WHAT IS DIGITIZING?
Quality Digitizing makes for Creative embroidery. It can take a plain design and make it special. Digitizing artwork for machine embroidery is very different than digitizing graphics for printing. For embroidery the digitizer not only picks shapes and colors, he chooses or creates textures and blends thread colors to create 3 dimensional looks. We do custom embroidery and digitizing on all types of garments.
