SAMPLE OF CUSTOM DIGITIZING

(shown with original image provided by client)

I do my best to capture the spirit of the original image, within the technical limitations of embroidery. This design is very complex, and the client chose a large (8") size so I was able to incorporate the fine details that would not have been possible in a smaller size.Please scroll down to the bottom of the page to see a gallery of additional designs alongside the illustrations supplied by the clients.

HOW TO ORDER

  1. Before placing your order, please send me a query first, with a copy of the image or logo that you wish to have digitized.  Due to the technical limitations of the embroidery process, not everything can be digitized successfully, especially in a small size. In particular, fine lines and tiny lettering do not digitize well, so please keep this in mind if your logo includes a small-print slogan.
  2. Please note: I will need a legible image. It doesn't have to be perfect, but it must be large enough and clear enough so that I can see the details that need to be recreated. It isn't part of the digitizing process so doesn't need to be vector art or print-ready; a simple jpg is good enough as long as it is clear enough to make out the details. Price doesn't include re-drawing artwork.
  3. Once we have agreed on the image to be digitized, return to this page and complete your order by purchasing the design size you need. I will get to work on your custom design once payment has been received through paypal.
  4. Turn-around time from receipt of payment is usually 3 business days, depending on the complexity of the design. You will receive your design file plus color-change information via e-mail attachment.
  5. Please indicate desired embroidery format in the "Shipping Instructions" field on the PayPal checkout page, or let me know by e-mail. You will receive your designs by e-mail attachment when the work is complete.
  6. Custom digitizing is painstaking and time-consuming work, and in most cases I will require 3 working days to produce a quality design; if it's very complex or if I have a lot of custom work on the go it may take up to 5 days but I will let you know if this is the case.

A WORD ABOUT PRICING

You may wonder why custom designs cost more than the lovely stock designs you can buy off the shelf from the large embroidery companies.

The answer is simple: time and skill.

Digitizing well is a painstaking process, and a good digitizer puts in many hours of work on every design, whether it's a "stock" design for the site or a custom piece for a single customer. Stock designs that serve a larger audience can -- potentially, at least -- repay the digitizer for the time it takes to make them, whereas a custom design can be sold only one time and typically is of no interest to anyone except the original purchaser.

To create a typical design I spend an average of 18-25 hours. Think for a second about what you would earn in that interval at your job. (Minimum wage for unskilled workers is currently more than $10 per hour where I live; skilled workers earn more. Even at minimum wage, 20 hours' work would net me $200 before taxes.)

Now consider that digitizing even a relatively simple design requires a very high level of skill that takes years to master; in most jobs, the equivalent skill would be decently remunerated. Yet a 4" custom design that takes me 20 hours to produce would sell for $34 -- about $1.70 per hour, and that's without factoring in expenses such as equipment, internet access, website fees, and paypal's transaction fees.

This is why the large companies don't do custom work -- it's just not worth their while and would soon put them out of business.

PLEASE NOTE:  I CANNOT BEGIN DIGITIZING CUSTOMIZED DESIGNS UNTIL PAYMENT IS RECEIVED. ONCE WE HAVE AGREED ON THE LOGO YOU'D LIKE USED, COMPLETE YOUR ORDER USING "BUY NOW" BUTTONS ABOVE.

NEED YOUR CUSTOM DESIGN IN A LARGER OR SMALLER SIZE?

Not all designs will stitch successfully when re-sized on home software, but many can be re-digitized to a larger or smaller size -- in some cases, a design can be made as small as 1" and as large as 6x10" or more. If you would like to obtain your custom design in one of these or another specialty size, please send me a query by e-mail and I'll be happy to help you out.
