CUSTOM EMBROIDERED PATCHES

Custom embroidered patches are an excellent branding option for caps, bucket hats, beanies, and the left chest or sleeves of t-shirts, sweaters, and jackets. We can create custom embroidered patches in most shape or sizes that you require. Usually, we use a cotton drill backing for the main colour of the patch and then stitch in the detailing (up to 12 colours) that you need and then finish the patch with a merrow edge stitch.

CUSTOM WOVEN PATCHES

Custom woven patches are created using lots of tightly weaved thin threads that produce a high-detail finish. Woven patches are excellent at achieving small lettering (as small as 5mm high) or for illustrative designs. Woven patches can be created with an embroidered merrow edge stitch or without, and we can supply loose or sew the woven patches onto your desired hat or garment. We can also supply the patches with an iro- on backing.

CUSTOM PRINTED PATCHES

Dye-sublimated patches are the best patch option for super fine detailed artwork or small text. Dye-sublimated patches are digitally printed and then sublimated onto a polyester material. We coluor match your artwork files using CMYK or Pantone colours. We have a MOQ of 20 units for these, where as our other patches start at a 100 unit minimum.

CUSTOM PVC PATCHES

Custom PVC patches are large and in charge! They are a really durable branding decoration that can pop off your garments or provide a subtle 3 dimensional look. We can offer custom PVC patches loose with an iron on backing or we can sew them onto your cap or beanie. PVC patches can also be used as custom key rings when a small loop is added to the edge of the patch.

CUSTOM LEATHERETTE PATCHES

Custom leatherette patches are a high quality branding method to finish your garments with. We offer leatherette in a range of colours, finishes and branding options. The leatherette comes in black, brown or grey and we can emboss or laser engrave your branding onto the leatherette. Custom leatherette patches are popular on caps and beanies.

 

WHAT PATCH IS BEST FOR YOUR Job?

Embroidered Patches

Size options: From 50mm x 50mm up to 100mm x 100mm.
Shapes available: Standard and custom shapes
Minimum order: 100 units
Maximum thread colours: 12 thread colours
Production Time: 20 - 30 Working days
Edge options: Merrow edge or embroidered edge
Backing options: Plain, iron-on backing, or velcro
Base materials: Polyester/cotton twill or felt

Pros: Embroidered patches are our most popular style of patch. The base material and edge stitching gives them a firm rigidity. These can be supplied loose or applied directly to a garment by ironing them on or ssewing them to headwear and garments.

Cons: Embroidered patches are best for designs that don't have too much detail. Artwork that has gradients, fine lines or text that is smaller than 4mm would not be suitable for embroidered patches, our woven patches would be best for this.

Woven Patches

Size options: From 50mm x 50mm up to 100mm x 100mm.
Shapes available: Standard and custom shapes
Minimum order: 100 units
Maximum thread colours: 12 thread colours
Production Time: 20 - 30 Working days
Edge options: Merrow edge, embroidered edge, or no edge
Backing options: Plain, iron-on backing, or velcro

Pros: Woven patches are perfect for just about any artwork as the tightly woven threads allow for the finest of detail. These patches look great on headwear and garments. We can create these without an edge or with either a merrow or embroidered edge.

Cons: Woven patches are not as thick as embroidered patches, therefore they are not as rigid. This is because embroidered patches are embroidered onto a base material.

Dye-Sublimated Printed Patches

Size options: From 50mm x 50mm up to 100mm x 100mm.
Shapes available: Standard and custom shapes
Minimum order: 20 units onto garments or 50 units loose
Maximum print colours: Unlimited, this is a full colour print
Production Time: 15 - 25 Working days
Edge options: Embroidered edge or no edge
Backing options: Plain, iron-on backing, or velcro

Pros: Dye-sublimated patches are the best patch option for super fine detailed artwork or small text. Dye-sublimated patches are digitally printed and then sublimated onto a polyester material. We coluor match your artwork files using CMYK or Pantone colours. We have a MOQ of 20 units for these, where as our other patches start at a 100 unit minimum.

Cons: Because of the dye-sublimated process onto polyester fabric, the colours will fade faster than embridered or woven threads.

PVC Patches & keyrings

Size options: From 50mm x 50mm up to 100mm x 100mm.
Shapes available: Standard and custom shapes
Minimum order: 250 units
Maximum colours: 12 colours
Production Time: 20 - 30 Working days
Edge options: Merrow edge, embroidered edge, or no edge
Backing options: Plain or velcro

Pros: PVC patches and keyrings are a modern take on the traditional patch. The PVC plastic is custom molded to your artwork and matched with custom pantone colours. PVC patches are really durable and aturally waterproof so you can be assured your branding lasts.                                                          

Cons: PVC Patches requires moulds to be created, therefore the more colours your design is, the more moulds are required which makes it more expensive. We suggest keeping your design to 2 - 4 colours to keep the PVC patches affordable.

Leatherette Patches

Size options: From 50mm x 50mm up to 100mm x 100mm.
Shapes available: Standard and custom shapes
Minimum order: 20 units onto caps or 50 units loose
Colour options: Brown, Black, and Grey
Production Time: 10 - 20 Working days
Backing options: Plain or iron-on backing

Pros: Leather patches are most popular on caps and beanies but can be sewn onto garments if required. We can decorate the patch using a laser etch or hot emboss. The hot emboss is better suited to bold, chunky artwork, whereas the laser etch is perfect for detailed artwork or text.

Cons: Are there any? The leather comes in three different colours and the branding goes a darker shade of the leather; therefore we cannot print colours onto leather.
