Artwork - What Changes Can't Be Made?

Uncertain what changes can't easily be made to your artwork when converting it to an embroidery set-up?

  • Change Fonts - the font(s) must stay the same unless its necessary to simplify the font. Then the digitizer (person who creates the embroidery set-up) must modify the text in the artwork before converting it to stitches. This can happen when a detailed font is used for small text.
  • Add Elements without having artwork for them - This includes adding text or an image or completing a partial image
  • Downsize Design Elements to any size - sometimes a design element can't be decreased to a size that's small enough for the logo without being too small to be embroidered. Just because a printed logo can be downsized to the required size doesn't mean it can be translated into stitches that will embroider well.

Embroidery News: Apparel Defined:

Come across some unknown words when shopping for embroidered apparel? Here are some definitions:

  • Bonded Fleece - multiple layers of fleece are bonded together to create a heavier fleece
  • Carded Ring Spun Cotton - cotton that contains a wider range of fiber lengths because it hasn't been combed and therefore isn't as strong as combed cotton
  • Chin Guard - a fold of soft fabric located where the zipper ends at the neck. This fabric is also referred to as a "zipper garage".
