    Other texture maps like roughness, bump/normal, etc. have to be made and/or tuned for making the logo look real~  Suggest you take a look at this product: https://www.daz3d.com/ptf-stick-it-decals which is typical with a series of texture maps to make a good visual effect on the logo~ And you may use a decal node as well~

    It works all fine for me. You have to tweak the parameters accordingly~  But if you do wanna embed your logos on garment's texture map, just check some similar products to see how the PA used the tex. maps and set up params. on their surfaces ~

    find the surface you want to add an image to click browse which opens the folder it's in. 
    right click and open the image in the folder with your art program then copy the image, paste it in place which will give you a layer image you'll probably have to save as a tif (but will make sure you never screw up the original which is probably a jpg or png) 
    then open your art of choice it will open in another window ... select the part you want. 
    Go the original art work .. paste it in... it will be a new layer above the duplicate layer
    resize adjust color etc 
    and then save as a jpg .. which will flatten your top layers and  output them as a jpg
    you can save the big pile as a tiff with the same name as the original jpg or just add work or such into the title of it.

    go back to the open daz folder ...your jpg with the art should be there ... click on it and then use the open and the modified material is on the base layer and should look like the old image just with the logo added

    If you have brought your updated texture into Daz and it is rendering washed-out, then there may be other properties on the shader like Diffuse Overlay, or Top Coat etc that are overlaying the image and muting its effect.  Check in Surfaces for likely culprit.

    You can play with the strengths of those properties.

    As always, screenshots help (i.e., screenshot of your surfaces tab)

    If you exclude all other factors like harsh lighting, environment and tone mapping settings...etc, then it usually depends on the surface shader you're using.  If you're using a Iray Uber surface, try loading the Base Color and Translucency Color with the same texture.  You can also load a color test pattern as your texture to see if you're getting the correct colors  (e.g. a texture map of solid RGB colors).  If red doesn't look like red, and green doesn't look like green, etc... then I would say there's a problem with your surface properties.

    Gimp or Photoshop (Express?) is one way to edit textures, but if you're going to be doing more texture editing (for 3D models) then you may also want to look into Substance Painter; you don't have to get a subscription but can simply buy a perpetual license through Steam.

    IMO nothing comes close to texturing 3D models than Substance Painter.

    Im not sure they needed handholding on how to layer two images together in an image editor. (Can do this inside Daz anyway with LIE)

    the OP implied they already did all the 2d editing correctly as they didnt report logo in wrong position etc.  Issue was probably their shader set up, as OP had reported the edited logo looking "washed out". Cannot know for sure as they did not post screenshot.

    I was guessing they just hadn't changed the base layer some how. I've done dozens and all just modifing the base layer. 
    One question they have to answer is does the logo looked washed out in ps if it looks good their should look good on model.
