No design yet?
If you don’t have an image of your design, you can also send us an image of a similar design to what you require, it may help us to see what you’re looking for. We will accept designs in most formats, including JPEG, PNG, TIFF, GIF, PDF, PSD, AI, EPS ETC (although we prefer a simple jpeg or png), you can even send a rough drawing by post if its easier for you. We also accept embroidery files in any format. Please do not send files larger than 2mb in total, we only need a quick look at the design for the purpose of the quote. If you have more than one image, then put them all together in a zip file, then attach it to the quote using the facility provided on the quote page.
Have you been turned down by other suppliers because your design is too complicated? We do see plenty of tricky designs, but also keep in mind that designs are often rejected because some manufacturers want every job to be an easy one. We will always try to make your design work, and if it’s not possible, we’ll work with you to create a simplified version of it. If that’s not an option for you, then we may offer to make you a DTG Printed version of it. There is always a solution!
There are no hidden extras, we do not charge an additional setup fee, the price you are quoted is the total price you pay including delivery. There is currently no vat to pay, and repeat orders will generally get a discount.
Your design will fall into one of 2 categories:
1) A text based design (letters and numbers only).
2) An image based design.
Text based designs (a text only example is shown above):
Text based designs are normally easier to produce, so they’re often the cheapest option.
Image based designs (an example is shown directly above):
Image based designs can be tricky to produce, as not every image is suitable for embroidery, as fine detail is often very difficult, so please bear this in mind when sending us images of complicated designs. Always send us the best quality image you can get.
Small quantity orders are always welcome:
There is no minimum order quantity for some larger designs, but we recommend you order at least 5 to 10 patches for image based designs, as we outsource all artwork to a professional digitizing company to improve the quality of your finished design, the cost of that service is included in any quote we provide for your design.
The price per patch will always reduce as quantity increases and we also offer discounts on repeat orders of the same design.
Custom patch orders can take from 1 to 3 weeks to complete, depending on the size of your order and our current workload, you will be given a delivery estimate at the time your order is placed. The current delivery estimate for most small orders is 10 to 14 days.
We now outsource all design images to a specialist digitizing service, who create the embroidery file we use in our machines. This new approach to production guarantees a better quality product, we hope you understand that the minimum quantity for image based designs is necessary to cover the additional costs involved, our rates are still the same as before, we cover the extra digitizing cost.
We get so many new inquiries every day, that it’s now impossible to send an advanced preview with every quote, it just takes up too much of our time. But it is still an essential part of the process. So, to sort the ‘Wheat from the Chaff’, we’ve recently introduced an ‘Advanced Preview Service’ specifically for those new customers who wish to see how their design will look, before placing the order. Prices start from £15 for a small design, and it’s refundable off the main order. Just reply to the quote email and request an advanced preview. If you’ve ordered from us before, you probably won’t need to use this option.
If you require physical samples of your design, then we recommend placing a sample order of 5 qty. You really need to check if the whole batch is consistently good, and you’ll never know that from just one patch. Any company can make 5 patches and send you the best one, you should be looking for 5 or 10 consistently good patches, which helps to make poor quality output, quite difficult to hide.
We only use high quality materials for our custom patches, to give a quality look & feel to both the stitched, and the unstitiched areas of your design. You can view our available threads and fabrics range for custom designs >Here<
Sew On Patches/Iron on Patches:
Iron on backing is an additional process which is applied after the initial embroidery, so it normally costs a little extra, but we now offer this as a free option. We only use industry standard transparent hot melt glue, your patches will be made the proper way to a factory standard, with a smooth & flat iron on backing. You can also specify your patches to be ‘sew on only’.
We also offer a Velcro® backed option in a variety of colours, and we can supply you with both the hook & loop! (see the image below for a better explanation of Velcro® parts).
Whilst it’s possible to create patch designs that glow in the dark, the threads themselves are very expensive, and cost can often be double our normal rates. An example of a Luminous Patch is shown below. The image on the left is the daylight view, the image on the right shows the night time glow effect.
