I have looked at doing this for quite a few years this is what i have found.

if you want to do embossing there are many places whre you can get dies made in the united states.

there are 3 main companies i have found for embossing presses

Permaboss. which is in canda (good guys the press is too expensive for me right now but its top notch, big hydrolic press)

Printa which is in i believe washinton state and i beleve (great guys to deal with , once i get the cash its going to them, its air operated and run on a regular 110)

Geo knight (never talked to them, their press run on 220 and is also air operated)

Geo knight and printa curiously sell their machines first as a high speed heat tranfer system and an embossing press like second or 3rd.

Permaboss is ALL about embossing its what they do but they are by far the most expensive and will probably give you the most support when it comes to using appliques and flocks and doing 3d embossing using those materials.

Printais frigging great, they are about a quarter of the price and can do t-shrts, fleece, leather, they just dont have the experience with appliques and such. But they are great guys to work with. Of all the backing i probably prefer the ones they offer the most. Dont get me wrong permaboss has good backing i just dont lik the feel of it one my skin as much as the others.

The die i bought was through OWOSSO Graphic. Really nice folks to deal with also. Their business is DIES. They can make damn near any time of dies you would need. Great people to deal with and pretty resonable prices.

that should give you a starting off place to call and talk too. Permaboss has probably the most kick *** gallery on embossing. Only ones that have one that might be better are the guys at RFappliquewelding.com they can do embossing. But they are predominatley just rf welders. Great presses not cheap but very nice. They are mainly for wearable shirts and stuff. Absolutely no leather or thich items. their presses just dont have the oomph.

any other questions drop me a line

We have one from Practix Mfg out of GA. have had it for about 15 years, still works great but we haven't embossed in years. We use it for a heat press for out DTG, Lettering and Numbers on shirts. Good customer support and they carry different backings and supplies. They can also direct you to some dye makers.

We have the OK-375 and the cool part is the dual working surface. You can load the next item while the first one presses. It also loads like a screen press or you can just lay a shirt on top for transfers. The speed of the heating element moving from side to side can be adjusted with air pressure. I'm sure the hat press is the same. Here's a pic of the kind we have.

hei, i'm a newbie here...
last week i've been to canton fair. there is a 3d emboss for tshirt too but, they can make from the computer to a somekind of papper, i don't know they call it.it's like sticker.
so firstly we open the surface and put into the side of tshirt. and using press heating machine for 10 second after that it can be 3d emboss, so it can be seperated from machine.
they can make own design to sticker paper first.so simple.
did anyone know this how to make /to buy this machine.
for further information open www.j-cross.com
thank's before

Question Re: emboss

no...i think it's different than puf transfer.
mm they call it "solid foaming transfer paper" they use that. after press by heat 10 seconds will become 3d emboss.
i think that is from korea. its only one.
the problem is how can they make from 1 piece of transfer paper become embossed after got heat.

yes the puff product from siser is a printable product. I do believe most of the puff materials are printable using solvent or eco solvent printers. Maybe not all?

Hey!

I donīt know if your still looking for a good embossing machine, but maybe others are interested:

We have a TPM Multifunction machine for years and we are very satisfied!

With this machine its also possible to screenprint, weld PVC / Flock, transferprint and dye-cut etc.

http://www.tpm-germany.com/

We also made business with Permaboss, but like *agensop* already said ist very expensive! And later we found out that they just copy old German machines and sell them overpriced...

And the materials you need for embossing and PVC / Flock welding you get for the have price at TPM compared to Permaboss.
