An Introduction to Designing and Ordering Wholesale Chenille Letters
When you are ready to order wholesale chenille letters, or wholesale varsity letters as they are called in some parts of the country, there are a few things you want to know to make sure you get exactly what you want. As one of the leading manufacturers of wholesale chenille letters in the United States, Chenille Appeal has extensive experience in the business. We created this basic introduction to designing and ordering wholesale chenille letters to help you as a starting point to becoming one of our authorized dealers, especially if you sell wholesale varsity jackets.
No Minimum Orders on Wholesale Chenille Letters
One of the things that makes Chenille Appeal different is that our wholesale dealers can place orders for chenille letters with no minimum quantity.

The Options for Wholesale Chenille Letters
When you design your wholesale chenille letters, you have countless options, including having us match an existing style or design!
- Size: The size of your chenille letters is determined by where it will be placed on the varsity jacket, letter jacket, or letterman jacket, whether it is junior varsity or varsity, and regional preferences. A vast majority of the chenille letters we sell to our wholesale dealers are 6 inches.
- Felt Layers and Colors: You can choose between single felt, double felt, or even triple felt chenille letters. The felt is the number of layers of sturdy backing upon which the fuzzy chenille is stitched. Single felt chenille letters are more economical and less expensive, but double felt chenille letters have an awesome layered look, are generally sturdier, and have a much more professional look to them. We produce huge quantities of both types of chenille letters for our dealers each year.
- Inserts: You can add embroidered Swiss inserts or metal pins to your chenille letters to show the activities in which a student or athlete participates. For instance, you could have a track foot embroidered onto a chenille letter, or a track foot pin placed upon a chenille letter. These cost very little additionally and make a big difference in personalizing chenille letters for the end customer.
- Chenille Letter Font: We offer a huge range of font choices for your chenille letters including full block font, script font, plain block font, dimensional font, old English font, and much more. We can even match any type style samples you send us so the only limit is your imagination!
- Border Type: You can choose traditional chain borders (tight stitching) or fat, fuzzy borders (so-called “chenille” borders) for your chenille letters. This depends upon your region. Almost all dealers choose traditional chain borders for their chenille letters.
