Product creator updates: Embroidery
We've updated our embroidery product creator tool with some great new features.
If you currently have embroidered products saved in your account you’ll want to update or recreate them, and if you don’t… well, there’s never been a better time than now to get started!
New 3D render
Before this update your embroidery artwork was subject to the same filters applied to designs that were being printed. These filters work for prints, but embroidery is an entirely different decoration method with an entirely different result.
The first thing you’ll notice when previewing your product is the new 3D render that’s applied to your artwork. Now your artwork looks embroidered, and your mockups look far more realistic. Pretty jazzy, right?!
Once uploaded, your design will be simplified based on whether or not you want 3D foam. There are different limitations for each option:
With 3D foam - maximum of two colours available.
Without 3D foam - maximum of four colours available.
You’ll then need to select your thread colours from a pool of 16 available threads:
Selecting predefined colours in this way means there are no surprises when your designs are embroidered; we’ll use the exact colours you’ve selected when creating the product. Previously, all embroidery was subjective since the machine operator matched colours as closely as possible, but this update means we'll use the exact colours selected every single time we create your product.
If you’re new to embroidery (or even if you’re not) you can find everything you need to know about best practices for creating your embroidery design files in our Help Centre.
