ah 2020 Client sends in two revisions last night.. not new punches, just simple revisions.... so I understand them CALLING WANTING TO KNOW WHAT IS TAKING SO LONG... foot tapping. lol

Very simple changes , could actually be done on ANY embroidery machine, no prob.... one design is from 2011 and the other from 2006. HOW COOL that our client, their client and us are still all in business to do this!! I was just surprised to have a client this long and to hear them upset about timing on revisions.

relax it is just embroidery.

you have had the opportunity with the design for 14 years... WE? oh one time... get the pic?

design MUST be 1.624 inches wide. again... let me think about thread and needles and fabrics and digitizing and operator and machine...etc.... .oo4 thousandths HAS TO BE ACHIEVED..... is the embroidery going to Space? THAT I get... or for any MEDICAL procedure? THAT I also get... but embroidery on a HAT? seriously??! Calm down sales peoples. just calm down. 1.6 is perfectly fine.. heck 1.5 would work... OH maybe even 1.7!!?!

today a client requested a 13 inch tall by 7 inch wide design... not a problem... BUT it has to fit in a 10 inch square hoop. BUT still has to be 13 x 7 . uh are you competent to multihoop the design to achieve the 13? answer NO... make it work.

OH I GOT YOUR WORK.... guess what ... it is me telling you Q(*(#&__@# and move along please.

so client asks for a quote (stop me if you have heard this before) so I quote it at 2.5 inches wide.... client: "how tall would that make it?"

It is a circle.

so if a 17 inch tall design is 90,000 stitches then reducing that to 15 inches tall should be 79,500 stitches. simple math as satins at this size would stay satins not convert to running...etc. 90 times 15 divided by 17

seriously? simple 7th grade math. or nowadays a phone app lol

these are grown a adults selling something they really know nothing about NOR are they seemingly even trying to learn.

Of course then HOW would they learn? Our industry is reverting to "cottage" more and more each year. Magazines that once were became pamphlets then completely disappeared... trade shows have been much smaller ... Competitions to give creative outlet and learning opportunities are pretty extinct

YouTube is an opportunity but very few are trying it.

any thoughts?

Client: "design is sewing wacky please fix"

Me: Please send an image of your sewout and I am sure we can fix

Client: JUST FIX IT!

Me: sorry I am at the auto repair shop telling them that my truck is acting "WACKY"... so bear with me, take a "chill pill" until they fix the wackiness so I can get back to my computer to take care of your "wacky" design.

so come to find out the "sewing" is what they see on the computer screen.... OH YES that is a perfect representation of how your fabric, your machine, your thread, your operator, etc will create the actual embroidery.

Goes back to clients wanting their digitizer to send them (or at least show them) a sewout. HECK I WOULD LOVE to do that ... provided then there could be NO edits! obviously that makes no sense. the best we can hope for in that instance is at least they understand the design digitizing is not completely horrible... but when factoring in all the above mentioned variables is it really? does any of it really matter?

To me, not at all.. ALL that matters is what you produce with your expert or limited abilities with the tools you have chosen to use. (stop blaming the digitizer as the only culprit ) just sayin

Unfortunately yes I have many thoughts...
And its not just in Digitizer level its in the Embroidery and Contract Embroidery level.

Maybe its just me seeing a trend before it hits maybe its my area seems to be ahead of everyone for some reason.

1. Outsourcing to bad overseas digitizers with stolen software has cause a distrust. So industry practice is blame the digitizer.

2. Websites like that which will not be named have created the 1 price rule which is basically they try to dictate the price and no setup and etc... these sites end up downgrading quality expectations while promoting only the good reviews. Those remaining that have Higher expectations start demanding those expectations for bare minimum price.

2. The Embroidery industry is hitting another oversaturation dumb wave.
The first wave came from tons of people at home who buy a machine or two and may be really smart and good and think they can make a business out of a single head. But have no clue how to run a business or how to price and undersell just to get the order till they go broke.
The 30 odd people in a county doing that just stole fair business from people who know what they are doing as a business. So they not only undersell and go out of business and then decent businesses go under from the loss. That left a gap in service for people.
Now we hit the second wave. There are plenty of companies out there that were selling or occasionally selling embroidery and outsourcing it but actually had no idea how to embroirer are now getting a lot more embroidery orders (Screen Printers, marketing, promo etc.) And you get this thought where companies think "how hard can this be?" and buy up equipment to take it on in house... now there is even more vicious competition... where instead of outsourcing You take it all on and suddenly you just put yourself and your contractor out of business. All these companies that KNOW what they are doing are falling apart cause everyone thinks its easy. People that actually have the skill are getting kicked left and right and just drop out entirely. Hell I am considering selling it all and getting out.

Basically you have entered the new level of DUMB NEWBIE that just bought a $80,000 eight head and has no idea how to run it right. BUT THOSE PAYMENTS CATCH UP. so they start panicing and blame anyone but themself or just blame themself and start yelling at everyone cause they wont take the time to learn. Seen it happen so many times

ltpemb: what you wrote would be a PERFECT article if only there were places to publish it that mattered anymore!

Identity Marketing,
EMB
IMPRESSIONS
STITCHES
etc. oh then a WEARABLES combination pamphlet. ha.

There were SO many opportunities to learn about so much in the industry but like paper books the internet has pretty much gotten it's pound of flesh without (unfortunately) assisting the embroidery industry.
