›ATTENTION EVERYONE: THIS WILCOM HATCH FEATURE IS GOING TO CHANGE EMBROIDERY LETTERING AS YOU KNOW IT.
While I do understand that I am super enthusiastic about typography as well as being an embroidery nerd, this is seriously going to change how I work from now on. Really, its that big.
Let me explain what I am raving about in one word. Glyphs.
Quite a few people don’t know that along with the basic lettering in TTF (true type fonts) there are usually a whole different set of glyphs – there are symbols, special lettering, letters with accents, different styled numbers, ligatures, swashes and fancy swirls just to name a few. The problem is, most programs make it super hard to find them, and we tend to forget that they are there. Even if you do find them, unless you are using a program like Adobe Illustrator, they are difficult to get into whatever you are working on. Wilcom has seen this issue and has come up with a perfect and brilliant solution that will change boring lettering into something more!! And to make things even better, you do not have to leave Hatch to use these special letters! Its all right there in the program – quick and easy access and easy to use! Another problem with using glyphs is that some TT Fonts have quite a few glyphs – so many that they are hard to see in the programs that come with Windows and Mac, and even third party programs. You have to guess at what you want, and quite often get it wrong and have to start over again, painstakingly “building” your lettering. Wilcom Hatch embroidery software has taken the guesswork out of glyphs – the icons for them are BIG and CLEAR and you can view them as outlines and with stitches. You really can’t ask for anything more! its perfect! and it will change how i use any of my fonts: its like a whole new world has opened up for me and I am certain that my typography designs will be spectacular.
Here is an example of what I am talking about:
