Gone were the days when small pieces of cloth were sewn on clothing to patch up holes borne out of regular wear and tear. Back then, to see a patch on clothing simply means that it is still intended for further use, thus, the reason for patching up the holes.
Today, patches are sewn, ironed, or taped (using Velcro) on clothing to showcase a certain fashion statement. Some interest groups even design their own custom made patches to give them identity – race car clubs, sports teams, even corporate patches on shirts. If back then, a patch on clothing was seen as demeaning, now, they are proudly worn to signify membership in a certain group or team.
Patches usually display logos, insignias, names of companies or organizations. Traditional patches usually have these logos embroidered on sturdy cloth. Some are as straightforward as having a company’s initials with its more known logo. Others, on the other hand, choose to have more intricate designs for more appeal.
What is the Work that Goes into Every Patch Design?
Because of new emerging technologies, patches can now be made en masse in as easy as just a few days. The design of the patches will, of course, dictate a certain minimum amount per piece based on the design to make. However, if the volume of the patches ordered is high, economies of scale will act to the advantage of the buyer as this will pull the prices down.
Companies manufacturing patches have made the ordering process fast and efficient for customers who want to have custom made patches. They even help customers in doing the design, guided by specifics provided by customers in the areas of design, size, type of patch and colors.
How does one really zero in on a design? Of course, if what you need are corporate patches (and these are usually used for marketing purposes), colors used should be specific that just seeing them from afar, the target market can already distinguish the brand just by the colors itself. Aside from the colors, corporate patches usually would have the name on them or the company’s logo.
Other customers would just have a general idea of what it wants, would dictate some colors they want then ask the patch manufacturer to help design the patch. The good thing is that designing is free of charge.
Preparing the digital proof of the patch based on what the customer has requested comes next. With us, you have an assurance that the artist will follow all your requested details – from the size, to the colors, text, graphics, and even up to the edge requirements.
From that, the customer reviews and either approves or requests further changes until a final proof is approved, which becomes the basis for the patch design to manufacture.
