As summer time approaches the request for hats and visors really start to multiply. In my embroidery business, I supply a number of local country club tennis teams with uniforms and accessories. Hats and visors are very popular. I struggle when embroidering visors and have had to make adjustments to the design and hooping technique.
Step 1: Use a heavy weight tear away stabilizer (2.5 oz). This stabilizer is also used for hat embroidery. Use spray adhesive if needed to hold in place. Cut the section of stabilizer large enough to extend to the upper area of the visor.
Use small binder clips to tightly hold the stabilizer to the visor at the top edge.
Step 2: Use the large target ruler to mark the center of the visor, hold the ruler in place with painters tape or clips and position a target sticker in the hole.(Hats have a center stitched seam, but visors do not) Remove the ruler and keep the target sticker in place until the crosshair on the target sticker is lined up with the needle.
