Does the number of colors used for Embroidery affect prices?


What Is Digitizing for Embroidery?

We scan your logo or design that you want embroidered and use it as a background in order to create the stitching patterns. By creating these stitching patterns we can then see how your design should look, we review it and stitch out the design to make sure it is of the best quality, and then based on the way the design stitches out we make any necessary changes to make sure you have a top notch design. After we make the necessary changes to your design we compare it to the original art and client specifications to ensure we've captured the essence of the image and decide what further work is needed to artistically showcase all 3 dimensions that embroidery adds to your piece. We repeat this process until we feel it will meet our highest standards and then show it to you, our client. We then would seek the approval of our client. Once our clients approve the stitch out of the design we begin the order process.

What type of artwork is need to start this process?
