When it comes to selecting the ideal type of custom patch for you, there are various factors to consider, like pricing, material, turnaround time, durability, texture, and so on.
We get asked a lot of the same questions about patches as embroidery digitizing industry professionals. It's no surprise that the procedure might be intimidating for first-time patch buyers as well as patch experts. You're surrounded by dozens, if not hundreds, of choices. In terms of durability, application, or overall aesthetic, the cheapest option isn't always the greatest for your product. In addition to this blog article, we've put together a handy guide that outlines the most important aspects of each type of custom patch we make. This will give you a better idea of all of the custom patches Migdigitizing has to offer. Our professionals are always available to assist and make the ordering procedure as simple and straightforward as possible for our consumers!
There are seven different types of patches, with the differences stemming from the material used or the method used to create them, both of which have an impact on the final aesthetic and financial outcome.
Don't meddle with the tried and true! Because the majority of patches individuals meet are embroidered patches, custom embroidered patches have an instantly recognisable look and feel. With a distinct texture, long-lasting structure, and a timeless appearance. With hundreds of thread colours to match your logo or picture, embroidered patches are the ideal combination of price, durability, and design flexibility. Some designs visibly "jump" off the patch with actual depth thanks to their unique texture. They're also simple to make, which means they'll fit into your schedule. With embroidered artwork, the possibilities for producing meaningful and memorable patches are unlimited.
Looking for waterproof and weather-resistant patches with 3D artwork? PVC patches are ideal for instances where the wearer will be spending a lot of time outside or on the water, or simply for those looking for a non-threaded patch. PVC patches are tough, rubberized emblems that will withstand grit, water, mud, paintballs, and everything else you can throw at them. The one-of-a-kind material allows for unique “sculpting” for a three-dimensional impression and a terrific tactile sensation.
PVC patches are custom designed to withstand any type of environment. They may be easily attached to everything from jackets and vests to hats and backpacks, just like a classic embroidered patch. They're also waterproof and can tolerate freezing temperatures, making them ideal for anything from a day at the beach to slicing up steep mountain slopes.
Creative PVC patches are sturdy, easy to wash, and provide the best options for layered design and custom 3D artwork, even if you don't anticipate your patches getting into trouble outside.
Woven patches provide many of the same advantages as embroidered patches, but they can "pack in" more elements like small letters in the same amount of space due to the tighter weave. Woven patches stand out among our threaded patch options due to their smooth texture and greater detail.
Weave patches use a thinner thread and a tighter weave pattern to capture even the smallest details of a design. Woven patches are the ideal option if you want a stitched patch but need more detail than embroidered patches can provide. Woven patches and embroidered patches both employ a mesh surface to create artwork, but woven patches use a much thinner thread. As a result, woven patches have a different feel and appearance, allowing them to capture artwork with more precision.
Fashion brands, outdoor brands, backpack and bag labels, and giveaways are all good choices.
Leather is one of our most flexible patches, as it can be made to seem both rugged and elegant. For consumers searching for an economical or vegan alternative, we offer both luxuriously thick hides and imitation leather, as well as options like rivets, branded logos, and more. Custom leather patches, like the G-1 and A-2 aviation jackets worn by Air Force and Naval Aviators during WWII, were well-known. Leather patches can now be found on a wide range of headgear, backpacks, jeans, and jackets. While the designs change, they retain the iconic appearance of the handcrafted leather patches worn by America's old school fighter pilots.
Chenille patches are vintage, but they're also back in style. These fuzzy threads don't show detail effectively; instead, big, colourful pieces with basic text or design stand out. It's a big accomplishment to earn your first letterman jacket. It represents all of your hard work and effort in winning your spot on the squad. As a result, the chenille patches used to make these jackets are equally essential.
Embroidery patches are thread patches named after the technique used to make them, but chenille patches are more like PVC patches in that they are named by the substance used to make them. Chenille is a silk fabric blended with a natural fibre such as cotton or wool. Polyvinyl chloride is a flexible, rubber-like substance, whereas PVC is a flexible, rubber-like material. When compared to thread, this results in a yarn with a highly distinct texture.
