Embroidered Patches: In the Making
It all starts with your request. A patch mockup is created based upon the request, and with client approval, production begins.
A skilled artist uses the latest digitizing software to ready the design for embroidery. This part is crucial as the perfection of the patch heavily depends on the digitizing quality.
A sample patch is created before full production. It is scanned and emailed to you for approval at no cost. A physical copy can be delivered but for an additional fee.
Production begins. Large sheets of twill are placed within Tajima Embroidery Machines where multiples of the patch will be created at the same time.
Depending on the client’s choice a backing may be added (iron-on, plastic/pvc, velcro, sticky back). A heat seal and press machine applies the backings to the embroidered patch sheets.
The patches are checked for loose threads and other imperfections. Only the best patches are kept and moved through the last of production.
Merrowed Edges: applied with a merrowing sewing machine.
Hot-Cut Edges: flat edges sewn on and cut to shape by a laser cutting machine.
With everything finished, the patches are carefully packaged and shipped to you. PatchSuperstore provides free shipping within the US and anywhere else you need it to go!
