Steps for embroidering custom designs
Hi. It's me again. The visor covers I managed to sew together went over well at www.bonnevilleclub.com . So well in fact, other members have expressed interest in custom embroidery for their cars. I'm entertaining the idea of producing them myself rather than outsourcing as I had done with mine. But, I need some help in understanding the steps to embroider an original design on a home machine. Here is what I understand so far (feel free to correct me as I'm a beginner):
1) Create image. I've been told that the Club has full licensing from GM to reproduce authentic logos. I can scan these images or might be able to obtain an image file.
2) Digitize. I've seen software from $200 to $1000 to do this. I've also seen services that will digitize an image sent via email and returned in the format for the specific machine.
3) Download to memory card. I would need one of those magic boxes and a memory card to transfer the file from my PC to the card.
4) Plug in the memory card and embroider.
Am I close?
