As an official Hatch reseller, we are very excited about the official launch of Hatch Version 2, which is now available. This new version is not going to disappoint. Two years ago, when Hatch launched it was immediately my observation that it was hands down the best and most powerful software in the entire home embroidery industry. That, along with its incredible price, made it stand apart as the best.

Now with the release of Version 2, Hatch has ensured its position as being the best in the industry by giving its users new features that far surpass the cost of the upgrade. I would also like to thank all of our customers who purchase Hatch though Digitizing Made Easy, as a reseller I realize consumers have a choice when making their purchase. We’ve done our best to set ourselves apart by providing quality education and support to all Hatch owners.

For years at events, I’ve always made the statement that “any software is only as good as the education available for it“. Being a digitizer for 35 years and teaching in both the commercial and home industries for over two decades I’ve made education one of my primary objectives.

In appreciation, when a customer does purchase through Digitizing Made Easy, we have always provided our exclusive interactive educational and ESA font bonuses to assist with getting past the learning curve.

If Hatch users decide to upgrade to Version 2, please use our reseller code DEER19 at checkout and as a special thank you, you’ll receive codes for bonus ESA fonts as our Exclusive Gift.

At Digitizing Made Easy we have developed over 600 ESA fonts that can be added directly into your Hatch software. These fonts are object-based lettering that utilizes the power of Wilcoms patented stitch processor. Unlike other embroidery fonts, ESA fonts are not merely “stitch files” that have been assigned a keystroke. They are object-based files which carry the same attributes as vector artwork files; they can be modified at the click of a button!

That code again is DEER19, make sure you use it at checkout as it cannot be applied after the point of purchase.

Now for the exciting part, here are just some of the Key feature updates of the new Version 2 Hatch release.

What I also like is that all these improvements and new features have been implemented within the platform that Hatch users have become familiar using. I consider this a valuable asset, as the user does not have to relearn the program, only easily explore all the powerful new tools and toys.

Enjoy exploring Hatch Version 2 as I feel Wilcom has once again raised the bar with helping users produce quality embroidery designs.
