Flat embroidery refers to a basic embroidery technique that uses a variety of decorative stitches, including the satin stitch. It involves stitching with embroidered threads onto various fabrics, preferably using a satin stitch for a smooth and polished finish. Flat embroidery is popular for custom caps, t-shirts, and other garments, allowing custom embroidered designs and logos to stand out. This technique requires embroidery digitizing to convert the design into a format readable by an embroidery machine. Flat embroidery works well on thicker fabrics and can create simple and sophisticated designs, adding a touch of elegance to any apparel or accessory.
The main difference between flat embroidery and 3D puff embroidery lies in the technique and appearance. Flat embroidery is a basic embroidery style using decorative stitches and embroidered threads on fabric, often done with a satin stitch. It creates a smooth and polished design without much height or dimension. On the other hand, 3D puff embroidery adds depth and texture to the design by using raised embroidery threads, resulting in a raised or “puffed” effect. This technique is commonly used to create a three-dimensional appearance, adding extra dimension and visual interest to the embroidered design.
