery is Serious Bizness. Mechanically done, it's done at a very high tension and so it may distort the fabric if you take it out. You might end up with a ghost image. If you're intent on doing it (which means that the clothing isn't too expensive or you'll toss it otherwise), then go very slowly and iron the area when you're done using steam.

    If you totally screw it up and don't want to toss it out, you can always do some DIY shirt modification with bleach or dyes and stuff.
