Enlargement of Fishing Boat


Digitizing is the act of entering digital data (point by point with a digitizing tablet or by scanning the design) into a computer and then defining the data to represent stitch types, stitch directions, density settings and machine efficiency.

The digitizer (also known as a puncher) creates a map which the embroidery machine follows to get from starting point to ending point.

Many different roads can be taken to get from start to finish. Each digitizer will have a different point of view when approaching a design.
