What is machine embroidery, how does it work, and what are the benefits of choosing this method over some of the others? We’re going to answer all of the questions you might have about the process here.
What is machine embroidery?
The term “machine embroidery” refers to the process of using a sewing machine or specialist embroidery machine to create a pattern on a textile of your choice. It is most commonly used commercially, as it’s a great tool for branding garments. The industrial and commercial embroidery machines, like the ones we use here at SewPro, have a hooping or framing system that holds a fabric's embroidery area taut under the sewing needles. The area is then moved automatically by the machine to create the design from a pre-programmed digital embroidery pattern.
Embroidery machines will vary in their capabilities, and they all require different degrees of user input. Some will require you to change the thread colour during the process, while others will be able to trim and change colours automatically. Also, multi-needle machines can consist of numerous sewing heads, which means they can embroider multiple garments at once. At SewPro, we always try to ensure we have the latest technology in order to create the best quality products possible. So, we have very modern machines that do most of the work for us. We simply load them up with the most suitable threads, attach your garments, and let the machines do their magic.
What is embroidery digitisation?
You may hear us talk about digitising a logo this is simply the process of converting an existing piece of artwork, such as a company logo, into a stitch file that an embroidery machine can then read and use to replicate the design on a garment.
Benefits of machine embroidery?
When you're looking to have clothing and accessories branded or decorated with a design of your choice, there will be other techniques, such as screen printing & heat pressed vinyl that you can consider. But, there are a range of advantages to machine embroidery that will make it the most suitable choice for certain projects.
Its reliable, the equipment is provided with a design file. The design will then be copied onto your fabric, achieving an identical image each and every time. This means, if you're embroidering several pieces of clothing, they'll all be branded or decorated in the exact same way, which is ideal if you're mass-producing items such as work-wear to school uniforms. As well as being very reliable, machine embroidery is quick, which means big jobs can be completed in a short space of time. While the designing of a logo might take a long time, once the design file is created, it simply needs to be fed into the embroidery machine, which will get to work. And, a lot of this process is automated, which means everything can be done with minimal interruptions. Machine embroidery requires very little manual labour, and this will often mean that it's a relatively affordable option.
Whether you're looking to brand your work-wear or organise sports team kits, it's well worth considering machine embroidery. Not only will you get a very professional finish, but the job will be completed very quickly. Plus, you're likely to find it's a lot more affordable than some of the alternatives. If you decide to go down this route, make sure you get in touch to discuss your requirements.
This embroidery technique consists of having a piece of the art or lettering that puffs out above the rest of the design. You usually see this type of embroidery on baseball caps or sports hats. 3D puff embroidery gives depth and height to a design by raising the logo or some of the lettering. Sewing 3d puff embroidery is a process that generates incredible results.
Will my design work for Custom 3D Cap Embroidery?
So you want your design to be 3D, raised off the cap and look the business, but will your design work? For best reults make sure your graphic lines are between 3mm and 10mm for a good result. We will always advise you on your logo if it will work or not, because we want you to be amazed with the passion we put into our work. We will need to see your design for a accurate quote and to make sure it will work, or any adjustments that could be made to make it work.
Minimum Order Quantity?
We get asked this question alot, what is the minimum amount of caps that can be ordered with 3D embroidery. The answer is 1, BUT and this is a BIG BUT. The cost of the 1 custom cap is expensive as the cap takes on the entire setup cost of the specialised 3D digitising, the setup of 1 embroidery machine to run a single cap with all the tests to make sure it’s as perfect it can be and this all takes time which adds up.
Cost of 3D Cap Embroidery?
Costing all depends on your logo. We have to work out stitch counts, quantity of caps required, style of caps and to make sure your going to have a good 3D embroidered result.

You may never have thought about buying your uniforms in bulk, preferring perhaps to buy as many as you need at any particular moment in time. This is fine for some, but lots of people choose the bulk-buying option due to several key factors and benefits. The advantages of bulk-buying are clear:
• Low Prices
Possibly the number one benefit for buying uniforms in bulk is the fact that you’ll save money. When an item is hard to get hold of, the prices go up for buyers but when there is plenty of supply, the prices go down and this is true of bulk-buying. In other words, when you buy more than one product at a time, the price tends to plummet, equalling a happier customer!
Furthermore, by bulk buying you save a lot of money on those sometimes hefty delivery charges, especially if you spend on extra fast deliveries. Ordering bulk means you only pay this once and not multiple times across the entire year.
By purchasing in bulk, you will not only save money, but will then have the option to spend more on other areas – on accessories for example. Therefore, for the same price you get a lot more for your hard earned cash and enables you to gain from other facets of your business.
Purchasing from a high street retailer limits your choices massively. You can effectively only get what is on the rail in front of you. The best you could do is trudge from shop to shop looking for similar products, but this can be a demoralising experience. Instead, buying in bulk enables you to choose from their entire collection of stock – if they have it, then it can be yours!
Tired of constantly ordering and re-ordering every few days or weeks? Well, bulk-buying eliminates this frustrating process and allows you the time to get on with other important tasks, without worrying. You can have enough stock to last the whole year round if you choose, and so after one round of ordering, will not have to stress anymore for a long, long time!
You can easily choose how much of each item you would like too. You will be given great selection of amounts and needn’t buy more than you need of any product. There are often different ‘packs’ that you can choose, and each of these contains a mixture of products that you need.
