270 Cap System
A 270 cap system allows for embroidery on the surface of caps up to a maximum of 270 degrees. This system allows a user to embroider both the front and sides of the cap simultaneously without the need to re-hoop the cap and sew out a separate design. Two types (adult or child) are available for wide cap frames. The 270 degree cap system can extend from one ear to the other ear covering the front of the cap.
Nowadays, the 270 degree cap system is standard. Prior to the 270 cap system becoming standard, cap systems could only embroider on the front of the cap and not the sides.
