We are no strangers to clothing patches. At one point we have these patches to represent or identify something. It could represent a group, an organization, a belief or simply to make a statement.
The demand for embroidered custom patches has grown overtime. Many consumers have sought the service of enterprises that will help them with the manufacturing of these customized patches. And one company that built an industry out of custom patches is patches4less.
Patches4less is a company from Florida, USA. They specialize in producing embroidered customized patches for customers in the US on a reasonable price. They take pride on their experienced design team to deliver great results that will equal or exceed customer expectations.
Interested clients may reach them through their website, www.patches4less.com to get free quotations for their custom patches. They already made it easy for clients to upload their design, choose the size, and decide on the colors of the twill and the threads and the quantity needed. From there, they will give clients their quoted price and it will be up to the clients if they will proceed with the transaction or not.
Basically, transactions with patches4less are done in 3 simple steps:
First, we send them a copy/image of the design for our customized patches. Second, once they received our design their artist will send us a digital proof of the design which we’ll approve or ask for revisions before ordering. Lastly, once we have the digital proof approved, they will then proceed with the production of our custom patches.
The company can provide orders for a minimum of 10 patches per order up to a maximum amount of 2000 pieces. Production and delivery of the orders will take place within 10 days. And one thing that is nice about them is that they deliver for free anywhere in the US. They use FEDEX USA AIR as the shipping company of choice.
Speaking of customization, patches4less has a handful of options for their clients to choose:
This means, as a customer we have the liberty to decide on important details regarding our patches. These options includes, embroidery, sizing of patches, the patch backing that will be used, borders, and the type and colors of twill and threads to be used.
The customer can choose on the type of embroidery for their custom patches. It goes in 3 types: 50% or less embroidery on the patch, 75% or less embroidery on the patch and 100% of the patch is embroidered and no twill backing is left exposed.
The sizing of the patches can go from as little as 2 inches up to maximum patch size of 7 inches. Another option we can choose is with regards to the patch backing. They have five types of patch backing options and each type has its own advantages and specific use.
The following patch backing options are as follows:
1. Tape Backing
This is the less permanent type of patch backing. It is easily removable and great for costumes and nifty fashion piece.
2. Iron On Backing
It’s the most popular type of backing because it’s very easy and handy to attach on any fabric. All you need is an iron to attach the patch in place.
3. Velcro Backing
Velcro allows you to easily attach and remove the patch from the garments. Unlike the tape backing, this allows us of multiple uses for our patches.
4. Button Loop Backing
This one is design to hang on a label pin or button. No need for sewing or gluing of the patches.
5. Plastic Backing
This is a plastic support added to the patch. This gives the patch extra durability even after constant use. Plastic backing can also be combined with the iron-on backing for easy garment attachment.
Another option is the Patch Borders. Customer can choose between Hot Cut Edge and Merrow Borders. Hot Cut Edges are patches that have sharp and very detailed edges while Merrow borders are the standard classic borders that are often used.
Patches4Less will also ask customers with regards to the type and colors of threads to be used. All orders include a maximum of seven thread colors for free. However, if a customized patch entails more details in color the customer can add additional threads for an added cost.
There is also an issue with the color accuracy for some clients and in order to resolve those they have included a Patch Color Guide on their website. This will help clients and their design team to choose on the correct color hues for the end product.
As of the present time, the company has already made its name in this industry. In fact, they have already made millions of patches from different types of groups including the military, the police, fireman and even some companies listed from Fortune 500. With that kind of clientele, we are assured that the company is trustworthy and known to deliver. And with their efficient customer service we are confident that we will be served and accommodated competently.
