Sublimation of patches is a full-color printing process that allows for any color and gradient on your patch. Sublimated patches are made of a polyester twill background on which the sublimation takes place. Thus, you can not feel any relief touching the sublimated badges.
On the other hand, sublimation printing can also be done on a 100% embroidered patch with a white polyester thread. A 100% embroidered sublimated patch therefore obtains the relief and firmness of an embroidered patch while allowing the printing of small details and many colors, like the classic sublimated patch.
The essence of sublimation of patches lies, of course, in the perfect printing of the pattern of your choice on the front.
But the manufacture of sublimated patches does not stop at the reproduction of your logo.
After their printing by sublimation, the finishing of your choice is added to the outline of your sublimated badges.
Embroidery around the edges of the patches, similar to piping.
Precise cutting of the contour for a "smooth" effect.
There are several ways to attach your sublimated patches to your clothing. Some are permanent, others are removable.
Maybe your patches with sublimation are not intended to be worn on fabric.
In any case, there is always a type of backing that suits your needs!
Do you have a high-temperature press? Use it to permanently attach your patches to garments without sewing.
The back of your patches has a heat-seal layer that will fuse with the fabric under the heat and pressure of your press.
Perfect for sewing your patch onto a garment. We will not provide any special finish on the back of the patch to facilitate needle sewing.
Please note that some threads may remain visible.
Removable at will, the patch with velcro offers you total freedom. Just a simple "scratch"... and it can be easily removed or firmly attached to your garments!
Tip: Remember to choose the color of your hook & loop based on the color of the garment where your patch will be placed. This way, the velcro won't stand out from the fabric when you remove your patch.
Like a sticker, stick your patch on your garments and move it as you like!
The patch with self-adhesive backing can be stuck and removed multiple times... without excessive use! The delicacy of the adhesive surface exposes it to some wear and tear.
The back of the patches is covered with a plastic layer that ensures a clean and perfect finish.
Its main advantage? Your patch perfectly conforms to the fabric, making sewing easier!
Patches with sublimation are made by printing your logo onto a polyester twill, which means they remain smooth like a regular piece of fabric.
Only the backing and the front fabric give thickness to sublimated patches. As a result, they more flexible than patches with an embroidered layer.
Thanks to sublimation, small letters and fine details can be printed on sublimated patches, whereas they could not be embroidered with other types of patches.
