Types of Borders

No Border

A large percentage of the orders that we do for woven badges are without borders, the same goes for badges that are embroidered with felt as a base fabric.

EmbroideryBadge.UK can provide you with ready to applique` embroidered badges. For these types of orders there is no border required

Laser Cut Borders

99% of the orders that we do for woven badges are without borders, the same goes for badges that are embroidered with felt as a base fabric.

A laser border is cut to the shape of the design and is ideal for more intricate shapes that may have multiple in-cuts and sharp angles

Important tip: EmbroideryBadge.com provides you with a applique template stitch file along  with the laser cut badges  this allows you to reduce your running costs on heavy filled designs, as you can directly appliqué the laser cut badge onto the garment, Our applique template stitch file provided to you separately  will help you position the badge correctly and align the outlines  giving the impression of a direct embroidery for a fraction of the cost

Overlocked Border (also known as merrowed border)

The most common type of border is a overlocked border, which  goes around the edge of the entire patch, and is always  about 3mm thick.  A overlocked border is best suited for simple shapes, such as circles, ovals, squares, rectangles, and basic badge shapes etc
