Why do files need to be digitized?

Embroidery digitizing is the process of converting a design file into a stitch file. Once digitized an embroidery machine is able to sew the design onto a hat. To sell hats with Teespring you only need to digitize your design file once. This one-time digitizing fee is deducted from a seller’s account when a new hat listing is created. Normally this fee is $10, but from June 24th through July 7th this fee will be reduced to $5.
