The (commercial embroidery) machines are expensive and require a considerable amount of investment, all leading to the inevitable conundrum, whether to buy used embroidery machine or get a new one altogether.
Buying a new machine is the recommended option but what if the business owner is not able to do so for whatever reason or is technically apt enough to not need much to any assistance, buying a used embroidery machine for sale is the next best option. However, buying any used machine is not enough, one needs to go through a check list of sorts to make sure he/she is making the best possible purchase with these machines as they definitely are cheaper than the new ones, but still if their cons outweigh their merits, it would not help the business in the long run.
First thing to consider is how old the machine is? Embroidery machines have been evolving and upgrading as every other item of today so newer machines do have more options available and are easier to handle. Moreover, old, used machines might not be offering the particular options one might want to offer such as cap or 3D embroidery which is not offered by all the older embroidery machines. Furthermore, it brings the question of specifications like memory and software compatibility as a machine still working with software that works on far old windows like 2000 will serve no purpose as no one uses windows 2000 anymore. Additionally, the older the machine is, the more it is prone to breaking down and less effective the embroidery will be.
Are new or used embroidery equipment and parts for that specific machine even available? Machine manufacturers stop producing the parts if they do not consider them profitable anymore and so older model of used embroidery machines might not have the parts, new or used, readily available to be replaced if one of the parts in the machine is broken. Some companies do provide them as well but the cost should be considered again, is the cost of used machine low enough or part cheap enough to outweigh the cost of a new machine.
Some people may be technically proficient and might want to buy the used embroidery machine model they are comfortable with and have the digitizing software that works for it however, with the startups, with next to no experience with the embroidery process, cost might be doubled as they might have to purchase the software for digitizing as well (not necessary but recommended for greater efficiency and customization) which itself is quite expensive. One thing to note here is that every software is not accessible by every single machine so one cannot buy the cheapest software available and think it would work without making sure about the compatibility before buying it.
Even if a used embroidery machine is bought, will it include factory installation, as it is another technical aspect which everyone, especially newer startups, might not be able to perform themselves. External help can be hired for this part but the question of cost outweighing all the benefits from buying a newer machine is to be considered. Likewise, it is also imperative to consider whether the machine is still under factory warranty as it might be easier to get a replacement this way. If not, is the machine being bought through official, authorized agent of the machine brand as they can also provide their own warranties which would work fine as well. If still ‘No’ and owner is looking at options on outlets like Alibaba and Ebay, the risks of the endeavor are high enough to consider the proposition of buying a used embroidery machine in the first place.
In light of everything, it should be clear that buying a used embroidery machine is the riskier option than buying a newer one however if the cost of buying a used machine is justified in lieu of the questions raised above, it can be the better option for the business.
So many questions, so many problems! Why not be at ease and let the consummate professional at DigitEMB handle all of your digitizing and digital embroidery needs.
Embroidery fonts, with any sort of text, are an important part of the embroidery as most of the machine embroidery designs have some written element on it. Be it monograms, company logos or just a written motto or slogan of the brand, organization or even an individual.
Lettering in different fonts is a staple of the machine embroidery of today. People can buy the readily available applique embroidery fonts to sew onto the garment right away or free embroidery fonts digitized files to be utilized within their garment, which are available on the internet easily. However, like other embroidery files, these free embroidery font files are available in specific few extensions, which might not be suitable for everyone and also, changing even a single element with the font may lead to distortion in the overall design.
The cheapest available method is to download and use the Embroidery Fonts Plus software which is the only embroidery fonts free software available on the market. The software being free, is limited as it only provides 3 embroidery font styles but do provide features like density control, column width spacing among basic other features to tweak the embroidery a bit.
For more advanced options, one has to invest in the professional digitizing software. Most to all embroidery digitizing software comes with inbuilt fonts for embroidery, to work with and add onto the embroidery design easily, however the fonts are available in extremely limited styles. Only a few of the well-known styles are available which of course, can only be used in the same fashion they are already in. For more customized and different fonts for embroidery, digitizing in the most basic sense comes into play.
Any font, like any image, it is possible for it to be converted into embroidery font designs. Font image can be created from any capable software like Photoshop or CorelDraw, the software just needs to have the specific font, which can easily be sourced from the internet and added to the software. Once the font is acquired, its used and the text is typed in Photoshop/CorelDraw normally. For advanced designers, they can add design details to make it much more aesthetically pleasing as well or even to represent the brand or individuals take, if and as required. Once designed and saved, the text’s image is loaded into the digitizing software and digitized like every other image.
Fonts can be tricky at times as push/pull compensation comes into play for example, with curved alphabets like ‘e’, and especially in curls embroidery font, digitizer would have to compensate and increase the size a bit on the top and bottom as the surfaces are pulled in while with straight line alphabets like ‘i’ the embroidery would be pushed back a bit while digitizing as during the embroidery process, it pushes out on its own. With large embroidery fonts or small embroidery fonts, the compensation is certain to do. Applique embroidery fonts are also created, if wanted, so the designs can be embroidered on the fabric they were designed for but can also cut away and sewed/pasted onto other fabrics.

