What is 50% , 75% and 100% Embroidery?

50 % percent embroidered patches have embroidery that covers 50 percent or less of the twill backing’s surface area. Mostly use for simple designs where less detail is required.  Like name patches etc.

75% embroidered patches are those where more than 50% but less than or equal to 75% of twill area is embroidered. Patches with 75% embroidery allow for larger and more centered embroidery design elements. The distinction between the height of the twill backing and the texture is filled by embroidered area details.

The 100% Embroidered Patches are our highest-quality patch, and the customer chooses the thread color for the entire patch, which does not have any visible twill while thread covering the entire twill patch backing. Because of its exceptional quality and appearance, this style of patch is one of the most popular options available at Best Custom Patches.
