What are the PATCHES that we are offering?
- Embroidered Patches (a.k.a. cloth badge) are created by interlacing threads together, resulting in a heavier embroidery thread. This overall makes the patch feel thicker while giving off a certain lift and a 3D look.
- Woven patches are generally done by stitching a design with threads into a piece of fabric. These patches are perfect for you if your design is very precise and has small details or fine lettering. A woven patch can be produced in a much smaller size without losing its integrity â even down to an inch!
- Printed patches generally require industrial printing techniques to produce colorful, detailed designs ideal for high-detailed designs and texts. These patches are printed onto large sheets of twill that are later cut with a laser to achieve your desired shape and size.
- Chenille is a fabric made with silk thread used in combination with wool or cotton. Chenille patches make use of a vaulted yarn weave to create 3D designs perfect for collegiate design patches intended for jackets, bags, backpacks, clothing, uniforms, jeans, and many more!
- PVC patches are modern alternatives to the more common embroidered patches. PVC patches are made of durable, soft plastic that is available in a wide variety of colors that can easily bring your design to life.
- Leather patches are made from polyurethane faux leather â eco-friendly, durable, and soft. These are manufactured by embossing or stitching basic designs onto leather backings. Best for designs with limited colors, our leather patches are also ideal for clothing labels, sewing patchwork, bag, wallet, purse, and many more!
- Bullion patches use a combination of metallic beads, silk, velvet, and felt materials to create detailed and high-quality patches. These patches are significantly different from other types of patches, precisely because bullion patches are individually handmade by skilled artisans.
What are the different patch backing styles?
- Plain Backing - Plain backing patches can only be sewn onto fabrics. It will show the twill on the backside of the patch and is generally more flexible.
- Pellon Backing - Pellon fabric is added to the back of the patch to cover the threads and embroidery.
- Iron on Backing - Iron on backings are a special type of backing that when heated, will form a bond between the patch and the fabric. Note: They need the proper amount of time, pressure, and temperature to seal correctly.
- Tape Backing - Tape backing is the most ideal choice for short-term events. Itâs easy to use on any garment and is easily removable, but isnât as durable as compared to other types of backings.
- Single Velcro - Single velcro is more flexible than any other backing style. The backing is composed of a tiny hook that allows you to attach the patch to a soft backing for a secure grip.
- Double Velcro - Double velcro is a convenient way of quickly fastening your patch to another surface as these are often bought in pairs â hard hook and loop â to make a two-sided patch. If not needed, you can easily have it removed.
- Safety Pin Backing - Safety pin backing can transform a patch into something that can be pinned into the fabric.
- Key Chain - Anyone can almost easily carry a key chain which makes this a great token to hand out during trade shows, fundraising campaigns, and other events.
What is the difference between 50%, 75%, and 100% embroidery levels?
- The size and design of your patch determine the patchâs embroidery percentage.
- 50% embroidered patch is good for simple, text-only designs wherein at least half of the twill backing is visible.
- 75% embroidered patch allows larger, more intricate artwork, and covers more of the twill.
- 100% embroidered patch is ideal for intricate designs and logos wherein the twill is entirely invisible. This also offers the most detail possible on a patch.
What is the difference between merrowed, die-cut, and hot-cut borders?
- The Merrowed border can only apply to regular shapes (circles, ovals, and squares), and is sewed up and over the exterior edges of your patch.
- Die Cut border is cut to the shape of any complex, custom design.
- Hot Cut border allows sharp, detailed edges that are perfect for intricate designs.
