Digitizing with Us

Send us your artwork, logo, or photo and we will create a high-quality digitized file. Our digitizers use specialized software as well as hand drawing (sometimes referred to as hand punched embroidery) to create a digital version of the design.  We assign specific types of stitches and thread colors to each element of the design to create stunning embroidered pieces. 

Our experienced digitizers consider various factors when creating a file.  The type or fabric or material on which the design will be embroidered, the size of the design and the desired level of detail can all impact how the final design sews out. We may make small adjustments to the design to ensure that the artwork can be accurately reproduced using embroidery techniques.  By studying all aspects of the design, we ensure that digitized file translates well into a physical embroidered product that is high quality and visually appealing.

Once we complete the digitizing process, the file can be loaded onto an embroidery machine.  The machine then uses the file to stitch the design onto fabric or other materials.  The digitized file acts as a set of instructions that guides the machine to use certain stitches and thread colors while sewing the design.

In short, we translate your design into a file that can be embroidered into a beautifully stitched piece of art!
