There are some things you should know if you wish to create wholesale custom patches. This is a simple skill to master, and you will be an expert in patch design in no matter how much time it takes.
Begin with the embroidery percentage. Although it may seem confusing, this is actually quite easy. This percentage indicates how much embroidery thread is used to cover the twill backing on your custom-made patch.
There are three main percentages: 50, 75, and 100%. The appropriate percentage for your patch will depend on the design.
A simple design such as a name patch or uniform patch, will only require 50% embroidery. The design will be created by covering half of the twill surface with thread and leaving the other half exposed twill.
A 75% embroidered patches is a more complex design, similar to some corporate logos. You guessed it, only one quarter of the backing fabric is visible in this leaves.
The final touch is an embroidered 100% patch that covers the entire surface. It features the embroidered design. This is common with intricate patch designs.
Good patch providers will offer a variety of twill colors because the backing material is visible on 50% to 75% embroidery. This allows the twill to be used in conjunction with the embroidered design.
The size of your patch is the next thing to consider. The two main factors that affect the cost of wholesale custom patches are size and embroidery percentage.
Measure the length and width of the patch to determine the size. Add these two numbers together and divide by 2. This is your patch size.
If your patch measures 2′ wide by 3′ high, you can multiply them together to get 5. Divide that number by 2. Order 2.5 inch patches
You don’t have to stick with the standard rectangular, square, or round shapes. The patch manufacturers of today can make custom-shaped patches in almost any shape that you can think of. No problem if you need one to look like a tow truck.
