How To Create Unique and Customized Digitized Embroidery
Embroidery digitizers are used to automate the process of creating complex patterns on textiles using a sewing or embroidery machine – these machines can reproduce the most riveting and complex designs all the way to the very last stitch, giving unbelievable quality control to both amateurs and professional sewers alike.Polo bestickt Digitizing is most generally used in the branding of products, creation of logos and corporate advertising as well as general clothing and textile designs
If you are looking to create unique beautiful embroidery designs with your digitized embroidery machine, then you’ll want to follow these five steps:
Purchase or create your own digitized embroidery file design
Make any necessary edits and adjustments to the embroidery file design
Boot the file up in your embroidery digitizer
Load up your fabric and guide it into your machine
Begin the embroidery process and ensure the output meets your requirements
- Design the Files
Embroidery digitizer design files can be either purchased from your local embroidery shop, or online from numerous retailers. Alternatively if you do not wish to purchase a design you can create your own by purchasing and using embroidery digitizing software.
- Converting the Design
Once the embroidery design has been digitized an experienced embroiderer can use the embroidery digitizing software to more accurately edit the design to make sure it exactly suits your needs. These software programs give embroiderers huge flexibility in scaling, moving, stretching, editing, distorting, cropping and general customization of the embroidery design. Text can be added, and individual stitches replicated, moved and duplicated. Embroidery digitizers really give their users complete freedom over the design of their products and materials.
- Loading the Design
After the editing process and once you are completely happy with the embroidery design it is time to load the design up into the digitizer. Each brand of machine is unique and will require the design to be uploaded in a different file format – at this stage it would be wise to consult your user manual to determine your specific upload requirements. These designs are transferred to the machine either via USB, CD or flash cards like within a camera.
