Modern embroidery machines

Embroidery is one of the finest forms of textile finishing. Motifs are displayed three-dimensionally with bright and strong colors and appear very high quality. Even special colors such as gold or silver are possible. Thanks to multi-headed, modern and automated embroidery machines, almost all positions can be refined in this process.

Six common design Mistakes

Narrow lines and small texts

Avoid the use of very small letters due to the fact the embroidered text may not be readable. Keep the text at least 0.25” in height and at the least 0.05” thick.

The minimum recommended line thickness for the regular satin stitch is 0.05”. For thinner lines we’ll use run stitch (a single line of stitches).

0.25” is equivalent to approximately 36pt, and the letters will also have the necessary thickness. But this depends on the font. We recommend using simple fonts like Arial, Helvetica, Myriad pro.

Gradients

Print designs do not work for embroidery, We can only embroider solid shapes and colors. Gradients won’t work due to the fact we can’t transition from one shade thread to another.

You should convert gradients to a one-color graphic, and split multiple color design with gradients into solid colors.

Incorrect

Correct

Photographic images
Same as gradient files, the machines can not recognize all details in the image. Photographic images have to be redesigned to solid shapes and colors.
