The branding patch is available in two forms: Woven and embroidered. Custom Patches can be square, circular, or cut into any sort of shape requested. Patches are permanent fixtures to fabric—these are usually affixed on the outside the garment and never supposed to have been cut off or removed easily like clothing labels can. Oftentimes, these are conspicuous and contain emblems, logos, and written information.
Woven patches have higher meaning of the graphic and lettering edges than embroidered. These are usually 30-50% cheaper to manufacturer and also have a quicker turnaround time. Oftentimes they can be flatter and simpler to sew or iron on. A woven patch that may be cut in a shape aside from a square is reported to be either “laser cut” or “die cut”. Because many patches are bigger than standard woven clothing labels, a lot more logo or lettering detail may be captured and produced. A bigger area mean greater graphic detail capabilities.
Embroidered patches possess a higher three-dimensional “lift” to the fabric. This lift is caused by densely stitched or “embroidered” thick threads. Embroidered stitching gives a classy look, pvcppatch will not be the best choice for capturing fine detail, containing costs, or with dealing with tight production schedules.
Embroidered patches usually start in a dollar or maybe more per piece.
