Patches, made by hand or machine embroidery.
Today, this technology is the balance between the spectacular appearance and relatively low cost.
Embroidered image is obtained in relief.
The color scale of the threads used allows you to put on the patch any color and shade. And the use of metallized threads allows you to give the picture a look the same as when using a much more expensive braid.
When use by the method of computer embroidery, a program is created for the embroidery machine, which will be used to apply the pattern.
The creation of such a program is much cheaper than creating a stencil (for printed patches) or a matrix (for plastezol patches). Therefore, the manufacture of a small number of patches will be the most inexpensive.
The durability of the embroidered patches, when using quality embroidery materials, is comparable to printed patches.
One of the problems with the durability of the embroidered patch, when used, is the unraveling of the threads that are used to make the pattern.
This is eliminated by applying to the back of the patch a special adhesive composition that reliably fixes the threads from blooming.
