Further Information

Are Uniform Badges & Patches Right for me?
This mainly depends on your design and intended application. If you want the nice look of embroidery and you are willing to compromise on artwork modifications if required, then uniform badges are most likely for you. If you have very detailed and complex artwork that cannot be easily modified without taking away major elements or the look of your design then printed patches may be your only option.

Limitation of Uniform Badges & Patches
In relation to your artwork or design embroidered patches do have limitations. Just like printing, embroidery has a limit to its resolution, (the number of stitches that can be laid down in 1 inch and how small we can make a stitch). We are also restrained when it comes to dealing with gradients, and they must be dealt with in a different way to a printed gradient.

Patch Resolution
When making a patch we are limited around 75tpi (threads per/inch). However different thread patterns will be used in different situations to make the patch look as close as possible to the original artwork provided. So the main thing to remember is that when you get your patches made up, don't expect a high resolution finish like a printed patch and don't expect everything to have high resolution edges because they won't. Due to the needles moving around when they are moving up and down and punching through the backing they will never strike the exact same position, so every patch will have slight differences. No two patches will be exactly the same. We are also limited to how narrow we can make a line. this is limited to about 0.75mm. Any narrower than this and we need to use a straight stitch.

Patch Gradients
When it comes to gradient (one colour blending into another) depending on where the gradient is being used, we tend to either choose to replace it with a solid colour or use 2 - 3 thread colours to try to replicate the gradient. How noticeable a change in thread colour will be will depend on how wide apart the colours are from each other. As an example shading from black to white will be very noticeable but transitioning from yellow to a slightly darker yellow will turn out much better.

Patch Materials
When manufacturing a high quality product, the type of materials you use will play a large part in not only the overall look and feel of the patch but also the longevity, washability and its ability to stand up to the wide variety of applications that they can be used in. Zen Promotional only use the best quality threads, twills, felts & iron-on heats seals. Our polyester threads are made strong and will hold their colour for the life of your uniform. Polyester thread is our preferred thread of use as it will stand up to tougher treatment than Rayon. Our patches are designed to stand up to commercial washing and have excellent UV resistance. Our iron-on heat seal is an imported product from the USA which has excellent adhesion compared to other cheaper heat seals. Other backings include Velcro and peel and stick self-adhesive backings.

Patch Applications
Embroidered uniform patches can be used for many applications. Their main use is for branding of clothing, such as emergency services, commercial and military uniforms, hats, work wear, sportswear and branded clothing lines. However they can also be used for branding luggage, bags or other items where a high quality logo or brand is required.
