Unlike screen printing, which is all about graphics, embroidery is all about stitches. Embroidery relies on a specific type of embroidery machine, dedicated embroidery software and an experienced embroidery digitizer to read a digital stitch file (embroidery digitizing) and tell it how and where to thread your logo and design onto fabric. This process is called digitizing and is considered an art form if done correctly. Embroidery digitizing transforms any graphical shape into beautiful stitches that are easily translated by embroidery machines to become your embroidered logo.
Why is embroidery digitizing software so expensive?
The complexities of a design will have an impact on how well it will digitize. Some simple designs will be quick and easy for an experienced digitizer but designs with fine detail, small text, multiple colors and color gradations require time and patience to do properly. Supreme Embroidery Digitizing Services in Chicago must consider how the stitches he sees in his software will look when they are sewn on fabric and also take into account the “push and pull” of an embroidery machine which can cause some stitches to shift.
There are a number of different stitch types that can be used to achieve a wide range of effects in embroidery. Some of the most popular include satin stitch, runaway stitch and fill. Satin is a dense stitch that creates a rich, glossy finish while runaway stitch is a more sparse, matte stitch. Puff embroidery is an elegant, subtle effect that adds texture to a design and works great with block style lettering.
