Embroidery digitizing is the process of converting existing artwork like a company logo, team emblem or a picture, into a stitch file that an embroidery machine can read so it can sew onto a garment. Before any design can be embroidered, it must be digitized.

Digitizing is a complex process that is both art and science, it takes into account the direction of the stitches, order of stitches, thickness of stitches and even the type of stitches. Digitizing is usually done manually in person on a computer, just like AutoCAD or Photoshop. An experienced digitizer would exercise the clever use of light and the direction/type of stitches to give a more 3d and professional effect. Our digitizers are artists not just computer operators.

The quality of an embroidery is only limited by the quality of the digitizing.

Digitizing is usually referred to as setup. The following table shows our setup charge for the different artwork required - independent of size. 

          Type of artwork to be Digitized


                         Text only


                         Simple logo


                         Simple logo + text


                         Complex logo +/text

     from   £30.00

If you already have artwork digitized and want to embroider only - no problem - we can put it straight through to our embroidery machine.

Embroidery work is charged depending on size and starts from £3.00 for just 1 badge. The more embroidered badges required the cheaper it gets - please complete the form below if you require an accurate quote for embroidery.
