HOW TO CHOOSE AN EMBROIDERY MACHINE?

QUANTITY OF NEEDLES 

The number of needles means the maximum colors of your embroidery works. Make sure your machine can embroider more colors as much as possible, this will prevent you from changing threads frequently, thus saving your time and increasing production. 15 needles is the standard number for hat embroidery machine, which meets the requirement of more colors while cost is limited.

BRANDS

You can choose big brands like Melco and Tajima, but their premium is serious. With the same cost, you can buy several Chinese brand machines of similar quality, such as BAI. In the early stage of the business, try to reduce investment costs as much as possible. The price of a Chinese brand multi-needles machine is even lower than that of a single-needle machine in Europe and the United States. You can find it out in detail. It is a wise choice for you to choose a Chinese brand embroidery machine with good quality and nice price.

MAX EMBROIDERY AREA

The embroidery area of the embroidery machine also deserves attention, which determines the position you can embroider on the hat. Commonly, an embroidery field for hats should be with maximum height of 83mm & maximum width of 270 degrees.

EMBROIDERY SPEED

The working speed of the embroidery machine determines how long you can finish a work. Usually, we use "SPM" to measure the working speed of embroidery machine, which means stitches per minute. Commonly, the max embroidery speed should be 1200 SPM.

MULTI-FUNCTION

Another feature that should be paid attention to is: Does your embroidery machine support the embroidery of other items? For example: T-shirts, coats, bags, hoodies, socks, etc. This means that in addition to the hat embroidery business, can you also take on other types of business? Try to buy only one machine but can do all kinds of embroidery business.

DELIVERY TIME

Fast delivery is also important. Try to choose suppliers with short delivery periods. As a professional supplier of embroidery machines, BAI has 4 warehouses in the United States, which located in Los Angeles, Houston, Atlanta, and Linden. You can choose to deliver machine to your door (within 7 days) or self pick-up in the warehouse.

AFTER-SALES SERVICE

Pay attention to whether your suppliers can continuously provide good after-sales service. If you encounter some problems after purchasing the machine, can your supplier provide after-sales service for you in time? (for example, basic operation teaching and troubleshooting.) If you can't get support in time, your embroidery business will be greatly affected.

WHERE CAN YOU FIND SUITABLE HAT SUPPLIER? 

In order to reduce your cost, it is best to buy hats in batches or dozens. You can find quality hats with better rice on richword.com and 1688.com.
If you have customized order or sampler order to make 1-2 hats, you can purchase on Amazon, it will be quickly get your hats and finish your order fast.
Temu is a new website, the price is so attractive, but the quality need yourself to compare. Good luck to you.

WHERE CAN YOU FIND THE MOST COST-EFFECTIVE ACCESSORIES ?

For the accessories, sames as hats, you can source them on amazon, richword, 1688 and temu. It would be better if the supplier who sells embroidery machines also sells accessories, because you can find more matching consumables, which can reduce the probability of mismatch between your machine and accessories. This saves you the time and energy of picking.

WHAT PATTERN IS MORE SUITABLE FOR HAT EMBROIDERY ?

First of all, you need to measure the size of the embroidery area of the hat you want embroider, and then find the pattern that can match the embroidery area. It is not recommended to take patterns that are too large or too small. A pattern that is too large cannot be fully displayed on the hat, and a pattern that is too small looks unattractive.
Second, For men's hats, you need to choose blue, black, gray, army green and other dark colors for embroidery. Hats for ladies can be chosen in pink, yellow, white, orange and other colors. it will be more popular and attractive.
