From a production standpoint, the two items are exactly the same, including materials, manufacturing processes, factory capacities, etc. Simply put, leather patches tend to be larger than leather labels. Patches are thus most popular for groups and organizations looking to proudly display their design or crest, often embellished onto a visible area of group garments or apparel. Labels are more commonly used for subtle commercial branding efforts, mainly within the fashion industry but also in everyday consumer goods.
After you approve your artwork mockup, we will manufacture an actual sample for you within 5-8 business days. Upon completion of your sample leather patch/label, we will email a digital photo of your sample to your inbox. At this point you are welcome to approve the sample (if you are 100% satisfied), or request an edit (if there are any changes you would like to be made).
Sorry, we don’t match competitor prices, but for a good reason. Many companies often compromise their quality standards in order to get the cheapest price, and offer an very inferior product. The/Studio holds high quality standards for the leather materials and production methods that we offer our customers. That’s probably why almost half of our customers come back to purchase from us again.
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? Additionally, leather patches have a variety of leather types to pick from and all with their particular strengths. 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!
We call it “fake leather” to make sure our 100% cowhide “real leather” option is not confused with the other “fake” material options. Technically, it’s called bicast leather, PU leather, or polyurethane-treated leather. The material is composed of (real) split leather coated in a layer of polyurethane. Then it is formed into a sheet and embossed with a pattern on the surface, which resembles the grain of real leather. So, our “fake leather” does have cowhide leather components within it, but it is manufactured in composite with synthetic polyurethane to match the performance of high-grade leather at a lower cost.
Yes, although it’s certainly not the most economical choice. In fact, the total price of one piece and ten pieces is only marginally different.
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.
Sure, but only under special conditions. Treating your special leather request as a “sourcing order”, we will do all we can to find the texture, thickness, and color just right for you. It’s best to ship us an actual sample to work from, but high-definition photos are a big help, too. There are a few catches, though. Since your request falls outside of our regular product offer, there’s no guarantee that we will be able to fulfill your request, but we never invoice or request any cash deposit from you until we can guarantee production according to your request. Then, due to the extra time it takes to source a non-standard leather material, your order may take longer to produce than if you choose a listed leather.
