THE KEY TO BEST RESULTS
THE KEY TO BEST RESULTS
Puff 3D cap embroidery uses a foam base to achieve a three dimensional effect. The foam comes in black & white with two widths 2mm and 3mm to accommodate various products. Raised 3D cap embroidery requires the thread or stitch count to tripple, so that the foam will not be exposed through the thread.
3D cap embroidery works best with block or large round shaped letters. Artwork for puff embroidery should have slightly rounded corners so that the needle perforates the corners of the design and covers the foam completely making your design come alive.
Good spacing between letters or shapes is also required with puff as the foam causes the shapes to expand which in turn closes spacing ie: letters will touch if spacing is not correct.
Avoid embroidering over puff as it will flatten the puff beneath it.
Graphics lines should be between 3mm and 10mm in thickness. Lines under 3mm can still be embroidered with puff but the puff will not be as high or wide as the 10mm. The thinner the line, the less puff effect.
Puff 3D does not work successfully with complex detailed designs or lines under 2.5mm or over 12mm.
So you want your design to be 3D, raised off the cap and look the business, but will your design work?
As shown on the left, make sure your graphic lines are between 3mm and 10mm for a good result. Design By Creative will always advise you on your logo if it will work or not, because we want you to be amazed with passion we put into our work.
We will need to see your design for a accurate quote and to make sure it will work, or any adjustments that could be made to make it work.
We get asked this question a lot; what is the minimum amount of caps that can be ordered with my custom design 3D embroidered on caps?
The answer is 1, BUT and this is a big ‘BUT’. The cost of the 1 Custom Cap is expensive as the cap takes on the entire setup cost of the specialised 3D digitising, the setup of 1 embroidery machine to run a single cap with all the tests to make sure it’s as perfect it can be and this all takes time which adds up.
Costing all depends on seeing your logo.
We have to work out stitch counts, quantity of caps required, style of caps and to make sure your going to have a good 3D embroidered result.
