Elevate Your Commercial Logos
with Photo Flash
Unlock your creative potential by integrating Wilcom’s innovative Photo Flash stitch type into your embroidery toolkit.
Unlike conventional digitizing methods, this approach seamlessly transforms jpg images into a distinctive stitch type, yielding unique results.
While traditionally used to transform black-and-white photographic images into realistic embroidery designs quickly.
This cutting-edge stitch reveals its versatility in producing distinctive effects for commercial logo designs. The methodology involves creating rows of both satin and running stitches, concentrating in darker areas, and thinning in lighter areas of an image, only connecting at the design’s edge. The resulting visual has a retro, sketch-like look that defies convention and sparks the imagination.

To edit and separate graphic files specifically for Photo Flash, use the integrated CorelDRAW® Graphics Suite 2023 and separate the design colors into individual PNG images with transparent backgrounds.
Appy Photo Flash to the relevant graphic files and use standard tatami to infuse color into the base letters. It doesn’t get simpler than that!
This very same technique can be used to generate intricate shield logos, and many other logos, expanding the range of possible commercial applications.
