EMBROIDERY TECHNIQUES


Contemporary embroidery is stitched with a computerized embroidery machine using patterns "digitized" with embroidery
software. In machine embroidery, different types of "fills" add textures and design to the finished work.
Machine embroidery is used to add logos and monograms to business shirts or jackets, gifts, and team apparel
as well as to decorate household linens, draperies, and decorator fabrics that minic the elaborate hand embroidery of the past.


STANDARD DIGITIZED DESIGN



Digitizing is the most important part for creating high quality Custom Embroidery. Embroidery digitizing or coding,
originally referred to as "punching", is the art of creating embroidery "stitches" from text or printed graphic art.
Digitizing creates instructions allowing a logo to be stitched on a commercial embroidery machine.
We utilize state-of-the-art digitizing software using advanced vector art graphics allowing for fast,
affordable and precision conversion.

3-D OR PUFF EMBROIDERY


Its a simple technique of incorporating a unique embroidery foam into your design which makes the design dramatically
stand-up or PUFF. Can any design be made into puff? No! Puff needs width, but not too much width.
Typically, the preferred width is 1/4 to 1/2" wide, designs which are too large or too wide cannot be converted into puff,
same applies to objects or lettering which are too small or thin.
The only way for us to give you a complete answer is if you email the design to us and explain what you want to do.

APPLIQUE EMBROIDERY


A technique in which pieces of fabric, embroidery, or other materials are swen onto another piece of fabric

Embroidery is NOT printing, if your logo or artwork includes drop shadows, color gradients or shading,
we will have to discuss how to make the color scheme conform to embroidery. Color gradients or shading
are not practical in embroidery. We have some tricks, but there are limits on what can be achieved with needle and thread.
