Border Shapes and Types of Borders
Basic border shapes for custom patches can be Circles, Squares, Triangles, Rectangles, Shields, Badges, Ovals, etc. Rounded corners are also no problem.
For basic shapes of patches, the Overlock Edge Border (aka Merrow® Border) is often used to provide a classic look. However, you can choose a Low-Profile Edge Border if you prefer it.
If your patches need an Intricate Border Shape, on the other hand, we produce these as well. A Hot Needle Cut or Laser Cut Border is best for intricate border shapes. This allows the border shape to follow the outline stitching and it can be quite complex.
We have great Backing Options for custom patches. A-B offers Iron-On patches aka Heat Seal, Sew-On patches, VELCRO® Brand patches, Pressure Sensitive Adhesive patches, and Attach–MY–Patch™ (long-lasting adhesive) patches.
Our Attachements Guide is helpful for deciding what type to choose. So, please check it out!
