How to Use ESA Embroidery Glyphs

When we mention ESA Glyphs, think of ancient Egyptian “hieroglyphics,” something that is a shape or symbol. Our ESA Glyph packs load directly into your Wilcom E series or Hatch embroidery software like an ESA font does. The only difference is when you use them, a shape or symbol appears instead of a letter. ESA Glyphs allow you to easily create shapes & objects for your embroidery projects with the click of a button. View the instructions below on how to use them:

Step 1: Select the “Lettering” tool under the “Lettering / Monogramming” drop-down menu. From here, select your ESA Glyph font in the drop-down bar.

Step 2: Select your ESA Glyph. All of our Glyphs begin with the letters Zz_ so that they appear at the bottom of your ESA font list.
