With baseball season on us let’s talk about one of the latest trends in baseball cap embroidery, 3-D puff Embroidery. This style of embroidery is where the design (or portions of the design) is raised up off the surface of the garment. Typically, this specialized embroidery decoration is process reserved for hats. 3-D puff embroidery is a process that requires a high level of expertise both in the embroidery design digitizing set up process as well as during the machine embroidery process. We at American Stitched Embroidery and Screen Printing have the intimate understanding and expertise level needed to understand the marriage between excellent digitizing and superior embroidery technique. No place does our embrodiery skills become more evident than with 3-D Puff embroidery. First off, for the most part 3-D is almost always done on 6 panel hats which are tricky enough to embroider without complicating the issue. Throw in 3-D embroidery design and the complexity factor is significantly increased. Furthermore, people are often teased by very fancy designs found in the retail marketplace for major league sport teams, etc. What those consumers do not realize is many of those hats are embroidered overseas on flat hat material panels and then cut and sewn into hats. While this does not necessarily make it easier the decorator can certainly get away with more especially regarding size of the design on a hat panel. Rest assure that we at American Stitched Embroidery and Screen Printing both understand the process as well as the limitations. So, if you are interested in learning more about the process or are in the market for some new hat please feel free to reach out and one of us would be glad to help.

Recently American Stitched came up with a way to “reinvent” a traditional embroidery technique and had to share with our customers! A longtime customer of ours, who likes to have gifts personalized with embroidery and monograms for friends and family, came to us wanting to have a blanket monogramed for his blind mother in law, who recently lost her husband of many years. While traditional embroidery is slightly raised on completely flat solid fabric, the blanket he brought us was soft. From experience we knew that embroidering on soft fabric like the blanket that her initials would blend in with the surrounding fluffy fabric, and we wanted to make sure his gift was perfect.
