Flat versus 3D puff embroidery

the difference bethween flat and 3d puff embroidery


3D puff embroidery is when you see the raised embroidery threads. In the image above, it’s the white embroidery. It costs an extra to produce a 3D puff embroidery.

Flat embroidery is when the thread lays flat on the hat. In the image above, it’s the gray thread.

Partial 3D puff, however, is when a combination of both flat ( white text ) and 3D puff ( green text ) are used in one hat.
