What Is Embroidery Digitizing?

Every time you see a shirt with an embroidered company logo or hat with an embroidered sports team emblem, that design was "digitized". Embroidery digitizing is the process of converting existing artwork like a company logo or team emblem into a stitch file that an embroidery machine can sew on a garment.

Before any design can be embroidered, it must be digitized. Digitizing is a complex process that is both art and science.

The digitizer also changes the type of stitches used in the design to best reproduce the artwork and match your specifications for the file.

Great digitizing is the foundation of great embroidery. We have the professional staff to help individuals, marketing companies, embroidery shops and design firms get high quality embroidery design files ready to be sewn on fabric. Our embroidery design files are compatible with nearly all of the popular commercial and home embroidery machines out there.

Can any file be digitized?

Yes and no. Any design can be digitized, however, embroidery places some limits on the appearance of a design that do not exist in print designs. Small letters, tiny details or color gradients can sometimes be difficult to reproduce in thread exactly. Because of this, we offer suggestions during the digitizing process so that you can give your customer the absolute best file that is as close as possible to their original artwork. We also recommend that you start with the highest quality artwork possible since hand drawn designs or fuzzy pictures often lead to problems during the digitizing process.
