Embroidery Tips for a Commercial Embroidery Business

Embroidery Tips for a Commercial Embroidery Business

Embroidery Tip:

Sewing on Bridal Satin

1. Wrap your outer hoops with foam athletic tape (does not leave marks on fabric and you can purchase at your local pharmacy) this is a prewrap tape for athletes
2. Smallest needle should be used and make it a sharp (65/9)
3. Never use edge walk pr zig zag underlay, the more needle penetrations the more your fabric will shred and run.
4. Lighten up your density. This fabric has an extremely high thread count per inch, and is not necessary to use a heavy density to keep stitches up. (4.1 pts and and higher)
5. Never use solvy or solu fab, this will water mark your fabric.
6. Last use steam to press, never an iron.



Embroidery Tip:

When Do I “Right Click” in DesignShop?
Here are three examples of when to use the right mouse button in DesignShop.

1. Right Click on any tool selection to determine it’s properties prior to it’s use.
Example: Point to the Walk Normal tool button. Then Right Click on the button. Now you can setup it’s properties for future use in digitizing.
2. Right Click in a blank area of the Tree View Window to change the size of the element images.
Example: After pointing to any blank area of the Tree View Window and right clicking, select Tree Image Size. Another window will popup that gives you the sizes to choose from. (Good Tip for those of you who have trouble seeing the images in the tree.)
3. Right Click after you have digitized an element. Now you have the digitizing tools quicker than selecting them from the tool bar menu. Example: Digitize a Walk Normal stitch. Hit enter to complete the element, then Right Click to access all of your digitizing tools in a popup window. This will save you the steps of leaving the digitizing session to grab a tool from the menu bar.



Embroidery Tip:

Small Letters
Do you have problems sewing out small letters? If so here are some tips to help make small letters look better.

1. In DesignShop you must refer to the code sheets to see what alphabets can be sewn small. Most closest point alphabets can be sewn smaller than the non -closest point alphabets.

For example to sew small letters from .30 and below, follow the following suggested parameters:
Stitch Length: 15 points
Horizontal Spacing: 0.02-0.03
Column Width: 120%
Density: 4.0 - Do not use Auto Density
Short Stitches: Off
Underlay: Center Walk, Stitch Length: 15 points



Embroidery Tip:

Saving Styles
Did you know that saving styles in DesignShop could be a big help for your business? Saving styles can eliminate trying to remember what parameter settings previously used. For example to save the Small lettering tip to a style you just do the following:

1. Go into the lettering parameter box in DesignShop.
2. Set the alphabet to be used, for example Open Block looks very clean small, so we will use it as an example.
3. Select Open Block font style, set the height to .30 and follow the parameters suggested for small letters and click on the Style button in DesignShop. Type Small Letters as the file name, click on save.
4. The next time you sew small letters just simply go to the Style button, click on the drop down arrow to select the Small Letter style previously saved.
5. All the settings are now back to be used again.
6. Your saved styles can also be stored on a floppy diskette and removed from your hard drive.
7. Just simply go to the Styles sub folder under the DesignShop folder.



Embroidery Tip:

Poly Mesh or Nylon Mesh Backing
To avoid the unsightly patch of backing visible through the white or light knit shirt, try using this exceptional backing. Instead of cutaway, use two sheets of the Mesh backing placed in opposite directions. You will not be able to see the backing through the shirt.
