I need some serious help. I'm tired of outsourcing people to do patches with backing that can be applied by a heat press. I think I want to try the embroidery myself. Is there a good, simple to use embroidery machine that costs under $1000 that I could buy to mainly do baseball caps? Also, something that hooks up to a computer to import designs?

 

Thanks. I always can count on this forum for answers/advices!

In this price range, I have never seen any cap system. 

 

You can find some used Brother six needle machine with cap system for 3-4 thousand, if you hunt around. Look for a PR-600 or 620.

there is nothing out there that will do hats for $1000 

if you buy second hand, it better be be a tajima or barudan and any of them will be over $5000 if you find a good deal

The real question is are you really to lower your product quality, because with a cheap machine, you are going to get what you pay for. Not only in the quality of the machine and its durability, but in the quality of it output.

I beleive you just stated the biggest problem with cheep machines. I seen a lady at a craft show using 6 needle brother it worked well on flats but it ran slow at the speed that it was running there is no way you can make money I asked her if she runs caps she said only one color designs. Because the machine to do a cap right has to run at 250 stitches per min.

It cost me that much for my hat attachment.

Bite the bullet and drop some serious dime on a good machine. When we started our business we didn't want to spend a ton of money on a machine but we did. We got a loan and bought a brand new Tajima 4 head 15 color embroidery machine.

 It has paid for itself. Anything that you buy in the price range you are looking at will be serious crap. If you are serious about succeeding in the embroidery industry you will invest in quality equipment.
