  1. As with any industry, there can be a wide range of skill levels and common mistakes that can be found. The world of embroidery digitizing is no different. Here are 18 mistakes that you’ll want to avoid to become a world-class embroidery digitizer. Following the wrong stitch direction This is one of the biggest mistakes an embroidery digitizer can make as it has such a big impact on the overall quality. Going in the wrong direction is likely to negatively affect the stitch angle and the overall look of the final product. Careful consideration is needed to avoid such a mistake. Not using the right style Many parts of embroidery digitizing Not using underlay Using the right underlay is vital to embroidery digitizing and using none at all could cause a potential disaster. This can distort the design, especially when using multiple fabric types. Take time to consider the right underlay for you otherwise you could make your life very difficult. Exceeding the stitch limit As an digitizer, it’s important to work within the limits to ensure the high quality of the work. Trying to get your machine to do more than it’s capable of will lead to poor results. It’s important to remember your stitch limits and stick with it. Your client might have budgeted on a certain stitchcount so if you present them with a design that is double of what they expected means their costing will be way out and hence eat into their profits. No forward planning Planning is vital to all areas of design and embroidery digitizing is no different. Without it, you could end up making mistakes and end up with a poor design. A detailed planning session is required before you get started. A great embroidery digitizer will be meticulous about their work. Not considering the digitizing aspects A failure to consider digitizing aspects can be seen all around us. This often happens when push and pull compensation takes place. This will be caused by a flat frame being different from the curved substrate. Not acknowledging the difference can be a big mistake. Lack of pathing Setting the correct path is vital for digitizing. It’s important to position yourself correctly to match your design to what you see on the screen. This will prevent the machine from jumping and causing too many trims in the final product. Overlooking the bobbin The thread tension needs to be checked whenever you change the bobbin. It’s a part of embroidery digitizing that needs to become a habit. Once it is, it will allow you to complete the work to a higher standard and more efficiently. Falling into bad habits can seriously affect the work of an embroidery digitizer. Not knowing the minimum height of text for different fabrics When it comes to text, mistakes are blatantly obvious in the world of embroidery digitizing. If you go too small then it can lead to writing that is impossible to read or no spacing. This is avoided by knowing that the minimum text height is for each fabric that you use. Not sewing from the center5> This is going to be vital when working with hats. It’s important to know the requirements of each material and product you are working with. This is vital to get the right amount of push in each direction for a great finish. Using the wrong design application You can always fall into bad habits with custom embroidery digitizing and using the wrong design application is one of the biggest mistakes you can make. It will make your life a lot harder and cause a lot more issues along the way. Make time to know exactly what applications suit your different tasks. Poor compensation It’s always important to know how to perfectly fit your design. Using the wrong dimensions could mean ending up with a poor quality product. You will also have issues such as the underlay sticking out or having a poor fit in general. Incorrect density Using the wrong density can destroy a design. It could end up with you having a product that is either too thin or too thick. Both can be big issues that can affect the quality of the finished product. Having the wrong density can be a huge mistake. The wrong stitch width Using the wrong stitch width can leave you with a finished product that looks unprofessional with looping stitches and excess trims. There can also be a difference in the density of the stitching to cause further issues to leave you with a very poor finished product. The wrong stitch length Using the wrong stitch lengths can have a huge impact on the overall quality of the design. It can cause underlay to stick out and other key problems, especially with lettering. The problem is also made worse with small lettering and using the right stitch length is vital to get a professional finish. Using the wrong fill type Embroidery digitizers need to know how to use the right fill type and many can get it wrong. To avoid this mistake you need to have a clear understanding of what type of fills are going to be available. Once you know this, you’ll be able to choose the right fill every time without making any mistakes. Not locking the stitches Lock stitching isn’t always required and it can lead some to become lazy and try and leave it out in the places where it should be used. This is especially important on thicker materials and it’s important to use it when required. Lack of creativity by not using the correct stitch type Being a great embroidery digitizer involves using your creativity to come up with the best possible design. Issues can be caused, however, if you are not using the correct stitch type as this will have a big impact on how creative you can be.

  3. Hello; I am new to digitizing, but not to graphics or software by any means. Trying to feel my way through Digitizer V5, with typically lousy documentation that everything seems to come with. If there is something in the software, should it not be explained in the flipping manual? These things are not, and it pisses me off to have to bash my head against this, hoping to luck out and find an answer. Rant off. 1) I am playing with changing object attributes, and as such the "Resequence" menu comes into play. I see there are "Object" and "Object Type", and that each item has a different icon describing its type. NOWHERE do I find any explanation of what each icon means? 2) If you had a word digitized, it seems to me that you would want each letter to have the same object type so that you could then also make its attributes the same as the rest to keep the appearance of each consistent. Not only are the object types different, nor can I find out what the icons mean, but I do not seem to be able to change the object type. What do these icons mean, and how do I deal with them? 3) When I save a digitized file, there are only three file types available (two variants of EMB, and one JEF). None of these are available in the Janome interface. Since this Wilcom software came with the 500E machine, should there not be some compatibility here? Since the file types are not compatible, I cannot make the machine "see" the files to import them. ??????? We've got other problems, but this will do for a start. Not looking for a free ride, just a nudge forward. Thanks for any and all advice.

  5. Are you new to the industry do you out source your embroidery digitizing, How do you know which digitizers are good? Well this can be a challenge at the best of times, whether you learn to digitize or out source it you will still be a part of the equation. You need to provide them with the tools to make the machine embroidery design custom to your needs. You need to provide them with the size, number of colors, the fabric or application you plan to embroider it on and more. TIPS Scan the artwork in at 300 dpi finished size of the design number of colors the application whether its going on caps or flat the material type . Most digitizing companies will quote the job prior to digitizing it or explain their rates up front so their should be no surprises. The rate varies from $1 to $15 per 1000 stitches depending on the companies policies and abilities. In today's market its very competitive market so show around. Its also good to have a few good digitizing companies in your play book as some digitizers specialize in one or two methods,.. Some specialize in making embroidery patches, chenille, corporate logos, jacket backs and more. My specialty was motorcycles I like digitizing these embroidery designs. but some companies do photo realistic work. In the above artwork the design was for a jacket back for a zoom keeper of the tiger, he wanted a very good interpretation of what the tiger looked like, the only problem with this design is its costly, like $80-100 to have it digitized. The best way to find a good digitizing company is to check with your peers, or send out the same design to several embroidery digitizers to evaluate the ability to meet your criteria. I would choose a design that had several different elements in the design possibly including small lettering and several colors, you will be amazed that the results you get back. Now that you have found a few digitizers evaluate their ordering system, is it easy to order, is it down in a fair time. are they easy to understand. these are all factors in finding a digitizer that is suited for you. Another decent design for a jacket back from a 2nd company. This design is okay but not great so , but would be okay for a left chest. You need to know what to expect when you get something digitized , it also needs to sew out smoothly and be editable by you, some companies only supply the stitch format so any edits you need to go back to them for work to be done. You should find someone that uses your software and willing to provide it in an outline format like PXF for Tajima Pulse users, Most digitizing companies only provide the DST or stitch file.
