Your Embroidered Logo: Questions About Sending Artwork?

Uncertain about sending artwork to your embroiderer?  Many people are unsure about sending artwork to an embroiderer.  Here are answers to some frequently asked questions:

What file type should I send?

Have your artwork in different file types but don't know which your embroider prefers?  Ask them. Everyone can open a jpeg but if its a low resolution image a higher resolution file may be necessary. In that case vector formats such as eps, ai or cdr are better.

Afraid to send a file you can't open?

Reluctant to send artwork files you can't open because you don't have the right software? Include a jpeg file with a note saying that the two files should have the same basic content.

Afraid to include your artwork when requesting a quote?

Hesitant to send artwork to a group of decorators because it might be stolen?  While the chance of this happening is extremely rare you can send the stitch count instead if you know it.
