The following factors determine the pricing of your embroidered cloth badges:
- Size. The larger the size the higher the cost.
- Number of thread colours. If greater than 7 colours or if metallic threads are required they will incur an additional cost.
- The amount of embroidery. The more complex the embroidery, the greater the cost
- Quantity. The higher the quantity, the lower cost per badge. Minimum order quantity is normally 30.
- Border type. Embroidered borders with hot knife cut cost more than a standard over-locked border.
- Backing option. Iron-on heat seal backings incur an additional cost.
- Delivery. Badges can be collected from our Riverwood, NSW premises.
Alternatively, delivery charges incur an additional fee.

Free Design Advice for your Badges
Top tips for designing Embroidered Cloth Badges:
- UPPER CASE LETTERING always looks best on embroidery and ideally should be at least 6mm in height.
- Choose contrasting colours. For example if your colours are black and green, it is better to use them together on a white background rather than embroider black directly onto green.
- Choose any size or shape. Don’t restrict your thinking – almost anything is possible!

A standard embroidered cloth badge can have up to seven thread colours plus the colour of your background material. Extra colours and/or metallic thread are available options at a slightly higher price.
Badge Borders and Backings
An over-locked border is the standard edge used for Action Badges’ embroidered cloth badges. However, unusual shapes may make an embroidered border with a hot knife edge a more attractive solution. For those less keen on sewing, an iron-on heat seal backing is also available.

How is the size determined?
The size for pricing is expressed in millimetres as half the sum of the height and the width – e.g. if the badge is 60mm high and 100mm wide the calculation would be (60+100)/2=80. Thus the size for pricing would be 80mm.
What is the production time?
Normally you should allow up to 2 to 3 weeks from the time you have signed off the final artwork and have placed a firm order. However, if you have a tighter deadline, please let your Action Badges account representative know and we will advise if we are able to meet your required delivery date.
