Digitized file of ImageSmith Logo

Embroidery is the art of decorating fabric or other materials with designs stitched in strands of thread using a needle. A digitized file is created from a digital art file and carefully turned in to digital instructions for an embroidery machine. The digital instructions, also known as a .dst file, are carefully encoded with the number of stitches necessary for the fabric type the file will be stitched on to. We digitize to the fabric type.

ImageSmith offers custom embroidering, custom patches, embroidered patches, and applique.

Some common fabric types are:

  • Pique Twill (for caps)
  • Twill (for garments)
  • Fleece
  • Cotton Broadcloth
  • Denim, Oxford
  • Jersey Knit
  • Jersey Knit (Ribbed)
  • High-Performance Sport Knit
  • Sweater Knit
  • Polar Fleece
  • Corduroy
  • Corduroy for Caps

  • Microfiber
  • Heavyweight Nylon
  • Lightweight Nylon
  • PVC Rainwear
  • Terry Towel
  • Lycra
  • Ballistic Nylon (Luggage, Briefcases)
  • Leather
  • Canvas

The type of fabric and the size of the image determine the number of stitches in the digitized file. ImageSmith will estimate your embroidery project based on this number of stitches.
