  2. Hello I am from Australia and enquiring as to whether you do custom machine embroidery digitizing. I am in the process of making a Wedgewood inspired quilt and unable to find some particular designs anywhere on the internet. Would like to know if you could digitize them for me and what the cost would be. At this stage there are eight designs I would like digitized to fit a Husqvarna /Viking hoop 150x 240 hoop. I only have a very small picture of the designs so artwork or bitmap would also have to be done on your end. Hoping to hear from you very soon. Kind regards
  3. Embroidery Digitizing is a method to decorate the overall look of the design or material. The methodology starts when the art-piece is turned into a digital format and then the compatible software works on it to enhance the visibility and corporate image. After that, the design is read by the embroidery machine, turned into the graphic format and in the end; the machine embroiders the artwork efficiently. The techniques and methods take whole lot of efforts and expertise to get the job properly done. Now comes the question that in which category, does Embroidery Digitizing go to? Well, the simple answer is that it is a mix of both as only one characteristic between these two cannot be used to describe it. As technical as it looks, embroidery digitizing is basically an art as well. Embroidery Digitizing as Art: This embroidery method is all about understanding and learning about how the artwork is going to be designed and what should be the color combination. The look of “natural flair” is always taken as the priority because just like every art, beauty only shows when the product gives away natural flair. Along with that, the artistic touch and sense are also required when several things are decided, such as the patterns, vectorization and the decision of filling the blank spaces. The appropriate coordination of colors and shades is also important as well. Digitizing for embroidery is a kind of art procedure that definitely demands loads of things in terms of expertise of engineering, energy, motivation, material and performing the art in right direction. If it would be all about technical know-how, then it is not important at all to make so much effort to providing the best color schemes and making the designs look natural, which is the basic portion of embroidery digitizing. Embroidery Digitizing As Technical Skill: Along with being an art, it is a technical skill mainly because of the usage of the digitizing software, which is the most important part of the method. While making the use of the software, the optimum utilization of other tools is also of real importance so to ensure other factors, such as to make a correct number of stitches and not make them too dense etc. All of such considerations definitely need technological skills and understanding. There are times when the exact size and shape is needed, but not provided so the critical skill set is also required there to make sure that the design is made into the right size. So now you understand that embroidery digitizing is basically a combination of both art and technology that blend together to provide the high-quality embroidery experience to you & your clients. As stated above, it is both the art and the skill, so if you want any of your art piece embroidered and digitized, make sure that is gets done professionally by the service providers who are already the experts of this business. This work only looks good when it is done in excellence, which can only be achieved if the practitioners stay in business for quite a while.

  5. Introduction When learning to digitize you need a good understanding of some of the basic tools including the select tool, understanding the beads and how to use them. Will help you when working with text to match a embroidery design. Text Tool bar and Digitizing When digitizing embroidery designs its very important to understand the different text tools and how to manipulate them , in this blog we will look at the tools, and options for kerning individual letters , this is required for matching your customer designs. Each of the above tools have a different use, Text Tool : This tool is great for text in multiple lines, text on straight or curved lines, and name stacking Vertical Tool : This tools is used for making stair case letters up or down. Arc Tool : This tool allows you to put text in an arc formation Circle Tool : This tool allows you to put text in and complete circle Monogram tool: Used for monograms only Line angle tool : Used for making straight line text. Work space setup You will need to familiarize your self with your work space to take advantage of some tools for embroidery digitizing. There are some buttons you should have features turned on.. The beads in version allow you to see the kerning points how you move them varies depending on how you set up your software. Here is how to check if your Beads are turned on they should be depress or yellow. Kerning Review When learning to digitize you need to know how to space and manipulate the text on the base line or within vertical or horizontal positions. This section we will review some terms and tools you will need to understand how to use them, The videos will also