How to Choose the Right Company to Make Your Custom Patches

Posted by Arif on January 29th, 2020

There are many companies advertising online custom embroidery services, but only a handful can satisfy their high claims. If you are looking to order Custom Patch, Woven Patches, or some other type of embroidery emblem it is a good idea to do a little research to find a company that offers the highest quality patch at the most reasonable price.

The first thing you should do is visit the website of the company you are considering. See if you can find out how long the company has been in the embroidery business. Be wary of companies that did not have their phone number, you'll want to be able to speak with a trained sales associate before you place an order. When you get a salesperson on the phone, check to make sure any special sales or offers that are advertised on the site are still being offered and if there are restrictions (such as minimum order) attached to the deal.

The company also had to make a price list in a visible place on their website. Ask the seller if the company they have a guaranteed price, or if they honor competitor coupons or quote. Most of the leading suppliers of custom patches will match or beat a competing offer as long as you present it to them in writing. If you need a patch on a specific date, let the seller know immediately, because prices for the "rush" orders are often higher than the advertised price.

Another way to measure a company's reputation embroidery is to determine whether a large group or organization, such as the Boy Scouts of America, has been officially licensed them to make their patches and insignia. In the case of Scouting, only a licensed company is allowed to display the official logo on their websites and advertising material. established organizations such as Scouts are very careful about the companies they work with, so that an endorsement from them is a good sign.

Finally, visit the gallery of the company and look at the patch they have to show there. If the company has little or poor quality images on their website, they may try to hide the fact that they are made of poor quality patch.

Do you plan to submit your own artwork, using a company that employs an "in-house" designers. This will make things easier and faster turnaround time if there are last minute changes need to be made. If a company is too cheap to hire a designer yourself, you do not want them to design your patch.

Custom Patch industry is a competitive one, with almost every company today offering free artwork, samples, and US shipments. Do not just give your business to the lowest bidder, take the time to do a little research, talk to a sales professional, and make sure you choose an established company that has a history of giving up their claims.
