Embroidery Company in Central WisconsinVector artwork isn’t necessarily required for embroidery, but it is still usually a good choice. The reason for this is because any artwork file provided for embroidery has to go through an additional process called digitizing. This conversion process takes the artwork from a format for the computer and turns it into a file that the embroidery machine can read and then use as instruction for the stitching. Digitizing can be accomplished just as well with a clear raster file such as a JPEG as it can with vector-based artwork. However, this does not mean that all JPEGs or bitmap files are good for embroidery. If the image is too small or too blurry, then the digitizing will be off, then the embroidery will not look good.

Sometimes it is best to take raster artwork and add in the step of converting it to vector artwork before digitizing the file for embroidery. Sometimes it is just what we have to do to ensure the highest quality stitching. Once the file is digitized, it is ready to be embroidered on your products.


Screen Printing

Screen printing is a method of creating an image on fabric or some other object by pressing ink through a screen with areas blocked off by a stencil. The technique is used both for making fine art prints and for commercial applications, such as printing a company’s logo on shirts.
