WHAT'S THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN 2D AND 3D EMBROIDERY?

by Torsten Ritscher on December 28, 2019

Embroidery means decorating fabrics with needles and threads. The two most common types are flat or 2D and 3D embroidery

Flat embroidery is the most commonly used type of sticker, in which the decorative stitch is applied directly to the hat fabric, creating a flat pattern. Flat embroidery can be used for the most intricate and detailed designs without distorting the image, which makes it the most popular choice for embellishments.
3D embroidery, or 3D puff embroidery, is a technique of placing foam under the embroidery stitch to increase the surface area of ​​the design and give the design a three-dimensional look. The 3D embroidery is a cool effect because it can really make a design stand out on a hat. Since foam is applied underneath the embroidery, the best designs for 3D embroidery are simple motifs, such as initials or text. Complex graphics or images are impossible, it is just too difficult to show the fine details.
