If You're Still Digitizing, You Need To Read This Now!

If you're still embroidery digitizing I'm guessing you either enjoy it or feel as if you have no other choice available to you. The very process of plotting or punching points (also known as nodes) can be very time consuming and become a tedious job. Once you've completed a complex or intricate piece of artwork, it's only natural to feel a sense of pride for a job well done!

I can remember as far back as 1982, when personal computers were just beginning to be introduced into the Awards & Engraving industry. Digitizing was painful! This was long before the development of computer aided design (CAD) software. All drawings had to be created from beginning to end with no mistakes or you had to start all over from the very beginning. You sure didn't want the phone to ring or have a customer come through your door while in the middle of any drawing!!

A few years later we were blessed with CAD programs that enabled you to digitize logos and images much faster. Using software commands to create vectors, curves, ovals, arcs and numerous other short cut keys, allowing you to improve your work and in many cases enhancing the original artwork. Certainly one of the coolest things was being able to stop, save your work and pick up where you left off at another time. As computers became more and more popular, hardware and software progressed quite rapidly. It wasn't long before people were talking about scanning and converting their raster files into vector formats. Many individuals retired their digitizing pads and began the on screen clean up process, believing this was their salvation from the point to point digitizing. To me it was much easier and faster to continue to use CAD software and turn out a drawing that was much cleaner, with fewer points and maintained a much smaller file size. Most digitizers were (and are) concerned about the overall byte size of the finished logo. This was greatly due to the limitations of numerous proprietary systems.

So I pose the question to you, why don't you hire someone else to do your digitizing? Choose a respectable service and send your artwork to the professionals for digitization. With technology as advanced as it is today, you can email (or fax) your logo to the pros and have it back within 24 hours (two business days for some). This creates a win-win situation for all parties involved in the process. You win by saving time and money, not to mention the mental challenges that may arise should you continue to do everything in house. Your customer wins as well! They receive a top quality reproduction of their artwork in a digital format. This could and should open up more avenues for you to lock in their business for life.
