What is it?

Wilcom Embroidery Web API (EWA) is Wilcom’s 3rd generation embroidery automation developer tool kit. It provides the embroidery specific back end web services to web developers of embroidery and apparel companies so that they can add embroidery capabilities to their websites, web applications, and internal business systems. 

Put simply… It gives you access to the brains behind our embroidery software so that you can use this to automate your own online embroidery designs. Your website becomes powered by Wilcom’s industry leading software, in a seamless and easy-to-use way. 

Wilcom’s technology can be used within your website to display real time embroidery previews and create actual production files.

For a more product information, please see our API Developer Portal website

How does it work?

The Wilcom Web API is designed for use by web developers, not end users. Embroidery companies who develop (or contract the development of) their own custom websites, or Web Digital Agencies access the API through a subscription to our hosted Web Services.

You sign up for a subscription plan to Wilcom’s EWA API, and then access the technical information required via our API Developer Portal.

Your developers create the user interface within your own website or web application. They add selected embroidery capabilities to the website by making calls to the API using RESTful HTTP: POST commands and receiving results back in a similar way.

EWA uses Wilcom's world renowned embroidery lettering and design software and is fully compatible with Wilcom's popular .EMB design format. 

What does an EWA API subscription provide?

We provide a toolkit for you to integrate our embroidery software capabilities with your website. 
The subscription includes:

  • Access to Wilcom's Embroidery Web API software on Wilcom hosted API server
  • Access to Wilcom’s API Developer Portal, with
  • Detailed developer documentation
  • Dashboard facilities and statistics to manage your use of the API
  • Online forum with other Wilcom API developers
  • Support and expertise to help you integrate the technology
