Robotic machines can sew with extreme speed and accuracy like never before. Making for exquisite outcomes.Embroidery is preferred by corporate companies and small businesses alike, since it looks more professional on aprons, robes, suits and casual wear. Embroidery can also be done on bags, towels, robes, dress shirts, suit coats, and many other items.Embroidery can be put on a wide variety of materials.In addition, many companies charge a setup fee called digitizing. This process is basically converting an image into a file that the robotic machinery can read and is normally just a one-time fee.
