  6. Common Digitizing Mistakes In the embroidery industry their are thousands of machine embroidery digitizers trying to make a living , and digitizing in house, in this blog we are going to take a look at some of the common mistakes digitizers make when making embroidery designs. Issues from a poorly digitized design could be unnecessary trims, unnecessary jumps, too many color changes and not enough compensation, to dense, and the list goes on. 1. Lack of Planning, or Lack of Pathing This is usually seen on new embroidery digitizers as they may be able to draw the embroidery design and on screen it looks okay, but when they so it out your machine your embroidery machine jumps unnecessary and their are too many trims.. Making the sew out slower than it needs be. You will also likely to have simulated embroidery thread breaks caused by lack of lock stitches and or trimming on small letters. 2. No Underlay or wrong style for application This is one of the hardest things to learn is which underlay works best for the stitch types, the wrong underlay or no underlay can distort the design and cause a night mare while embroidering it, specially on different fabric types. 3. Improper compensation In embroidery this is one thing everyone should have an understanding, you need to know how much is enough vs too much or too little, a poorly digitzed embroidery design will either have underlay sticking out as the compensation was not right for the design, other issues is there is too much underlay and the embroidery designs is distorting. Below is a chart to gauge one aspect of the compensation factor, Elastisity. The other factors include, type of backing, type of underlay and design characteristics. 4. Improper Density This is another give away of a new digitizer, the design is bullet proof, means that the density is too, high often when using layers of embroidery thread you can reduce the density by 1/3 to compensate for the different layers, too little density and the underlay or garment will show through. The other factor is the fabric , towels need underlay to hold the nap down and bit more density than the standard to prevent the gaps where strands can poke through. 5. Stitch Direction This is one issue that is up to the designer, but I do not like flat embroidery designs where the fill type is the same through out the embroidery design, stitch angle gives the embroidery design character, and often will make the embroidery design look more attractive than all the stitches going the same way. In the design below the stitches in the wings are going horizontal and the body is going vertical. 6. No Lock Stitches Generally putting lock stitches can be optional on some materials however some will require it to make sure it doesn't unravel, I like it on jackets, knits and jersey material and especially on sports apparel or spandex. Having lock stitches will help prevent the stitches from unraveling. 7. Fill Types A problem with many digitizers they do not know how the fill types affect the embroidery design, years ago Tajima Pulse used to provide a book with a pattern of the different types of fills, this would give you a visual que on what the end result would look like, too many digitizers use the same old patterns for all their embroidery designs. I recommend choosing the fill type suited to the design. In the above design you can see a programmed fill used to add distinctive tire tracks, this is used in combination with fill to give it some depth and make it look realistic. 8 Stitch Lengths This can impact underlay when it sticks out from the sides of letters, or can be a cause to higher densities, and or coverage. Small letters you see this a lot, if a letter is 4 mm high and the stitch length is defaulted to .12" (3 mm) than the default settings is not going to work. .05" will drop the stitch length to 1.2 mm this will allow the underlay to conform to the smaller text sizes, not compensating for this the underlay will not cover the design, stick out or cause other distortion issues. 9. Wrong stitch type for width This is something you should as a embroidery digitizer have an idea, you will see issue like a satin stitch being too large causing loopy stitches, unnecessary trims, gaps in the design, or too dense for the area. We did cover some of these terms in the blog for Stitch types, but general Fills .04" to Infinite, Satin 03" to 40" Steils 03" to .20" runs stitches do not have a limitation except its one stitch after another except on program fills and they should be used like a fill. But you can adjust them to reduce the size. 10 Wrong application for design This is one that people often get wrong, ie a left chest design doesn't always work for caps as it pushes the design or distorts the machine embroidery design on the hat, hats generally require a embroidery design to sew out from the center to the left and center to the right to push in equal directions, other comparisons you would not want a embroidery design designed for knit to be used on nylon as you often see the design pucker.

  7. The iron man embroidery design I purchased did not have a color chart can you please email me one as soon as possible?
  8. Some information about embroidery threads, documentation, color chart, characteristics
  9. A while back someone posted that 40 weight thread is coincidentally .40 mm thick. I took this to be obviously incorrect. Not only is the measurement misleading the conclusion was arrived by laying a two pieces of 40 weight thread on a ruler and wa-la there you have it! The reason I questioned this other than the obvious kindergarten method of measuring was it seemed incorrect to me. So I contacted Ackermann to see if they had a more accurate measurement. The USA warehouse didn't have this information and referred me to Germany. Germany responded by giving me this information. Quote: Poly 40 weight thread is .24685 mm in thickness. Rayon is a little thinner. So now when you try to calculate anything using 40 thread you have the accurate measurement. This would be very useful when zooming in on a stitch file and measuring densities. So use your new found knowledge well. And have a good week )
  10. You need the following equipment for embroidery designs like this Inkjet printer, OpagueTransfer paper Heat press Embroidery Machine Sequin option In the embroidery industry many of us have a closed view of what we can offer, with a little bit of imagination, some troubleshooting and some creativity you can give your designs the illusion of blends and extraordinary detail. I am know master but Tajima Japan has this figured out. Each year they send out a Christmas card that they embroidered on paper no less , but with an image in the back ground and stitches on top.. The machine embroidery design below was made with the color change sequin option and two contrasting colors of sequins. The above machine embroidery design was made by printing the image on the paper, printing the water spray with green, yellow and red run stitches, covered up by a white satin stitch random on both sides at a lower density of around 30 spi. The monument was down in a satin stitch and high lighted with a run stitch on top to make it appear like it has a shadow. Most shows either had a ink jet printer they can print heat transfers with and sew an embroidery design on top. this is an effective way to create blends with out the time of sewing out multiple layers. Their is one not you need to mark the image at some point where you can line up the first needle so the sew out aligns with the design. Introduction to blending In multimedia designs another technique is to use different embroidery thread types or different colors of embroidery thread to simulate a blend. When doing blends its important to understand density as you need to lighten the density of the layers , as you want the stitches to lightly overlap so when sewn out they blend together. Now before you get to worried its not all the hard.. lets take a look at the elements of the design and the properties. Please note the images will look very different as the first design was made in Tajima Pulse version 13 and this one was made in Tajima Pulse version 14 , the stitch engine changes the way the stitches look. It took me a long time to get used to it. So the this layer is made up of different satin stitches using a pattern fill and a density of 20 spi This layer is made up of satin stitch with a density of 20 spi , tatami pattern , jagged on the first side with a randomness of 60 , this staggers the stitches and randomize the edge. The last layer. This layer adds the details density is 25 the fill is Tatami 50 and jagged on the first size randomness of 60 . To understand fills you really need to sew out the different patterns and different density to appreciate what they look like. Every technique will teach you the basics, you need to practice on sample embroidery designs to understand how they can be applied. One thing to keep in mind is that all the layers should equal no more than 55-75 spi When I worked for a few different companies as embroiders they often asked why they cannot make small letters look good when other shops can. I explained to them that there using the wrong needle for the application. To make small letters look good you should be using a 65/9 needle and 60 wt embroidery thread, the needle is about 30 % smaller than the 75/11 needle and the thread is half the thickness of 40 wt .. making it ideal for fine detail and small letters. In future blogs we will cover this, however you can blend to thickness of threads in the same embroidery design repeating patterns and using a compliment color to get shading effect.
