Embroidery is the craft of decorating cloth or other materials with a needle to apply thread. Embroidery can include other materials such as beads, pearls, feathers, and sequins.
Today, embroidery is commonly seen on hats, caps, coats, overlays, blankets, t-shirts, jeans, dresses, socks, and golf shirts. Embroidery is available in a variety of yarn or thread colors.
Embroidery as an art form goes back thousands of years. Modern embroidery machines only became viable in the last 150 years and only really developed in the last 25 years with the advent of computer-controlled embroidery machines. You can buy printed embroidery patch t-shirts in online stores.
Machine embroidery patches are durable, inexpensive, and can be made quickly. Computer graphic designers can design custom patches and send them electronically to the factory to cut production time to get your patches delivered on time.
Embroidered patches are available with various pads suitable for specific purposes. Standard padding is a twill surface that can be sewn onto any garment. Plastic padding gives standard padding extra strength.
The ironed inner lining allows easy embroidery patches to be applied in seconds. Velcro is very popular with military units and is ideal when you need a patch that can be removed and reattached.
The back of the embroidered patch affects the style of the border. The standard type is a dug frame, sewn into the Paris plaster by hand. Laser cutting for hot cutting allows for an even appearance and is required for some types and shapes of fillings.
