Sublimated Patches: You Can Make Them (And So Can We)

A lot of our customers are loving our sublimated patches,  and it’s easy to see why.    They’re cost effective,  can display almost any artwork in a stylish and colorful way,  and EnMart turns sublimated patch order in a matter of days.   If you’re looking for another product to offer your customers,  or a great way to present detailed artwork that isn’t suited for embroidery,  sublimated patches are your answer.  EnMart has been creating these patches for years,  and we know how to create a sublimated patch that is durable and attractive.

Now, of course,  we don’t have to be the people making the sublimated patches.   All of the blank patches EnMart sells are 100% polyester and suitable for sublimating.   We have many customers who purchase the blanks and sublimate them in their own shops.   Since EnMart also sells sublimation supplies including printers and paper,  we can be your one stop shop for purchasing what you need to create sublimated patches on your own.

If, on the other hand,  you’re too busy, don’t want to sublimate,  or simply don’t have the time to learn something new,  EnMart can also serve as your fulfillment house and create sublimated patches for you.   For best results we ask that you supply vector artwork,  and include a .jpg of the art you want put on the patch.    This allows us to create a patch with minimal design work on our part,  and also to see what the finished art should be.  The minimum sublimated patch order is 25.

If you have any questions about sublimated patches, or if you would like a sublimated patch sample to wash test, please feel free to contact us.  We’ll be happy to answer  any questions you have.

Advantages of Custom Sublimated Patches

Many people already know that EnMart sells blank patches and that those patches can, among other things, be sublimated, but some people may not be aware that EnMart also sells custom sublimated patches.   These patches are the exact same patches that you would buy as blanks and sublimate yourself,  except instead of you doing the sublimation,  we do it for you.

If, of course,  you want to sublimate your own patches,  we’ll be happy to sell you the blank patches,  and the printer, ink and paper with which you can do just that.    For those who may not have a sublimation system, however,  or who may not wish to sublimate their own patches,  EnMart can take the necessary artwork and create sublimated patches here in our facility.

There are some advantages to buying custom sublimated patches from EnMart:

Advantage 1:  We have a lot of experience with sublimation and with patches – EnMart’s parent company was created to sell emblems to industrial laundries.  Ensign Emblem was also instrumental in bringing inkjet sublimation to those same laundries.  We’ve been sublimating patches for a number of years,  and we’ve gotten very good at the process.

Advantage 2:  Sublimation allows use of complicated artwork – If artwork can be printed, it can be sublimated.   If your customer has a logo or a piece of artwork that has a lot of colors or a complicated design,  embroidery might not be an option.  Sublimation, however,  can handle complicated designs with ease.

Advantage 3:  You’re not limited to a standard rectangle –  EnMart offers patches in a variety of shapes and sizes.  Although the custom sublimated patches listed on our site are limited to the most popular sizes,  we do have a wide variety of sizes available.  If you need a special size or shape sublimated,  we can help.

Advantage 4:  EnMart’s custom sublimated patches are durable – Our custom sublimated patches are created to withstand and industrial wash and dry, so they’re sure to hold up under an ordinary laundry cycle.
