If you have looked very far, you know that it is unusual to get your custom shape, size, and with a stitched
edge on a small order with no minimum at an affordable price.
A special order patch is a good option when you have a "regular" shape onto which a merrowing machine can stitch an edge.
If your shape is "regular" with no inside turns, and if you don't mind paying more, and if you can wait the additional 7-10 days for us to send out and receive back your special order patches, then we can get edged patches in your desired size and shape.
"Irregular" shapes cannot have a merrowed stitched edge, and the best option is a non-edged or to place your design inside another shape such as a circle or rectangle.
A "regular" shape is something with a few corners and curves, such as ovals, squares, circles, rectangles, triangles, shields, rockers, etc. All their shapes are convex, meaning a merrow edging machine can go around the outside of all the corners.
An "irregular" or "unusual" shape is something with filigrees, banners, stickouts, etc. If some of the shapes are concave, meaning they turn inward, then a merrow edging machine will not work. Here is an example. It can only be done as a non-edged, or inside a regular shape such as circle or rectangle.
In most of our work we do not need to see your design to give you a quote. For special ordering where you require a stitched edge, we probably do need to see it in order to give you your options accurately.

We Do Not Make Embroidered Patches
Below are photos of embroidered patches we were
asked to reproduce, with the embroidered on the left and our dye sublimation versions on the right. We
sometimes add drop shadows to text to simulate three-dimensionality. Note that the lettering is
actually more readable and the map is more accurate and detailed in our dyed version.
