Neon thread is perfect for anyone that wants to make their patch design shine a little brighter than all the rest. The pink and yellow neon thread colors are especially good at making an impact.


The metallic gold and silver threads we offer achieve a vibrant effect similar to neon colors. Under the light, the gold and silver metallic colors will shimmer as if there are actual metal shavings embedded in the design.

We’ve seen all kinds of amazing and colorful patches, and we’re always on the lookout for the next great design. If you need a little inspiration, check out some of our favorite patches in our gallery. Otherwise, give us a call to get started on your own patch design!
