Classic Custom Embroidered Patches Vs. Digital Printed Patches

Custom Embroidered Patches are considered classic. They were originated in the 1800s. As early as 1812, the military are already employing the use of embroidered patches to denote their rank and unit. During those times, the patches can only be made by hand. With the use of a thread and a fabric backing, sewers carefully stitch every line of the design to complete the piece.

When the Schiffli embroidery machine was invented, the process became quick and efficient. It has become easy to create a batch of patches with uniform images or designs. The development of patches, however, did not end there. Computerized machines had also been invented to enable digital printing in customized patches. Trust these machines to provide you fine, clear, and of great quality design of your choice.
