Embroidered patches have been a staple of uniforms, organizations, clubs, teams, and more for quite some time. However, you might be surprised to find out how these detailed, creative, and custom embroidered patches are made. Let's take a look at the process and get more familiar with exactly how modern embroidered patches are made.
It all begins with the art. Your artwork is digitized to produce a file that the embroidery machine can interpret. The file indicates where to place each stitch in your custom patch. This also includes your choice of thread colors and the stitching layers that make up each design. Our team of graphic artists will assist you along the way, offering their expertise in design to ensure you get the perfect patch.
Once the artwork has been digitized, it's time for the embroidery process. Modern, computer-controlled embroidery machines then seamlessly create your custom design. The base materials, including twill, act as a stitch stabilizer, keeping your patch looking great for years to come.
Once the patch's interior stitching is complete, the stitch borders are then completed, if selected. Upon completion, the machine aligns another piece of twill, and the process begins again. The twill is then removed, and the backing is applied.
Upon cooling, the twill is then finished off with an initial inspection for any defects. We then examine the patches one final time, in search of loose threads that can be repaired, and any defective emblems are removed.
Your patches are then ready to be shipped out and applied to your garments. The process sounds complicated, but modern technology has certainly helped create quality embroidered patches consistently.
