See Frequently Asked Questions

Design

  • Q: What is the difference between a bullion patch, bullion crest, blazer badge, and blazer patch?

    A: There is no difference. All of these terms refer to emblems embroidered with special metallic wound threads, which originate from India. There is such diversified terminology for bullion emblems because this type of accessory remains a niche item, which remains unique and full of character distinguished from other more common products like thread-embroidered patches and woven labels.

  • Can you replicate specific fonts?

    No. Bullion patches/crests are hand-made, so whether lettering is formed with bullion wire or colored threads, there is no guarantee that fonts or lettering will come out exactly as shown on the digital mockup. It is recommended to avoid font-specific lettering or to have realistic expectations about the results of hand-stitched lettering.

  • What’s the smallest possible font size?

    Lettering using both bullion wires and colored thread are hand-embroidered, so the size of text needs to be larger than regular machine embroidery — about 5 mm tall for normal thread, 10mm tall for wire beads is the absolute minimum for optimal legibility.

  • Can you copy my logo exactly?

    No. Both the bullion wires and the colored threads are thicker than the threads used in machine embroidery, so you should anticipate the highly-valued imperfections that result from hand-crafted processes. Bullion embroidery is an age-old art, so it’s more important to work “with” the medium, which allows for unique differences that set the patch aside from “picture-perfect” mediums.

Mockups

  • Can I get a proof of my design?

    Yes. It’s part of The/Studio DNA to provide free professional design services for every bullion patch/crest order (with unlimited free edits). What we call a “mockup” is the digital proof, and it’s provided within 1 to 2 business days after payment of your invoice. Feel free to approve the mockup (if you are 100% satisfied), or request an edit (if there are any changes you would like to be made).

  • Will I get a physical sample before the entire order is run?

    We typically provide a free sewn-out sample photos for your approval through email before we move your order into full production. Bullion patches/crests are a special product because the actual sample typically differs from the digital mockup more so than other custom products. Before you decide upon your design requirements to receive your mockup, it’s recommended to discuss with your The/Studio representative the manufacturing limitations that result from the hand-crafted and age-old materials that are involved with this special type of emblem.

    We do not, however, ship physical samples for free. If you do require an in-hand tactile experience with your bullion patch/crest before you approve full production, we can ship a single physical sample to you for an surfee of $75.00 USD, and a time of 3-6 days will be added onto your total turnaround time.

Pricing

  • How do you price your bullion patches?

    We put a lot of thought into our prices. Some of the more important variables are quantity, stylistic add-ons, size and “surface area” of the modifications  — i.e.,  how much printing, sowing or other graphically-related work does the project require? The person most equipped to give you a price for your product is your sale representative or our useful DIY — both can give you a detailed analysis of your quote and what things featured into our per-item price. Happy hunting!

Product usage

  • How do I attach bullion patches to garments?

    Hand sewing is the best way to embellish your bullion patch/crest onto your garment. All bullion emblems that we create reserve 2 to 6 mm space of unembroidered black flocking material around the bullion wire design, which makes it convenient to sew on to blazers or any other garment.

Production

  • Are bullion wires really made from precious metals?

    No, not real gold or silver. Bullion wires are made from a special bronze metal material, tightly wound into a spiral shape. They appear to be a solid thread 0.5 to 1 mm in diameter, but actually the interiour of the spiralled cylinder is hollow. Different metallic hues are achieved by coating the spiraled bronze with a dyed metallic finish.

  • What other colors can I have for the back?

    Our base material suppliers do provide other flocking colors, but not with absolute consistency. Check with your The/Studio representative to see what possibilities we can bring to life for you.

  • Other than gold, silver, bronze and red, are there any other bullion colors?

    Some other relatively common bullion wire colors include blue, white, and yellow. Make your request clear to your The/Studio representative, and we will be happy to accommodate.

  • Do you have a minimum order quantity for bullion patches?

    No, we don’t. If you’re looking for a no-minimum patch producer, we’re one of the few folks who do that. Still, we recommend that if you’re going the through trouble to order one patch, you might as well have a dozen or more made — your sales representative would be happy to show how the per-price unit goes down tremendously after even ten items. That’s because we spread the cost of your unique custom patch’s set-up across however many that you order.

    That said, if you want something that’s truly one of a kind, you’ve come to the right place. We’ll be happy to make a limited edition run of just one.

We're the gold standard.
