When providing digitizing service, you don’t want to buy an expensive machine only to find out later that it is outdated. Before making a decision on your ideal machine, here are four tips on how to choose an embroidery machine;
Requirements; a well-designed embroidery machine must have the standard operation requirements which include needle threader, automatic thread cutting, and sewing needles. Even if your equipment has other sophisticated features, always have your list of must-have items so as to get the right machine for you.
Brand; for you to offer the best digitizing service, your embroidery machine must be from a reputable brand. Check reviews, blogs, or read on their website to get customer satisfaction. Major brands tend to have agents or dealers in local areas, so look for one near you and gauge their customer service so that you can be sure with your purchase.
Functionality; some sewing machines require you to buy a separate embroidery unit. What embroidery machine to buy will depend on your budget. Owners offering digitizing service will benefit by purchasing both types of equipment. However, those who have an economical budget should focus on purchasing a sewing machine that can later accommodate embroidery functions.
Accessories; having a sewing and embroidery machine is not enough. If you can get other accessories such as a quilting table then getting them at once can be economical. You can choose a design that allows you to add other accessories as your business grows. Additionally, machines without adequate built in memory should have a memory card or thumb drive for loading your files to a computer.
Updated technology; while early embroidery machines used floppy disks for transferring files, those with the latest technology should have a USB portal or memory card, reader. Go for equipment that uses the most recent technology as it provides quality.
When you buy the right equipment, you can concentrate on making unique designs.
