Decorators and consumers recognize the value of an embroidered finish. Embroidery is among the most sought-after looks for custom apparel. It’s also one of the slowest methods of embellishment.
Without adding up the cost of needles, thread, and equipment, embroidery requires another major investment – your time. Even with expensive equipment, decorators need to watch or “babysit” their machines in case of any malfunctions, jams, thread breakage, etc. Don’t forget the setup time spent digitizing designs, programming and syncing the machine.
While embroidered finishes are valuable, they are also incredibly time consuming. Many embroiderers say no to small quantity orders because it’s simply not worth the overall production time. What if there was a way to offer an embroidered look without all the hassle? Sounds like a decorator’s dream, right? Well, STAHLS’ created SimStitch® and made that dream a reality!
