Stitch Tip [Video]: Embroidering on the Back of Caps

Stitch It International
Tuesday, December 01, 2020

Having designs on the back of caps is a popular choice that adds a more creative touch to any kind of hat. Achieving this can be tricky unless you have the right tools. The key is using a high quality, firm cap frame to hold your hat and design in place. This prevents scarring and keeping the frame from popping apart when embroidering. Hooptech’s T-bar framing gauge and back of cap clamps are our favorite choices for easy use and quality designs. We also use a SWF embroidery machine for smoother and cleaner embroidery work.
