Embroidered, Woven, Printed & PVC Custom Patches

Badges made from fabric into Patches are a time honoured symbol of belonging, achievement, celebration and fashion accessory. For many, Patches will conjure up fond memories of working hard as a Rainbow, Cub, Brownie, Guide or Scout to achieve a badge or gaining swimming awards, gymnastic awards, or School or Club Colours. Patches for uniform, sports kit, and labels for branding or decorating clothing with a unique design, are all areas where you can translate your artwork to make it perfect for your uniform, service, brand or as an accessory for retail. With four custom patch processes from which to choose, we can produce a Patches in all shapes and sizes and offer a selection of solutions for attaching to garments and accessories. Embroidered, Woven, Printed and PVC Patches partnered with backings for either sewing on, ironing-on or removal/replacement via Velcro© or creating sewing channels for custom PVC Patches. This along with a traditional over-locked or a laser cut edging (if the shape is irregular) enables us to be your Patch Pals! Please choose from one of the four patch option types below to make your order.

“We just received the pins and patches at our office and all I can say is…….wow! They have all turned out really, really well and look amazing. The other guys in the office are impressed, especially with the patches. They have tried patches in the past, but they never turned out as expected, however yours have smashed it!“

Embroidered and Woven patches, often referred to as cloth badges, emanate from the hand made craft of embroidering designs onto cloth by hand.

​Whether this is your favourite band, slogan, character or design embroidered and woven patches are brilliant for jazzing up and decorating clothing, bags, blankets or for display on uniforms …scouts and guides, schools, the Emergency Services and the Military.

​Whatever the use they are brilliant purveyors of individuality, fashion, award, rank or role.

​Available in any size with edging that can be overlocked (also known as merrowed) or heat (laser) cut where outlines require a finely shaped edge and backings:

  • ​sew-on
  • iron-on
  • Velcro

and a wide range of threads and colours allowing us to create a high quality, high impact product.

Embroidered badges and patches are made by stitching the threads of the design onto a twill, felt or chenille background. Embroidery therefore sits slightly proud of the backing material.​

Woven badges and patches are used where a design is fine in detail and too fine to embroider successfully. The design is made by weaving the coloured thread into the material. The stitching in woven badges is therefore integrated to the background and flat. The weaving process is also used to construct labels for clothing and we can supply these types of labels too.​

Where the artwork is too fine to be woven, badges and patches can be created using one of several printing processes which brings about an exact representation of the design.

We are happy to advise you of the options available for custom Embroidered or Woven Patches and badges according to your requirements. ​
