Embroidery coverage defines the amount of embroidery across the entire surface of a patch. We base our embroidery percentages upon 2 basic amounts: Up to 75%, and 76%-100%.
We measure our patches based on the following calculation: (Length + Width) / 2. Simply add togther the length and width of your desired patch and divide that number by two. The result is your patch size.
There are several factors that will influence the cost of your patch order: Quantity, percentage of embroidery, size and backing
The minimum order quantity is 100 patches per design. Quantity is the main contributing factor to the cost of your order. There are certain set costs with the manufacturing process, therefore, the more patches you order the less each patch will cost.
Percentage of embroidery is determined by the amount of surface area on the custom embroidered patch that is covered by thread. The following diagrams can help explain embroidery percentages:

Size is also an important element of the patch order. The larger the patch, the more material and workmanship your order will require. There are no average patch sizes since every patch we create is custom made to order. Many times we let the artwork or design idea dictate the size that will work best for your custom embroidered patch.
The following equation is used to determine patch size:
We offer 2 border styles; Merrow and Hot-Cut. The Merrow border is most popular with simple shaped patches. a Hot-Cut border is recommended for all iron-on patches. See below for examples of Merrow and Hot-Cut borders.
The backing you choose for custom embroidered patch order can also contribute to the cost. The pricing we list includes PVC backing. However, the backing you choose should be determined by how the patches will be used.
The PVC backing is our standard backing. All custom embroidered patch orders default to PVC backing when a specific backing is not requested. The PVC backing is a thin coat of plastic added to the back of the patch that seals the threads and helps the patch maintain it’s like NEW look for many years. PVC backing is the backing of choice when the patches are going to be sewn onto the garment or item.
Threads & Meshes
The threads on an embroidered patch make up the individual stitching found in the details.
Meshes are solid areas of material that are generally used as a background color in a patch.
