Machine embroidered badges

For the production of the badges, a computer program has to be made which will be filed for reorders over the next decades.
We offer a wide choice of materials and colors for your patches and badges. Small appliques can be embroidered as well as big badges for the backsides of jackets. You can iron these on, sew them onto clothing or have them fitted by special kinds of attachments (see below).

Twill fabric Twill fabric as standard material for badges
the heavy-duty standard material for badges that are sewn onto shirts and blouses, washable up to 60°C.
Felt matter Felt matter as basic material
soft material, similar to felt, for badges that are suitable for chemical cleaning, mostly sewn onto uniform jackets
Special materials Special materials for machine embroidered badges
Velvet, artificial leather, reflective or camouflage fabrics - embroidered badges can be made on many materials
Embroidery threads various embroidery threads
Badges are embroidered with water and light resistant threads of artificial silk in many colors, but also in gold and silver metallic

Motives and texts

For best legibility of writings on the embroidered badges, we recommend a minimum size of 5 mm for the letters, and block capitals at that. In this size, the single letters are put together by parallel stitches resulting in a clear caption.

On demand, we use cursive text types or Gothic ones with serifs. Wherever especially the small letters show many narrow curves or thin lines, they have to be embroidered by consecutive step lines. This may reduce legibility.

Elaborate motives are embroidered according to technical feasibility. Our modern embroidery computers also create badges in colorful, detailed presentation as well as with uncommon effects, e.g. flames in different shades.

For special effects, we also produce badges with high relief 3D embroidery. Here, the embroidery threads are stretched over rubber-like pads. Letters or plain motives can thus be presented in a very impressive way.

Outside shapes and borders

There are almost no restriction in the choice of the shape. Straight rims with pointed edges are equally possible as shapes that are cut exactly along the logo. Even cut-outs/holes within the badge do not pose any problem. The remaining material just must not be too thin so that it won't tear. We will give you good advice as to how your motive can best be transferred into an embroidered badge.

Badges in simple shapes without acute angles get a merrowed border. This border is put on by a special machine after the badge itself is finished and therefore is always made in a width of 3 mm that cannot be changed.All edges appear a little rounded. Badges with a merrowed border can be sewn on easily by machine or hand. On small patch formats, a 3 mm wide merrowed border may look a little blunt.

Especially small badges or shapes with acute angles get a stitched border that is being cut out and heat-sealed by laser. Thus, the basic fabric cannot fringe. The stitched border is embroidered at the same time as the rest of the badge and can be produced in any width..

Combination embroidery / digital printing

Photographic motives can neither be represented true to original in pure embroidery nor in woven execution. Transfer printing on fabric is not always the solution here as the effects of the embroidery or woven structures get lost. From quantities of 100 pieces up we offer a new kind of production - the digital printing on embroidered background. This combination offers a phantastic impression - the motives appear almost as on a painting.


Attachment types

Machine embroidered badges do not necessarily have to be sewn on. For changing use on uniforms or shirts, Fahnen Kössinger also offers alternative kinds of attachment. Badges can also be equipped with heat-seal or self-adhesive backing or finished as keyrings.

Tuck in flap for attachment of badges e.g. on breast pockets

Tuck in flap

that is cut out in the shape of the badge. It is stuck onto the rim of the breast pocket and thus enables a fully mobile usage of the patch.
Badge with velcro backing for attachment

consisting of hook and soft part. The soft fabric part is sewn tightly onto the clothing. The badge itself is equipped with the hook part and can be removed.
Badge attachment with additional fabric backside and safety pin

Badge with iron-on backing

Iron-on backing

The badges have to be ironed-on from the inside of the clothing by exerting strong pressure. We recommend an iron as used in the industry to ensure a secure attachment and good durability.
Badge with self-adhesive backside

Self-adhesive backside

The badges are delivered on carrying paper and can be used as stickers. They are not suitable for changing use as dirt and fluff might stick to the adhesive area.
