As you can imagine, embroidery works a little differently from printing.
Embroidery machines need to be told where, when and how to place the stitches required to create your design – this information cannot be coded into a standard image file like PNG or JPG as it would have no instructions for what is being ‘drawn’. For that, we need something more specialised: digitising requires an artist’s touch!
But before any work begins on converting designs from paper onto fabric, some guidelines must first apply. These will vary depending on which product has been chosen, but they’re important factors worth considering before ordering embroidered designs.
Design Guidelines for Embroidery
Embroidery is a versatile and beautiful product that adds warmth to any garment or accessory. Designs can be created in 3D or flat styles, with multiple colour choices available for the most realistic embroidered appearance.
The design file needs to meet certain criteria before it’s digitized, and the maximum size of the embroidery depends on which product you’re using.
