Pad Printing:

Paper Tape:

Made from twill fabric, patches have a merrowed edge and an adhesive back. Most embroidery shops dont own a merrowing machine, so making patches from scratch isnt an option, nor is it cost effective. One can still, however, supply them for the customer. Companies that specialize in making patches are plentiful, and the prices are much better than the average embroidery shop can manage. For the small odd jobs, though, blank patches are available in many shapes, colors and sizes.
An outline of a garment on paper. It usually embodies all the pieces necessary to cut a complete garment from material.
Pencil Rub:
A low-cost way of producing a sample of an embroidery design. Consists of a piece of tracing paper placed over a sewout and rubbed lightly with a pencil to produce an impression of the embroidery.
Petit Point:
Using a grid, like those used in cross-stitch, petit point is a single-angle stitch repeated in the same place until the desired fullness is achieved. Usually very stitch intensive.
