Each digitizer will immediately provide a flawless design. However, sometimes, in the sprint of the deadline, many professionals will eventually ignore certain elements. These elements usually include an unnecessary amount of pruning, too many color changes, inappropriate compensation, and so on. Although these elements are not prominent in the process of digitization, they have obvious errors at the production site. Such mistakes will not only result in wasted time and effort, but will eventually lead to customer irritations and eventually lead to customers completely losing them. This is why we came up with a list of the top 10 errors in digitization:
A lack of planning is a sure-shot exceptional of an amateur. What might look great on the screen, would not essentially work out on the production floor. For that reason, keeping an eye on lock stitches and trims jumps while pathing is critical.
When it comes to underlay, the saying ‘practice makes perfect’ is unconditionally befitting. Determining which underlay works best for which stitch type is something that comes with hit and trial that needs to be figured beforehand. No underlay or using the wrong style will only put you on the short route to disaster.
The compensation is what splits a weathered embroidery digitizer from the rest. You need to know how much is too much vs. too less vs. just right. Underprivileged compensation leads to distorted projects and visible underlay. When deciding on compensation, always endure in mind the fabric used, design elements, type of underlay and type of backing.
Unsuitable stitch density is another giveaway of lack of skill. Too high and you’ll have a thick design on hand, too less and you will risk fabric show-through. Comprehend how your design cooperates with the fabric to nail this one.
- Stitch Direction:
To provide any design with some pictorial interest and texture make sure not all your stitches are running in the same direction, this also helps loosen up the tension sewing puts on the fabric.
- Lock Stitches:
As soon as dealing with the sports material, jackets, jerseys, and knits, we advise putting in lock stitches so that design does not fall apart once complete.
- Stitch Type:
Every time select on the stitch type you will be using according to the external area it needs to cover. For instance, using a satin where you need a fill will result in loopy stitches, and a fill instead of a satin will create a dense, chunky patch.
Our advice to every embroidery digitizer out there is to always test run their design before sending it off, no matter how hard they’re pressed for time. This is the only opportunity you have to salvage the design and your reputation while avoiding the above pitfalls before it’s too late.
