One of the questions that get thrown around the forum is “which is the best Embroidery digitizing company?”. This question comes up now and then, I am amazed that no one has answered it before, or even when people answer they keep recommending the same old couple of companies. So taking everyone’s betterment into account we thought of putting together a list of the best digitizing companies in the USA. However, the question pops up in my mind: why would one need to hire outsource services when there are plenty of “auto digitization” converting machines and plenty of good designs available online.
Why Do You Require Embroidery Digitizing Services?
If you are starting your own embroidery business or already running one. You might have thought that most of the orders you will be getting would be of school uniforms and random embroidery designs. However, the corporate demand for embroidered sportswear and uniforms is huge and eventually one of your clients would ask you to take care of one of those unique embroidered clothes.
In a lot of businesses across the USA embroidered polos are considered workplace uniforms. Often companies would have their employees wear shirts or t-shirts with their logo imprinted or stitched on them. Whilst you will be able to digitize some files by yourself more often than not you will need help from outside to turn the artwork into a complete masterpiece. At times even sports teams and schools would like their items embroidered relevant to their organizations.
Why Would You Want To Embroider Unique Logos?
Landing corporate customers means long-term contracts for embroidery organizations and services. Often companies have a bigger budget for getting items embroidered than individuals. This also means that companies would require you to do the same job again, hence potential ongoing revenue. This revenue can become a deciding factor whether you are going to make big in the service industry business.
Regardless of the aforementioned facts. Corporate clients are easily manageable and come with plenty of time in their hands. Instead of the dad who asks zillion questions and will point out every minor detail for you as it is your first time completing the job and to top it, all the high maintenance dad would need right away! Do not get me wrong some of our best clients are individual clients, however, the probability of you getting a headache while working for an individual is far more than working for a corporate client.
On the other hand, getting a contract or landing a job of a hundred t-shirts from a corporate client means you get the sample right and it is game on from there. Plus a hundred t-shirts means a lot more cash than one individual printed shirt.
Unlike an individual client’s cute birthday t-shirt whose design can be purchased. Corporate clients would ask you to design custom logos for them. Something unique that delivers the message and the motto of their firm. Often corporate clients come with their custom logos. That only makes the job harder, since customizing them for embroidery while keeping every detail in mind takes years of hands-on experience. Often finding digitizers with this much experience is a hard job.
Digitization Of Logo And Its Importance
Corporate companies often get their logos done on a vector program. Which allows them to get it printed on a smaller scale such as on a business card and something as large as a billboard. This is possible because on vector programs designs are saved as mathematical equations. you change one detail and everything gets altered proportionally. Making the result as real and clear as it gets. Most designers use Adobe illustrator for the vectorization or creation of logo design and the files are not usually in machine-friendly formats (eps or AI). The formats that the machines can not incorporate, they can not print.
Thus, For a logo to be embroidered perfectly it has to be digitized and converted in a language that a machine can understand. For a machine to weave the design perfectly it needs some additional details i.e stitch counts, density, color and order of stitching, and much more.
And you might think there is some auto digitizing software out there but the result is just satisfactory and often ends up increasing the manual intensity of the design. (removing the wrong stitches). Nonetheless, in any case, a good digitizer should be able to do a remarkable job with it.
