FAQ’s On Custom Embroidered Patches

As you are about to finalize your order for custom embroidered patches, there may be some questions that you want to settle first. Here are the answers to some of them.

How can one have great custom embroidered patches’ designs?

Embroidered-PatchesTo guarantee a beautiful outcome, the design should have the standard size of 3”. Smaller than this could lead to a patch that would look crowded, with fonts that are difficult to understand or read. Also, one should also avoid thin linesas they could appear as dotted lines. Script letters should be reserved for biggerpatches as they would not be readable in smaller ones. Full colored photos would not do well in embroidery, too as the details and colored aretoo high-detailed to be imitated. Embroidered patches with 7-9 colors actually look better and more defined than full-colored.

Would the custom embroidered patches look exactly as the printed sample?

Embroidery is not like a scanning machine where a 100% copy can be reproduced. There may be some slight difference from the print out sample. However, 100% customer satisfaction is guaranteed as a sewn sample is usually sent before the actual production order is done. Once approval is given for the sample, the rest of the order would look exactly as the sewn sample.

Would the colored embroidered patches cause staining on light colored clothes when washed?

Again, there is a 100% guarantee that “bleeding” or staining would not happen. Testing of the patches over several washes have resulted to negative staining of any kind. At the same time, even after many washes, no discoloration or faded-lookappearance happened to the patches. The embroidered patches are expected to last for decades. They are not easily torn, damaged or ripped. In addition to all these, no fraying of the edges has also been experienced with embroidered patches, even after years of usage.

How can one do the iron on embroidered patch?

Choose the right material for the patch. One rule of thumb is that the cloth or fabric must at least be the same weight as the patch. Iron-on patches are great for denims and cotton.

Here are the steps:

1. The cloth or fabric should be clean and dry.

2. Set the iron according to the fabric that you have. Iron the surface where you would place the embroidered patch. This is important because if it is wrinkled, the patch may not adhere properly.

3. Then place the patch exactly where you want it to be. Cover with a thin towel.

4. Place the heated iron on top of the towel where the patch is and let it stay for 10-15 seconds. Be careful that you do not burn the thin towel. Apply pressure by pressing the iron firmly.

5. Check the position of the patch by lifting up the thin towel. If the patch is in proper place, continue for 90 more seconds.Again, be careful that you do not burn the material.

6. Remove the thin towel and let it cool. Check if the patch has adhered properly. That’s about it!

How much would custom embroidered patches cost?

The price varies according to the following factors:

  • The quantity of the order (minimum is 10 pieces until thousands)
  • The size of the patch (smallest size is 2” while the biggest can be up to 7”)
  • The percentage of the embroidery (could be 50%,75% or 100%)
  • Other details such as material, add on, backing, shipment, number of colors and days of delivery.

To give an example, an order of 10 pieces of patches with a size of 2” and with 50% embroidery could range from $7-10 each. These same specifications would only cost you around $0.40-0.50 when you order 2000 pieces or more.