Embroidery prices can be described as being competitively priced, i.e. set in accordance with (to compete on the quality level), higher (to show superiority over their competitors with quality, quantity and other aspects) and lower (to set themselves as the more economical choice). Embroidery price for a readily available design on the web or from digital catalogues of digitizing businesses is significantly lower because the design is usually designed for the purpose of being a product for mass market and can be purchased by anyone willing to purchase and can be utilized by them in whatever way they desire. However, asking for something unique, custom embroidery pricing comes into play as then the price is dependent on the job/design. The intricacy of the design, the dimensions to work the design within and the time each project requires are a few of the elements used to determine the custom embroidery prices. Some businesses offer the option of faster design processing and delivered to the customer within the short time allotted however is again, higher priced, even more so then just ordinary customization.
Embroidery machines, the actual machines that embroider the digital embroidery designs onto the fabric, are expensive, even for the most basic models, hence most businesses only keep to digitizing, which itself is not a profession to be taken lightly in any way. Embroidery machine prices can be from $10,000 - $20,000 (some even higher), dependent on the brand itself, model and the features it provides. This is for the new embroidery machines prices and used ones are available for cheaper value but is another can of worms, discussed in detail here.
Embroidery machines are expensive as illuminated earlier, hence is mirrored in the price of the machine embroidered goods however, it is to be noted that machine embroidery products are still far more cost-effective than the products bought with hand embroidery on them. So with all said, it should be clear that pricing embroidery is not as cut and dry as one imagines it to be and a lot of planning and decision making goes into the process of pricing as well.

Make it your first and only digitizing providing option as well!
France is the country where modern fashion was born. With designers like Coco Chanel, Paul Iribe, and Jacques Doucet among many others, French fashion pioneered itself as being the ultimate when it comes to the art of dress making. Although the world has become a fashion oyster now, still the techniques and elements that started from the French sources are still as important as they were in the France’s fashion domination (still is, but Italy and American fashion has become more mainstream), one such element being the appliques, now used world over.
Embroidery is one of the staples of fashion and French fashion brought it to the fashion scene with their couture designs. American and London designers brought this to the more mainstream audience however embroidered clothes have always been expensive and only a few have ever been able to afford them.

People were able to attach these embroidery applique designs in their garments without having to get it done professionally which was and still is considerably expensive. These embroidery appliques are easy to apply and are available as both iron-on stickers, for those with no sewing experience, and sew-ons for those who are able to do so or have machines capable of performing that task.

Christmas is truly the most magical time of the year. Carolers going around the town spreading the Christmas cheer, families gathered around their TVs basking in all the beautiful programs produced for Christmas specially, drinking eggnog, mums preparing the Christmas dinner with everyone’s favorite trimmings, children still high on energy from the presents they received on Christmas Eve; all while the gentle snowflakes taps on the windows while falling on the ground, making the Christmas Day even more spectacular than it already is. The only element left to mention, of course, it is the delightful Christmas fashion and the exquisite and playful Christmas embroidery on it.
What people had in mind when they thought of Christmas fashion were the grandmothers knitted sweaters. Not anymore, the style and the world of fashion evolved and so did the Christmas fashion itself. While knitwear is still commonplace, considering that half of the world is winter bound during that time, the styles have become varied and everything seems to have motifs and characters representing Christmas embroidered on them. People with embroidering skills, make the Christmas embroidery designs onto the garments themselves, usually as gifts for their loved ones, usually using the conventional methods like using crewel embroidery Christmas stocking kits or either by downloading Christmas embroidery patterns and those with embroidery machines download and embroider free Christmas embroidery designs (or paid), from the internet, to aid them in the embroidery process. However, those with less time available to do so or wanting to do the process more efficiently, take solace in the effortlessness and ease provided by the digital embroidery
Christmas is not the only occasion though, people go crazy for digital embroidery on many other occasions like Easter, New Year’s, Birthday and any and every possible occasion they want to celebrate. So if you have the need for Christmas or any other event based (or just normal) embroidery needs, make DigitEMB your one and only stop shop for anything related to digitizing and machine embroidery.
