Is it better to make appliqué patches from scratch or buy them ready to go?

In the case of appliqué patches, it might be better to purchase the patches already made, as there are companies which specialize in this type of work and have the equipment and skills to easily make these types of patches. Making appliqués by hand can be done, but the process can be laborious, and the cost per patch may require a high price point to make any profit. The markup on patches needs to be reasonable, so keep that in mind when deciding how to make the patches you offer.
