Embroidery differs from Direct-to-Garment printing or Sublimation printing, therefore, there are some basic rules which you need to take into account before creating your designs. 

  • Minimum thickness for shapes:
    0.05” (1.3 mm)
  • Maximum thickness for shapes:
    0.5” (12.5 mm)
  • Lowercase letter height from:
    0.25” (6.4 mm)
  • Uppercase letter height from:
    0.3” (7.6 mm)
  • Gradients, blend effects and pictures are not supported;
  • Use Solid Shapes and Colors;
  • There are 16 thread colors that are used. Please find the full list here;
  • Try to aim for 300 dpi and use at least 1200x720 pixels;
  • Only PNG with transparency or JPG files can be used;
  • Simplify the design as much as you can. The best result can be achieved if the design is simple.
