Over the last couple of years embroidery digitizing has seen a major facelift. With new machines and technology getting your company logo on promotional products is easier than ever before. It saves time and money and gives a cost effective way to promote a brand to the target audience.
In very simple words, embroidery digitizing is converting digital art into embroidery. Several businesses prefer to have their company logo and marketing messages embroidered on the promotional products they distribute. Digitizing allows businesses to convert artwork into stitch files that can be read by an embroidery machine.
Digitizing is not just a technical process, but a creative one as well. It cannot be left only to the machines. It requires skill and hard work of the worksmen. A skilled artist is the one who drives the machine to ultimately provide a clear and flawless design. At ArtworkServicesUSA we have such skilled artists with years of experience who add touch of excellence to each artwork.
Years ago, before computers were used; embroidery designs were sewn on a machine that was driven by a paper tape. Early versions of the software required the programmer to enter a design stitch by stitch. But now with the invention of computers and sophisticated machinery, embroidery designs can be digitally printed on any surface. This means clean work with high quality finish. Complicated designs with intricate workings can be easily laid out with the help of these software’s and machines. The new generation of machines runs quickly with any number of colors applied on a single job. This has increased the productivity considerably. There are a number of different machines that are used for modern digital embroidery:
1. Single-Head Embroidery Machines
These machines work really well for start-ups and small shops. It is a relatively simple machine that includes only the most commonly needed or used items to start your project right away.
2. Dual Function Embroidery Machines
These are basically traditional embroidery machines that are equipped to handle large orders. They can also work as two independent machines for smaller orders. This is done through a single touch-screen control panel. These machines can embroider two separate designs simultaneously and on different types of garments with great efficiency and speed. Thus saving time and increasing productivity. This machine allows you to make the most of your equipment cost.
3. Multi-Head Embroidery Machines
These are best suited for small to medium sized businesses.
4. Specialty Embroidery Machines
As the name suggests, this machine takes care of your special embroidery needs like quilting, large garments, blankets, and other large surfaces.
That’s not all, there’s a plethora of formats to choose from according to your needs. A few artwork service providers like ArtworkServicesUSA can get digitized artwork done in any of the following digitizing file formats: t01 and dst for tajima; emb, esl and ess for Wilcom; psd, pcq and pcs for Pfaff; pes and pec for babylock or any other format that you may require.
One of the biggest advancement in embroidery digitizing is that the turnover time has reduced drastically. Several art service providers including ArtworkServicesUSA even promises a turnover of 24 hours for bulk orders. This is not the only time saving option you have. Modern hi-tech computers allow the entire process of ordering to be carried out online. It is hassle free and simple; you can place your order from the comfort of your homes or offices. You just need to specify your requirements and your orders will be delivered to your doorstep.
With the new advances in science and technology, digitizing embroidery is easier than ever before. Now is the right time to invest in promotional products with your digitized embroidered logo and give your brand the exposure that it deserves.
