How to save time on embroidery lettering TIP 3: Team Names
It’s good to see how many people appreciate the tips we’ve published from Dean Roscoe’s Wilcom embroidery lettering tips. If you missed them, see Tip 1: Update Kerning Values and Tip 2: User-Refined Letters
Here’s Tip 3: Team Names
Adding name drops is an everyday task for an embroiderer, but preparing all the individual files takes time. With the Wilcom Team Names function you can quickly produce batches of names by typing or importing them from a text document (Figure 6). Once in the system they are stored as editable groups for future use.
When it’s time to sew simply pick the names you require and drop them as a single stack onto the screen (Figure 7). The file can be exported in multiple ways to suit the machine configuration in your shop. Here are two of the most popular.
Multihead Output the file to stitch the main logo on all heads followed by the individual names one-by-one.
Single head Output one single file consisting of the design and names stacked on top of each other separated by stops.
These are just some of the many powerful features that you’ll find in Wilcom EmbroideryStudio. If you’re not making full use of them already, doing so has the potential to cut your lettering set-up time in half.
