BORDERS: Marrow vs. Heat Cut

The most commonly used borders on our patches are the marrow border and the heat cut border. Using stitching, the marrow border gives the patch a nice clean edge for more common shapes.

The heat cut border is used on patches with many outside angles and difficult edges. Below you can see an example of each.

Size is also an important element of the patch order. The larger the patch, the more material and workmanship your order will require. There are no average patch sizes since every patch we create is custom made to order. Many times we let the artwork or design idea dictate the size that will work best for your custom embroidered patch. The following equation is used to determine patch size:

Length + width/ 2
