What is Embroidery “Digitizing”

doa-measuring-600x400Embroidery Digitizing – The deal with embroidery vs. every other printing method, is that you can’t convert logo into the digitized format easily. So you have to outline the text for instance in the embroidery software and then tell it were you want the stitches to be. Lets say a “T” has to be cut into two parts, because you want the stitching one direction on the “I” and the other direction on the “–”. This becomes time consuming for the initial setup. Also with paper printing you can print extremely fine detail. With embroidery you are limited. If you have too many stitches (detail) in a certain area, the thread will usually break because it’s going on top of each other and gets “too tight”. Your garment can also start to pucker in these area.
