Custom embroidered badges are cloth patches or emblems with designs or logos sewn on them using specialised machinery. Custom embroidered badges are made up of stitches, sometimes the stitches cover the whole of the badge.
However sometimes the embroidery stitches do not cover the whole of the badge.

For instance the custom embroidered badge could be made by having a white cloth patch and the embroidered stitches going onto the cloth patch. The custom design may only cover 75% of the white cloth patch. So in this instance some people call the badge a patch or cloth patch.

In truth embroidered badges and embroidered patches are the same badges being available in a wide range of forms, sizes, and colours, and may be customised to display any design, logo, or message.

Organisations, enterprises, and clubs frequently use embroidered badges or patches to reflect their brand or identity. They can be fastened to clothing, hats, purses, and other goods in a variety of ways, including stitching, ironing, and velcro.

They are a long-lasting and sturdy solution to display a message or emblem, and they can be customised to match any demand.

How can I digitise my embroidery badge design?

To get your Custom embroidered badges produced you need to digitise your artwork. Digitising your badge design for embroidery entails translating your design into a digital file that an embroidery machine can read.

The following are the typical stages for digitising your badge design:

Make your design: Begin by generating your badge design with a vector-image-creation software programme, such as Adobe Illustrator or CorelDRAW. It is critical to remember that the design should be simple, with clear lines and few details, as complicated designs may not translate effectively when stitched.

Select your embroidery software: To digitise your design, you will need to utilise an embroidery software programme. There are numerous software programmes available, including Wilcom, Pulse, and Hatch.

Import your design into the embroidery software: Once you’ve decided on the software, import your badge design into it. On your computer screen, the design will show as a digital image.

Digitise your design: Using the embroidery programme, manually produce a “stitch file” that contains the embroidery machine instructions. This entails allocating different stitch types, stitch lengths, and other features to different parts of the design. This approach is time-consuming and necessitates a thorough understanding of embroidery techniques.

Test your digitised design: Once your design has been digitised, stitch a sample to see how it looks. To attain the desired effects, you may need to make changes to the design or the stitch file.

Digitising your badge design for embroidery can be a time-consuming procedure that necessitates the use of specialised software and technical skills. If you are unfamiliar with the technique, it is advisable to engage with a professional embroidery firm to make a high-quality, personalised badge.

How much does it cost to make custom embroidered patches?

The cost of customised embroidered patches varies depending on a number of criteria, including the size of the badge, the complexity of the design, the quantity ordered, and the materials utilised.

Here are some of the cost-influencing factors:

Size: The size of the badge is a crucial cost consideration because larger badges require more materials and time to make than smaller ones.

Design complexity: If the badge’s design is intricate and requires a lot of detail, the cost will rise because it will take more time and materials to make.

Quantity: In general, the more badges ordered, the lower the cost per badge. This is due to production economies of scale, which means that the cost per unit reduces as the quantity increases.
