What there is to know when having Custom Emblems and Patches Made
Emblems are very popular today more than they were in the past, today people will wear them or carry them with items that have them. Emblems and patches can either be embroidered or woven. Custom patches have some very unique shapes that make them unique. The Patches are put on the fabric permanently which means they are not going to fall off or be detached. Unlike clothing labels patches are fixed on the outside and are not to be cut off. Most of the times the times they are conspicuous and contain emblems and maybe some written information.
Compared to the embroidered patchwork, the woven type will be of a better quality with higher definition lettering and edges which is something that the customer will look at. They are also surprising cheaper to manufacture with almost half the cost difference making them very ideal if you have a project at hand to consider. If the patch you are doing is in another shape apart from the square shape it is referred to as a die cut or a laser cut. Patches are bigger in size compared to the clothing labels logo, the larger size allows them to accommodate emblems, logos and a combination of writings too. The unique thing about the embroidered patches is that they have a higher three dimensional lift to the fabric . This is possible thanks to the dense stich work and the thick threads that are used. The embroidered stitching works will have some classy results but if you want to add fine details to the patch you will not have that much success. Think about the budget and the graphic specifics of what you want done.
It is wise to meet with the manufacturer and go through some ideas of what you want as through the exchange of ideas you might get to learn something valuable that could potentially change your decision. Consider the time gap that you want the product finished once you place an order with the manufacturer , custom pieces could have a lot of work involved and hence the need to ensure that everything falls within the time gap that is suitable for you. The earlier you place the order the better so that you don’t have to run when it’s too late. Manufacturers have peak seasons too and during this time they will have a lot of people waiting to have their orders made, consider going during off peak. Check to see of the manufacturer is using the quality of thread that you want.
