The logo will be embroidered. How many colors should you use in your design?
Does the cost go up significantly for more colors?
What exactly is stitch count?
What format should the file be saved in so it is “embroider” ready?
- In my experience it is best to design a logo that is going to be used in embroidery with as few colors as possible. Three colors should be a good number.
- The cost usually goes up per color, but that all depends on the embroiderer.
- Stitch count is that exactly: the number of stitches in the embroidered element.
- The format depends on the type of machine that the embroiderer is using. Most cases a .jpg in medium resolution will work just fine.
As with all things, it is a good idea to talk to the company who will be embroidering the logo.
