While you are working with the embroidery machine, you have to understand that they are unable to read the files of the same type as your computer, and bringing a digitized embroidery with the machine starts by understating the format before you move forward.
Looking at this from a digitized embroiderer’s viewpoint, it would say that the JPG or PNG file you have received from the customer needs to be converted into the embroidery file so that you can produce the best cartoon embroidery designs all love.
Now that you have determined the type of format you would need on your embroidery machine, you are moving forward in the right direction to bring the best artwork or design into the correct file type.
Here you need to install the much needed digitizing software on your computer to make the workflow better, once the software is completely set up, it will need to follow the given steps:
1. Uploading The Required Design In The Digitizing Software
For the first step, you need to tell the software on what design the work is needed to be done. To do this, simply insert the artwork or design file into the software and edit the blank space around the image to start working on the crisp embroidered piece.
2. Choosing The Right Size Of Embroidery Design
Provide the software the exact dimensions you need your embroidered design to be in. This will be the dimension that will come out on the product for which you have been producing it, so make sure that you assess the correct size ratio of the embroidery before filling out the details. Now that you have the right dimensions, do a final check of the picture and proceed to the next step.
3. Choosing The Stitch Type
The stitching type has various options available in it from where you can choose based on the final look and texture you would want. Every stitch type works around their maximum stitch length that must be taken into consideration before you start the work with your cartoon machine embroidery designs.
a) Straight– This foundational stitch for embroidery has straight lines that make a pattern of repetition. This way you can create thick stitching lines many times.
b) Satin– If you want to have text embroidered on the surface you are working on then you probably want to put your bets on the satin stitch. With the help of satin stitch,h you can generate shiny text which goes perfect for lettering.
c) Fill– Fil stitch or tatami stitch is also known as the ceding stitch. This stitch type is mostly used to fill the blank patterns and it can be guessed easily with its name. Here alternating lines are used to provide the embroidery with a woven experience.
4. Providing The Right Direction Of Stitch
Providing the right direction with the stitching can play an important role down the map road of the embroidery creation and the machine follows it pretty well. Here in this step, you will provide the measuring instructions to the machine to follow on every stitch.
Different stitch using options are preferred to achieve great patterns which will bring the excellent appearance of different color contrast, textures, and shades.
5. Choose The Right Thread Color For Embroidery
You can choose the best thread color from the various options available at the color bar. Make sure you are choosing the exact color of thread that is shown in the design and don’t make changes on your behalf. If you are not sure about the color or any shade then get in touch with the main party who assigned you this task.
6. Transferring The Design File To The Embroidery Machine
Now that you have converted the file (DST, exp, Jef) as per the correct format of the embroidery machine. It is time to transfer the file where you can use a USB cable, flashcard, or directly from your system into the software used for embroidery.
7. Prepare The Machine To Start The Embroidering
We are ready to get the embroidery to start with the embroidery machines after taking the initial steps of preparation. Start by feeding the information to the machine regarding the design elements by making the right selection of needles, threads, orientation, and embroidery sequence. Before pressing the hit, ensure the color match with the threads is exact.
8. Perform A Test Run On The Machine
If you are doubtful, you can go ahead by running a sample run on the embroidery machine with the chosen design. This won’t take much of you but will save you from the efforts later on.
Check at the design it brings out and you can make the required changes by doing the correct adjustments. If the results aren’t satisfying in another sample, make more adjustments until you are sure.
