Merrowed patches are sewn up and over the exterior edges of the patch, giving it a clean and finished look. This style of patch is ideal for simple designs and regular shapes, such as circles, ovals, rectangles, and squares. Merrowing can only be applied to patches that are 1.75 inches or larger, so it is not suitable for very small patches. The merrowed edge provides a classic and professional look, making it a popular choice for caps and other apparel. The stitching of the merrowed border is done with a special machine that creates a twisted, overlock stitch, which helps to prevent fraying and adds to the durability of the patch.
Heat Cut Edge
Heat cut patches, also known as laser cut patches, are created using a high-precision laser cutting machine to create a precise and clean edge on the patch. This method is ideal for intricate designs or irregular shapes that cannot be achieved with traditional merrowed borders. This style of patch is ideal for intricate designs, as it allows for clean, sharp edges and precise detailing. Heat cut patches can be made in a variety of shapes and sizes, making them a versatile option for a wide range of applications, including cowboy hat patches, apparel, bags, and hats.
