Cute embroidered patches make great Valentine’s Day gifts and are the perfect way to capitalize on the most romantic day of the year. Let’s learn more!
You might think Valentine’s Day is a long way off, but it’s never too early to get a head start on V-Day gifts! In our latest blog, we discussed how Valentine’s Day is a $23.9 billion industry. So whether you are a brick & mortar business or an online store, there is a lot of money to be made on Valentine’s Day
Just like planning romantic gifts for your significant other, it’s very important to plan ahead when preparing your merchandise for Valentine’s Day. This is especially true with all of the shipping delays and supply chain issues post-COVID. So let’s learn a little more about custom embroidered Valentine’s Day patches and how to make them.
Why Make Custom Embroidered Patches?
Embroidered patches are a great merchandise option to add to your Valentine’s Day lineup. Made with fabric backing and textured threading, this is our best-selling patch style! These thick patches exude quality and durability, supporting designs with over 9 colors. Embroidered patches are affordable to make, so you can enjoy a high markup. You can make 200 custom embroidered patches from only $0.61 each!
They are also cheap to ship because they are lightweight and compact, and also easy to store for the same reasons! You can create a ton of cute Valentine’s Day-themed designs that look great on patches. Even if you don’t want to sell patches standalone, you can even order patches and attach them to merch you already have in stock, like backpacks, jean jackets, leather jackets, hats, and beanies. These merch items will automatically become custom products, so you can charge a higher price for them!
