Embroidery Super Deal Review – Is It Legit and Worth It?
This post may contain affiliate links, which means I’ll receive a commission if you purchase through my links, at no extra cost to you. Please read full disclosure for more information.
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 a recent issue with my account not working for weeks, and it took a long time to get support to email me back (I sent many, many emails) and fix the issue. Seems like I’m not the only one with this problem right now also! So, just be aware of this recent change.
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!
Thanks for doing this review!
I ran across this site myself a while back and thought that it was a scam, but, having read this post, I went ahead and purchased the whole site pack. There are some really cute designs that I look forward to stitching, and the fonts are a nice bonus! Like you, I wish there were more .bx files… Honestly, I’m not sure if I’ll use the ones that don’t have it that often.
Thanks again for this incredible review post! I look forward to reading more.
Thanks! I hope you have a good experience with the designs as well!
Thanks learning with a new machine that I can now use online sites and download… appreciate your input and time
Great review, I was just trying to decide if this deal was worthwhile and hence searched for reviews. Your review has been extremely helpful.
Thanks! Glad it helped!
Thanks for the Review! EmbroiderySuperDeal.com is my website and I appreciate you taking time to talk about it. My wife and I do in fact own many websites and we have 7 employees on our staff who create original art and digitize. As far as the words “ending soon” it kind is a necessary evil. We are obviously selling our designs at an insanely low price and the only way we can do this is to use words to urge customers to purchase. Otherwise we couldn’t do this 😦 However, to further address the “ending soon” if you check the website we actually DID end it moving on to a monthly price instead of a single payment. So, soon finally arrived 🙂 But again, thank you so much for the review and if you have any questions please reach out 🙂
Hi Philip, thanks for letting me know the deal did finally end, ha! I’ll update my review soon to make note of your new pricing structure 🙂 Best wishes!
Thanks for Blasto Stitch, too. I love being able to go back any time and get what I need. 🙂
Why can‘t I download any of the new designs. I upgraded a while back and was able to get a few of the new ones.
Please let me know what I should do
Thanks, janger from Austria
How can I contact someone at the site? I purchased the site for $20 and did the $10 upgrade. Now it says I have to pay if I want to download anything. It used to show $0 in my cart. There is no way to download anything for free like it says there is above. And the phone # to reach anyone is no longer in service. I wrote to the contact page last month and no one has replied. I don’t know what to do. Thank you!
I had the exact same problem these last few weeks. It took me a while to get a hold of them to correct the issue (almost 7 days until I could download again), but I sent multiple emails to info[at]embroiderysuperdeal[dot]com and also messaged them via their Facebook page. I ultimately got an email back from embroiderystorezero[at]gmail[dot]com that fixed the problem. It might be worth contacting that email directly and sending repeated emails. I hope that helps!
I really appreciate your thorough review!
I had a feeling this was happening as I have been unable to log into my account for days. It kept showing this : 503: Service Temporarily Unavailable
Too many IP addresses accessing one secure area!
Please contact Support if you need assistance.
I have contacted support and no response. I think it would have been nice to advise their customers of this SUPER deal change.
Thanks for your posting.
Hmmm, I had no trouble logging into the site on my computer over this holiday weekend, and it seems to be working right now for me. Have you tried clearing your cache, trying to access it via incognito mode, etc.?
Thanks so much. Years ago I purchased the Blasto Stitch deal. I have had to go back to get things recently and was VERY pleasantly surprised to find it easily available. Like you, I figured it was worth a try. It has come in SO handy. Honestly, because of that, after seeing the Embroiderysuperdeal being associated with Blasto Stitch YouTube video, and you mentioning the association, I’m off to purchase. Super cool that the owner popped up here to chat. Always love knowing who we are dealing with. So, thanks, again! I was hoping for a review like this. Appreciate your time.
Hi from Austria. I purchased the whole site and then upgraded for another $10 for future designs.
Now that the $20 sale is over, I find I can‘t download any of the new designs. I have written several times and sent screen shots of my account details but as yet I have not received any answer…..
I also use blastostitch and am having no problems with it. Thanks!
I hope the site is just having problems with adjusting..
While I have no association with Embroidery Super Deal so can’t provide an answer, I just logged in and seem to be having the same issue on the Embroidery Super Deal website. Blasto Stitch is working great still as you mentioned. I’ll also email and see if I can get a response. I’m sure (at least I hope!) it’s somehow associated with the new pricing changes and will work itself out over time.
Embroidery super Deal is a scam website. I bought a full membership unlimited and never expire. I bought this in October 2021. Can not use it anymore without having to pay. Buyer beware.
I had the same issue recently. Have you contacted them yet? They fixed the issue for me when I did.
I purchased the whole site and the extra $. I have not been able to access the site to use the patterns. Can someone please help me on this . Thank you
First, ensure you are logged in when downloading the designs. Once you log in and navigate to a design, it should be free when you click to download.
If that doesn’t work, I was able to finally get help after contacting them through their websites at Embroidery Super Deal, Blasto Stitch, and Daily Embroidery. I also sent multiple emails to info[at]embroiderysuperdeal[dot]com and messaged them via their Facebook page. I ultimately got an email from embroiderystorezero[at]gmail[dot]com that fixed my login problem.
It took almost a week for them to figure out and respond, but I recommend trying these troubleshooting steps if you’re having issues.
Not being able to access the site is the same problem I’m having. Haven’t been able to even bring up the site for over a month now. And I’ve had their promotion for purchasing their designs for over three years. I can access the site on my phone but don’t have the software to download the designs. I’ve sent messaged on the Facebook page but have had no response. Guess I’ll try sending an email to [email protected]
If you haven’t cleared your computer’s cache/cookies lately or tried a new browser, that might be something else worth trying. I never did receive a Facebook response. Email was the only way I could get in touch, and it was not a fast response. However, I just checked, and the site is working right now for me.
