Puff Embroidery, otherwise known as 3D embroidery adds extra depth and dimension to your custom embroidered apparel. A 3D effect is achieved by placing a layer of foam under the area where the design will be embroidered. Once the foam is in place, the design is stitched over with your thread color of choice. Applying this style of puff embroidery requires an extra layer of thread so the foam beneath the design will not show through.
Puff Embroidery looks best when used on designs with rounded corners and fonts with large block letters, allowing the foam to be covered completely by the stitches. Due to the extra layers needed to create a three dimensional look, thicker fabrics are preferred for using this technique.
