Woven badges

Woven badges are ideal for designs with small lettering and detailed artwork. The design is woven into the cloth, a backing is applied, and the badge is finished with an over-locked edge. For intricate shapes, the badge is hot-knife cut to shape. This prevents threads from fraying and results in a flatter border.

Embroidered badges

Your artwork is embroidered onto a backing material, creating a raised look and tactile feel. The embroidered badge is then laser-cut to shape and finished with an over-locked edge. Alternatively, the badge can be hot-knife cut, leaving a border around the badge. A heat-applied backing is also available for embroidered badges.

About Nottingham Badges

Nottingham Badges began trading over 40 years ago in the historic Lace Market in Nottingham, supplying screen-printed tee-shirts and sweat­shirts. As the company grew, sales of garments and badges were formed into separate businesses; today, screen-printing is provided by our sister company, Nottingham Screen Prints, while Nottingham Badges continues to supply bespoke woven and embroidered badges to a wide customer base.

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

Our ordering process is simple and straightforward. Supply your own artwork, or we can produce artwork from your ideas or rough sketches. With our decades of experience in the badges industry, you can count on a first-rate personal service from Nottingham Badges.

We are confident that our prices are competitive when compared with quotes from other suppliers of top quality cloth badges, and we are proud to continue to offer our customers a friendly and personal service.
