The following equation is used to determine patch size:
Types of Patches
Embroidered Patches
Embroidered patches are the most popular type of patch. They are custom-made to your design needs and can be produced in any shape or size.
Woven Patches
Woven patches can be much more detailed than regular embroidery. Even the most intricate designs can be produced and small lettering can be read clearly. Woven patches are thinner and more flexible than embroidered emblems.
Digital Print / Sublimated Patches
Sublimated patches preserve the exact details of the design elements and are photorealistic with 16.7 million colors. Sublimated patches are resistant to fading with even the harshest washing conditions, and they are the best option if you need your patches in the shortest delivery timeframe possible.
Appliqué Patches
Appliqué patches are 100% embroidered and they look like direct embroidery because they are laser-cut to the shape of the design. An appliqué patch can also have a cut-out within the inside of the patch. Applique patches are made with low-melt backings, so they can be applied to a garment with low heat, or sewn on.
Flag Patches
We keep the following flags in stock, which means that we can ship them to you within 5-7 days: U.S. flag with gold or white border, all state flags, and some country flags. Flags that are not in stock can be produced as an embroidered patch, woven patch, or sublimated patch.
Nomex / Flame Resistant Patches
Flame resistant patches are made with flame resistant threads and fabrics. Your patches are made with 100% Dupont Nomex fabric, with a special fire resistant backing. Nomex is a patented flame resistant fiber used to make patches primarily for protective clothing worn by firefighters, race car drivers and aircraft personnel.
Reflective Patches
Reflective patches are made with 3M reflective fabric and are primarily for police, safety, and security personnel.
Blank Patches
Blank patches come in basic shapes and sizes. You have the option to chose your fabric color and merrow border color.
Epaulettes are primarily applied on the shoulder of a uniform. Epaulettes are often used to demonstrate rank by military or other organizations.
Plastic backing: The most popular and is used for patches that will be sewn on a garment.
Low-melt backing: Gives you the option to iron-on your patch or sew your patch to your garment. Low-melt backing is $.05 - $.19 per patch.
Velcro backing: $.15 - $.19 additional charge per patch.
Pressure sensitive adhesive backing: $.15 additional charge per patch up to 8”.
Border Styles
Merrow border: The most popular with simple shaped patches. Merrow border is 1/8 inch thick.
Stitched border: Thinner than merrow border. Measures 1/16 inch thick, and is typically used for patches that have more intricate cuts including appliqué patches.
Our minimum order quantity depends on the type of patch you choose. Embroidered patches, sublimated patches /digital print patches, appliqué patches, and flags: - 12 piece minimum. Flame retardant patches / Nomex patches, reflective patches, and blank patches: 25 piece minimum. Woven patches and epaulette patches: 50 piece minimum.
Percentage of Embroidery Coverage
Patches that are not 100% embroidered use twill fabric as the background color. Please refer to the fabric color chart to see what colors we have available. Percentage of embroidery does not apply to woven patches & digital print / sublimated patches.
Fabric and Thread Color Charts
The threads on an embroidered patch make up the individual stitching found in the details.
