The new unlimited color embroidery feature uses only white recycled polyester thread that’s colored during the embroidery process, without stopping and changing needles between colors. As this method differs from the one used for the standard embroidery, there are some additional design file guidelines you should take into account:
- Due to the unique thread coloring process, it’s impossible to switch to a new color without a smooth transition. When creating small embroidery designs, avoid complex designs with many colors and drastic color changes as the space might be too small to ensure the desired result.
- For all designs, we suggest that the smallest color element is at least 2cm wide so there is enough room to plan the color sequence.
- To ensure the best quality gradient designs, leave enough space for the gradient effect—gradient designs won’t look good in small areas.
- Avoid using run stitching, especially if your design has multiple colors. The unlimited color technology can’t produce consistent quality for the run stitching and the color change will be noticeable.
If there are any issues with your designs, our digitizers will make the necessary adjustments and put your order on hold to approve the changes with you.
