What is Digitizing when referred to Embroidery?

Simply explained, embroidery digitization is the process of transforming artwork into a digital file using a programme that enables embroidery machines to recognise the path of the needle. This procedure is not automated, and when done well, digitization is even regarded as an art form. Most embroidery machines have their own software that enables us to manage their operations while reading guidelines from a digitised file.

You must digitize your logo so that embroidery machines can read it before you can use it because they cannot read the same types of files that your computer can. From the prospective of a digitizer, that often entails turning a JPG or PNG file of a client’s company logo or artwork into an embroidered file. The type of embroidery machine you plan to use will decide the embroidery file type.

One of the crucial steps in this procedure is comprehending the design. The artwork’s size, complexity, and placement will all affect the digitizing procedure. Fabric vs. thread should be taken into consideration by effective digitizers (and technically, all digitizers if they are proficient). There may be some patterns where letting the fabric’s colour come through rather than putting down thread will look better. Additionally, it’s crucial to designate embroidered stitch types to particular regions while taking into account elements like the fabric type and the “push and pull” of the clothing. Each work should be handled differently and with attention because there are numerous factors and instructions that might influence the results of your stitching.

The artwork must next be examined by the digitizer to determine whether it needs to be modified for embroidery. The design must take its eventual size into account. Not every logo that was created for print medium, like a business card, will translate nicely to embroidered. Numerous designs require revision or simplification. Sometimes, all that is used is the design name and a small graphic. Some aspects, such as outlining, would need to be removed, and there could need to be some rearranging and enlarging of little text.
