When we started this business, one of our guiding principles was to provide the cutest and highest-quality kids iron-on applique patches that we could, at a reasonable price. As you may have read in About Us, there are patches out there, but nowhere near the quality we (or more importantly, you!) would expect! We literally build quality into our patches. Here's how:
Our team reviews each and every design and selects the ones we think you and kids will adore. (As each of us are parents, we think we are pretty good at that!) We then select each fabric and thread color, reviewing these against the original design - and do this until we are absolutely satisfied.
We then create a sample patch to look for any inconsistencies in the embroidery stitches and layout of the appliqué. Inconsistencies are corrected and we review again. When we are fully satisfied with the sample patch, we approve it for production.
The hands-on approach does not end there, though.
In production, the selected fabric applique is cut and laid by hand in order for the machine to embroider onto it. Once the patch has been embroidered, it is then trimmed and embellished by hand. As with any hand-assembly process, there may be slight variations in the finish of the product. However, these variations are very minor, if they exist at all.
THAT'S what we mean by quality. We feel pretty good about what we are offering, and can say with hand on heart that the utmost care and attention was given to each and every design!
