Embroidered patch with Burbank Police logo - prop for television show

Custom Patches

We offer two methods of custom patch creation:

Quick Turnaround Patches

If you have small order, or need quick turnaround, we can use our quick turn around production method. The outside of the patch is a satin stitch, the interior is twill with embroidery.

We can create virtually any shape, and we can even create hybrid patches that are a blend of image transfer and embroidery – if your artwork is photographic sometimes hybrids are the best option.

Standard turnaround is 1-2 weeks, depending on the project. Rush service is available, just ask for details.

Production patches

For patches with a fully merrowed edge (or hot knifed for some complex shapes) for durability, we can offer production patches.

For embroidery- only patches, the minimum is 50 pieces; for sublimation patches, the minimum is 100 pieces.

Standard turnaround is 4-5 weeks. Rush service as fast as two weeks is possible depending on production levels.

Pricing per-patch is much lower using this method.

Image Transfer Patch

Image Transfer Patches

We also offer image transfer patches. These are patches that combine some embroidery with the benefits of a full-color imprint. As with full embroidery patches, we have two methods for these: quick turnaround and overseas production.

Quick Turnaround image patches have a satin stitch border around a white twill patch in whatever custom shape you desire. There is no minimum order on these. The interior of the patch starts out as white twill, but we apply a full-color image transfer to this to create a full-color result like this (see image).

Overseas Production Image Transfer Patches

This type of production for patches uses a combination of embroidery and image on the interior for a more rich, detailed look.

Production time is 4 weeks. Rush service of approximately 2 weeks is possible in some cases.

Minimum order 100.
