Digitising

Sew Impressive are now pleased to offer a digitising service to supplement our embroidery portfolio. Embroidery digitising (or punching) is the process of converting artwork into data containing commands that tell an embroidery machine frame how to move through the machine operating system. The word punching actually comes from the traditional jacquard embroidery machines which ran by reading paper tapes with holes punched through them, these little holes represented code that the machine could interpret and move the machine frame accordingly.

Nowadays, punching is perfomed on a computer by using embroidery digitising software to recreate a design into a code which the machines can read. This commonly involves working from a bitmap image (such as JPEG,BMP or GIF) ,the design is then created in a way to ensure smooth running of the machine by keeping colour changes and thread trims to a minimum.

We give fast estimates, offer quick turnaround times and can supply a wide range of design formats to accommodate your embroidery needs.
The formats include EMB, Tajima, Barudan, ZSK, Toyota, Pfaff, Happy, Husqvarna and PES.* The list is not exhaustive - if you don't see what you need, please ask.
