One that belongs to the most important as well as crucial aspects to consider at the time when you order your custom embroidered patches happen to be to decide on top of the embroidery coverage because this decision can make or break your patch design as well as also the bank. What happens to be it? How do you do that? Does it make an existing difference? Yes, it does, as well as below we are going to explain to you the basics as well as the calculations to do that properly.

Manufacturing an existing embroidered patch requires two basic raw materials:

Twill

Embroidery thread

These two raw materials happen to be the basis that belongs to what forms the embroidery coverage/percentage.

What does embroidery coverage mean?

The term embroidery coverage or embroidery percentage happens to be used to define the percentage that belongs to the design that happens to be formed by using stitches or thread.

Embroidery coverage or embroidery percentage happens to be an existing very important aspect that belongs to any patch design during the same time that it affects the look that belongs to the patch during the same time that well the cost. Every 1 square inch can consist of an existing maximum that belongs to 2,000 stitches that belong to embroidery coverage.

Basic technical information

Remember the following figures:

¼ square inch = 500 stitches

½ square inch = 1000 stitches

1 square inch = 2000 stitches

An existing 3-inch x 2-inch patch consists that belongs to 6 square inches, which means it can have an existing maximum that belongs to 12,000 stitches.

An existing 3 x 2-inch rectangular patch has an existing area that belongs to around 6 square inches as well as with 100% embroidery coverage it can consist that belongs to an existing maximum that belongs of 12,000 stitches, now the way to reduce this stitch count as well as reduce the embroidery coverage/percentage happens to be to minimize the number that belongs to stitches that happen to be used to create the design.

How to calculate?

In the possibility that you have the desire to calculate the percentage/coverage that belongs to embroidery that is going to belong to any design you need to work according to the following formula:

The number that belongs to actual stitches / maximum number that belongs to possible stitches x 100 = embroidery coverage

An existing 3-inch circular patch has an existing area that belongs of 7.068 square inches as well as with 100% embroidery coverage it can consist that belongs to an existing maximum that belongs of 14,136 possible stitches, now the way to reduce this stitch count as well as reduce the embroidery coverage/percentage happens to be to minimize the number that belongs to actual stitches that happen to be used to create the design.

Let us explain it with an existing example:

Let’s say you happen to be making an existing circular 3” embroidered patch, as well as your design, consists that belongs to an existing light blue sky (around 5 square inches) as well as white clouds (around 2 square inches). Now, you need to decide on the possibility that you have the desire to select:

Option 1: light blue thread to form the sky as well as a white thread to form the clouds, or;

Option 2: you are going to use an existing light blue twill to form the sky as well as a white thread to form the clouds.

On the possibility that you go with option 1, you are going to exist as a doing 100% embroidery coverage because you happen to be using stitches/thread to form both, 5 square inches that belong to the sky as well 2.068 square inches that belong to the clouds.

On the possibility that you go with option 2 you happen to be using light blue polyester blue during the same time that the sky as well as is going to use white thread to stitch the clouds (2.068 square inches x 2000 stitches = 4,136 stitches), therefore you save 10,000 stitches by using the light blue twill during the same time that the sky, as well as the embroidery coverage that is going to belong to this option, is going to exist as a 29.25% using the above formula.

4,136 / 14,136 x 100 = 29.25%

What happens to be better?

At the time when it comes down to what happens to be better, it depends. Less embroidery coverage can save costs, especially on the possibility that you happen to be making large quantities except for existing higher embroidery coverage happens to be much better on the possibility that you happen to be considering the aesthetics that belongs to the patch. The same design with 100% embroidery coverage is going to have an existing more premium look than an existing patch with 50% embroidery. So, it depends on top of what your priorities happen to be.
