Pathing or mapping out your embroidery design ? When a customer comes approaches you with a design or logo for you to digitize you first need to know the quality of the artwork, the clarity of the artwork will make your job easier to digitize it. I recommend that you get the file as artwork or as a clean bitmap file. See examples below HIGH QUALITY IMAGE POOR QUALITY IMAGE If I was digitizing these two images , I would charge the more for a poor quality image as I would need to clean it up or prep the art work either in Corel Draw or Adobe Illustrator to prepare the artwork. Some people try to digitize these images but when you need to zoom in the file distorts so its hard to determine the details. Planning Compensations What material are you going to be sewing on, leather , cotton, What application are you using , hats, jackets, left chest etc Is there any special things to consider, applique, chenille etc What is the final size of the design Application considerations When digitizing a new embroidery design you want to remember that you want it to sew out smoothly and in a timely fashion, too many trims, colors or jumps will result in a design machine operators will dread. Plan for the design to be sew from the center out Plan to hide stitches to reduce the amount of trims Plan the layout to reduce the amount of jumps. Planning Stages Now you should be ready to plan your attack , selecting a recipe is a good base but knowing the material your sewing on is key, I like using some base underlay throughout the design as a good foundation. If the fabric is a stretch fabric I will use to layers one at a 90 degrees to the first , the I then will pick the first color, usually I pick the color with the most amount of components this way I can hide my run stitch with the following layers. Don't be afraid to use the run stitches, a run stitch can be used to keep the machine moving when digitizing a design so the head doesn't need to stop and trim or jump to the next segment in the design. The less amount of jumps, trims the more efficient your machine embroidery designs will sew out. Sew out directions First Color Second Color Third Color Fourth Color Fifth Color This design should sew out fast with only 3 trims throughout and only 5 color changes with no repeats is should be smooth , Now if I spent more time on the design I could clean it up and reduce the amount of jumps. Mind you will need to add some underlay and compensation but these steps can be applied to any design. Author: Frank Prokator
Hello, You have beautiful machine embroidery design. We would like you buy your Old Toys embroidery. We want to apply them on t-shirts, towels and the like. Is this possible? When they we buy it from you, for example, designs teddy bear, rabbit and other, we can then resell to our customers via e-shop? Or only for home use. I hope you understand at least a little, because I do not know good English. But I have a serious interest in cooperation thank you for response. But I have a serious interest in cooperation
Hi list. This took a minute but I have found my way. I need to know how to embroider with foam and the 3d fonts. I have tried it several ways and the foam pops through. The funny thing is when I didn't use any foam it looked great. I would like some foam on the hat, since that is what the customer wants. Any help and suggestions? Thank you in advance, this group has gotten me through my first year and I have nothing but gratitude for all of you. Thank you
