Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)
It is important to think about your border style when putting together your embroidered patches order. Patches from ICON Emblem come in two basic styles: Merrowed and Laser Cut.
Merrowed borders are sewin with a special merrowing machine where the thread is sewn around the outside edge of the patch. Laser cut patches are cut to the shape of your design.
Both are great options. It depends on the look and style you're after.
Plastic and Heat Seal are the most popular backing choices.
- Plastic is perfect for patches that will be sewn to the garment. The thin PVC coating helps the patch hold up through washings and repeated wear.
- Heat seal is our heat activated glue backing. It is possible to iron small heat seal patches to garments. Heat seal is intended to be a quick fix solution. For best results and the longest lasting (permanent) hold, we recommend sewing patches to your garment.
- Velcro backing is ideal for military uniforms and other garments that where removable patches are ideal.
- Adhesive/sticker backing is a great temporary backing. Stick them with this backing for a quick fix like a photo shoot or at an awards cerremony. Sew your patch on later for a permanent hold.
