This complex technique adds a luxurious softness to embroidered designs and can add an iridescent feeling due to the three dimensionality.

THE PROCESS

Embroidery can feel a little complicated, but we're here to make it simple!

There are 3 steps to starting your project.

1. Submitting your art for approval. As a rule of thumb, the cleaner the art the better the final product will match your expectations. You can email or upload your art right here!

2. Work with a branding expert to decide the best course for your project. Should you use Foam, Applique or Classic Embroidery? We'll help you decide.

3. Confirm your sample. We will forward you a sample of your project before stitching begins. This lets you review the size, color, and positioning of your project.

TURNING YOUR ART INTO EMBROIDERY

VECTORIZING

Vectorizing is an essential step to creating good embroidery. A vector is a type of digital file typically used in logo design, and it's the foundation we use to make your embroidery file. If you already have a vector file for your design you can skip ahead by sumbitting the .AI or .SVG file, in some cases even a clean high
resolution .JPEG or .PNG will suffice.

digitizing

STITCH FILES

In order to run your design on an embroidery machine the location, density, speed, and angle of each stich as well all the trim points and thread changes need to be plotted using specialty software. The industry term for this is "Digitizing". Good digitizing usually makes the difference between good embroidery and a messy tangle of threads, but don't worry, our hand picked team of digitizers have years of experience making designs shine.

SAMPLING

Now that your stitch file has been made, it's time for quality control and review. We want you be sure you'll love your custom SWAGTEX embroidery, and that's why we make you part of the process. We'll use specialized software to interpret your newly made stitch file and create a virtual mockup of the finished design for you to review for size, color and positioning.

(Optional) Vectorizing: 

Embroidery requires a vectored digital design to begin. If you have ready to go art files you can skip this step. If you have a photograph of a physical item to copy, a sketch, or just a dream, we can help you turn your vision into a reality.

ART FEE -  $24.99 (per hour)

The art fee for vectorizing is 24.99 an hour, with nearly all designs being completed in a single hour. This step is not required if you already have vector files of your artwork.

Stitch File Set Up: 

Even if your design was created on a computer, a specialty "digitized" stitch file needs to be made so it can run on an embroidery machine. Good digitizing takes your design and choice of garment into account when setting the speed, direction, and density for each stich in the image.

digitizing art

ART FEE -  $24.99

Digitizing is required for all designs except text only designs under 5" x 5". Your artwork will be stored in our database for future projects. It's important to note that digitizing is size dependant, so the same logo will have to be digitized separately for a 3" and a 6" application.


Embroidery Fees

The cost of your project is determined by the amount of time and material used by our machines. Remember to add the cost of your garment when considering the total price, or bring your own item to one of our locations and turn it into a one of a kind work of art!
