Small Text Ever wonder why some shops can embroider very small text and you struggle with it , well its all in the thread, if your using a standard needle and standard thread it is very difficult to make your letters defined. Here is an example of text sew at 5 mm that looks clean as it was double the size. The trick is in the needle and thread size.. we used a 60 wt thread which is half the thickness of standard 40 wt thread and we used a 65/9 needle this makes a world of difference for small lettering.

Multimedia Techniques Ink transfers and Embroidery This technique doesn't need to be hard, Treat it like an applique put a mark in the image of the center point, either use transfer paper or a digital printer to print the background image and then when you line up the embroidery center the needle on the center point of the design. This will allow you to create a illusion that it was all done at the same time. See the image below. ( Samples ) Applique backgrounds and Embroidery This applique was machine embroidery design for carpet, as when you digitize for carpets you have to use fills as if you use a satin stitch it will often break the needle. However having to stitch out a design this large with a complex fill I use applique as much as possible. So for the center part of this design I filled the black area in with Black Leather. To give it a standout texture. The methods on this may be out side of the box but they are used in some embroidery shops that want to stand out from the competition.
