3D Puff

3D puff embroidery takes direct embroidery to a new level. The design is raised off the surface giving it both depth and dimension. 3D puff embroidery is most commonly seen on headwear and is best for bold designs with low to mid detail.



Applique embroidery provides a patch-like look to your logo but is embroidered directly to the product. It can be used in conjunction with direct embroidery to provide a clean and sophisticated look. Applique embroidery is best used for designs with high fill areas and small detail.



Specialty embroidery includes wool, metallic and fire-resistant (FR) threads. Wool and metallic provide an eyecatching look to compliment the design. FR provides the functionality needed for designs exposed fire. Specialty embroidery is best used for designs with low to mid detail.


Patches are an item that can be applied to headwear and various other apparel items, such as a jacket, polo, etc. They give a unique look and style to the item by creating an off-the-surface effect.
