Custom Embroidered Patches, Woven Patches & Embroidery Labels – Amazing Quality


Example product applications of custom embroidered patches and woven labels.



Embroidered Patches- fabric backing options

You can choose between plain (for sew on), iron on (less durable / permanent than sewing on but saves sewing on time), hard PVC, double adhesive tape (stick on), paper coating, velvet, felt, cloth or velcro.

Embroidered patch threads are more thicker than woven patches, so are less suited for high detailed designs. The price for Custom Embroidered Patches is calculated in accordance to the percentage of coverage area that the logo takes up.


Custom Woven Patches and Woven Labels – no fabric backing

These types of labels are typically used to label garments.  They are produced with threads only and do not have any backing.

Woven Patches are produced with more thinner threads than embroidered patches. Woven patches are made of thread only, and stitched with a continuous design to achieve finer detail in the design and text of the patch. Woven Patches also have a smooth surface with no raised texture due to the patch being woven into the base material. We recommend woven patches if you have a very detailed design. In additional, for patches with complex edges such as waves, we recommend simple laser cutting (die cutting) rather than embroidering the edges.

When it comes to high quality embroidered patches and woven patches that look sensational and last for many years, QW Direct has you labelled from head to toe!

Why go to the great effort & expense to source the right clothing and then have it branded. Instead, it makes sense to use your already trusted garments, uniforms, sportswear and official clothing. Then just have them professionally branded or identified with our sensational embroidered patches or embroidery labels.

We are flexible to work within your custom design & sizing.
