Making it POP: Flex Emblem

Making it POP: Flex Emblem

Flex Emblem elevates your brand with greater detail, an attractive appearance featuring bold or metallic finishes, and deeper, more detailed texturing. It’s more than an emblem, it’s a status symbol and it’s trending at retail right now. Choose Flex Emblem and make a bold brand statement without saying a word.

This new type of embellishment got its start in the garment and hat industry. As this decoration trend grew and became more popular in retail, it made sense that it would translate well in the promotional products space. 

Although there are many more items that can be embellished via the Flex Emblem process, we have recently noticed that it is trending in the following retail environments:

From Backpacks To Polos

Available on everything from coolers, totes and backpacks to most of our apparel, HXD combines the best attributes of two methods – the surface interest and high perceived value of embroidery, and the exceptional detail, unlimited color and location versatility of transfer.

And HXD is remarkably durable, as well. The adhesives have been tested to withstand everyday wear and tear, washing machines and dry cleaning.

A Lot Of Products. A Lot Of Locations.

HXD is versatile – it can be applied to a lot of products in a lot of locations. Along with high-visibility locations on bags, it’s particularly well-suited for both traditional and accent locations on wovens, baseball caps, softshell jackets, polos and journalbooks.

Freestanding And Mounting

Some logos present challenges, like small icons with tight spacing or think lettering. Our HXD designers assess those details, then create a solution. Minimal thickness and sufficient spacing are essential for a freestanding reproduction of small elements.

If a solution can’t be achieved by upsizing or subtle modification, we can mount the logo in one of three ways – contouring it, defining it or cresting it.

Dimensioning

The dimensioning process prepares your art for reproduction in HXD. Combining artistic design expertise and high-tech mechanical processes, there are three steps. Dimensioning is done by skilled designers who've been trained in the process, and there is an associated fee.
