Embroidery Coverage

In today’s blog we are going to review embroidery coverage. This is a very important step in designing your custom patch. You will need to choose how much of your custom patch you would like to be embroidered. There are three options; 50% embroidery coverage, 75% embroidery coverage and 100% embroidery coverage.

Let’s go over all three options in detail!

  • 50 % Embroidery Coverage: 50% or less of the patch surface area will be covered in embroidery. This is our least expensive option and is generally used for patches with simple designs sewn onto fabric. If you need an affordable option and your design is simple, then this is an excellent choice!

  • 75% Embroidery Coverage – This means 75% or less of the patch surface area will be covered in embroidery. This is the most widely used embroidery coverage. Unless specified by the customer, our Creative Specialists usually note a standard order with 75% Embroidery.

  • 100% Embroidery Coverage– This option will cover 100% of the patch surface area. This is our most expensive option. 100% embroidery coverage is sure to create a visual masterpiece.

Please keep in mind that choosing the right embroidery option depends on your image.  If you are unsure of which embroidery coverage to choose, please ask your creative specialist.
