 EmbroideryStudio e4 Designing LogoUltimate Embroidery & Multi-Decoration Software

Embroidery Studio E4 is set up on a modular basis.  You can add features or Elements that will give you all of the Advanced level features, or you may add individual Elements to tailor make the software for your individual business. If you would like to go to the very top, all the “bells and whistles”, you would add all 9 of the advanced Elements, and the Alphabet Creator, the Chenille Element, the Sequin Element, and the Schiffle Element.  Or, you may add what you only need now, and come back later when your business dictates it.  With Wilcom, you have option of, E4 Designing, or E4 Designing with a couple of the Elements, right up to Everything that Wilcom offers.   The Add-Ons or Elements are listed below.

Your basic E4 Designing does everything that other software does, or says they will do, and more, and is integrated with Corel X8. so you gain a graphic program as well.  E4 Designing’s integration with Corel X8, allows you to move from a powerful graphic program to the powerful Digitizing program that Wilcom offers, and now you can use several of the Corel features on the Embroidery side of the program as well.  E4 Designing will do a great job on your corporate logos, both with the automatic process and the manual digitizing.  You will have 200 fonts, four of which are designed to be an eighth of an inch or less, and six that are for Puff Embroidery. Wilcom’s fonts have always been considered the best.  You will find that they may be used with no editing.  Designing contains a Full Monogramming package, and your basic Team Name Element that will allow you take care of Team, Group, and even Hospital, orders without having to retype the names and risk a mis-spell.  You also may bring in your DST, CND, PES  and other machine Formats, and modify them..  They will become completely flexible and you may change sizes, add new lettering for that new event, and edit the design to your hearts content, even though it was not created in Wilcom’s “Mother” language! E4 Design’s new features also include an internal data base that allows you to catalog and retrieve your designs, Ideal for keeping up with your customer’s needs, as they return.  also Ideal for saving those special parts of designs that can be used again in another job.The automatic digitizing is simple, and will give you the same results as the digitizers overseas produce.   You will scan a clean version of your customers logo into the Corel part of the Wilcom program, turn it to a vector image, then convert it to embroidery,  and in less than 10 minutes you have the logo ready for embroidery.  You will tell the software what fabric you are using, and while it calibrates the stitches, it will give you the correct underlays, pull comp, and densities for that fabric.  Because of the integrations with Corel X8, (This is not a Plug-in), your “automatic” design will look good and stitch well.  All of the automatic stitching can be edited.  Which means, that through editing the design, you may put your own signature on it. Add blends, layered fills, change stitch direction for affect, and lighten densities where needed. For many, using the Automatic features is a great start to an even greater design. Get the basics done perfectly through the automatic features, and then digitize the other parts manually.

E4 Designing has all the manual digitizing functions that you will need for your everyday work, and it is user friendly.  You will be able to create your stitches; the running stitch, the column or satin stitch, and the Fill or Tatami, easily, and when you move a mark or node the stitches will follow.  So you will see immediately what you have created and/or what edits you have made.  You will also have complete control of the length of your stitches, the density of your stitches, your underlays, and the patterns created in your fills.  Together with a little training, you will be able to be as creative as you like.
