Step 2-Digitizing The embroidery process begins with an idea or a piece of artwork. That artwork then has to be “digitized”. Digitizing is a specialized process that converts 2 dimensional artwork into stitches or thread. The digitizer has to actually recreate the artwork using stitches, meaning, the digitizer is programming the sewing machine to sew a specific design, in a specific color, with a specific type of stitch. This is the process known as digitizing.
Step 3-Production Once the artwork has been digitized, we move into production. Production embroidery is a hands on process and can be very time consuming. Before the sewing can begin, thread colors must be hand loaded into the machines. A spool of thread for each color in the artwork must be loaded. The machine itself is programmed by the operator to sew the design in a particular color sequence and a particular sewing speed. Individual garments must then “hooped” individually, again by hand, and then loaded into the machine. Once the design has completed sewing, the garment is taken off the machine, un-hooped, and then sent to the next step in the production process.
Step 4-Quality Control and Finishing After the garments have been sewn, they go through a final quality control process. During this step, the garments are inspected for quality, individually trimmed of excess backing material and excess threads, then folded and packaged ready for shipping to the end user.
