What Is the Best Border For Custom Patches?

Deciding which border option you would like on your custom patch is a very important decision, this decision is vital to your custom emblem’s appearance. There are several border options we offer, each border gives a custom embroidered patch a distinct look. It is very important to know which border option looks best on which type of embroidered emblem, I want our customers to feel knowledgeable and confident about the border options they choose, so I am going to go over our border options and explain their differences in appearance and which border is best used for which type of custom insignia.  We offer 5 special border options, there is a border option for any custom patch!

  • Merrowed Border
    A merrowed border is a wonderful option for custom clothing patches that are shaped into a circle , rectangle, square or triangle. The merrowed border option will give your custom patch a finished, polished look. This border is  1/8″ that overlocks the patch edge, this option also prevents unwanted frayed edges. This option will give your patch durability.
  • Hot Knife
    This option is ideal for custom embroidered patches that have a intricate shape. We cut the emblem as close as possible to the edge. This option really makes your custom insignia come to life. We offer this border option for free!
  • Satin Stitch
    This is a great option for any custom embroidered emblem. This satin border is 1/6″ stitch going around the edge of the patch. This option is completely different than the merrowed border because it does not overlock the emblem’s edge. We offer this backing option free of charge.
  • Smooth Cut
    The smooth cut option can be used on any embroidered patch, this border has no stitching on the edge of the patch. This option is also free of charge!
  • Frayed Edges
    This border option can make any emblem stand out! We put the insignia through a process that turns a plain custom patch into a patch with frayed edges!

Now that you have been introduced to our 5 border options, you are ready to pick a border option that will compliment your custom patch! Remember that your border will make your patch come together and give your patch a finished look. Good luck on choosing your border!
