Secondly we order the blocks. Indeed, stitch order is a surprisingly important design element.
Actually, an experienced digitizer can use stitch order to avoid fabric stress as well as balancing the push and pull. Thus the design won't distort and the fabric will lay flat. On the other hand, a poorly digitized design will often cause wrinkles and puckering.
Thirdly, we manually control the stitch settings for each individual block.
For instance , base layers of fill stitch need different underlay than top layers. While some satin stitches will need extra width or density. Maybe others will need sharp corners or tapered edges. In this regard we control all the settings on all the blocks.
For example, stitch angles of neighboring blocks are adjusted to compliment each other. Hidden running stitches are used to connect distant stitch blocks. At the same time we test for overlapping lock stitches and realign exit points to avoid jumps. And meanwhile, the design gets e-stitched , over and over again.
Finally , we are ready to stitch the design at machine.
Ultimately, machine stitching proves the overall compensation effects of the combined stitch blocks. No doubt this will vary from machine to machine. And also from fabric to fabric. Accordingly, we test for a median value using a woven polyester with cut away backing.
When at last the design is proven and perfected, we go ahead and make all the sizes. Most importantly here, we control and optimize anew for each individual size. Because optimal settings vary considerably across design sizes.
It is this fine attention to detail which makes our digitizing process so reliable. And thus, makes your stitch results so dependable.
