When I emboider a polo piqué I look at the label it tells me it is a100% cotton what do I digitize it for piqué or cotton?
My dealer keeps telling me cotton but is this true?

If you asked me to digitize a design and said it was 100% cotton material, I would then ask is it knit or woven. If you answer it is going onto a knit I would digitize the design different to one going onto a woven. Also the texture of the fabric is important. Texture affects how the design will stitch out.

A 100% cotton jersey t-shirt, a 100% cotton pique polo and 100% cotton cap - I would not digitize the design the same just because they are all 100% cotton.

While the material is 100% cotton, this extra info, in this case a pique knit, would then allow me to tweak the comp settings, adjust underlay, stitch length and density etc for the garment.

That's how I would do it.

Digitize for pique. The weave (pique) is more important than the fabric content (cotton, blend, etc.).

Thanks all you guys and girls!
I am using Wilcom deco, but I let someone else do most of the digitizing.
How ever when I do it myself(small stuff) I 'd have to know.

I am not familiar with DecoStudio layout.
But I have attached a screen shot showing some of Embroidery Studio selections for fabric assistant.

For the job you originally posted about, I would use pique.
