The ART format is one of many design file types utilized in the embroidery community and is the native format used by BERNINA sewing machines and software. Other embroidery formats include .PES, .VP3, .VIP, .JEF, .HUS, and .PCS.

There are several different versions of the ART format, and older versions of BERNINA software may not open newer versions of ART files. Also, beginning with version 5 of ARTlink, the software saves designs with file extensions that reflect the version of the software. For example, ARTlink 5 saves designs as .ART50 files, and ARTlink 6 saves designs as ART60 files.
