All You Need To Know About Custom Embroidered Patches

Custom embroidered patches are a great way to make your clothes and accessories look unique, distinguishable, and stylish. You can put them on your jeans, jackets, shirts, or bags. The basic design of custom embroidered patches is pretty simple. They consist of patch material, embroidery thread stitched onto that material to create an image or text, and adhesive backing to attach the patch to the item.

These patches are ideal for corporate events, school uniforms, non-profit organizations, sports teams, military units, and other events and groups. If you want to promote and advertise your group or event more effectively, custom embroidered patches are a perfect solution for you. They will easily set your group apart from others.

  • Great design

Your patch can feature as many colors as you want and still look great! Just make sure you don’t overdo it with the colors and end up making your patch look too busy. The general rule is that simple designs stand out more than complex ones. And while we also print white on custom patches, it’s not recommended as a background color unless you want to go old school.

  • Embroidery Percentage

The embroidery percentage is the amount of a custom embroidered patch covered by a thread. High-embroidery-percentage patches are more detailed but cost more than low-embroidery-percentage patches.

  • Stitching Options

There are seven types of stitches used when embroidering custom embroidered patches. These include running, satin, chain, fill, stem, french knot, and stop. Running stitches are the cheapest option because they use fewer threads and take less time to create, while satin stitches use more thread and time to cover large areas of an embroidery design.

  • Patch Size

Custom embroidered patches come in a variety of sizes and shapes. The bigger custom embroidered patches will cost more since it takes longer to stitch them. If you want custom shapes for your patch, like circles or stars, this will also increase their cost.

  • Cost

The cost of custom embroidered patches depends on how much of the patch is covered in embroidery. The more stitching you have, the higher the cost will be. A simple patch with just your logo and little text will cost a lot less than one that covers most of the patch with custom designs and details.

  • Twill fabric

Twill fabric is a type of textile that often has a pattern of diagonal parallel ridges or parallel diagonal ribs. It’s commonly used for creating custom embroidered patches because it’s durable and long-lasting.

  • Backing

There are different types of backing available for these patches. Hot cut patches have an edge that has been melted by heat. Merrowed edge patches have a border that has been sewn onto the patch. Laser-cut patches are made using a laser rather than scissors. They have a very smooth edge and look professional on business wear or uniforms.

Key Takeaway

Custom embroidered patches are the most popular and cost-effective way to achieve all of your labeling needs. The embroidery process is extremely durable and will outlast the life of the product. Embroidery also provides a more polished, sophisticated look compared to other processes.

Embroidered patches are completely customizable in terms of shape, size, colors, and special features. Custom embroidered patches can be made from a variety of different fabrics.
