Woven patches are manufactured using polyester thread on a loom. Unlike an embroidered patch this process allows your design to be woven directly into the weave of the finished fabric for a much higher resolution and sharper finish than is possible with embroidery. Woven patches are generally around the same price as embroidered patches, however they do have a higher minimum order quantity.
