Custom patches are a great way to add some flair and individuality into your wardrobe. No matter what type of custom design you're looking for, from simple embroidery or stitching onto clothing--we have the perfect patch! Our skilled designers will create something truly special just as longs they know about all aspects involved in creating high-quality items such as price range per unit time frame turnaround period durability texture etc..

Vivipins takes pride on being able provide customers with affordable prices while still maintaining top quality products so everyone can enjoy them at their fullest potential.

1.Embroidered Patches

Embroidered patches are the perfect combination of affordability, durability and design potential with hundreds of thread colors to match your logo or drawing. They’re also easily made meaning they can be customized quickly for any project deadline!

A unique texturing on these products brings designs “to life” by giving them depth that would otherwise not exist without this extra flair - making embroidery an excellent choice if you're looking for something classic but still want something bolder than just sew-on letters/numbers etc..

2.Woven Patches

Woven patches have tighter-weaves so it is possible to pack more details into a smaller area.  This means that they can pack more detail into a given space than embroidery without sacrificing the “texture” of this type of design element - something which may be key when you need your words easily readable at close range. 

Woven patches are great for small lettering, due to their tighter weave. Woven Patches give us all these benefits but with less texture so it works out just fine if we want our text easy enough read from farther away.

3.PVC Patches

PVC patches are the perfect way to add some personality and style while still providing you with protection. PVC patches can be easily cleaned off when needed with water, soap or household cleaner if anything gets spilled on them!

Made from tough, durable material that can withstand anything thrown its way; whether it's water or grit! The unique design allows for great creativity when designing our own logos on top of an already existing pattern (which we offer) but also provides a really cool 3D effect when creating something new altogether.

4.Chenille Patches

Chenille patches are old-fashioned, but they're back in fashion! Where it shines is when there's bold color and simple lettering or design. They're best for bold colors with simple lettering or designs on them!

5.Printed Patches

Do you love wearing clothes with your favorite photos, words or designs plastered all over them? Well now's the time to wear something that was made by someone else. This technique is called screen printing and it creates high quality garments from low resolution images! 

Our printed patches have all been printed with a high quality and they come from the same printing technique so you can wear your images proudly to show off their vibrant colors! The process of printing on t-shirts and other garments may be similar, but these are not just a way to wear your favorite photos. They're also effective for projects with tight deadlines or those looking for something that can easily blend into its surroundings — like an invisible band logo!

6.Leather  Patches
