Before digitizing a design for embroidery, some customers prefer to get a stitch count estimation to have a rough idea of the production cost and time. While this may seem like a smart move, it’s essential to understand how accurate stitch count estimations impact production costs and time.
Underestimated Stitch Count
Underestimating the stitch count can be a significant issue that can result in a longer production time and higher costs. When the actual stitch count exceeds the estimated stitch count, it will take more time to complete the embroidery, leading to increased labor costs. Additionally, more thread and backing materials will be used, increasing the material costs.
Overestimated Stitch Count
Overestimating the stitch count can also be a problem. If the actual stitch count is less than the estimated stitch count, the customer will end up paying more than they should have. Additionally, the digitizer may take longer to digitize the design to meet the estimated stitch count, leading to increased labor costs.
Accurate Stitch Count
An accurate stitch count estimation is essential to ensure that the embroidery design is completed within the estimated production cost and time. An accurate stitch count estimation allows the digitizer to optimize the digitizing process, selecting the most efficient stitch types and densities to ensure the best quality results at the lowest possible cost.
The Role of Technology
Embroidery digitizing technology has come a long way in recent years, allowing for more accurate stitch count estimations. Using advanced software, digitizers can analyze the design and provide a precise stitch count estimation based on the design’s complexity, size, and other factors.
In conclusion, accurate stitch count estimations are crucial to ensure that the embroidery is completed within the estimated production cost and time. Underestimating or overestimating the stitch count can lead to increased production costs and longer production times.
