Cafepress released a new technology they call “InfiniStitch” that allows for no-minimum create on demand embroidery on a variety of clothing products including hats, polo shirts, denim shirts, and performance jackets.
The technology allows users to embroider photographs or images with an almost unlimited number of thread colors. The process isn’t like traditional embroidery in that it doesn’t require specifically designed art or large order sizes. Users can now have their jps or pngs transformed to embroidery.
I received a sample green military hat with a design that says Ohbama. The hat itself is an Alternative Brand hat and is quite nice and surprisingly fits my fat head. I did not pick the design so I have no idea what the actual image looks which makes it a little hard to do a full review. But the text itself is in a green font with a white outline over what looks like particle board or some type of pattern. To be honest when I pulled the hat out the box I did not know what the hat said at first glance. This might be because the font is almost a graffiti/urban style font so the letters tend to blend in together. No one walking by me on the street would ever be able to read what this hat says. But as far as the actual stitching goes it is nice but I really need to try and use another type of design that allows the text and/or design to be a bit clearer. You can check out some pics of the hat and design below.
