An embroidered patch, also known as a cloth badge, is a piece of embroidery which is created by using a fabric backing and thread. The art of making embroidered patches is an old tradition and was originally done by hand.
Woven Patches use thinner threads than embroidered patches. Woven patches are made of thread only, and stitched with continuous design to achieve finer detail in the design and text of the patch.
Sublimated patches are created through a process called dye sublimation. In one sense, this means that no thread needs to be stitched or woven into place to create the artwork for the design. In another sense, it means that even higher levels of detail can be added to the patches.
Chenille is made by placing short lengths of yarn between two core yarns and then twisting the yarn together. Then, the wrapped yarns form loops, which are then cut into the fuzzy pile typical of chenille.
A Hot Cut border is a simple, thinner, flatter border that is removed using a hot knife that seals the peripheral edge of your patch, shielding the thread from fraying.
A Merrow border is a heavier border which is sewed up and over the exterior edges of your patch.
A Stitched border is a heavier border which is sewed up and over the exterior edges of your patch.
