Default Newbie Dri Fit Embroidery Alignment Issue

Newbie to embroidery. Have been doing screen printing for quite some time now but the new Barudan we have has its learning curves at times for sure. Anyways, having an issue with a logo we are trying to embroidery left chest on some Nike Dri Fit Polos for a client. Each time we embroider it the alignment on a couple sports of the design seem to be off. I have asked the digitizer to redigitize the file at least three times now to try to prevent this from happening. The issue has gotten slightly better but it still remains & I don't think the quality is passable to hand a customer. Being that I am a newbie I wanted to make sure their was nothing I was missing that was causing this on my end & it was more or so a file issue with the way its being digitized.

For specs & info we have a Barudan single head, running this job at 800 spm. I'm using tear away backing with a little adhesive on top then a layer of solve on top of the garment.

Attached is a photo of an example of my issue with the areas of concern highlighted. Any suggestions or tips would be greatly appreciated. This job originally I thought would be completed within a week or two is now well over two weeks & I would love to just wrap it up.

it should be an easy fix for the digitizer to just skootch the fill on that one. make sure there is plenty of underlay. i would use a crosshatch....and i would use a cutaway backing...and make sure its hooped with the shirt...not just slid underneath. tell the digitizer that you should also probably have a little less density on it since its going on a dri fit. good digitizing saves a pile of headaches and time. no way this should be over 2 weeks of back and forth!

Use cutaway and slow down your machine. 60 wt thread will improve the clarity of your text. Cutaway will help keep the embroidery looking good after the item is repeatedly laundered.
