Patches are a great way to create a piece of art you can wear! Whether it'd be your own design, your name in a font chosen from our font book, or if it's your company's logo; patches are the perfect way to add a little YOU into fabric.
Embroidery is priced mainly by thread count and size of the design. We offer pre-cut Merrowed Edge patches or we 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.
We have flowers, animals and tons more graphics available in-store in our design books which are pre-digitized. If you have a specific design, please e-mail it to email@example.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
Embroidered Merrowed borders
EMBROIDERY STARTS AT $15
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:
- The embroidery file needs to be set up (on our computer using embroidery software).
- Then the design or lettering is embroidered onto the twill fabric (using an embroidery machine).
- The "patches" are then cut out of the twill fabric (die cut or hand cut).
- Then the edges are merrowed (using a merrowing machine).
Minimum Order: 25 patches
Minimum Set-up Fee: $50 (depends on stitches in embroidery)
Minimum Time Frame: 2 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 we can arrange for an added cost and 7+ 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: 1
Felt or Twill Cut-edge patches with embroidery start at $17.50 per patch. Pricing increases 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 patch could be complete same-day if the order is placed before 4:30pm. This can change based on how many patches are needed and the stitch count. Overall this method is much faster than the alternative (merrowed patches).
Minimum Time Frame: 24 hours to 7 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.
Glue backing is available for Twill orders over 25+ but we recommend also sewing the patch on as well for longevity. Felt has an iron-on backing but we still suggest sewing the patches on as well if the item will be washed a lot. 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.
