Custom Chenille Patch Borders

Borders are a crucial final touch for a custom chenille embroidered patch the two most popular options are a merrowed edge or a hot cut border.

A merrowed edge is made with an overlock machine going around the border of the patch. It is probably the most classic border offered, typically found in girl scout badges or first responder patches. It is best for patches that are traditional shapes like circle or square.

A hot cut border is better when your patch is an unusual shape. It is created when the patch is cut with a hot knife or laser cuts the patch.

Custom Chenille Patch Sweatshirts vs Custom Flocked Sweatshirts: Which is Better?

Custom Chenille Patch Sweatshirts vs Custom Flocked Sweatshirts is a tough question to answer. These two services are the most dimensional and tactile services offered with custom merch. They both found popularity at the tail end of the 20th century, giving both services a vintage feel. The answer is found in personal preference. We suggest producing samples if your unsure of what service fits your vision. Or set up an appointment to stop by our showroom to get to see (and feel) these products for yourself.
