Just threw EBauer Trail Soft Shell jackets on our 6 head tajima. The pink and the gray jackets ran great, but the navy jackets look like this!
Product Textile Font Sleeve Rectangle

The material just...shredded. Those spots next to the capital letters that look like runs showing are actually tears in the fabric. The small text looks MUCH worse on them as well. We're using ballpoint 75/11s and after these jackets we ran this design on several other garment types with no issues.
Anyone seen anything like this? Any advice? It's going to be interesting to see if our distributor will agree that these are somehow defective...

Hi
This comes from a really digitizing. You can see from the fonts and the density used. Connecting stitches are no good and there are distortions in the text. Contact us and we will edit for you free of charge. Send the DST along with the original artwork. Make sure the fabric has a good backing. Also check the age of the fabric of the jacket used. It should not tear apart.

Just crazy. I looked at the specs for it and nothing different about the blue but the color. They are waterproof so maybe something with that. Seems like the correct needle as well.

The small lettering looks horrible. Try switching to a 65/9 bp and 60w thread. also it doesn't look like your using enough backing. what backing are you using cutaway or tearaway.

Another thought would be to use a fusable mesh stabilizer and then your normal stabilizer and solvy on top. That might help the fraying.

Thanks, will give it a try. The supplier also said I should be using sharps so we're going to try that as well. Still doesn't explain why the other color jackets ran fine though!

too many needle piercings too close together will cut the fabric, think of a bill with the tear-off portion at the bottom. too easy for the dots to connect together. try upping your underlay for good color coverage, then thin down the density on your top satin stitch.
might loosen your thread tension just a pinch also.
and try a new needle - a tiny burr will slice rather than spread the fabric.
good luck!

Yikes! You definitely need a need a smaller needle and make sure it's a light ball point. Did you digitize this or did someone else? Impression Magazine has good tips and tricks. Usually when you get this "cookie cutter" look - your needle is too sharp.. Embroidery Process + Techniques | Commercial Machines | Impressions

I agree with @djque I would just add that this a great opportunity to learn, run a bunch of tests on these garments (if they’re going to trash) try different settings, needless, threads, backing etc…
