Making Logos

How would I make a logo in Touch Embroidery?

At present, you likely would not. You'd send away to a digitizing service for a logo. There's a large number of companies with the expensive software tools that specifically cater to this sort of work (E.g. Quality Punch) . They are fast and professional and know the ins-and-outs of embroidery and machines to sew them on etc. There's a lot to getting things a good logo. My work tends to veer a bit away from this and more towards the home embroidery user and more artistic work.

The tools are line manipulation and generation tools. You can change large number of points in specific ways directly modifying the design, by these tools. As well as several that create new lines either simply or in patterns.

Tools work on the currently selected layers. Layers are selected in the layer view or by default when they are created.

What's the difference between Touch Embroidery and Touch Embroidery Free?

  1. A few dollars.
  2. I've been disabling a few tools and a few widgets each new version. Usually different set each time, I update the version.
  3. Name & Icon
  4. Future proof. I might change some things in the future, either disabling some awesome new features when I think they exist. Or simply not disabling anything at all. In either case the main version wouldn't be affected by anything decided whereas the free version might be.
