Patches are great. They represent your organization. You can use these on events, or on the uniforms of your employees. Thus, create a design that best describes your company. Choosing the right design and type requires a series of steps, even though the event is a small one or the purpose is for sewing on the employee’s uniform. Below, we compile the step-by-step process so you could create your patch.
A patch symbolizes your company, club, group or whatever types your organization is. Thus, it should tell what your organization does at first glance. For example, when you see a red maple leaf patch in a shirt, what is the first thing that comes to your mind? Right, Canada. How about a spade in a patch? Perhaps, you would think of a casino.
Indeed, patches create authority. You can use them to increase awareness to people. With the appropriate colors and design, you could come up with a great patch. But first, decide on the purpose because it would be easier to think of a design when you establish the purpose. Are these for a big event? Are these for one time or daily use? These simple questions are not only helpful in the designing process but also in choosing the types, shapes, letterings and other essential things.
You can do this design brainstorming alone or with a team or with our design team. If your boss designated the responsibility of choosing the design and supplier, we can help you. We can work together to create a design that suits your organization. Describe to us your specifications. We present to you our own interpretations based on your requirements. If you like our presentation, we give quotations for you to evaluate and rely to your boss.
Asking for quotations
In case you already created a design, we can give you price quotations. Asking for quotations is now easier with our online form. Use this form to generate a price quotation in a few clicks.
What are the things you need to use our form?
First, measure the length and width of the patch and enter it to our form. The computation is simple. Add the width and length and divide this sum by 2. For an instance, your patch measures 5″ by 7″. The sum is 12. Dividing the number by 2, the result is 6. Thus, the size of the patch is 6″.
Second, select the type of embroidery. We have 100%, 75%, and 50%. Each type costs differently. Since we use more thread in 100% embroidery, this type is more expensive.
Third, decide on the backing. We offer plastic, no backing, Velcro, iron-on and tape backing.
Fourth, provide us the need by date so that we could assess if we could deliver your patches on time. We uphold excellent quality delivery services and finishing your order is our top priority.
Fifth, indicate the quantity. The quantity determines the number of days that you wait for your order. If the order is 10, it may take minutes to finish it. However, the delivery may take longer especially if you are miles away from our location. Additionally, the quantity also determines the price per patch. The more you order the lesser is the price.
Sixth, tell us if it is a reproduction or not. Knowing if you are a repeat customer is important because it would be easier for us to look in our database.
Lastly, provide us further details on your design. You may attach an image or describe to us those details.
Once we receive your design, our team makes a digital image and sends it to your preferred mailing address. For faster review, we recommend email addresses. Upon receiving the digital images, we suggest that you review it as soon as possible so that we could make changes if the image does not pass your standards. We revise accordingly.
Once you approve the image, we require a proof of approval before production begins. This proof is documentation on our part. After approval, you furnish an order contract. In here, please specify any pantone color number so we could use it as reference to select the thread. Pantone chart numbers enable us to match the exact colors of your design. This chart is available in your library, or in a retail store. We also have it in our site.
There you have it, our easy step-by-step process. If you have questions, do not hesitate to send us inquiry and we will answer them immediately. Alternatively, you get a free quotation to assess how much is the total cost for a certain number of patches.
You can follow these steps to identify the best patches for your company.
