How To Avoid Unequal Letterings Of Satin Stitch?
When you see an embroidery design, what do you see first? Well, when I see an embroidery design, I try to see the edge and the equals of objects. Especially if I get an embroidered logo with satin stitch letterings, I see the equals among them at edge first. That’s because a lot of time I saw that the satin letterings aren’t equaled at the edge in all designs. So, when I digitize an embroidery design, I follow some special tricks to make them equal. Let’s see how you can avoid unequal letterings of satin stitches after embroidered.
When I was a learner of the computerized embroidery digitizing, I was not aware of this. And most of the time I was thinking why it’s happening. I cross-checked the design on my computer. But it was okay there. I have taken a scale and check in the design but I didn’t see any equals problems. But when I send the design to the machine and the machine does the embroidery, and then the problem is coming. So, I was really shocked about why this is happening and what the reason is.
Why it’s Important To Know How To Avoid Unequal Letterings Of Satin Stitch?
After a lot of struggling with that, one day I have got an expert who gave me some ideas about why the problem or error happens from the machine. His explanation was like this he said:
When a machine goes horizontally with satin stitch, it pulls the fabric from both sides. So, it’s become a little shorter in that side. And when a machine goes vertically with satin stitch then goes a little upwards due to the pressure of the needle fit.
So, after that, we have decided to make the vertical lines little shorter than the horizontal lines. Then we tried this accordingly and we succeed. You can also do the same to avoid this kind of problem with letterings. You can keep them 0.3 to 0.5 MM shorter than the horizontal lines. Then after the embroidery, your design will be perfect at the edge. It’s a simple but very useful trick for those who don’t know why this kind of issue happens after embroidery.
