Company Patch Manufacturer

As a manufacturer of custom embroidered patches and badges, we start by digitizing your artwork free. The key to making a great design is in the digitizing—knowing which direction the threads will lay can make a notable difference in the final look. From there, we embroider your logo directly onto custom backing in a variety of vibrant colors.

Our artists produce computer-aided designs using the latest technology. Once your art has been digitized, it can be embroidered with a sew-on border or velcro back. Production time varies depending on the style you choose, but it usually takes between two and three weeks to create your order. Rush orders can often be accommodated for an additional charge.

Custom Patches With Embroidery

We make patches with embroidery by taking your artwork and digitizing it using a computer-controlled digitizer. From there, thread colors are loaded into the machine and, thousands of stitches later, your logo is transformed into a company patch. These are the biggest steps to consider when creating a custom patch or badge. We offer free artwork with every order.

Step 1: Explore The Order Options

Explore all of the different options available, and choose which type that works the best for you. We offer:

  • Sew-on patches
  • Woven patches & clothing labels
  • Velcro / Hook and Loop
  • Custom-embroidered iron-on
  • Merrow borders and hot-cut borders

Step 2: Sizing & The Best Shape

There is no right or wrong size and shape for a personalized patch—it’s unique for every customer and varies depending on needs and preferences. With nearly 30 years of experience, we can help you calculate the dimensions. The length and width will impact your pricing.

Step 5 : The Perfect Attachment Options

We offer several different attachment options to suit your needs.

  • Patches can be sewn directly onto clothes, making it a permanent and secure way to attach your custom designs.
  • Iron-on patches have a heat adhesive back to attach it to clothes or accessories. Once positioned, place a cloth over the image to protect it. Then, place a hot iron briefly (for 20 to 30 seconds or less) on the cloth to melt the adhesive onto the garment and fix it into place. This is one of the easiest methods for permanently attaching your custom patches to your products.
  • Adhesive Backed: Similar to the iron-on backs, adhesive helps you attach them easily. However, it only works with smooth, non-fabric surfaces.
  • Our velcro backing is made up of hook-and-loop fasteners. One part of the attachment is on the back, and the other is sewn onto the garment. This lets you quick and easy removal. This style is ideal for uniforms
  • Plastic Backs: Giving them added support so that they will maintain their shape through wear and tear.
    Button Loops: This style is a simple loop that allows it to hang from a button or lapel pin. They can be easily removed or moved to another garment quickly.

Step 3: We Figure Out The Percentage Of Coverage For You

After you’ve decided on the size, we will decide on the right percentage of thread coverage. Every logo patch we create is stitched directly on twill fabric, and our twill fabrics come in several styles. Different twill backgrounds are a perfect to display all of the elements of your logo and create amazing contrast. Most images fall between 75 and 100 percent coverage. The amount of coverage you choose will also have an impact on your final price. The price is also determined by how many stitches are included in your finished product.

Step 4: Find The Best Options

Choose the right order enhancements or embellishments. Here are some enhancements we offer that make a big impact on your product:

  • Metallic Threads: This is a great way to make your custom details stand out.
  • Glow-in-the-Dark: See the detailing of your design, even at night.
  • Three-Dimensional: Add a sculpted and puffy look.
  • Printed and Woven: A great option for adding textural elements and impressive detail.

Adding Color To Your Logo

We stitch your logo directly onto a twill fabric background. Our twill comes in many different colors, making it a great way to incorporate vivid colors into your image.

Stitches & Thread Coverage

We will determine what percentage of coverage your image will have. Most logos include 75 to 100 percent stitched coverage. When you think about your artwork, do you want to see the background color? If you can’t see any of the background colors, then your design will have 100 percent coverage. We offer up to 10 colors at no additional charge.

Merrow Border vs Laser Cut Borders

Choose between a merrow border or a laser-cut border. Merrow borders work well for simple rounded corners and non-complex shapes. If you have a more complex shape, your design will most likely have a laser cut border.

Choosing The Best Size & Shape

To determine the size, we use a simple formula. Take the length and the width, and add the two together. Then, divide that number by two. For example, with a 3" by 3", you would first add three plus three. Then, you would take the total, or six, and divide by two. Equaling a 3" size. The sizing of your image impacts the cost, so be sure to take that into consideration when creating your design.
