Puff Digitizing can be done for the overall design or in conjunction with the traditional form of machine embroidery (flat/2D) to show levels and definition within the design by focusing on specific elements to puff out in the finalized design. The process is simple enough as it is digitized in a way that the machine makes an outline for the embroiderer to place the 3D foam on (the element that makes the embroidery puff out) and the rest of the embroidery is carried on like every other machine embroidery process.
