Embroidery Decoration Guidelines
We can digitize most logos for embroidery so long as they are simple flat designs. We can also embroider gradients but advise that the outcome usually isn't what is originally expected. See below for a visual representation of a logo before being digitized and after.
It is our procedure to send you proofs of your final custom embroidery before putting your job into our production queue.
Accepted File Formats
We accept the following types of files for your custom embroidery. Please note that JPEGS are not a working file type but our in house embroidery artist can digitize these file types for you.
Tajima EMB Format
Tajima CAM (computer aided manufacturing) file used by embroidery machines and software; stores instructions for stitching an embroidery design with a sewing machine.
Wilcom EMB Format
Embroidery format used by Wilcom embroidery software; contains designs shapes, and stitching patterns used for creating embroideries; can be read by compatible sewing machines.
JPEG is a commonly used method of lossy compression for digital images. These files can be digitized by our embroidery artist for a fee.
