Premier + Software Class

Lettering -  Lettering options in our software has greatly evolved over the years. I remember when I was excited about the prospect of six styles of
fonts. I imagined endless possibilities for my projects, utilizing those fonts. Many more styles of fonts are now available in the PREMIER+™ Embroidery System than in the optional embroidery systems of years gone by. Adjustments can be made to the size, texture, shape and more in the PREMIER+ Embroidery System—much more than we have had the ability to do in previous versions of software. There are two different ways to utilize lettering in the software. The Lettering tab has professionally digitized fonts in a variety of styles and categories. If you still cannot find the perfect font for your project, you can create your own embroidered lettering using the QuickFont feature. This lesson will focus on understanding how to make these adjustments and how some of the creative options work using the built-in fonts. Ultimately, understanding how the lettering works will ensure quality embroidery stitching on your projects.

This class requires Premier + Embroidery and up.
