Embroidery Digitizing

Digitiing software is used to create embroidery designs by programming the embroidery machine to produce a specific design in a certain color with a specific type of stitch. The digitizing department has to re-create the artwork using stitches by plotting points. Essentially, the image is drawn in the same pattern that the threads will later be stitched.

Vector art files are helpful for the digitizing process, however, they are not required. It is possible to digitize from scanned image or simple jpeg and other bitmap files with reasonable quality.

Once a design has been digitized, it can be edited, transformed and combined with other designs.
