Coloreel Studio

Coloreel Studio is our newly developed software for colorization of your embroidery design. The program is the link between your digitization software and the Coloreel Unit. You use the same dst-file that you load into your embroidery machine. In Coloreel Studio you add all the colors and effects that you need for your final design.

The program is made with simplicity in mind. The tools are carefully selected and simple to use. We use drag and drop for most of the functions. Most of the action happens in the timeline at the bottom of the screen where you can see the color queue from the embroidery┬┤s start to finish.

Coloreel Studio is under constant improvement and we are adding many new functions and effects.
