Digitising is the art of converting a picture or image into stitches by using specialised software and must be done to prepare the garment for embroidery. At Hamilton's we use either of the industry standards should you have a preference (Wilcom or TES/EOS from Barudan).
Digitising at Hamilton's is done completely in house by our experienced staff, ensuring an excellent result. We are on hand for any advice you may want in placement, artwork or design.
Embroidery & Print
Embroidery is an elegant and stylish way to decorate or personalise any garment or embroidery friendly item.
The digitised image is saved on disk and loaded to the embroidery machine. The machine uses the digital instructions to create your design with threads. The number of stitches that the machine needs to make, the quantity of items being embroidered, and the location of the embroidery determines the embroidery cost.
Any design that will need more than just keyboard lettering will have to be digitised. Digitising is the process of taking an image of your logo and converting into stitches using specialised software developed especially for the embroidery industry. Refer to our Digitising section to learn more on digitising.
A monogram is a motif made by overlapping or combining two or more letters to form one symbol. Monograms are often made by combining the initials of an individual or a company, used as recognisable symbols or logos.
Monograms can be added to dress shirts, towels, bathrobes, napkins, handkerchiefs, or bags.
You can purchase these items from us or you can bring your own for monogramming.
