The Embossed Advantage

Why you should use Embossed and not Embroidered Products

Since 1995, in some of the world’s most inhospitable environments, embossed insignia has stood the test of time.

High Definition

Identification can never be underestimated – with visibility over a greater distance, embossed badges make your organization stand out from the crowd.

Extremely Durable

Embossed products are fully engineered to provide excellent long lasting finish.


Your design can be reproduced with the choice of up to 8 colors per badge and with over 50 stock base fabric colors we can recreate your corporate image in stunning clarity.  Any shape of badge can be accommodated and the indented border produces a professional finish that also serves as a useful sewing guide.

UV Resistant

Embossed products do not suffer from prolonged exposure to light.


The badges are non-absorbent, making them ideal for outdoor and work wear use.

Easy Care

Hand and machine washable, embossed images can withstand ironing temperatures in excess of 338°f and are dry cleanable.  Please note: do NOT launder or clean patches with bleach or by adding bleach to the wash cycle.

Tried and Tested

All edges and joins are fused, so no sewing is used, therefore the product is more durable and the design and dimensions are consistent as they are fully engineered; producing a very high quality specification.
