Thread Count and Embroidery Coverage
When you’re just getting started on a custom embroidered patch design, two of the first things to consider are going to be thread count and embroidery coverage. Thread count is the number of different colored threads used in a design. We offer up to seven different colors for free on any embroidered patch design, but you can include as many different colors as you need to make sure the artwork is perfect.
Embroidery coverage refers to how much of the patch is actually embroidered and how much is left untouched by the needle. All of our custom embroidered patches are priced in one of two brackets: 75% embroidered or less, and 76% embroidered to 100% embroidered. A higher thread coverage will give you a more elaborate design with more detail. For patches with less than 100% thread coverage, a certain amount of the mesh backing will be showing through, but this can actually help accentuate your custom artwork.
All patches made with threaded designs start as a blank piece of mesh before the needle embroiders the artwork. We offer a wide range of mesh colors, so be sure to let our team know what color mesh will best suit your design.
Knowing the Difference Between Woven and Embroidered Patches
The difference between woven and embroidered patches is something you can see and feel. Woven patches use a thinner thread with a tighter weave, resulting in a smoother patch design. Embroidered patches have a thicker thread that creates a layered design with more depth in the artwork.
Custom patches embroidered with detailed artwork have a traditional look and feel, perfect for anyone wanting a design with classic appeal. We only use the best quality threads available when crafting embroidered and woven patch designs, so no matter which style you prefer, you can be sure the artwork will not fade or fray over time.
