Once you have inspected the design proof, we allow you to submit as many change requests (revisions) as needed until the design proof is ready for final production of your order.

What Makes Patches a Great Promotional Giveaway?
Patches are an ideal promotional gift for a myriad of reasons. In the industry or promotional items, it is a well-known fact that a wearable (any item that is intended to be worn, adorned or otherwise placed on garments, or hat patches) are the most effective type of promotional product, hands down. The popularity and appeal of wearable items is huge and growing every day.
They offer a unique approach to the world of customize apparel because they are portable, transferable and much more customizable than most promotional clothing. For example: You can buy a custom t-shirt with your logo embroidered on it, but the t-shirt is still what is considered to be a “stock item”; meaning that it is essentially the same as all of the other shirts, perhaps in a different color. Patches on the other hand are 100% customizable and are created in a one-off fashion where the patch does not even exist until your design is created. This unique level of customization makes them highly sought after and an extremely flexible and powerful promotional product for any type of organization or business.
Sports Jerseys and Team Uniforms
Patches in soccer, or European football are extremely popular and designate a teams’ origins and league affiliations. Hockey jerseys are also commonly decorated with custom embroidered patches. Sports teams commonly use shirts and clothing for merchandising purposes, and often times the revenues generate by these uses outweighs the revenues generated by games and all other sporting events.
Martial Arts Custom Patches

The Creation Process
The process behind creating patches begins with a design. An embroidered patch design is created using computer software by our professional patch designers. This usually consists of vector graphics software, image and photo-editing software and production software.
The design process is very detailed, and can take anywhere from 30 minutes to several hours or days depending on the complexity of your design. Each order we produce is made from a design we create from scratch just for you.
Once the design is completed and has been approved, it is sent to our production department for review and digitizing. We review the design to determine if any last minute changes are needed in order to meet the strict manufacturing standard, then it is off to the digitizing department.
In the digitizing phase, your design is converted into a machine-ready file that translates exact stitching patterns to our embroidery machines. This gives each embroidery machine a pattern to follow for each individual thread color, to ensure optimal stitching tightness and quality. The digitizing process is where the quality is determined. A low quality digitized image will lead to a lose thread pattern, making your patches look fuzzy and unfinished. We optimize your digitized file to provide maximum thread density for a high quality end product.
Once the digitizing step is complete, we load the digitized file onto the embroidery machine array, and begin stitching your custom patches design into fabric. A mesh fabric material is used as a base to stitch onto. Each color is stitched individually.
When the embroidery process is complete, which can take several days for most orders, your order then moves into the finishing and backing phase of the manufacturing process. Here, your patches will receive either a merrow (threader) or heat-cut border (hot-knife seared) depending on your specifications. Once the border is finished, the backing of your choice is applied…these include custom iron-on patches, self-adhesive, PVC, velcro and plain. We then individually pack each patch into a plastic bag, and they are then bulk packed in groups of 50 or 100 per larger bag until your entire order quantity is packaged. After final wrapping and packaging your order is shipped to you to enjoy.
To begin your order of custom patches, your patch design is created using specialized software which makes it compatible with commercial embroidery machines, and increases stitching accuracy. Once your design is downloaded into the embroidery software, the embroidery machines are calibrated and prepared for the run.
Once the machines have been properly configured and set up with your design, they operate in tandem (often 20 to 30 embroidery machines at a time stitching the same patch design) to start sewing your patch. At the beginning of the process, each embroidery machine has been threaded with the appropriate thread colors that are used in your design. This is done specifically for your design, and changed out for each individual embroidery run.
Once stitching has begun, your design begins to take shape as each thread color is stitched into the backing, or supporting material often called a mesh or a twill. This twill mesh provides a solid foundation upon which your patch design is sewn, and is akin to denim or light fabric for added rigidity. The embroidery machines continue stitching out your patch design until each individual patch is complete, and then moves on to the next patch until the total quantity of your order is complete.
Once finished with the stitching process, a large sheet of twill material is cut and removed from the embroidery platform for finishing. Each large sheet will contain several, and all combined equal the total quantity in your order. Next, the large sheets will move on to the finishing area, where the individual patches are cut out of the larger sheet by hand using precision cutting tools to make sure they are cut into the precise shape of your design.
After being cut out, they will move into the edge finishing area, in which they will receive one of two types of edges, or borders. The first and most common type of edge will be a merrow, also called a hand-stitched edge. They will be run through an edging machine which will apply a merrow border to the outside edge of your patch design. The alternative type of edge is the heat-cut edge, which is created using a hot wand, similar to a soldering iron to singe the edges of the thread materials together so they do not fray.
After border edging is completed, the final backing will be applied. The available backings are plastic, plain, Velcro, and iron-on. Once the backing is applied, your patches are then packaged in plastic bags, boxed and prepared for shipping.

