What makes us different from other digitizers ?

In our two decades of digitizing, we have been compared to many other digitizers for our policies and pricing. We never charge our clients by stitches; we believe that Digitizers are not machines and so why should we charge by stitches. Charging by stitches is rational for embroiderers as their machine will run and produce pattern by stitches. More the stitches, more time it will take for a machine to complete the job so they should get more money. But for digitizers it’s not always true.

We always charge our clients by the complexity in the design, so we always send the quotes to our clients before proceeding with the actual digitizing. Our pricing is very honest, we will charge our clients for the work we do for them. We always digitize the wording, we never use keyboard letterings. We always believe that the finest embroidery can be had only if we digitize the wording with our dexterity. We never use auto digitizing to create fast designs, we are bitten with passion for digitizing bug we love to create fine embroidery digitizing patterns. So our prices are very honest and affordable, you get what you pay for.
