We offer custom orders whether you need a specific design for your camp, event, club or for any reason. You can either email us a scan of your artwork or sketch or just type out a description of what you are looking for and we can provide the artwork.
The price is determined by mainly four factors: quantity, percentage of embroidery, size and backing.
Quantity: Our minimum order quantity is 25 and there is no limit to a maximum number.
Embroidery Coverage: The amount of embroidery is also a consideration whether the crest is covered in 100% threads or only 50%. This can be generally calculated on how much of the twill fabric background shows through when you look at the crest or the amount of fabric that is not covered by threads. We have illustrated a few options below where the white areas represent twill fabric and have no embroidery. We can also provide a couple of other fabric background choices such as velvet or a soft cloth background but twill is the most common.
There are also special threads such as metallic, neon or glow-in-the dark. All custom order prices include up to 9 thread colours.
Determining Size: To determine the size, add the width and height together and divide the total by two; for example, 4.5" wide x 1.5" high equals 6" and divided by two equals 3" for the overall size. Typically camp and District or Area or Troop crests are 3" in size.
Backings: Standard backing is plastic as it gives the crest stability. The backing is what's on the other size of the crest when you turn it over. Other backings are available at an extra cost and they include heat seal (iron on), super heat seal, velcro, adhesive or you can choose no backing at all where the threads show through and are not covered by any backing.
Borders: Merrow borders are a thick stitch that is applied to the edge after embroidery and cutting which provides a finished trim and bulkier edge. It also makes it easier for hand sewing.
Laser Cut borders are produced without merrowed over-lock borders and therefore are less bulkier. They are typically cut to shape by hand or by using a hot-knife or laser cutter. They lend themselves to an iron on backing because of their 'flat' profile and eaiser to press with an iron.
Quite similar to embroidered patches, woven labels are softer and 'floppier' than regular embroidered patches. The main difference is the type of folds available.
Folds There are a variety to choose from.
Borders and Backings You have the same options as embroidered patches.
