Size Limitations

The smaller your design is, the more detail you will have to sacrifice. Keep in mind that small or complex details would only look clear on a large scale. They will not look as good as a digitalized image especially if they are small. In case your design have something that would not look good on an embroidered patch, we will simply let you know beforehand. It is also important to choose the right things or parts of your design that should be eliminated. We can help you with this so that the integrity of your design will not change. The best thing you can do in order to be certain that your iron on patches will look as clear and clean as possible is to consider the size you are planning to go for before creating the designs.


There are various types of borders to choose from. The most common borders that most of our clients opt for are die-cut and mirrored. If you already saw custom patches with edges that are entirely wrapped, then you have seen patches with a mirrored border. This is usually used on patches with simple shapes. If you want your patches to have an irregular or uncommon shape, then we recommend the die-cut border. It is the one that can work best for shapes that have sharp angles and lots of cuts. It is crucial to choose the right border that best fits the design you are going for.


There are different add-ons you can apply on your patches. You can also choose to have special threads that can certainly enhance the looks of your custom patches.

Embroidery Options

Patches that are not entirely covered with stitches are usually cheaper. If you choose not to have any unstitched area in your custom patches, then they will be thicker and fuller. 100 percent embroidery coverage can enhance the look of your patches. The most common choices are 50, 75 and 100 percent embroidery. You can also choose different effects for the details of your patches. One of the best options that our clients love is the 3D effect. This raises the letters and/or details they have on their patches which can create a more unique and noticeable design. The garment and area on where you want to attach your patches should be considered when deciding on the embroidery options.


We base our prices on the embroidery coverage and options, design, add-ons and size of the custom patches. If you are looking to have cheaper patches, it is best to have a simpler design that requires less thread.
