Just like stickers, t-shirts and pin badges, embroidered patches are a trendy fashion accessory designers love to produce with their custom designs. They come in all shapes and sizes, some with multiple colours; others with simple mono designs. Common uses include novelty promotional items, saleable merchandise, or souvenirs for events. What I personally love about these creative examples in this showcase is seeing how the digital design is replicated in thread, which transforms the artwork into a tangible little item with wonderful patterns and textures.

  1. Those are amazing, but my favorite is one you may not have heard of before. Monster Rangers (monsterrangers.com) have an entire community based on creativity earning patches! Give them a peep!

    btw, love the Conspiracy Dealer patch.

  2. Lovely design, great collection.
    Especially love the “Vector scouts” and “Death before spec work”, I’d put them on my jacket!

  3. When I saw the e-mail for this post, I imagined embroidered jeans and such! LOL That is my experience with it! I used to embroider on my jeans and my friends’ jeans! LOL
    These are so beautiful! I had no idea there were even ‘patches’ like these!
    Cool post!

  4. Well, damn! This is my favorite showcase that you have done. I’m a big fan of embroidery and patches. You picked out a great selection and am checking out a few of these to see if I can buy some.

    The “Death Before Spec Work” and “Crptozoology” are the one’s I liked the most.

    Thx, Chris!
