23 May Introduction: Embroidery
Embroidery is a method which uses needle and thread to decorate fabric and apparel. Embroidery of logos or artwork provides a high perceived value and is long lasting as the colours do not fade easily. Understanding the limitations of embroidery is important in creating a professional looking logo on apparel such as cotton honeycomb polo tees and button shirts.
The first step in embroidery of logos is to digitise the soft copy image of the logo. Digitising refers to creating a file which the embroidery machine can understand which allows it to process and create a well embroidered logo. Through the digitising process, the digitiser will make adjustments to the file to ensure the details such as small text will be embroidered nicely and easy to read.
At Ark Industries, we use high quality Madeira thread for our embroidery jobs. Using our Barudan and Tajima embroidery machines, we strive to create top notch embroidery for our customers. Choose from a wide range of thread colours to match them to your logos or artwork. Once the thread colours are chosen, the machine will be set up with the respective thread cones to create the first embroidery sample.
The digitiser will examine the embroidered sample to determine how the soft copy digitising file can be adjusted to improve on the embroidery. The density of stitches and the direction of how the stitches run are some factors in contributing to the overall quality of the embroidered logo or artwork. The embroidered outcome should look full and well shaped.
