THINGS TO KEEP IN MIND

  • You can cut the 1,5 mm thick foil with a plotter using a deep-cut blade

 

WHAT IS 3D EMBROIDERY?

  • 3D or relief embroidery consists of stitch shading on a thin, flexible sheet of a spongy material such as 3D or EVA foam. The machine needle pierces the sheet while the stitches overlay and embed the shape. The design completely hides the base fabric making the embroidery stand out. The excess foam can be easily removed once the embroidery is finished

 

EMBROIDERY RECOMMENDATIONS FOR EVA FOAM

  • It is important to work with a low thread count to add more stitches, obtain a proper overlay and make it easier to perforate the foam
  • It is recommended to use an NM 80 ball point needle for cleaner foam perforation
  • Make sure that all sides of the 3D foam are cut during the embroidery process
  • If you want to embroider with the True Type font, you should use a rounded style font. This way, the needle pierces all sides of the letters. Fonts that have a base at the top and bottom of the lettering, or have pointed ends, are also suitable
  • Since foam adds rigidity to the embroidered area, it is important to take this into account when choosing the placement on the garment
  • The colour of the foam and the thread should be similar. This will save the stitches needed to ensure that the thread hides the foam
  • Choose a simple design that has padding stitches. It is possible to embroider a shading stitch area with foam underneath, but the stitches will compress the foam, and the relief may not be uniform
  • Avoid using EVA foam on thin fabrics unless placed on a reinforced area, such as a T-shirt collar
  • Prevent distortion on medium-weight fabrics by using fusible interlinings on the back of them
  • When the design has both padding and shading stitches, it is advisable to embroider the padding stitches first. Then, stop the machine to add the foam and embroider
  • Use the foam in close areas to achieve a 3D look
  • Remove the excess foam from each finished area before moving on to the next
