Embroidered Emblem Brochure 2010
Appliqué embroidered emblems bring together custom embroidery and the technique
of stitching together different levels and colours of materials into the design.
Made with 100% polyester threads and fabrics, these emblems are generally bigger
than standard custom embroidered emblems with larger pieces of fabric in varying
colours stitched to the base material, which allows for a reduced stitch count
and a unique blended texture of both materials and threads to create the design.
Appliqué emblems can be finished with different backing options for heat seal or
sew-on application, and can be trimmed with a merrowed border or stitched edge.
* 100% polyester construction
* Up to 15 design thread colours
* Minimum quantity ~ 25 units
* Blend of fabric pieces stitched together
* Perfect solution for large emblems
Ideal for larger emblems used on industrial uniforms or sports jerseys. Appliqué
emblem production borrows from a traditional hand-embroidery technique where
various base materials of different colour are sewn together (applied) to form a
blended base fabric. This process allows for a reduction in the number of
threaded stitches required to make specific parts of a design. Instead of using
solid embroidery in certain areas, pieces of material, cut to shape, are
embedded into the pattern.
This technique applies well to certain designs, chiefly larger back or front
emblems used on industrial uniforms or sports jerseys. There are some
limitations with respect to the size, shape and amount of inserted material
patterns, however, the final product can be very appealing and can illustrate a
design¹s overall creativity. And since the patterns within the designs use less
stitching, the final emblems are generally more flexible in feel when applied to
garments, and cost less than regular solid embroidered emblems.
Appliqué emblems are manufactured with 100% polyester threads and fabrics, and
can be finished with or without merrowed (surge over-lock) borders. They are
usually not coated with heat seal glues, as in most instances they are too large
to be applied with heat seal machines, however glue backings are available if
needed, in either highmelt or low-melt grades. Designs submitted to BCTI will be
presented to you in artwork format for approval, and will be custom quoted based
on quantity and complexity, taking into account emblem shape, size, stitch count
and cutting requirements.
These emblems can be produced with up to 15 design thread colours with no extra
cost, and for added convenience, can be ordered in quantities as low as 25
pieces per design.
