Have a logo and want it to get printed, but don’t know how to get the designs on fabric?
The art of converting digital images to machine readable format is called embroidery digitizing. The process of digitizing start from simplifying the complex images to make it all set for embroidery.The artwork is opened in the digitizing software where the digitize can just point the mouse to define the stitches.After modifying the image digitizer needs to decide about the pathing of the design.The pathing is known as the stitches which are run out in a specific sequence and is responsible for the final layout of the design. If the embroidery doesn’t run in sequence it can affect the layout with unwanted gaps or missed stitches. The process of portraying the stitches are both technical and highly creative.
Allocation of Stitches
The next step undertaken is to allocate the stitches based on the design. This first step is started by underlay stitches which is not visible in final design or logo but is important for perfect finished look. Underlying helps in sustaining the the fabric and make a base on the fabric for the upper layer stitches to have smoother surface and increased density.By not using proper underlay the fabric underneath the design is visible. Stitches are characterized into three types , run, satin and fill. Digitizer will make sure he is well prepared for the pull and push of embroidery and made adjustments accordingly for the best result during the final machine work on fabric.
Save the design
Final step after the design is being embroidered is to save the design in internal file format. As the embroidery machine and design software has different language, digitizer needs to create a copy for the embroidery machine to read and understand.
