NHB Gear offers custom sublimated patches on either
a durable canvas
material or satin fabric. Dye sublimation is a process where your logo
is tattooed down into the fibers of the fabric creating a permanent
image on the patch. This leaves nothing on top to fade, crack or peel
off. It is FAR superior to traditional screenprinting. Colors stay
bright and vibrant even after tons of use and
washings. Our printing process produces digital quality, full color
reproductions of your artwork. There is no setup charge, no screen
fees, and no extra charge for the number of colors. It is the
same price for 1 color or 100 colors. Patches have an UNFINISHED edge
designed to be folded under and sewn onto the gi or other garment. They
are cut at right angles, the shape determined by the dimensions of your

. After you select your size, fabric and dimension options and place
your order on the website, just send your high resolution or
vector art to firstname.lastname@example.org.
There is also a form to upload your graphics on the Custom Patch
Vector graphics are best (AI, PDF, SVG, EPS), but high resolution
images will work as well (PSD, JPG, TIF, PNG). Always specify the
dimensions of the PRINTED AREA.
Important tips for artwork
- Please do not upload
graphics before ordering.
- Your patches will only look as
good as the artwork you send. Web graphics are not ideal and are
usually of poor quality for printing.
- Send the original
artwork the logo was created in be it PhotoShop or Illustrator if at
all possible. Graphics lose quality every time they are saved or
- Whenever possible, send true vector graphics in AI
(Illustrator vCS2 or lower), PDF, or CDR (CorelDraw v12 or lower).
Convert all fonts to curves or outlines. We have an extensive font
collection, but it is always best to convert your fonts.
Send the highest resolution graphics you can. 300 or greater dpi is
color works best for our printing
process. RGB tends to produce more vibrant colors on the patches. We do
our best to match colors, but cannot guarantee exact matches.
Always specify the dimensions
of the PRINTED AREA when ordering or
- We cannot reproduce trademarked logos without
permission. Please see our Terms and Conditions for more information.
Gi/Kimono Sizing Chart
that all gis shrink to varying degrees. As a general rule, expect 1 to
1.5 inches of total shrinkage after the first few washes. HCK pants are
"shrink to fit" and typically shrink 2-3 inches. You can minimize
shrinkage by washing in cold and hang drying. This is the recommended
method to care for your gi. To maximize shrinkage, wash in warm. You
may also try using a dryer initially. This is not recommended for long
term care, however. When receiving your gi and trying it on for the
first time, always keep in mind the potential shrinkage as NHB Gear
cannot accept returns for refund or exchange after use or washing.

do I care for my gi?
Always wash the jacket and pants in COLD water.

use bleach or fabric softener. Always hang to dry. Hot tumble drying is
recommended because the tumbling in the dryer will fray the fabric over
time. The cold water wash and hang drying will improve the longevity of

Wash with like colors. Dry on medium heat. Never
use bleach or fabric softeners with wicking tees as they can damage the
