3D puff logo Digitizing

3D Puff Digitizing, also known as puff embroidery or foam embroidery, is a technique for creating 3D embroidery designs on hats using foam. The process of 3D Puff Digitizing is completely different from the process of regular embroidery digitizing. This is because you are working with actual foam as opposed to just fabric and thread.  As 3D puff logo digitizing gives your design a 3D appearance; therefore, it is created in several stages and requires special techniques and tricks.

3D puff Foam 

Recommended Foam size is 2mm-3 mm, these foam are available at any arts and crafts store which are very affordable.   They also come in a variety of color and sizes . When it comes to color schemes, make sure that the color you choose matches the shade used in the 3D part of the design

Material needs for 3D/Puff hat embroidery

  • Hat
  • 3D foam (2mm -3mm)
  • Scissor (To cut the foam)
  • Tape (Use to stick foam on hat)
  • Heat gun (to burn off some left off pieces)

3D Logo Digitizing 

In 3D puff digitizing, design evaluation is a very important step. Not all designs can be digitized in 3D, and there are several things to think about before you digitize a 3D puff logo. For 3D, the order in which the design will be stitched will be very important.

How it works is that the underlay of the design is stitched first. The border will then be done. Since the 3D puff has many steps, the 3D part will be put off until the very end. Now once border is done we can put the foam at 3d stitch area we need to hold the foam which is where the strips of tape come in. In order to ensure that the foam stays in place, you will tape a piece of material on the edges of the foam we need to make sure to cut the foam bit extra than what is required So that the needle wouldn’t go into the holding tape itself. Once foam is placed we can run tack down stitch which is essential part in 3d embroidery later follow be satin stitch.


  • Satin Path Stitches are the only way to do Puff. You can’t do puff embroidery with fill stitch.
  • Make your stitches at least 25% wider. You may achieve this via pull compensation
  • The Open Ends of satin stitch must be capped 
  • Run stitch or border stitch should be use around the border which helps to cut the foam.
  • Increase density if required to get better result sometime you need up to 75%.
  • You may also need to loosen your top thread tension a small amount when sewing the Puff embroidery.
  • Satin stitch area must be under 12 mm
