Errors can occur if you are not applying proper methods.
To completely learn the skills in this field you need to do the consistent practice. By using all the required tips you can become an expert in this type of designing and establish a place in the professional market.

It’s not easy to choose from so many different designs.
You need to keep in mind your fabric type before the selection of design.
Most people choose the most attractive design but it will not match the requirement of fabric so it can waste your hard work.
Stretchy or thick pile like looped or wool fabrics on a terry cloth require more foundation in the design and you can get it with digitized stitches.
There are also so many substrates like nylon, leather, or canvas that don’t require any foundation and look best with low count stitches.
Unlike the custom work that you can digitize it specifically for a substrate, a stock design is digitized in a general manner and it is possible that it will not work properly with your chosen substrate.
You should read the reviews of customers about the substrate during shopping.
First of all, you need to put the design on the printer that you want your final product. The printer prints it on a film. It is also useful to create different patterns.
Then the printer selects the mesh screens according to the complexity of the artwork and prints the texture of the fabric. Then a light emulsion layer is used for the coating of mesh screen that becomes hard if it develops under the bright lights.
Then the design is exposed to the emulsion screen under bright light. The light will hard it so the coated area remains in liquid form.
After the exposure of the screen, the not covered areas become hard. When the screen becomes dry you can be corrected and your pattern will ready for use.
Now you have to place the screen on the press. Garments or other items that you are going to print should lay down on the board under the screen. There are so many types of printers that are using for embroidery designs like automatic or manual. But the most latest printers like automatic rotator printers are best to use. Then ink colors are added on the top end and your design is ready.