demonstrate using these tools. Kerning Definition Kerning is the process of adjusting the spacing between characters in a proportional font, usually to achieve a visually pleasing result. Kerning adjusts the space between individual letter forms, while tracking(letter-spacing) adjusts spacing uniformly over a range of characters. Horizontal Kerning Beads Using the horizontal Kerning bead allows you to slide the text left or right, You need to have your beads turned on for these to show up, See image below of this bead and example of it being moved, to make it easier to see Tajima Pulse has change the outline to PINK when moving or adjusting the kerning. Vertical Kerning Beads Using the vertical kerning beads give you a few more options, when you click on this bead a pink box will circle the letter with nodes on the corner and arm at the top with a circle. This is very similar to using the power edit feature in some levels of the software. Skew or Slanting Letters To the right by grabbing the top right most node you can skew a letter left or right. This will enable you to move in real time instead of guessing the slant or italicize the letter. This also know and skew, slant or italicize. The node should be pink in your software. Zoom in to make it easier to see. Vertical Height Adjustments To the left we show you how to adjust the height of a letter using the kerning tools, if you grab the top node on the box click and drag it up this will make the letter taller, if you need to make it proportional you need to use another tool. The node should be pink in your software , zoom in to make it easier to see. Proportional Size To the right you should see which node to grab to adjust the letter in proportion this means equally tall and wide as the original.The node should be pink in your embroidery digitizing software , zoom in to make it easier to see. Horizontal Width Adjustments To the right you will see how to grab the node to make your letters wider, or stretched without adjusting the height. Grab the pink node on the right side of the letter and move it to the left to make the letter thinner, or to the right to make the letter fatter. Vertical Kerning Adjustments To the left you will see how to grab the node to make your letters wider, or stretched without adjusting the height. Grab the small ring in the center of the letter this will allow you to move the letter lower or higher on the axis. Its great for working with script letters to get the letters to align. But it also can be used when making the first letter larger and re-positioning it on the line. Rotate Kerning Tool To the right you will see how to grab the top node on the stick pointing up and rotate the letter, you can rotate the letters upside down if you need to mirror text or match an angle, I use this in 5% of designs for editing text. Next blog we will look at the advanced tools for text. when using them to digitize lettering
  6. When embroidery digitizing or just doing text it very important that you understand trims and locks many times they go hand in hand as often if your applying a trim to a machine embroidery design, you should be applying a lock stitch. Depending on the type of garment the use and your personal preference you can choose to put locks around trim stitches. Definition Trims A trims is when the machine cuts the thread before moving to another part of the design, this also can be done manually on older machines,. Locks A lock or lock stitch is a tie off after a trim, this locks the stitches down so they are less likely to unravel. Trims When you start to embroider or digitize you may not have any personal preferences when it comes to trimming or applying lock stitches. Trims often appear like little scissor like icons when you have your commands turned on. Locks Most times you will use locks around trims as it can help prevent the stitches unraveling when the material gets pulled on. There are several types of rules for locks, and several different types of lock stitches. There are several rules that you can choose to apply I like to use Basic lock stitches for most of my embroidery designs. I like to use locks on all stitch types although especially when trimming. I only like to trim when its necessary or when I cannot avoid it. Depending on the applications and or material it vital for locks to be applied to trims, specially on performance wear, dance wear, field where or construction field any application where the garment is exposed to rubbing, abrasive conditions. Applying Trims and Locks When your punching a embroidery design , you can either setup recipes, for your personal preferences or you can add them as you punch. As often you will need to do as you punch a design as you can control where and how to apply the rules. Give example on a embroidery design I do not like trimming, however on text unless their touching I always trim. However I always use locks no matter the stitch especially when working with text, except for script lettering I will not trim in them but I will add lock stitches. When you have a segment in Tajima Pulse version 14 you can either add trims and locks at the top of the screen. Advanced Options In version Tajima Pulse 14 there is also a feature to place the lock stitch on the inside of the letter it past version the locks sometimes would stick out from side of the letter, to use this feature in the latest build of version Tajima Pulse14 in the properties section where your trims are, see below; This section is new if you check it it will place the trim starting inside the letter. This is a great feature for lettering. Author: Frank Prokator
