Embroidered Caps For Shop Uniforms

Embroidering custom logo on caps as part of a shop uniform is a great way to promote your business and increase customer loyalty. Here are some things to keep in mind while getting your shop uniforms embroidered. The time it takes to complete the pre and post-production, as well as the downtime associated with 3D puffy embroidery, should be kept in mind. And while it may seem time-consuming to create a 3D logo on a flat-stitch cap, the end result will be worth it.

Flat-stitch to 3D puffy embroidery

Puff embroidery is an interesting method to add depth and height to an embroidered design. This type of embroidery is commonly seen on sports and baseball caps. The puff material, along with proper digitizing, makes the design appear three-dimensional. This type of embroidery can help you win customers, but it’s not appropriate for all shop uniforms. If you’re a small business owner, you might want to consider starting with a flat-stitch design before moving on to 3D puffy embroidery.

Choose from a simple design to create an impactful look. Simple designs look elegant and simple embroidery techniques are easy to master. Basic designs with few details can look striking when embroidered in white thread on a black cap. Similarly, you can opt for an elaborate design with lots of detail. You can choose a design with different colors, and then select the best ones for the contrasting materials.

Time spent on pre and post production of 3D puffy embroidery

For a perfect 3D puffy embroidery, a highly skilled artist is needed to create the requisite embroidery file and a machine that specializes in this type of custom embroidered cap. Puffy foam caps have a high spoilage rate compared to other types of embroidery. In addition, a hat’s upper thread can become stuck in the rotary hook, which houses the bobbin case, causing the machine to stop abruptly.

Although 3D puff embroidery can be performed on almost any fabric, it is more suitable for heavier fabrics. Lighter fabrics can sag due to the extra weight of 3D puffy embroidery, so it’s best to stick with standard embroidery. If you’d like to have an elaborate logo, try using a heavier fabric. Then, you can try to combine 3D puffy embroidery with flat embroidery on hats.

Downtime for 3D puffy embroidery

When you decide to add 3D puffy embroidery to your shop uniforms, you’ll have to consider the time involved in post-production cleaning. If you don’t have the time and expertise to do the extra work, you’ll end up with one cap in your run that gets stuck. This not only costs you money, but it also pushes other orders to the back of the line. This will make your customers feel like their orders are on the back burner, or worse, that the embroidery person is lazy. To learn more about cap embroidery visit
