I first discovered Embroidery Super Deal when I wanted to grow my embroidery font stash. Free and inexpensive embroidery fonts are challenging to find, and I couldn’t stomach paying $5+ per font every time I wanted something new.
Now, my embroidery software does convert .otf and .ttf computer fonts to embroidery fonts. However, it doesn’t do the best job on many occasions. Because let’s face it, in most cases fonts digitized manually by an actual person stitch out better than those generated by computers.
When I found I could buy the entire Embroidery Super Deal website (which includes 200+ fonts) for $20, I decided to give it a try. Worst case scenario, I’d be out $20 and would write a review. Best case scenario, I’d not need to buy any new fonts for a very long time!
If you too are considering purchasing from this design website, here’s my Embroidery Super Deal review.
I’m not an affiliate for them, so you can rest assured this is my actual experience.
Now, as a sneak peek, I think this deal is an incredible value, but there are several things I wish the site would change that I’ll share at the end.
Is Embroidery Super Deal legit?
First, this is a legitimate website and deal.
They have an active Facebook group with over 20,000 members, and I purchased the whole site deal in 2020 and downloaded many designs with no issues. I can also tell from downloading designs that the site has been around since at least 2014, possibly longer.
2022 Update: I had an issue with my account not working, and it took a long time to get support to email me back and fix the issue (I sent many, many emails).
I have since talked with the owner, who recommends emailing blastohelp[at]gmail[dot]com for a quick response to issues!
The Entire Site Deal vs. Monthly Subscription
Embroidery Super Deal used to be where you could buy all current designs for a one-time price of $20 and all future designs for an extra $10. This was a great deal, as it was one-and-done!
Either that or you could purchase individual design packs. As each pack averages around $3, you came out way ahead with the whole site deal if you planned to download more than 6 design packs.
Now, the site has moved to a monthly pricing structure of $19.99/month, which is an interesting move. So, technically, if you want to purchase the whole site, you can still subscribe for one month for $20 and download the entire site.
But instead of $10 for all future designs, you have to continue paying $20/month or buy the lifetime website download, which is now $249.99. More about my thoughts on this later and how it compares to other embroidery subscription services!
When you go to purchase from Embroidery Super Deal, you have to give all your personal information and payment details.
You can pay with a credit card, Amazon Pay, or Paypal. I used my Discover and didn’t have to pay tax here in Texas.
One thing I did think was weird, though, was the merchant that processed my payment was www.dailyarthub.com, NOT www.embroiderysuperdeal.com.
So, I learned the owners of Embroidery Super Deal must also have a second website with daily clip art. Add that to the fact that their YouTube channel that has the tutorials for making ITH stuffies is named Blasto Stitch, which must be their third website! (I bought that entire website deal, too, and you can read my Blasto Stitch review also!)
Nonetheless, after clicking to buy, I received two confirmation emails and was directed to the below webpage.
Now, what the above screen says isn’t true anymore. To download designs, navigate to the design page you want to save and then click the file you want if there are multiples or the download now button if not. No need to add it to your cart first.
How good are the designs?
I’ve had time to stitch out many designs and fonts now and also check them out in my embroidery software.
I am a hobbyist digitizer and boldly proclaim myself as only average at the craft. So, that being said, to my non-professional eye, I think the designs look well-made.
And, all the stitch-outs have been great. So, as far as I can tell, the designs are digitized by someone who knows what they are doing!
Why I’m Glad I Bought the Embroidery Super Deal Package
First, FONTS. Embroidery fonts are SO expensive. (Here are some places to download free embroidery machine fonts, though.) You can get a pack of 200 fonts with their entire site package, which is a great deal!
Be careful using some of the fonts commercially, though. I know Disney is copyrighted/licensed, so the fonts that strongly resemble the Disney and Star Wars fonts should not be used commercially. There are several other fonts like the Jeopardy font, Coca-Cola font, and even Super Mario font that may violate copyright as well for commercial use.
Second, IDEAS. When I need a gift idea, they have embroidery “packs” with lots of themed designs. I use this as a springboard for dreaming of my next machine embroidered gift project. For instance, need a Christmas gift idea? Search Christmas and find all the designs for Christmas in-the-hoop projects and more.
Third, TONS OF DESIGNS. You get your money’s worth with thousands of designs all in one place and free for your downloading pleasure.
Comparison to Other Design Subscription Platforms
For the $19.99/mo, if you download the entire website in your first month and then cancel your subscription, there’s no denying that’s a great deal.
However, when it comes time to continue the monthly subscription, other platforms offer more value long-term simply because not that many new designs are added each month to Embroidery Super Deal.
For instance, Creative Fabrica. You can download their entire website for $1 for the first month. And, if you want to continue with the subscription, they only charge $19/month.
And, their website is FULL of everything you could ever want if you’re particularly crafty, not just embroidery designs. (They do currently have 22,000+ machine embroidery designs, though.)
They also have 50,000+ SVG files if you’re a Cricut user, 3 million graphics, and 75,000 fonts. All of which come with a commercial-use license.
So, as much as I love the designs on Embroidery Super Deal, I think the continued monthly price is a little high when compared to competitors in the industry.
What I Don’t Like About Embroiderysuperdeal.com
My biggest past complaint with the website was FOR YEARS, they teased their full-site deal would be ending the next day, soon, or some variation of urgent phrasing. And for years, it never ended.
However, the deal finally ended and transitioned to the new pricing structure, so I can’t complain about that anymore!
One other issue is, for beginning embroiderers, some of the in-the-hoop projects don’t come with as in-depth tutorials as some other design websites. If you’re a true beginner, I’d recommend tackling this type of project only after learning the basics of embroidery and using simple designs on simple embroidery blanks.
This is super picky, but I wish the fonts had a .esa format. This is the Hatch embroidery font file format, which allows you to use your keyboard when putting together letters instead of importing each letter as a design file and combining them. (There are .bx formats for many fonts if you use Embrilliance, which is really nice.)
Embroidery Super Deal Review – Final Thoughts
And that’s my thoughts for now. As a quick recap, this is a legitimate site, the embroidery designs are of good quality, and they have an active Facebook group and email list. I’d buy it again if given the option!
