Different types of stitching will achieve different looks; in some cases, we may opt for direct embroidery, and in others, we will opt for patches and labels. Artwork limitations can end up determining which process you go for. We can also produce a larger quantity of the design upfront and use the patches for different applications on bags or apparel, or just a great gift for folks to use as they please. Sending out Patches and stickers with a notebook, for instance, is an easy gift to ship .
