Whenever the digitizer begins the embroidery digitizing process, he/she has to analyze the artwork first to check if it needs further editing for embroidery. There can me numerous modifications, such as some are needed to be simplified, whole others need outlining or enlarging the font of the text and so on.

Pathing in Digitizing:


Right after the artwork is correctly modified, the stitch file needs to be created. For this purpose, the graphics program file that previously edited the artwork is opened in the embroidery program so that it can be used as a template. This template is for creating the stitch file. In order to do this, the digitizer has to make the decision regarding how the pathing will run. This pathing in any artwork is actually a sequence of stitches in a design that is applied from start to finish. It affects how the design will be set to lay after being finished. If you do not practice this technique, unwanted gaps of fabric may occur after the embroidery digitizing is finished.


Assigning the Embroidery Stitch Types:


After pathing, the digitizer has to assign the stitch to all sections of the design and this is decided on the basis that what kind of stitch will best represent the artwork. This process starts off with the addition of underlay stitches. If you are creating a professional looking logo, you have to correctly underlay the stitches though they cannot be seen in a finished logo. An essential element in embroidery is the stability of the fabric to the backing and underlay does this job. The nap of the fabric is basically laid down for providing the remaining stitches a smooth surface on which they can embroider on along with adding density to the design.


In embroidery digitizing, there are only 3 basic stitch types, which are run, satin and fill. However, they are offered in various variations. When the digitizer is deciding a stitch type, he/she has to consider on what fabric the logo will be embroidered on, what variation of the stitch to use and where the stitch should begin and stop. Stitches will sink into the fabrics and lay on the surface of the denser fabrics.


The Push & Pull of Embroidery:

Push and Pull is the important aspect of embroidery digitizing and this technique is used to avoid the movement of the design while it’s being embroidered. Due to this movement, some of the stitches may shift and this shifting happens when the long stitches, bulky fabrics, tight bobbin thread and large areas of thread are used. Therefore, the digitizer has to account for all the possible effects of push and pull on the design. For the compensation, prior adjustments are required to be made.
