How To Make Custom Patches
So, you have an idea for your new custom patches, you may even have a direction for your design, and now you’re ready to turn that idea into a patch. What do you do next?
It's simple! Just click the "Free Quote" button anywhere on the site, and our art team will get right to work crafting an original design from your ideas, and you'll have your first free proof ready and in your inbox within 48 hours.
When we create patches, our goal is to create a design that best represents your project. For this reason, we offer unlimited revisions until you are completely satisfied with the design, materials, size, and colors.
Once a digital proof is made, we will send you the proof and quote via email. Feel free to respond with any design changes you'd like to see. Once you approve your design and a payment is made, patch production begins.
Your design is digitized and sent to our die cutting machine. A roll of stabilizer material, such as twill, is used as the base. Twills have a diagonal weave that produces a heavy hold and doesn't fray. Next, our machines begin sewing the design onto the twill, one color at a time. Meaning the machine will sew one color thread, and once finished, the machine starts over and starts sewing the next color. For 100% embroidered patches, the colors are added until the whole twill is covered and no mesh is shown.
Finally, a patch edge is added to keep the edges from fraying. A merrow border is either sewn around the entire edge of your patch and wraps around the back. If you choose a hot cut border, a heated gun/scissors cuts out the patches from the roll. The final step is adhering your choice of attachment backing to your patch.

Does iron on backing help patches stay in place?
Iron On backing is durable. It’s meant to last. It adheres to most fabrics and can handle most washing machines and dryers (50-70 wash and dry). We can send you more specific Iron On instructions per your request.
How many colors can my patch have?
We offer up to 7 thread colors for FREE with every patch order. Additional colors are only 10 cents extra per color. This allows you to have the exact patch you want! We don’t place a restriction on the total number of colors featured on your patch.
How do I measure my patch design so I can calculate the size and cost of my patch?
To get the size of your patch, you need to follow a simple calculation of (Height + Width) / 2. Add together the largest height and the largest width of your patch and divide that number by two. Simple as that!
