At American Patch, we create patches using three different techniques: weaving, embroidery, and dye. Woven and embroidered patches both use thread to give you a more traditional looking patch than dyed patches. However, the two have their differences. Here, we explain a woven patch vs. embroidered patch.
At American Patch, we create a variety of patch types to suit your needs. One of the most popular type is our woven patch, which is different from an embroidered patch. Woven patches are created by weaving threads together to form the patch. This provides a number of advantages. Here are four reasons to choose custom woven patches.
If you’re in the market for patches and haven’t heard, American Patch offers a new patch method called “combination patches.” We’ve combined the look of traditional embroidered patches with the modern technique of dye sublimated patches to create something new and exciting.
