Embroidery Images offers Puffy or 3D Embroidery. This embroidery technique uses foam to achieve the extreme 3 dimensional effect. The foam comes in several different widths and colors to help achieve the overall effect. This embroidery decoration technique also requires the thread count to almost double, so that the foam will not be exposed through the thread. Puffy embroidery/3D embroidery works best with block or large round shaped areas. Artwork for puffy embroidery should also have rounded corners so that the needle perforates the corners of the design and covers the foam completely. Paying attention to the artwork in advance will help your design pop/come alive after stitching. Hats are generally work best with this type of embroidery application. 3D embroidery will make your logo stand out in a crowd.
