are perfect for anyone looking to capture even the smallest details in design with clarity and accuracy. While embroidered patches have a more traditional, layered look to them, woven patches have a flat surface and seamless appearance. Customers looking for a patch with small lettering and intricate details choose woven patches because of their tight weave pattern and smooth texture.
A smooth texture and increased detail make woven patches unique amongst our threaded patch options.

Capturing the Smallest Details in Woven Patch Design
Woven patches and embroidered patches are created by combining different threads to form artwork on a mesh surface, but woven patches use a much thinner thread. The result is a difference in texture and appearance that allows woven patches to capture artwork with a finer level of detail.
Our custom designs come in almost any shape imaginable and sizes up to seven inches tall. We also have hundreds of different colored threads to mix and match. Once you know how to make woven patches with our team, bringing an idea to life is quick and easy.
Knowing The Difference Between Woven and Embroidered Patches
The first step in creating a custom patch is finding the right style that suits your needs. If you know you want a threaded design, it comes down to choosing between an embroidered design and a woven design. Custom embroidered patches use thicker thread, resulting in a textured surface. When you run a thumb over the patch face, you feel the raised stitch lines of the design.
Custom woven badges and patches have a smooth surface and a more defined appearance thanks to a tighter weave and a thinner thread. Custom woven patches don’t have the same layered texture as embroidered patches, but they always have 100% thread coverage. This means that there is never any cloth backing showing through the design, making for seamless artwork with unmatched levels of clarity.
Looking at the Order Process for Custom Woven Patches
Creating a custom woven patch design with our team is a fun and interactive process. We want to make sure that every patch tells a different story, and the only way to make that happen is through the ideas and inspirations that come from our clients. All you need are a few ideas to get started. Just fill out a free quote form anywhere on our website, and let us know what kind of design you’re looking for.
Our team will have your first free proof of artwork ready within 24 hours. From there, you can make as many adjustments as you need until the design is perfect. During the revision process, it’s important to consider what attachment option you would like for the entire order of woven patches. An iron on woven patch is usually the quickest option when it comes to securing patches in place, but we also have hook and loop woven patches and standard PVC backed patches that can be sewn in place.
Something to keep in mind about iron on woven patches is that they require a slightly lower temperature to secure in place than other styles of iron on patches. The lower temperature prevents the woven thread from getting damaged as heat is applied. If you aren’t sure which attachment option will work best for your order, check out our instructions for attaching patches to any article of clothing.
