lll FAQ : Frequently Asked Questions
There are three basic stitch types that are used for all embroidery

- Running

Running stitches or walk stitches are single line stitches which run one stitch between two needle penetration point. A running stitch goes from point A to point B. They are used for very fine detail and also for underlay. There are different variations of run stitches such as two-ply and bean. A two-ply stitch is a running stitch that goes from point A to point B and then goes back from point B to point A and stops. A bean stitch is a running stitch that goes from point A to point B and then goes back from point B to point A and then goes forward from point A to point B. The differences are in the thickness of the different variations.

- Satin
Satin stitches are nothing more than zigzag stitches. A satin stitch can range in thickness from just over 1mm to usually a maximum of 12mm. A satin stitch is normally used for nice detail and for most normal size lettering.

- Fill
A fill stitch is used to cover a large area in a design. Fill stitches are a series of running stitches aligned together to create a solid area of coverage in the design. Fill stitches can be aligned to create patterns or they can change direction to provide different effects from within the design. In addition to different stitch types, the other factor a digitizer has to deal with is density, stitch directions and stitch lengths. The stitch directions and stitch lengths enable the digitizer to create different effects with the stitch types just described. The density refers to stitches per inch. The greater the density, the more stitches will be used within that defined area. A good technique for a digitizer to use is a greater amount of underlay to stabilize the material and allow for less density to be used in the particular segment of the design.

Most of the editing is free, except adding new part to the original logo we have done or you change your introduction that need us to re-digitize, such as adding lettering, background, and we only charge the stitches for the extra part.
12. Can you digitize for 3D puff, patches and appliqué?
Yes, we can. We are highly proficient at all three. You can see samples by clicking here .
13. Do you sell your stock designs?
The digitized design is the customer's property. Therefore Champ Digitizing keeps these designs strictly confidential. We never convey customer's designs to others. Also, we have a reliable backup storage to keep your designs in case your copies become lost. Upon request, we can resend them to you within one hour.
14. Can I use a logo you sent me for a left chest on a full back?
No. When a file is digitized it is turned into a series of points (x,y) that make up one stitch to another. If you take a file made up of 5,000 stitches that is meant for a left chest and try to use the same 5,000 points but stretch them over a much larger area, your points will be too far apart causing baggy stitches and there will not be nearly enough to cover two or 3 times the area. The same is true for the opposite if you take a design made up of 15,000 stitches and try to jam them into a small 3.5"x3.5" area you will end up with a giant knotted mess.
15. Can I switch the colors in the design from the colors you sent to me?
Yes. The embroidery file we send to you tells the embroidery machine two things: Where to go; and when to change colors. It does not tell the machine which color thread to use. That is determined by the embroiderer.
16. How secure is this website and my info?
