Embroidery Digitizing, Custom Embroidery Digitizing
Embroidery digitizing, is the art of using a
computer to convert artwork into data that is recognizable by an
embroidery machine so the machine knows how to stitch out the
design. One click on the computer does not automatically convert the
design. The artist redraws the design in such a way that the
embroidery machine knows what to do; from the size of the design, to
underlays, type of stitch, color changes, and the order in which
this all takes place. Very similar to an architectural blueprint
that tells the builder what to do.
Not all embroidery digitizing is created equal. It
takes years of experience to do quality digitizing. Anybody can
redraw a design, but will it look good, or stitch well on the item
you want embroidered?
Our embroidery digitizing team
consists of the some of the world's most talented artists with over
100 years of combined experience in machine embroidery digitizing.
However, we do not offer the lowest price, quickest turn around time or volume discounts.
Although we do not offer the assurances mentioned
above, the following embroidery digitizers do;

Many factors determine the cost of
embroidery digitizing, not just stitch count.
Complexity is the biggest factor. A large circle that is all fill
makes the stitch count very high, but the design is simple. A large
circle that has a complex design inside, but is not completely
filled has a lower stitch count, but is much more time consuming to
Not all designs or logos are
embroidery friendly because, more often than not, they were
originally designed for print. With print, letters can be much
smaller and colors can be incorporated into each other more fluidly
than with embroidery. Therefore, sometimes modifications must be
made to the size and /or layout of lettering, logo, or design to
achieve the best results (with your approval of course).
Here is an example of a logo that was not going to
be easy to digitize so, our art department created a similar logo that is much
more embroidery friendly.
Sometimes, the smallest text in a
design or logo will dictate the size that it can be embroidered.
The smallest text we can embroider with any legibility is about .25"
in height. Depending on the size, some designs, images or logos with
intricate detail will need to be reduced in complexity to attain
high quality embroidery as the end result.
If you don't have a logo we can design one for you that is created
specifically for the purpose of embroidery so, you can be assured
your logo is embroidery friendly. For more details about logo
design, please call 315 733 1992 to discuss.
