What is Embroidery Digitizing?
Digitizing or Punching is the process of literally
converting artwork into a digital code that can be read
by today's computerized embroidery machines.
 
Original full-color, camera-ready artwork can be emailed
in vector (outline) format such as
Illustrator .eps, Freehand10 .fh, or generic .eps
 
Other file formats include
Photoshop .psd, Illustrator .ai,
Adobe Acrobat .pdf and generic .jpeg
 
Grayscale or outline artwork, which is Faxed,
can be used as a template.
 
A skillful digitizing artist imports the original files,
using highly specialized embroidery software
to create designs made up of thousands of stitches.
 
Stops, trims and color changes are programmed
into the design during digitizing.
 
Embroidery files are exported as encoded patterns,
which are then read by the sewing machine's hard drive.
 
This digital code provides instructions to the
embroidery machine's operating system which, in turn,
tells the embroidery machine how to sew the design.
 
Embroidery formats can only be opened with
compatible embroidery software, requiring a security key.
