The Custom Embroidery Process
Many people can probably remember their grandmother hand embroidering designs on a dish towel, dress, or pillow. Hand embroidery is still a beautiful craft, but machine embroidery has enabled us to produce incredible work at an incredible pace. Here’s a peak behind the curtain at how custom machine embroidery works.
Step 1- Create Your Custom Design
You may already have a design, or you may just have an idea, whichever it is we can help you turn it into a reality. One of the most popular requests is our logo design embroidery. One thing to keep in mind when planning your custom embroidery design is how many colors you are including. Much like custom screen printing, the number of different colors adds to the complexity and cost of the project.
Step 2- Save Your Custom Design
We don’t need to get too deep into the weeds on this one, but there are many ways a design can be saved depending on the purpose it’s being used for. Most embroidery machines utilize a ‘DSB’ or ‘DST’ file format. These file formats help the embroidery machine understand what it’s looking at with your design. Don’t worry, we’ll help take care of that.
Step 3- Transfer the Design to the Embroidery Machine
Now that we have the design saved it’s time to get it transferred over to the embroidery machine. This is often done through a USB cable, flash card, or directly from the computer. Again, no need to worry. We’ve got this part all covered.
Step 4- Setup Final Details
With the design loaded into the embroidery machine there are a few instructions that the machine still needs before it can begin stitching your design. Those instructions include what type of needles are to be used, thread weight, and thread color. The smallest embroidery machines may only have one head and needle, while the largest embroidery machines can have up to 15 heads and a total of 570 needles! Typically, each needle on the machine holds one thread and color.
Step 5- Setup Your Product
This step is crucial to having a product turn out the way it was envisioned. Improper setup can easily produce an off-center design. There are different frames or loops utilized that your product is attached to depending upon the product that’s being embroidered, be it shirt embroidery, hat embroidery, or some other custom embroidery project. Once the product is secured it is loaded and secured to the arms of the embroidery machine. The head of the embroidery machine doesn’t actually move during this process, the arms do, guiding the product beneath the machine head as it stiches the design.
Step 6- Time to Embroider
Your design is complete, the machine understands what it’s supposed to be creating, and the product has been secured. Now comes the fun part as your design becomes a reality one stitch at a time!
The trained professionals at Gable Sporting Goods make this process look easy.
