    Hi, I seem to be having a similar problem to many other people. I have 3 images that I would like to have stitched into a hat but it must be converted to DST format by the embroidery shop where it will be done. I searched google, forums, and asked at the store where I might be able to get it done with no success.

    There seems to be expert member on this topic who seems to solve much of these particular issues called Noyb.

    If Noyb or any other member would be able to point me in the direction to get conversion software or even better be able to change these images from .jpeg into .dst format would be great

    Not sure if this is relevant information, but they are going onto a black hat and will be stitched in white lettering. The "BINGER" will be spaced Height 2.15 inches X Length 5 inches and the KTC will fit normal logo size.

    thanks in advance

    You might want to cleanup the text "King of the City" .. It needs to be bigger n fatter.
    The Gap under the crown could also be bigger.
    What's a normal size ???

    THANKS NOYB!!

    The 2 "BINGER" looks fine. Does it matter the color you did it in? When i take it to the embroidery shop it will be done in white.

    Also I did small edits to the "KTC" as you suggested. I removed the letters from the logo on the front so it will just be the letters and the crown. I also increased the space between the crown and the horizontal middle piece and also the horizontal middle piece and the T below it. As another option if it would look better i removed the horizontal middle piece all together

    Size for the logo on the front of the hat. I would say Width 3 and Height 2.25 inches if that is proportionate for the front of a hat.

    Also attached is a new image of the kings of the city spelled out that will be put on the rear of the hat.

    Thanks in advance for saving my gift.

    Whatever thread color you tell them.
    I think you still need bigger, cleaner text.

    I liked a little bigger gap under the crown.
    Is this OK ???

    It really helps if there's open space between the edges for me to digitize in.
    if it's not there, the pattern may be too small to stitch nicely.
    It's not a high resolution picture ... it's low resolution sewing ... See the problem ???

    I kind of understand what you are saying. What should I do to make it possible for you to change the format?

    I was not sure of a font. Perhaps I might just use this font I used on another hat for the back. it closely matches the logo font I believe but I was hopping for exact.

    Your right it does look jumbled. I would love to have the exact but unless you think it will look legible once stitched perhaps it might be better to go with the stores font option for the back of the hat.

    I'm guessing the stores option would be better.
    they shouldn't have to digitize it .. just type it in.
    My digitizer doesn't stitch perpendicular to curves .. (with the radius of a curve)

    Noyb can you change the size of the binger 2 image. It is too small I'm being told at the embroidery shop. Change to size 3 inches height by 6 inches length.

    Also it is going to be raised so could you add more stitches for the underlay to cover the foam properly.

    And there is a lot of lag stitch when they pull the file up in their compute. Could that be change to minimize it

    Thanks again