  7. Digitizing Corners Traditionally for most of us we are self taught when it comes to techniques and how to punch, there are general course available that teach us how to use the embroidery digitizing software and some specialty course but very few delve into the advanced options. This topic is one of those advance options as we will take a look at the type of corners available, embroidery software settings for cornering and how to manually adjust corners and the effects of cornering. Types of corners There are several types of corners used in the embroidery field; Auto-Turn Cornering Mitered Cornering Hand Sewn Cornering Capped Cornering Auto Turned Corners Generally in most designs you will often see the auto turned style of corner, where the corner is used at right or obtuse angles, they allow for the angle lines to be placed in a manner that they can curve in a natural fashion. Below is an auto turned corner. Mitered Style Corners Generally mitered corners are used when the corner is really acute or tight angles or when your working with small lettering. The example below is primitive , normally a mitered corner would over lap a bit so they do not pull apart or leave gaps. Hand Sewn Corners You would thing that this is not ideal but there are a lot of fonts out their that use this cornering method. Here is an exampled of the letter "V" with the hand sewn corner. Capped Corners Capped corners is a way of hiding the dividing lines when sewing a corner, and sometimes they use a high bread corner like on this font It caps the top but then mitered part of it too. Terminology There are several terms that you will need to understand when working with corners. Angle Lines Are lines with beads on either side the give the direction to how the stitches are to be sewn. Angle Line Tool The angle line tools allows you to select and manipulate or draw angle lines on the embroidery designs. Works with Beads. See the tool below. Beads The beads are line nodes or black dots on when end of the angle lines, they can me moved by clicking on them with the Angle Line Tool. Beads Tools This tool turns on the beads so that you can view them and be able to edit them. Tips for Cornering When you use angle lines to go around the corner give the stitch time to travel around the corner try not to force it into a small area as it will cause the stitches to bunch up and it will have a greater tendency to cause puckering on some fabrics. Usually you will see puckering when a corner has too many stitches and no short stitches . This is very common with digitizers that are newer and that is why a lot of design opt for using a miter corner or a capped corner or a combination of them both. If you your using a corner like a mitered make sure you over lap part of the design or gaps will appear and it will look shabby. Do not get angle line happy, some digitizer will tend to put too many angle lines and its not necessary. Typically you need one angle line near the start on the column one about 1/4 inch from a corner on either side with a slight angle to it and one near the end, on circles four or five is all that's necessary. Settings When using steil stitches you will need to watch how it tries to do a corner and there is some simple fixes that can help you. Here is a example of steil of the letter M where the circles are. You can edit the steil to correct the wrap around the corners , this is often needed on applique style fonts that have a steil border or outline fonts and other embroidery designs where steil is used. Splitting Anchors Typically what you can do this by using the vertex select tool drawing a small box around the area this will highlight the anchors, right click on the anchor you want to separate, choose separate anchor. Here is what the results will look like. Very much improved. This will help on any steil border. On satin stitches you cane either edit your angle embroidery stitches or slice it or cap it to get the same look. When doing satin stitches you want your right angle corners to auto short stitch this is seen below, this will not pucker. However if you do not take this into consideration when cornering with the satin tool you will end up with stitches like this. In this examples all the needle penetrations are very tight too many stitches in one area will cause puckering on nylon, satin and delicate fabrics. Note: For digitizers you need to master how to corner the design properly, watch how you put your angle lines down, try not to put them so close together the software will try to space the corners out, when your using a satin style stitch, as long as you do not force to many angle lines on an area. Tip .. Go to your local fabric store pick up some satin and use this to practice making corners, this is one of the fabric that will pucker if you do not do your corner, if you master it on this fabric all other fabrics will sew out correctly.
