Puffy Foam with Embroidery

Today we are going to talk about this magical thing we call puffy foam! So what is it?  Puffy foam is something we can use when embroidering a logo on a hat to give it a raised, 3D look.

Embroidery on Caps or Hats.  So many types of caps...How do I choose?

We have a few different types of hats, and they have different clasps in the back of the hat, as far as the way they fasten to the back of your head. For example, this is a classic, what we call kind of a trucker's hat. It has a fabric front...
