Art Preparation for Embroidery
Programming stitch files for embroidery is an art form which has a steep and lengthy learning curve. To sew properly on our high-speed computerized machines, garment type, fabric color, size, stitch count direction, and so much more is taken into account. Artwork, therefore, should be of the highest quality possible, having sharp, clearly defined edges at the size at which the finished design will be stitched.
Some Designs Cannot Be Translated Into Stitching
Computer files such as: .jpg of at least 150dpi; .eps; .ai; or .psd are best to work from. Colored artwork on paper is often usable. Please note that designs which have shading, small details or lettering which is less than 3/16″ may have to be simplified. Some designs cannot be translated into stitching owing to the thickness of thread and the distance the needle must move to create a stitch. This is especially true of some designs for today’s caps which have a stitch-able area of only 2-1/8” in height.
Number Of Stitches & Complexity
Quotes for stitch file preparation are based on the size, number of stitches and or the complexity of the design. File preparation is a non refundable separate one time cost.
