Digitizing Software for Commercial Embroidery Machines

Digitizing Software a for your Commercial embroidery Machine, Graphics Software for your Creativity, Rhinestone Software for Bling and more, more more…

Digitizing software can be what stands between the average new embroidery business owner and success. That’s because while an industrial embroidery machine works fundamentally like a home embroidery machine, how you approach design is completely different.

Pantograms has taken steps to make this part of your new embroidery business EASY so all you have to think about is making your GS1501 embroidery machine make money for you.


Embroidery Software for digitizing


DRAWing software is designed to be powerful, but incredibly simple to operate too.

Gone are the days when you would need decades of experience to create a great embroidery design. With Creative DRAWings all you need is a simple image file, like one of your customer’s logos for example, and it’s as easy as clicking a few buttons to turn it into embroidery.

Of course, you can use customer artwork or find your own files online, but Pantograms starts you off with Pantostock, a collection of 4,000 embroidery designs already done! You also get to download up to 200 designs from Dakota Collectibles, one of the best sources of embroidery clip art in the world.

Do you already have embroidery files? You’ll be surprised at the number of different formats you can input into this digitizing software – including formats from the most popular consumer machines in the industry.



DRAWings 8 Pro

It’s been a long time since our experienced embroidery and digitizing pros at Pantograms have been really impressed with a software package. In fact, our Trainers and Support Technicians have been doing, and teaching embroidery digitizing for years and so know it backwards and forwards. The techniques, the applications, the workflow, everything that you need to do to convert graphics to embroidery, do monograms or create text and set all the more technical details that make the difference between a fast clean sew out and a thread break are all part of their every day jobs.

That’s until DRAWings 8 Pro! Truly the simplest and MOST POWERFUL digitizing software on the market. Go from a graphics file, like a .jpeg or .png, to an embroidery design in seconds. AND have all the underlay, stitch types and those technical details taken care of at the same time. Watch this video to see just how easy it is!

Event Monogramming or Digitizing Text is easier because you can use any TrueType Font!

Just think about how much you could do, how much more you could make if you offer the same design in embroidery, vinyl, full color heat transfer, rhinestones or stencils? It could be a game-changing software for your business.

Doing Applique with DRAWings 8.0

Are you graduating from a home embroidery machine? Starting your business based on friends and family, or taking the next step in going with a commercial embroidery machine?

Then applique is probably a big part of what you’re currently offering, or might be at the top of the list to offer customers in your new business. The DRAWings is perfect for you!

You can combine what you do on your cutter with what you an produce with your GS1501 Embroidery Machine into a profitable applique easily.. and profitably.

Applique and cuts

Simply import your existing applique design, or creat your own. Cut the fabrics that you will use with your cutter right from DRAWings 8.0 and then use your GS1501 embroidery machine to sew out your applique.

That’s just ONE EXAMPLE of the power of DRAWings!

Import and Export Files

Being able to exchange files is an important part of an embroidery business that’s often overlooked in standard embroidery digitizing software.

Not only can DRAWings utilize almost every consumer embroidery machine file format available, which means you can use files you or your customers have been working with for years, like Brother embroidery machine formats for example, but you can much more easily work with files that graphic artists use. These formats include .ai from Adobe Illustrator, .svg and .eps from many other applications.

DRAWings 8.0 Pro builds on all the great features of version 6.7 Pro, so read about those below:
