New Patch Techniques

Introducing 7 new decoration techniques that offer rich color, eye-catching detail and exciting texture. From dimensional effects to intricate details and innovative finishes, these patch techniques provide a unique opportunity to elevate your cap’s design.
FlexStyle™️ Domed
Offers a shiny finish that creates a 3D effect, elevating brand logos or designs with a tactile experience. Available in both metallic and non-metallic finishes.
FlexStyle™️ Flat
A 3D effect that appears flat yet dimensional, providing a subtle elevation to the design. Like the domed version, it comes in metallic and non-metallic finishes, offering versatility in branding applications.
Print Stitch
An innovative hybrid of embroidered and sublimated patch techniques, combining a full-color, photographic background with vibrant embroidery for added dimension and texture. This technique offers the best of both worlds, bringing designs to life with rich detail and depth.
Heat Transfer
Heat transers offer a sleek, durable alternative to traditional sewn-on decorations. Utilizing advanced adhesive technology, these decorations can be securely attached to a variety of caps without the need for sewing, providing a clean and seamless look.
Chenille
Known for their plush, textured surface, Chenille patches offer a classic look often associated with varsity letters and collegiate apparel. These patches are perfect for adding a touch of nostalgia or sophistication.
Woven
Utilizing a tight interlaced weaving process, woven patches allow for intricate designs with a high level of detail, without the need for fabric backing.
Embroidered Appliques
High-quality embroidered appliques that mimic the appearance of direct embroidery. These patches come with a thin-stitched border and can be crafted into freeform shapes, perfect for detailed logos or designs.
