Price includes up to nine standard embroidery colors.

On the rare occasion that your job requires more than nine colors, each additional color is 6 cents per color.

For metallic threads, add 15% to the base price per patch.

Dye Sublimation Prices

We provide a method known as dye sublimation because we are aware that some patches require a great deal of detail. Thread is used to embroider and weave patches; some elaborate designs cannot be produced as cleanly as we’d like. By using specific dyes that bind to the fabric molecules in our dye sublimation process, we can produce printed patches with fine details that are almost photographic in clarity. Pricing for custom patches is given on a case-by-case basis and will be finished upon request.

Frequently Asked Questions

Are patches durable and long-lasting?

The durability of patches depends on their quality, attachment method, and how they are cared for. Sewn patches generally offer the highest durability, while adhesive-backed patches may require periodic reinforcement or reattachment.

Can I customize my own patch design?

Customizing your own patch design is an exciting opportunity to add a personal touch to your clothing, accessories, or organizational emblems. With various tools and methods at your disposal, the possibilities for creating a unique and meaningful patch design are endless.
Whether you prefer to unleash your creativity using graphic design software like Photoshop or Illustrator, explore online platforms with customizable templates, or seek the expertise of embroidery digitizing services, the process offers a chance to bring your vision to life. By customizing your own patch design, you can showcase your individuality, promote a brand or cause, commemorate special events, or simply express your artistic flair. The journey of creating a personalized patch design allows you to craft something truly one-of-a-kind, and the end result can be proudly displayed and cherished.

Can you add patches to hats?

Yes, it is possible to add patches to hats. Adding patches is a common way to personalize or customize hats, giving them a unique and individualized look. Patches can be sewn or attached using various methods, depending on the type of hat and the patch itself.

What is the best type of patch for a hat?

The best type of patch for a hat depends on personal preference and style, with options including embroidered patches that are stitched onto a fabric base, iron-on patches with heat-activated adhesive, adhesive-backed patches that can be easily stuck onto the hat, and Velcro patches featuring hook and loop fasteners for easy attachment and removal, allowing for versatility with multiple patches or insignias.

However, the choice should consider the hat material, desired permanence of attachment, and personal taste, ensuring the patch size is suitable for the hat and the chosen attachment method aligns with the hat material’s compatibility, providing a seamless and visually appealing customization option to add personality and uniqueness to your hat.

What’s the difference between embroidered, woven, and dye sublimated patches?

By sewing several colored threads onto a backing fabric (sometimes referred to as twill), embroidered patches are made. The highest level of dimension is possible with embroidered patches. The process of making woven patches involves weaving together several colored flexible threads on a loom. By dyeing the patch cloth, dye sublimated patches are produced. To create a highly detailed image, we use dyes that form bonds with the fabric’s molecules. This is excellent for printed patches or photos.

Are patches machine washable?

It depends on the type of patch and its attachment method. Sewn patches generally withstand machine washing, while iron-on or adhesive patches may require more delicate washing or removal before washing.
