Digitize an embroidery logo

Letter embroidery is common and a highly sought after service in the digitizing industry. The process has its requirements. This is because letters in hand embroidery are different from machine letter digitizing.
In this article, we will talk about all the letter digitizing techniques. To educate you in the best possible way, we will take you from start to finish.
Embroidery lettering technique
Embroidery is an art of making designs and patterns on fabric. Letter digitizing is a type of embroidery that is more complex than any other embroidery service. Let’s see the process!
Before making any design, there are some factors that we must take into account to avoid problems. The way you design will be the basis of your result. When creating embroidery lettering, the first step is to make sure you get the exact result on both the machines and the software. If you are a newbie, there is less chance of getting the same result.
For that, we have to play with the stitches and the size of the design. In some places you will need to downsize, in others do the opposite. But, it is not as easy as it may sound. Fabric stitching is a common problem for newbies. Even skilled digitizers must pay proper attention when stitching to avoid misery.
Draw a push line
Typically, the embroidery machine makes two excessive stitches at both the beginning and the end. For that, we have to draw a line at the top of the letter. Use the tool (input C). Left click and give it a value of almost 0.01 inch. The line is called “Pull Push Line”.
Merging the lines
Once we are done pulling the pull-push line at the top of the letter, we need to merge the lines. Select the combination option given in the upper right corner. Now (press G), the selected line will merge with the bottom line. It will merge into one line. By pressing G, we can also move or drag the line. However, we cannot edit the line.
