Embroidered Patches



OUR MINIMUM FOR CUSTOM PATCHES IS 25 PIECES


Embroidered patches are a great way to create a piece of art you can wear! We can digitize your design, add your name in a font chosen from our font book, or add your company's logo. Patches are the perfect way to add a little YOU into fabric. 

 

 

Created by MAKE customers Future Ecologies.

 

Embroidery is priced mainly by thread count and size of the design. We offer pre-cut "Merrowed Edge" patches but we also have the ability to create custom sizes and shapes with twill cut edge patches or felt cut edge patches. Discover more below or click here for more info on embroidery. 

Our in-store design books are full of pre-digitized artwork. We have flowers, animals, sports icons, hearts and tons more graphics!

If you have a specific design, please e-mail it to embroidery@makevancouver.com so we can get you a quote for digitizing based on the stitch count. Please include what material you’d like and what size you’d like the patch to be in inches.


Custom Merrowed Edge Patches

Merrowing, sometimes known as overlock sewing or overlocking is the process of wrapping thread around fabric, yielding an efficient and uniform stitch. Making these types of patches is a 4-step process using 4 different machines: 

  1. The embroidery file needs to be set up (on our computer using embroidery software). 
  2. Then the design or lettering is embroidered onto the twill fabric (using an embroidery machine). 
  3. The "patches" are then cut out of the twill fabric (die cut or hand cut). 
  4. Then the edges are merrowed (using a merrowing machine). 

Minimum Order: 50 patches
Minimum Set-up Fee: $50 
(depends on stitches in embroidery) 
Minimum Time Frame: 3 weeks 

Only simple shapes can be merrowed. 
Glue backing is available but we recommend sewing the patch on as well for better longevity. 
We do not sew or glue patches on in-house but, for some items, we can arrange for an added cost and additonal days.

    Custom Cut-edge Patches 

    At MAKE we offer cut edge patches out of Twill or Felt.  

    Making these types of patches is a 3-step process. 
    1. The embroidery file needs to be set up (on our computer using embroidery software). This is called digitizing  and there is a one-time fee to do this.
    2. Then the design or lettering is embroidered onto either Twill or Felt fabric (using an embroidery machine). 
    3. The "patches" are then cut out of the fabric (they are hand cut so perfection is not possible). 

    Minimum Order: 25

    Cost
    Felt or Twill Cut-edge patches with embroidery are quoted based on the graphic used. Pricing is based on the stitch count of the graphic and the dimensions of the patch. If the graphic is custom, it will have to be digitized which has a fee starting at $40.00. You can read about digitizing on our webpage here

    If the design is from our in-store selection of pre-digitized fonts and graphics, the patches could be completed within 2 weeks. This can change based on how many patches are needed and the stitch count. Overall this method is faster than the alternative (merrowed patches) and you can order less

    Minimum Time Frame: 10 days (depends on qty and design)

    This type of edge may be the only one available for complicated shapes. More colours are available for volume orders on request.

    We do not sew or glue patches on in-house but we can arrange for an added cost and it may take up to 7+ additional days.
