Appliqué is a technique in which words, shapes, or logos are transformed into “patches” that are sewn on the flag, rather than printed. Appliqué is much like embroidery, only much more affordable, and adds a professional 3D look to your flag. Flags can be completely done using appliqué on 200 denier nylon, or you may choose to have certain aspects of your flag done in appliqué.
The word "appliqué" is derived from the French verb "appliquer," meaning "to put on." It refers to a textile craft in which one piece of fabric is sewn over another for a decorative effect. Appliqué was first discovered when clothes ripped and needed fixing; requiring patches of fabric to be sewn over the top of the rip, otherwise known as patchwork. Appliqué is found in many forms of folk art, ranging from the purely decorative to the symbolic.
