Computerized machine embroidery
This method uses a computerized sewing machine and dedicated cursive script software to create lettering.
With computer sewing embroidery, letter sizing and spacing are completed uniformly, but depending on the letter combination, the center of the lettering may seem slightly misaligned with the center line of the belt.
Please be aware of this point prior to ordering.
At present, this method is generally adopted by this company to enter name lettering on uniforms.
Computer sewing embroidery cannot be used sometimes in the following cases.
1.The number of letters is too great.
2.Switch the lettering between large and small letters.
3.Fill the letterings into two lines.
