What embroidery editing software do you recommend?

We *highly* recommend Embrilliance Essentials Embroidery Software. It is user friendly and you can use our BX format fonts as "typable" fonts! There is a free "Express" version available for JUST typing monograms and fonts. You cannot use the free version to merge, customize or edit. 

We highly recommend purchasing and owning some kind of embroidery editing software for maximum versatility. Please see our YouTube channel for numerous videos on how we use Embrilliance.

What software do you use to create your designs?

We use a variety of quality digitizing software packages to create designs, depending upon the desired effect. All designs are 100% manually digitized and tested as many times as necessary to provide you with the highest quality possible.

Can I resize your designs?

You may resize our designs in your embroidery editing software, but we do not recommend resizing more than 10-20% in either way in order to maintain the integrity of the design. We are UNABLE to do any custom resizing. Please note that if you choose to resize our designs, you do so at your own risk. We only guarantee the quality of the designs in the sizes we provide. We highly recommend doing a test stitch of an altered design before embroidering it on a valuable item.

We do NOT recommend resizing sketch designs at all - most programs do not recalculate the variable density accurately, resulting in gaps and/or thick stitching. Please stitch any design with sketch elements at original size only. We also do NOT recommend resizing In-the-Hoop projects - many elements are sized/spaced in a specific manner.

If you are looking for excellent embroidery editing software that is versatile and affordable, we HIGHLY recommend Embrilliance Essentials Software. You can also use our BX fonts with it!

Why doesn't my embroidery design match the color chart sequence?

It is very important that you become proficient in the embroidery software that you use. Some embroidery editing programs, such as Premier+, Pfaff Creative and Mysewnet, have an automatic feature checked by default to "color sort" your designs in an effort to be more "efficient". This can come in handy for your work... at times. This is NOT a good idea when you have purchased quality, manually digitized embroidery designs such as ours. Why? We digitize and path our designs in a particular sequence ON PURPOSE for efficiency, stitch count, and sequence.

EXAMPLE: The color "red" may be used more than one time in your design. The color sort feature may group all the reds together in one step. You do NOT want the "reds" grouped together because one part may need to stitch AFTER other parts. "Color sorting" can potentially mess up your sequence of purchased designs. This is especially true with applique designs and In-the-Hoop project files.

If you are scratching your head wondering why the design sequence on your machine does NOT match our instructions, it's likely that it was brought through a software program such as this that had this feature checked.

When you open your design in your software, PRIOR to exporting the design to stitch on your machine, please make sure that any "color sort" feature is UNchecked. You will also want to make sure "remove overlaps" is UNchecked as well because that could break important placement/tackdown lines that are under a satin stitch for instance.

Here is a screenshot for the Premier software:

Please note, as agreed to in our terms and conditions:
All designs are test stitched prior to being listed for sale and are guaranteed in the sizes we have provided. We do not guarantee your stitch out for designs that have been resized, edited, merged or brought through software programs that may alter the settings of the design. (Example: software programs that color sort (change the stitch sequence) by default, remove overlaps, etc.) Our designs are MANUALLY digitized for efficiency, stitch count, and sequence. If you choose to use embroidery editing software to open, edit, merge and export a design, it is YOUR responsibility to know your software. We are unable to provide support for your software should a problem arise due to too many variables in all of the software programs.
