What to look for in a patch company?

The first thing you might want to consider is cost. There are many different wholesale websites online that provide high quality embroidered patches and excellent customer service. Advanced equipment such as computer embroidery machines are used to construct the patches. With the advanced technology, companies are able to produce more details about patches.

Some companies have a minimum order and may have an additional cost for extra colors, iron on the back or the velcro strap.

Materials are also another thing to look for. You will definitely want a company that uses high quality materials that are fade resistant and colors that go well together. Having machine washable materials is also an important consideration.

Experience with the employees of the company is another thing to consider. The company must have highly trained people who have experience in graphic design to help with the design of custom embroidered patches or iron on patches.

With custom patches, send an image of your existing patch, logo, sketch, or drawing to the company so they can create the patch. Different companies will have different requirements, but most will ask you to submit your file as a psd, eps, tiff, jpg, Adobe Photoshop, or Adobe Illustrator file. Art on CD-Rom can also be accepted.
