Have you noticed patches are back? Patches weren’t always the fashion choice they are now. What started as a functional way to mend clothing or identify those in military uniform, transformed with the hippie movement and became part of the fashion counter-culture. These patches became a way to bring a louder voice to people’s personal fashion. Today, custom-made patches can be an easy way to share your voice or brand. There are several patch types to choose from and almost endless possibilities of what to do with them! Charleston Cotton Exchange is here to help you find the right patch design for you!
This classic style is probably the first thing that comes to mind when you think of patches. Let us walk you through turning your logo or design into a high-end embroidered patch without threading a needle. These bold patches have a classic look with a slightly raised texture, perfect for simpler designs with classic colors.
Think of a woven patch as an updated, modern version of a traditional embroidered patch. A woven patch has a similar look to the embroidered but uses thinner threads allowing for a cleaner, crisp look. This style can capture greater detail within the design without being bulky or losing any quality.
Take your patch game to new heights…literally! This patch style allows for parts of your design to pop by using foam underneath the thread to help raise the design. Try using the 3-D effect with the lettering in your design for a premium look!
Another way to add high-quality flair to your design is with the classic look of the leather patch. These durable patches are great for outdoor gear and simple one-color logos or line drawings.
