Lettering needs to be a certain height in order to read clearly once the text is embroidered. Lettering that seems fine on a printout or on screen may still be too small to translate to stitching, and product an illegible mess when embroidered! The minimum height of lettering is .2 inches tall – this is generally about a 20-22 point font size on screen. Keep in mind that ht height minimum applies to the smallest letters. So if we were to embroider the name “GEORGE” in all capitals, each letter needs to meet the height minimum of .2″ tall. The test would need to be 20 point to meet this minimum. However, if we want to embroider “George” with small letters and a capital G, the small letters need to meet the height minimum as well – so we must increase the font size now to 27 points. This produces a slightly larger design. Therefore, if we wish to keep the lettering as small as possible, it is wise to stitch in all capital letters to keep the width of the final design to a minimum. NOTE: Font sizes will vary between different font style/faces, do not use the font size numbers given here as set-in-stone rules but rather as general guidelines. Here you can see the text starts to fill in. 11pt is the smallest embroidery font. But you can see it’s not the clearest, and will look better or worse on different materials.
Embroidery Digitizing – The deal with embroidery vs. every other printing method, is that you can’t convert logo into the digitized format easily. So you have to outline the text for instance in the embroidery software and then tell it were you want the stitches to be. Lets say a “T” has to be cut into two parts, because you want the stitching one direction on the “I” and the other direction on the “–”. This becomes time consuming for the initial setup. Also with paper printing you can print extremely fine detail. With embroidery you are limited. If you have too many stitches (detail) in a certain area, the thread will usually break because it’s going on top of each other and gets “too tight”. Your garment can also start to pucker in these area.
