Embroidery Coverage: Understanding The Different Levels

If you’re looking to add custom patches to your clothes, one important factor to consider is the level of embroidery coverage you want. Embroidery coverage refers to the amount of stitching that covers the patch, and is typically offered in three levels: 50%, 75%, and 100%. In this blog post, we’ll explore each level of coverage and help you determine which one is right for you.

50% Embroidery Coverage

At 50% embroidery, only half of the surface area of the patch is covered with stitching. This option is great for simple designs or logos that don’t require a lot of detail. If you’re looking for a more affordable option or have a tight budget, 50% coverage is a great choice.

75% Embroidery Coverage

If you want a more detailed design with a little more texture, 75% is a good option. At this level, 3/4 of the patch is covered with stitching, leaving some blank space for the design to breathe. This option is great for designs with a lot of text or fine details.

100% Embroidery Coverage

For the most detailed and intricate designs, 100% embroidery is the way to go. This option covers the entire patch with stitching, providing a rich, textured feel to the design. 100% coverage is perfect for designs with a lot of colors, gradients, or shading.

Which Level of Embroidery Coverage is Right for You?

The level of coverage you choose ultimately depends on your design and personal preferences. If you have a simple logo or design, 50% may be the most cost-effective option. If you have a more complex design with fine details, 75% embroidery may be the best choice. And if you want a rich, textured design, 100% coverage is the way to go.

No matter which level of coverage you choose, custom patches are a great way to add a personalized touch to your clothing. With the ability to customize your patch with your own design and choose from a variety of backing options, you can create a patch that perfectly suits your style.
