Our custom leather patches have been making quite the buzz around the decorated apparel industry. Jerzees Apparel and apparel decorating expert, Marshall Atkinson, have a YouTube series called, “Adventures in Decorating” where they tour the top screen printing & embroidery shops around the country to feature innovative decorating techniques. They came to Zome Design to see how we make our leather patches and embroider them onto garments.
In this video, we walk through the entire steps of how we take a faux leatherette material, laser etch & cut it, apply a 3m sticker backing, and then embroider the leather patch onto a timeless Jerzees 1/4 Zip Fleece Sweatshirt.
For this series, we decided to take it up a notch and add a felt patch behind the leatherette. This really helps the leatherette patch pop off the sweatshirt and give it more dimension.
