Embird Font Engine combines embroidery lettering tool and graphics in vector file format. It creates embroidery lettering from common Windows fonts in TrueType and OpenType format.

Studio

Digitizing plug-in for Embird Embroidery Software

Vector outlines filled with stitches

While basic Embird program works mostly with stitch files, Studio uses vector objects for easier creation of design. The main concept of digitizing in Studio is to draw vector outlines of respective objects and fill them with various types of stitches in a similar way as you fill object with color in a graphic program.

Studio contains two parts, each of them is optional

Digitizing of Embroidery Designs

Digitizing Tools allow user to digitize scalable embroidery designs up to 200×200 centimeters (78.8×78.8″) large.

Design is digitized so that user creates outline (vector) objects either on a blank background or on an image (template) in the work area. When finished, design is compiled into stitches and put into Embird Editor for final adjustment and save in desired embroidery format.

IconizerIconizer

Optional Plug-in for Embird Embroidery Software

Folder with files displayed as icons

Iconizer displays content of embroidery files as icons or thumbnails. This capability is not limited to files displayed in Embird. Once the Iconizer is installed and registered, it can work on background of Windows Explorer or File Explorer and all programs that use standard dialog windows. Whenever Windows needs to draw icon of embroidery file in any program or panel, Iconizer supplies image of design stored in this file. This allows you to see icons of actual designs, not just generic icons as would happen without Iconizer. Iconizer is a useful tool to manage your embroidery designs in Explorer or other programs.

Alphabet

Alphabets are manually pre-digitized embroidery fonts in re-sizeable format. Alphabets contain multiple versions of each character optimized for various size range and for a nearest-point connection between the letters. Therefore, they are especially suitable for creation of small lettering. Embird allows comfortable work with Alphabets, including arching and shaping of the text.
