Cap Embroidery with Melco Embroidery Machines

Cap embroidery presents unique challenges to many embroiderers. No two cap brands or styles are the same. The panels are all cut differently and the front panels are backed and constructed differently. This means that it is very difficult to make a cap framing system that fits every possible cap product with exactly the same result. For this challenge, we need to expand two skill sets, a) digitizing and b) machine operation.

Basic Rules for Puff

1. The portion of the design that will be puffed must be the last section to sew. You will be laying down a piece of 3-D foam, so all flat sections of the embroidery must be sewn first.
