Have you ever wondered exactly how people get all or part of their embroidered design to have that raised look? The fact is that this is accomplished with 3D puff embroidery. If you find yourself wondering how the 3D Puff Embroidery Tulsa effect is done, the simple answer is we add foam before the embroidery work is done. There are a few steps involved but that is the secret. Below you will find a few examples that were created at 918 Design Company in Tulsa.

3D Puff Embroidery Tulsa 1Do you want to make your embroidered apparel stand out – literally – from everyone else and have that unique look on your custom embroidered caps? 3D puff embroidery may be your answer to help create your own unique look. 918 Design Company located in Tulsa, OK utilizes expert digitizing to create the best possible stitch files along with highly trained machine operators so that your 3D Puff Embroidery Tulsa looks amazing every time. Not only is 3D puff embroidery timeless but it looks sharp, too! This type of embroidery is often chosen all or in part for embellishment on baseball caps, but can be utilized on other 3D Puff Embroidery Tulsa items such as bags and jackets.

The Process – 918 Design Company and Our Tulsa Embroidery Custom
First, we choose the garment, cap, or bag. 3D puff embroidery works best on items that can handle the increased stitch count and the additions of the foam. Next, we look at the logo. 3D puff embroidery works best on thicker lettering. Rounded corners are preferred to sharp corners. Our friendly, experienced staff can help you with this step over the phone, via email, or in person at our office in Tulsa. To begin, we look at the digitized embroidery file and verify that everything looks good and that it is ready for production. Next, a member of the 918 Design Company team in Tulsa will hoop the hat or other item to prepare it to be placed on our commercial embroidery machines. After the hat is secured to our embroidery machine, we trace the design to insure proper placement and verify everything is centered. At this point, we start the machine to run any base embroidery that is not 3D puff. The machine has a stop code programmed so it stops automatically and alerts the machine operator to add the foam to the hat. We have foam in many colors so we are able to choose a color that matches the thread the best so the end result has a very finished look. Once the embroidery is complete, our team removes it from the hoop and it goes to the next step which is the finishing process. During this step the excess foam is removed from the outer edges and small areas like the inside of the O’s and A’s. Our team member trims any stray threads that may be left behind. Finally, a 918 Design Company team member applies a small amount of heat to achieve the satin smooth finish that everyone loves to see. Boom! Your custom cap is ready for you to wear, complete with 3d puff embroidery!

One more example is this devil design that a customer provided. Part of this logo is 3D puff and part of it is regular flat embroidery. The puff embroidery on this cap gives a different look but adds a lot of dimension to this logo and gives it a totally different look than would have been achieved with regular embroidery. The great thing is we can take the same logo and convert it to flat embroidery for your dryfit shirts that you will wear with the hats to complete your project.
