Types of embroidery files
There are two main types of stitch files: single-colour and multi-colour.

If you’re unsure which type of file you need, our team of experts can help you choose the right one for your project.
Best file type for embroidery
Your file type is important when you digitise a logo for an embroidery machine.
Depending on the quality of the machine and the thread, you’ll want to use either a .dst or .embroidery file. DST files are generally of higher quality but are also more expensive.
If you’re on a budget, a .embroidery file will suffice.
Either way, consult with your embroiderer before making your final decision. We can tell you everything you need to know!
