Is The Ultimate Box for you? Just got your new machine and feeling a rush to embroider as many of those beautiful designs as soon as possible?

You already have some experience in embroidery. Would like to edit, re-size, split designs or digitize the originals? Choose the software that fits your needs and budget among many different titles available at prices ranging from $0 for the shareware or trial versions to a couple hundred dollars for a full version embroidery software.

And again, any software used in conjunction with The Ultimate Box and The Ultimate Card provides you with all the necessary tools!

Finally, if you are an expert digitizer and embroidery has become your business, your addiction, or both; you want to be on the leading edge of embroidery technology using top of the line products. You've spent several thousand dollars on the most sophisticated and expensive software.
Now, add The Ultimate Box and The Ultimate Card and you have a perfect match!

The Ultimate Box and The Ultimate Card are about freedom. The freedom to choose which software to use,
how many designs to transfer to the card, and how large those designs will be.

What does The Ultimate Box do?

The Ultimate Box allows you to write to a blank embroidery card as many designs as the card can hold. The best results are achieved by using The Ultimate Box ™ with The Ultimate Card ™ that holds about 500,000 stitches total. Write designs in PES format for Brother, Baby Lock, Bernina Deco, Simplicity and White, or in HUS format for Viking/Husqvarna embroidery machines.

Save designs to your computer by downloading them from the Internet (thousands of free and paid designs), embroidery design cards, CD's, floppy disks, etc. Using the software supplied, browse to the designs folder, select desired patterns and transfer them to the card.

Hello, Yes, the Ultimate box works on Windows 8 computers. Windows 8 is a 64-bit operating system similar to Windows 7, but it requires the Driver Signature Enforcement to be temporarily disabled in order to install non-Microsoft signed device drivers. This procedure is described in Windows 8 books and is not a work-around or a trick. You may click here to open Win8.pdf instructions
I was recently at your site of allbrands and saw the Ultimate Box. I have a Simplicity SE-1 Embroidery Machine with the format of (PES). My question is this, which one of the Ulitimate Boxes would be proper for my machine. I am hoping you will write back and let me know which one would be proper for my machine. Thanks so much.

Donna, if you already have a blank card or one that you can write over, we recommend Vikant Ultimate Box USB Basic 1Slot Box Embroidery Memory Reader Writer v1.04 NO Card, Brother .pes

If you need a blank card and Basic 1 slot for .pes format card, we recommend Vikant Ultimate Box USB Basic 1 Slot Embroidery Reader Writer Box , Blank RewritableCard .pes Format

If you need a blank card and Basic 1 slot PLUS (Format Conversion, Resizing, Rotating, Mirroring) for .pes format card, we recommmend Vikant Ultimate Box Plus 1-Slot Box Embroidery Memory Card Reader Writer with Rewritable Blank Card

This assumes you have no other brand embroidery machine or cards other than .pes for Simplicity SE1 which is same as Brother PE150-500 which are all in .pes format.
Format Conversion would allow you to download free 4x4" designs from the internet in formats other than .pes, then convert them to .pes with the Vikant software.
Hope this information helps. Let me know if you have any other questions.

I had some problem installing the purchase but when I called I was immediately given a number to call for the manufacturer and was walked right thru the installation. Excellent service.

I tried the additional free software and found it too complicated for my level of use. I do not need to create digitized embroidery patterns or organize in depth. I have no need to convert files as I only purchase files for my brand of machine. A very simple viewer that operates independently of the Ultimate box viewer load/unload software would be just the ticket for me.

I have been purchasing things from you for a long time and I am always satisfied with every pruchase. I always tell my friends to go to your website when needing to purchase something.. When I ordered my serger it was because of the gal that I talked to on the phone was a wonderful help in deciding which one to buy. thank you for your great company. a happy customer...

Frances, Florida
I purchased an Ultimate Box from you with the intention of upgrading it to a plus system. I spoke with a service tech (Alex) at the Ultimate Box site who said he could upgrade the actual one I had purchased from you before it was shipped and he did. That pushed the service over the top for me. I was extremely gratified not to have to deal with downloading the software myself and installing it. I have made other purchases from Allbrands in the past and have never been disappointed with any aspect of my purchase. I will continue to recommend your site to my friends and members of my family due to my very favorable experiences with you. Thank you so much!
