Finding quality stock machine embroidery designs can be difficult and getting great custom digitizing is often expensive. This is where we can help. Art of Embroidery provides quality and affordable stock designs with instant download of the most common machine formats, plus our digitizing services are affordable and stitch-outs look great.

We are the original Art of Embroidery digitizing service, a woman-owned business established in 2004. Located in Jamison Pennsylvania (USA), all digitizing is performed in-house by our experienced staff. We are not related to any of the similarly titled books nor other businesses operating under the same name in Georgia, India, Pipersville, or any other location.

Digitizing Services

Utilizing our professional custom digitization services, you will receive a quality machine embroidery design file to give your embroidery professional or use on your own equipment. We perform all digitizing in-house and test stitch every custom design on our own equipment before sending them to you. If our standards aren’t met, we adjust the design and stitch it out again. Rest assured, you will receive a high-quality, tested design – guaranteed.

Have your organization logo, personal design or photograph set in thread. Embroidered logo work is more durable than screen or direct printed products, plus it offers a sharp, professional image.

We do not charge by the stitch for digitizing services. We believe that pricing structure is antiquated and no longer appropriate – so we analyze your artwork and give you a quote based on the complexity of the artwork and embroidered design.

Small Jobs

Art of Embroidery is a digital service company and does not perform production embroidery.

We are unable to provide any recommendations for production stitch-out service professionals.

We have been thrilled with the designs and service we have received from Art of Embroidery. After searching through several digitizers to get our custom designs made, Kathy was the only one who listened to what we wanted and delivered exactly what we were looking for.
