Create simple lettering

Once you are used to sewing out designs and resizing, changing colors and fabric types, you will certainly want to create your own lettering designs. While it takes practice to obtain a good quality stitchout, it is as simple as typing letters on-screen to create an attractive lettering design.

Designs, fonts and other elements used in this video may not be available in your software, depending upon purchased options.

Use Manage Designs > Open Selected to open design(s) selected in the embroidery library.

Use Manage Designs > New From Selected to create new designs based on designs selected in the embroidery library.

Open design

Open a design. Typically you’ll want to add lettering to an existing design. Go to the Manage Designs toolbox and choose from one of the many samples. See also Manage designs.

Use Lettering / Monogramming > Lettering to create embroidery lettering onscreen using native embroidery alphabets or TrueType fonts.

Add lettering

Add embroidery lettering to designs quickly and easily, either on-screen using current settings or via ‘object properties’. See Create lettering.


Adjust baselines and other settings

It’s then a simple matter to adjust baselines, formatting, spacing settings, and colors. See Lettering layouts.

Try stitching out your lettering design. Study the stitch quality. Be aware that different alphabets sew out better at different sizes.
