Quality Embroidered Cloth Badges for Schools, Clubs and Corporate and Government Organisations

At Action Badges, we can either take your unique design or provide free design assistance. Our extensive experience in the design, manufacture and supply of embroidered cloth badges helps create a unique badge that your school, club or organisation will be proud of. The standard price includes up to seven thread colours. Extra colours, metallic threads and iron-on heat seal backing are available options.


Robust and Versatile Badges

Embroidered cloth badges can be attached to a wide range of garments including caps, bags, shirts, pullovers and jackets. Embroidered cloth badges are superior to woven or screen printed badges. They are made from robust, colour fast materials, which make them washable time and time again. They are likely to outlive the life of your garment!


Promote the identity of your school, club or organisation

Embroidered cloth badges are the ideal way to advertise or identify schools, clubs, associations, organisations, fraternities, work teams or social clubs. The custom made design will ensure your group’s unique identity stands out.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is the minimum number of badges that I need to order?

The minimum order quantity is 30.

Pricing

Each quote is calculated based on your design requirements. Our best price is provided for each job.

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. 

We offer special prices to all state and national sporting bodies and scouts and guides.

For new customers 50% of order value is payable at time of order, and balance is payable 14 days after delivery, or on terms as otherwise agreed in writing.

Free Design Hints and Advice

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!

Badge Colours

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.
