What will the finished embroidery look like once I am done sewing?
When embroidering a photograph details are important. Often more important than in other embroideries. A high details amount is important for making the motive recognizable, for example a face. This means that photo embroidering can in some way be harder to stitch rather than regular embroideries because much detail involves many thread changes etc. Meanwhile, the result is something completely unique that can definitely make it worthwhile. Here at Photo Embroidery you can adjust the amount of details just the way you want your design to have. In general:
More details → Increased quality but more "single stitches" which leads to more thread changes
Less details → Decreased quality but more easy to sitch
Our goal is to have the preview image to look as close as possible to the finished embroidery. As our costumer, we want you to feel safe shopping from us and satisfied with the products that you receive. Having the finished product precisely match the preview image is, however, impossible. Primarily because of two reasons:
A distinct shade of colour never looks the same to the naked eye as it does on a computer screen, printed paper, or thread. This can be a problem because screen settings and monitor quality vary substantially, and will sometimes cause a discrepancy between the preview image and the finished embroidery. The same is true for printers. In most cases the result is still satisfactory, but unfortunately, in some cases not.
We use our very own advanced image-processing methods to create the best embroideries possible, and are constantly developing this technique to improve their quality. For a really good result, it is important to know a few basic facts that apply to all embroideries:
These irregularities are based on facts and are impossible to avoid. This applies as much to our business as it does to our competitors' because an embroidery, by definition, will always have a lower richness of detail and colour reproduction than the original photo the embroidery is based off of. In summary, it should be said that it is important to choose an appropriate photo in which the small details are not so important, as well as augment the parts which are crucial to the visual experience.
Our service is unique in that the customer can always preview the result before placing an order, something which is much appreciated.
