Does anybody here actually produce real embroidery/patches for companies?

yes

Is there any big money to be made in that industry?

Not really ^_^ Of course it depends on what area.

In industrial embroidery, outsourcing makes it hard to compete.

Commercial embroidery deals with smaller quantities, i.e uniforms, and requires a short turnaroud time which makes it impossible to outsource.

I assume a well equiped local shop could make good money in a mid-size city. I even know people who earn extra money running a single-head machine in their garage .

What would you say is the average cost per patch?

If screenprinting depends on the number of colors, embroidery pricing is based on surface. After you pay for digitizing, what Patchez does, the main cost will be the quantity of thread you use, and the time you take (both man and machine) to sew the design. When sewing patches you don't have all the garment placement and adjustment to do so you save a lot of time. Again, it all depends on volume and quantity of thread, but I'd say the designs from this topic, 3"x3"... hmmm .... maybe less than a dollar.
