Name patches are most commonly used on uniforms including those for our military, emergency medical technicians, automotive, law enforcement, sports teams, and the healthcare industry. In most cases it is not advisable to embroider directly on leather, so motorcycle clubs and organizations also have a special need for custom patches. All of our patches are custom made to your unique specifications. You will be able to choose your thread, border, and background colors, as well as the shape, size, and font of your unique custom patch. We have over three hundred different threads to choose from including metallic, polyester, and fluorescent colors. Most custom patches use either a block or brush script font, although we can digitize custom fonts when needed. Custom name patches can be ordered with an iron on, plastic, adhesive, or Velcro backing. Most of our name patches are made standard with an iron on backing. The most common shapes are oval or rectangular, but we have done them in many other shapes and sizes. Rectangular patches can be done with squared or rounded corners. We can manufacture them in custom shapes with a laser cut border, but we prefer to use a merrowed border to finish the edge of our custom made name patches. Most of our name patches are done with a twill material background. This is a smooth colorfast polyester fabric that is available in over seventy different colors. Name patches can also be ordered with a one hundred percent embroidery filled background. Another reason to use name patches is that they are generally more affordable than direct embroidery. Unlike direct embroidery, they can also be removed and or replaced as needed. Try our custom patches and let us be your one stop location for all your custom embroidery and embroidered patch needs.
