How To Digitize A Logo For Embroidery
You see so many logos around you all the time. Did you know how many steps they went through before finally becoming what they are and the hard work that was put into them? Well, you will now, because in this article we will tell you all about how to digitize a logo For embroidery
- Use the digitizing software to upload the logo
This is the first and foremost thing that you will have to do. And although this seems easy, you need to know much about digitizing and logos to be able to do this correctly. So, you upload the logo on the digitizing software and then make changes to it that you deem fit and appropriate. For example, remove the blank space from around the logo, make the logo large enough for people to be able to see but not so large that it will not look nice and take up all the space or touch the border. All these things need to be taken care of.
- The type of stitch
The next step in digitizing embroidery designs for a logo is to select the type of stitch you think is the right one depending on the kind of logo. There are many stitch styles that you could choose from to create different kind of looks and textures for your logo.
Ensure that you choose the right length of stitch because different stitches have different lengths. You also need to choose the material of the stitch and there are a few you could choose from, such as sill or satin among others. It is also important to consider the stretch of the fabric when you are selecting the appropriate stitch type.
- The stitch pathway
This is an extremely important component while logo digitizing because the direction of the stitch will set the pathway of the machine. And the right pathway is crucial to ensure that the logo turns out perfect and just the way you want it to be.
The pathway tells the machine when and where to start, stop, the sequence and order of the steps of the design, and information about the borders and edges. Without the correct pathway, all the work you just did in the above steps would become useless, and you might have to start all over again. This is because the design might turn out in the wrong sequence, unequal or with a lot of spaces. And you don’t want that now, do you?
- The color of the thread
It is finally time to choose the color of the thread. While doing this, ensure that you keep in mind the correct matching of the logo and thread or getting this one step wrong can cost you your whole logo and all those hours of hard work you put in.
- Transfer the file to the embroidery machine and prepare it
Now that everything is all done and prepared, transfer the file to the embroidery machine using a USB or whatever means you have. Then, you prepare the machine for the work and place the fabric or garments in the into the machine to get your final product delivered.
These were the steps of how to digitize for embroidery. Hope this helped!
