Kinds and Types

KINDS OF PATCHES

Embroidered: Embroidered patches are the most commonly seen patches around, having seen them on uniforms, hats, jackets, and more. Customized designs are embroidered over twill or felt with viscose or polyester threads. At Total Custom Patches, we simplify the categories into two major parts, upto 99%; patches that have the background fabric visible. The coverage percentage refers to how much thread coverage the patch will have verses the amount of twill that will be visible.

Woven: Woven Patches are at times used in place of embroidered patches. When it is believed that the design is too complex to show up on great with embroidery, the best option is the woven patch. Woven patches are too made with polyester thread of a different type, instead of stitching the threads are woven into criss-cross lines to make an art. Woven patches are finer in detail in both the design and text of the patch. Since the patch is woven, it has a smooth appearance with no raised texture. Woven patches are also a great way to achieve photographic realism. Landscapes, Human faces, gradients, motorcycles, and blends can be reproduced on smaller sized woven patches in a way only possible on large embroidered patches.

Printed: Printed patches involve printing a photograph, design, or text onto a blank piece of twill fabric. Using a dye sublimation process, ink is used to fuse the design into the fabric; therefore, these patches have no color limitation—over one million colors are available. Printed patches are completely washable, dry cleanable, and fade-proof. Small print is easily readable on these patches, and they are often the best choice for those who desire photographic realism or those needing patches in an extremely short time window, as the printing process takes less time than the embroidery process.
