Embroidered Crests

Embroidered crests are decorative designs that are made by stitching thread onto a piece of fabric or garment using a needle and thread. These crests typically feature a specific design or image, such as a logo, emblem, symbol, or lettering, that represents an organization, team, club, or military unit. Embroidered crests are often used as a way to showcase affiliation, recognition, or achievement, and are commonly found on uniforms, jackets, hats, bags, and other apparel items. They can be made using a variety of materials, including cotton, polyester, nylon, or wool, and can be customized in terms of size, color, and design to meet specific needs and preferences.

Leather Patches

A leather crest or patch is a small piece of leather that is typically sewn onto a garment or accessory, such as a jacket, bag, or hat. It is often used to display a logo, emblem, or design, and is a popular way to add a personal touch or custom branding to an item.

Leather crests or patches can be made from a variety of materials, including cowhide, lamb, or goat leather, and are available in a range of colors, textures, and finishes. They can be embossed, stamped, or laser engraved with a design, or can be hand-painted for a more unique and customized look.

Leather crests or patches are commonly used in the fashion industry, particularly in the production of leather jackets, bags, and hats, but are also used in other industries, such as sports, military, and scouting, to denote team or organization affiliation.

Woven Crests and Patches

Woven crests are similar to embroidered crests in that they are decorative designs made to represent a specific organization or group. However, instead of being made by stitching thread onto a piece of fabric, woven crests are created by weaving threads together on a loom. This process produces a high-quality, durable crest with a smooth and detailed finish.

Woven crests are often used for more intricate designs or when a smaller crest size is required, as the weaving process allows for greater detail and precision than embroidery. They can also be made using a wider range of materials, such as cotton, polyester, or metallic thread, and can be customized in terms of size, shape, color, and design.

Woven crests are commonly used in military, sports, and corporate settings, and are typically attached to uniforms, jackets, bags, or other apparel items. They provide a professional and distinctive look that can help to build team spirit and foster a sense of belonging among group members.

Both woven and embroidered patches are great ways to get the message across. Woven crests are perfect for motorcycle jacket crests.

By using different accessories, we can offer woven key chains, dog tags, promotional items and zipper pulls.

Chenille Patches

A chenille crest is a type of embroidered patch or emblem that is made using chenille yarn. Chenille yarn is a fuzzy, textured yarn that is often used to create a soft and plush effect.

Chenille crests typically feature a design that is made up of layers of chenille yarn, which are cut to create a 3D effect. The design is then embroidered onto a backing material, such as felt or twill, to create the finished crest.

Chenille crests are commonly used for varsity jackets, letterman jackets, and other types of school or sports apparel. They are often used to display a student's or athlete's achievements or team affiliations. Chenille crests can be customized with a wide range of colors and designs, making them a popular choice for personalization and branding.

Dye Sublimated Crests

A dye sublimated crest is a type of crest or patch that is created using a printing process called dye-sublimation. In this process, a special type of ink is used that turns into a gas when heated, and then binds with the fibers of the fabric.

To create a dye-sublimated crest, a design is first printed onto a special type of paper using a digital printer. The paper is then placed onto the fabric, and both are placed into a heat press. The heat press applies heat and pressure, causing the ink to turn into a gas and then bond with the fabric.

The result is a high-quality, full-color crest that is long-lasting and durable. Dye sublimation is often used for custom patches and crests, as well as for printing onto a variety of fabrics and materials, including polyester, spandex, and nylon.

Backing Options: Iron on, hard PVC, paper coating, adhesive tape, Velcro backing, no backing.
Border Options: Merrow, hand cut, heat cut, laser cut.



An epaulette is a type of ornamental shoulder piece or decoration that is often worn as part of a uniform.

Traditionally, epaulettes were worn by military officers as a way of indicating their rank and status. Epaulettes can be made from a variety of materials, including fabric, metal, or leather, and may feature decorative elements such as fringe, tassels, or braiding.

In addition to their use in military uniforms, epaulettes can also be found on other types of uniforms, such as those worn by airline pilots, police officers, and other first responders. They may also be worn as part of ceremonial or formal attire, such as a marching band uniform or a formal dress jacket. Epaulettes can be highly customized with different colors, materials, and designs to reflect the wearer's organization or personal style.
