This is a crucial aspect of the embroidery process and begins with an idea or a work of art. This work of art is digitized in a special process of conversion of two-dimensional illustrations in stitches or thread. However, there is a digitized computer software that allows many machines to embroider (sew) the design continuously in the different garments.
Digitized image / Art:
The embroidery process starts with (depending on the size and also the detail of an image);digitizing an image can be simple and very complicated. When an image is digitized, our technician or artisan uses a digital computer program to help you perfectly translate your electronic artwork into a stitch system, which the embroidery can read. This is a one-time process that requires experience and a clean work of art in the beginning phase. Skills and creativity are key to the digitization of embroidery.
The production process
Although the digitization process industrializes and automates the sewing of the machine, many of the processes are continually practical. Specific thread colors must be manually loaded into the machine before sewing begins, and a thread spool must be loaded for each color for each sewing head.
Our technicians also programmed this machine so that the design can be sewn in a specific color sequence and a specific sewing speed. Usually, garments are placed only by hand, after which they are loaded into the machine. When sewing is completed, the garment is removed from the machine, unrolled, and we move on to the next step of the production process.
Embroidery stitching involves:
Setting the area of the garment that must be embroidered on a device called a hoop.
Embroidery of garments with rings, fixing them to the embroidery machine. Elimination of unnecessary points accumulated during embroidery and the elimination of any backing material that is used to stabilize the fabric; this is previously known as cutting, tearing and trimming.
Choose the garment or clothing to embroider:
One of the most important deliberations is to choose the type of garment or clothing material when embroidering. For example; a shirt may have fewer points than denim since the fabric is not heavy and wont hold as many points. On the other hand; materials similar to the polyester-fleece and the under-stitches that we barely sees in the final product will capture different points.
The fleece is comparatively thick and elastic, as it has been stretched. Therefore; there is a need for base seams to crush the fleece instead of the satin stitches. Otherwise the stitches may be lost and seen only in elastic fleeces.
Again, a logo can be used on different occasions for different types of fabrics. But, for a better presentation, we recommend and appreciate working with us in advance when selecting the garment and the type of fabric to be embroidered.
