Step 1: Logo/Artwork Preparation (Digitising)
As part of our embroidery service, we will review your artwork or logo to determine if some lines or shapes have to be enlarged or thickened in order for it be translated well unto the apparel. Our team will then digitise the logo to plan out the stitches to allow the embroidery machine to create the embroidery. There are a number of stitch types, such as the full stitch, satin stitch and running stitch. Our digitiser will select the most suitable stitch type for the logo/artwork at this stage
Step 2: Embroidery Sampling
Once the digitising file is ready, we will run it first to create an embroidery sample to ensure the logo or artwork is translated nicely. At the sampling stage, our team will ensure that the stitches are suitable for the fabric type of the apparel. Different fabrics with varying properties such as elasticity and stiffness, will affect the look of the embroidery. Colours of the thread can be changed to match it accurately to the original logo or artwork reference.For small text and graphic elements, stitches have be tweaked in the digitising software further and a cut piece embroidery sample will need to be made again to ensure that the embroidery is neatly done.
Step 3: Production Line
Once the sample has been shown and approved by the customer, we will run the embroidery machines to create the final embellished apparel. Our QC manager will check each finished product to ensure that it is up to our stringent standards.
