EPCwin - professional embroidery software


Professional working like never before

The creation of embroidery design data for different embroidery processes still is one of the greatest challenges in professional embroidery. In this area, the unique and modular software EPCwin sets completely new standards regarding functionality and user friendliness.

Whether badges, logos, appliqués, haute couture designs, table cloths, curtains, all over or chemical lace embroidery is required, EPCwin features all program steps ranging from designing, drawing and punching up to editing. The user is optimally supported and navigated through all work steps and can thus work quickly and efficiently.

EPCwin is joint development of ZSK – Germany’s leading manufacturer of embroidery machines – and GiS – specialist for embroidery software. You thus benefit from more than 20 years of experience and concentrated know-how.


EPCwin is compatible with all conventional formats from a variety of sources, such as scanner, internet, ClipArt images etc. Useful functions are available to prepare an image. Pictures which are scanned in parts can for example be merged to a complete image exactly and effectively.


Functions specifically developed for embroidery drawing allow contours to be created precisely irrespective of the image quality. Alternatively, vector files of other drawing programs can be imported. Drawing exact contours is the basis of high quality embroidered designs.
