Embroidery is calculated from the size of the design and the composition of the stitches. Together they create the key number, stitch count. The stich count indicates the amount of time that takes to sew each design. The lower the stitch count, the lower the cost because it takes less time to sew.
Designs are prepaid for the embroidery application by passing through a process called “digitizing.” Digitizing determines stick types and directions to create the most pleasant result possible, using the stick types and angles themselves to enhance the design.
