Woven badges are ideal for small lettering and fine detail. The design is woven into the cloth, a backing is applied, and the badge is finished with an overlocked border. For intricate shapes, the badge is hot-knife cut to shape, resulting in a flatter finish.

Embroidered badges

Your design is embroidered onto a backing material, creating a raised look and tactile feel. The badge is then laser-cut to shape and finished with an overlocked border. Alternatively, the badge can be hot-knife cut to shape to seal the thread ends, leaving a border around the badge. We can also supply badges with a heat-applied glue backing.

About Nottingham Badges

Nottingham Badges began trading in Nottingham’s Lace Market in 1977, supplying screen­printed tee-shirts, sweat­shirts, and badges. In a few years, as the company grew, sales of garments and badges were formed into separate businesses. We now supply bespoke woven and embroidered badges to a wide customer base, while screen­printing and sales of Fruit of the Loom leisure­wear are managed by our sister company, Nottingham ScreenPrints.

As a small, family-run business, we provide a prompt and personal service and aim to supply quality badges at com­petit­ive prices. Our design studio will send the final badge design for your approval but we now out-source pro­duction to an over­seas supplier whose state-of-the-art equipment enables us to supply badges at very keen prices.

We take pride in providing our customers with a friendly, personal service, and with our more than four decades of experience in the badges industry, you can be assured of a first-rate service from Nottingham Badges.
