What do you mean by Cheap? what is your budget?
I dont think you will find any used machine for less than $4000 that has a cap attachement.

I have never come across a machine that does hats only. Most machines have attachments that will do hats, flats, etc.

All machines are basically manufactured with "Flat Beds", idealy to do embroidery on garments or cloth. Some of these machines are capable to use "Attachments" to enhance the functionality of the machine. Cap attachments are used to do embroidery on caps.

Make sure you buy a machines along with the right cap attachment manufactured by the same company. If you buy a machine without an attachment and then search for an attachment for that particluar machine, you might end up sellling the machine. Just make sure cap attachments are available for the machine you buy !

Good Luck !

Hi,
We're pretty new to all this but my sister has a Brother PR600 WITHOUT a cap attachment. Despite that she still produces embroidered caps. As long as the cap is not too rigid, you can use the supplied hoops. I'm dubious but she seems to get away with it.
Any comments?

Uskvale,

Yes you can make embroidery on caps that are basic adn have the front part without ant seams. It is a bit hard to attach a 5 panel or 6 panel cap on a hoop, some people manage to attach them as well.

The best option is the cap attachment which makes life very easy.

Thanks for confirming that. I agree it makes more sense to buy the cap attachment but I think I'll carry on until I've covered the 700 I need. Shouldn't take long.
Thanks
Peter

Default Re: Cap embroidery Machines

Just to let you know, if you haven't already figured it out, caps are NOT easy. I bought my machine intending on doing hats and wanted to make sure that I could embroider everywhere on them. Now I have 4 other embroiders sending people to me to do hats because they don't want to. Some hats are easier than others, and for the most part, no 2 sew the same. That is not the easiest way to get into embroidery.

PS: ALWAYS get more hats than you need to produce. It never fails, something stupid will happen and you will bust 1. Plus it gives you something to practice on every once in a while. Hats aren't like flats where you can just throw 2 sheets of backing on the machine and do a sew out.

I totally agree with you Jubilee.

I would also recomend finding a good digitizing company who would digitize the designs very well to suit caps. Make sure you ask your digitizer that the design you ordered is for CAPS.

Normally a design made for cloth/garment will not work well on a CAP.
