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.
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.
Wire-embroidered badges and insignia
Blazer badges and insignia for formal dresswear use gold- and silver-plated wire in addition to coloured threads. They are worn mainly by members of clubs and servicemen’s associations.
Badges for Scouts and GirlGuides
At Nottingham badges, we specialize in producing badges from your design ideas, but we are happy to work with your own finished artwork. We can also adapt or customize many of our badges to meet your requirements.

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. Nottingham Badges now supplies bespoke woven and embroidered badges to a wide customer base; our sister company, Nottingham ScreenPrints, manages the screenprinting business and sales of Fruit of the Loom leisurewear.
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.
Use our Get a Quote page to send us your artwork, your rough sketches or ideas, and an indication of badge size and the quantity required, to receive our prompt response. We are confident that our prices are competitive compared with those of other suppliers of quality cloth badges.
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.
