Can the patch be any shape?
Laser cutting allows the patch to be any shape. Laser cutting also prevents the edges from fraying. We can also make a cut in the middle of the patch.
Why is 100 pcs the minimum quantity?
This is due to production technology. We use large machines where small series waste more material and increase prices.
What alternatives are available for affixing the patch?
Most of the patches are sewn on to the product by the customer. However, patches are also available with an adhesive back (iron-on-labels), Velcro® strip, two-sided Velcro® strip (as used in some sports footwear) where the patch has the hooked side and the garment has the soft side; we can supply both if desired. Self-adhesive labels are only recommended for temporary use, e.g. for trade fairs and the like. A clip can also be affixed on the back of the patch so that it can be fixed on the edge of a pocket, for example. A safety pin is also a possible means of fixation.
What is merrowed edge?
A merrowed edge is thicker than an ordinary embroidered edge, and merrowing goes around the edge to the backside. Merrowed edge is suitable for the more usual patch shapes, such as round and rectangular, but it cannot be used for patches cut into irregular shapes.
Do you apply a programming charge?
We do not charge the customer for programming.
