Contemporary embroidery is stitched with a computerised embroidery machine using patterns "digitized" with embroidery software. In machine embroidery, different types of "fills" add texture and design to the finished work. Machine embroidery is used to add logos and monograms to business shirts or jackets, gifts, team apparel and more. Before a logo can be embroidered it must be digitised. Digitising is a computer process that generates the machine commands that tell the embroidery machine when and where to sew which type of stitch and with which colour. Digitising is a one-time charge based on the number of stitches in the final design and the complexity of the artwork. You will be quoted for each design that requires digitising.
