Custom Embroidered Patches

custom-embroidered-patches
The process of making exceptional quality custom embroidered patches that we produce is based on our ability to accurately translate your design, logo or idea into the medium of artwork (digitizing) to our computer controlled embroidery machines.

We start with a very high quality twill using equally high quality colored threads then sew the computer generated pattern of threads onto the twill to form the exact design that you want.

Depending on how the final product is to be used, we apply different types of backing material to the underside of the twill of the finished patch.

Embroidery Coverage

Embroidery Coverage

The illustrations on this page can serve as a guide to the percentage of embroidery coverage on your patches.

Consider the embroidery patch samples illustrated with the understanding that the dark or shaded
areas are embroidered and the white area represents the unembroidered underlying twill.

How much coverage does your patch embroidery design have?

Simply compare it to the examples and find the one that looks closest – it is not an exact science
and we are always here to help you and answer any questions.
Most embroidered patches run between 50% and 80% of coverage

And that makes it simple for you to closely estimate your price per patch.

Since very few patches fall in the category below 50% embroidered coverage, and the cost of setting up the machines and designing the patch is virtually the same for all designs, we start our pricing with the 50% category.

Twill & Thread Colors

Embroidered patches are composed at least of two elements: The base fabric material (Twill) and the threads that stitch the design together (Threads).

There are many different twill and thread suppliers and the colors and shades vary, and althought we make a great effort matching your specificed colors RGB, CMYK, PMS or just by name (such as “Kelly Green”), color is subjective to each person’s eye, computer resolutions and calibrations, ink in your favorite printer and so forth.

The most common standarized color system in the world is the Pantone Matching System (PMS) widley used in the printing business, which produces chips and booklets made to match your colors to one of their own. We use one of these booklets to match the specified colors and then match to the closest thread/twill color available to us, therefore we cannot guarantee 100% color matching, we can just give you our own closest match.

Borders

Laser Cut

Your patch has two options for border type. Depending on the shape your art is will determine what type of border is possible.

A Merrow Border is typical on simple shapes such as round, shield, square or rectangles. This type of border seals the edges of your patch with actual thread by stitching around the edge of the patch from front to back until the entire outer edge has been finished.

The thinnest Merrow Border possible is 3mm (~1/8″)

Laser Cut Border is used if you design is geometric or has a complex shape with sharp edges to it. This type of border seals the edges by “heat sealing the patch threads so they are sealed to prevent thread fray. This melted edge is not clear to the naked eye.

The thinnest Laser Cut Border is 1mm (~3/64″)