Neon Threads: Add $0.10 per color per patch

Button Loop (Popular with Girl Scouts & Boy Scouts): $0.10 per patch

Custom Patches As Promotional Product

Yours can be designed specifically for your garment with exact dimensions and shapes to be made to work inside of any scenario.
We have manufactured for thousands of clothing brands over the years, and our attention to detail yields a professional look every time.

Using Patches On Uniforms
They can be used for company logos, messages, identification and more. Industries like security companies that employ security guards use patches to place their security badge on their uniform shirts and jackets. Janitorial services use them to show their employee’s name and often times the company logo on a sleeve or collar. Schools can also benefit from the use of embroidered emblems on their uniforms, making them truly customized and often times a way to increase revenues collected from selling uniform shirts or at fundraising events held by the school. Patches are also widely used in the corporate uniform industry such as in law enforcement (like the FBI, CIA, Department of Homeland Security and other divisions of the US Government). Businesses ranging from body shops to hotels & hotel chains, fast food and restaurants, lawn maintenance and landscaping companies, mall security officers, airline and aeronautical corporate uniforms and many more use them to separate their uniforms from other companies and offer a level of recognition and security to their personnel inside their organizations.
Creative Marketing Uses
The Business Card
While patches are used in many capacities, from adorning garments and bags to representing the roots of motorcycle clubs on vests, to rewarding Boy and Girl Scouts for achievements and many other uses they can also be used to add an extra special touch to your personal or corporate marketing. Picture this: everyone is passing their business cards around at the next company convention and you see some interesting cards. Some have raised lettering, others are made of plastic and look like credit cards, and then one guy shows up with a metal engraved card that blows everything else you’ve ever seen out of the water! Now that those fancy metal cards are becoming commonplace, the more basic things are becoming the rare. Imagine if you created a small embroidered patch with a self-adhesive sticker backing that you are able to stick directly onto your standard paper stock business cards, and poof! You’ve got an amazing looking business card that no one will soon forget. Furthermore, the sticker can be removed and placed onto other objects like computer monitors, mirrors, cubicle walls, etc. Allowing your prospective customer to see your logo day in, and day out!
The Thank You Letter
In the same light as the business card idea we just covered above, we have found a unique way to send thank-you letters to customers by utilizing custom embroidered patches. Simply produce small custom patches with your logo or message with a peel and stick backing, and use it to either include with your letter so that the customer can use it as desired (place it on their computer tower, or on their dry erase board, free space on their keyboard, etc) or stick the patch directly onto the letter in place of a printer logo! Your customers will undoubtedly be impressed and your message will stick in their minds for a long time to come.
The Convention Envelope
Often times at conventions, the presenting firm will leave a postcard or letter envelope at the place setting for each attendee. Sometimes the envelopes are sealed with gold foil stamped stickers, or ribbons, but what if you used an embroidered patch to seal your next convention envelope? Each attendee could then remove the patch and go on to place it on any surface of their desire in their workspace at home or at the office, their vehicles, or many other surfaces!
The Award Box
During employee recognition ceremonies, many times a company will present brooches or plaques to employees which are placed in paperboard boxes that are usually not sealed or simply have a printed company logo on the top if anything at all. A custom patch would add an extra level of marketing power to your next award ceremony by just sticking it onto the top of the box, or including inside the box for the employee to place on their choice of surfaces!
Achieve Finer Detail With Woven Products
When you need to achieve maximum detail on your patch, woven patches are the way to go.
