HI all...we've been pulling our hair out trying to figure out which font will go the smallest without major thread breaks (some of those problems we are fixing-needle angle, MT, etc.) have a client's shirt to duplicate (they got it somewhere else) and the group name measures 3/16", .1875 high. So far we have been unable to sew a 'straight line' font even .2" and have it look decent. This is a 'helvetica' , 'arial', 'avantegarde' style font-probably 'microblock' but we are unable to get a decent sew out. Had other designs that needed small fonts-I ended up 'hand writing' the lettering with 'walk normal stitch' to simulate the lettering-that was the best I could do for this small type. But the design I have to do now-the lettering is on 2 lines with no design near it-so 'hand lettering' would look terrible. It is all capital letters, .1875 high, and I'd guess the column width is about 2 stitches? But it looks so clean and sharp, very legible... I know we must be doing something wrong with settings-so what should be done right? Thanks Roland
