.JPEG to .DST conversion (searching for Noyb)
Hey everyone,

I am in a bit of a bind. I need to convert a .jpeg logo to a .dst image in order for an embroidery store to stitch the logo on a jacket for our motorsports club .Unfortunately, the embroidery store will be charging me an exorbitant amount to digitize the logo, so I am looking for a more cost-effective solution.

I noticed an expired thread where a distinguished member (Noyb) had converted a simply logo for someone into .dst format. If Noyb (or any other user) could help me out, you'd be saving my life.

Any info on free .dst conversion software would also be helpful, as google has failed me on this one.

Thanks

The outline of the crest does not have to have the dot.
If possible I need the racecar one about 10.5inches in length

I can't go that big ... And need a better Image for the Crest.
It's probably too detailed for an embroidery pattern anyway.
You don't need to have duplicate posts

Question/Opinion
Hey Noyb...I am looking to see if this would stich well...what is your opinion? I was goign to clean it up more if it looks like something that could be sticked.

I am new to all this..but to me..this is the ultimate 'Polo'. This would not be a forsale item due to copyright trademark, just something fun for father son golf.

Thank you!!!
Awesome...will have to try this out. What are you using to create the DST...this looks great...but wondering if I cleaned up the original some if it would show more detail. But this looks great...thanks a ton for the file. I am attaching a cleaned up version...thicker white lines and thicker dark ones for details. Do you think it would turn out better with these.

Maybe cleaning up using less detail .... (Thread has a limited resolution) ..
And let me know if you want white thread in the gaps ... (Put it in the Image)

Send me a Private Message with your Email Address, So we can work in PS.psd files that are too large to attach here.
The image needs to have more pixels and only 3 colors .. Black, White & Red with no fuzzy edges.
For example ... and I'm using gray to show where there will be background (stitching)

No PM Yet .. But the PS.psd will zip nicely since it has some solid color layers and can be attached (under 500KB)
See some of the areas that I've highlighted in Yellow (layer) to show where work might be needed.
these areas need to be bigger and open .. Imagine that you have to use a FAT Paint brush for areas that need to be stitched.
Small Stuff cannot be stitched.

How's this ???
I've open up some of the white areas with an 8 pixel eraser .. About the smallest usable "Paint Brush"
The dst along with the psd is in the zip
