2. Mark the content clearly:

Second, you need to clearly mark the size of the patch, and the color you want to choose for each area.

You can refer to our Thread color book and Twill color book and provide the color number.

Or you can also provide a Pantone color number (solid coated color chart), and we will find the closest thread and twill color number according to it. As the color number system is different, if we reference with Pantone color number, we can only find the color as close as possible for you. The color cannot be exactly the same, please kindly aware of this.

3. How you prefer for your patch:

When producing patches, please be sure to inform the embroidery thread area, edge method and back method.

The general method of patching is full embroidering and leaving cloth bottom (partial embroidery). Please inform whether you want to keep the cloth bottom or embroider all. Then the edges can be OVERLOCK (MERROW) and HEAT CUT (HOT CUT). You can choose different edge presentation methods according to your preferences, but the overlock border has its appearance restrictions. Generally speaking, for simple and symmetrical shapes such as square, round, triangle… etc. are suitable for overlock border. If you want to know more, you can check our MEDIA CENTER to watch more introductions. Finally, you will need to confirm the method of the back. Marktex has a lot of methods to provide the back. The most popular methods are no back glue (sew on), Iron on glue, Hard PVC glue and Peel-off adhesive sticker.
