Measure Your Patch
The maximum width and maximum height of your patch is needed in order to calculate a price.
Use the widest and tallest parts of your patch to determine these measurements. The examples below
illustrate how to measure the maximum width and maximum height for various patch shapes.
Determine Your Patch Size
Here’s an example: let’s use a patch that has a height of 2 inches and a width of 3 inches.
Step 1. Add the width and height together. In our example, 2 + 3 = 5.
Step 2. Divide the sum by two. So, 5 divided by 2 = 2.5.
Step 3. The result will be the size of your patch. In our example, our patch size is 2.5
You can find your patch size in the left hand column of the price tables.
We offer a variety of backings for your patches. The type of backing you choose is a personal preference
and depends on how you will apply the patches.
Plain backingThis option is used when patches will be sewn directly on to a material
(i.e. a jacket, bag, uniform, hat).
Heat seal/iron-on backingThis option is permanent and is used when the patches will
be ironed on to a material. Before ironing ensure your material can be pressed with a hot iron.
Velcro backingThis is often used on flight suits and other military-type uniforms.
Plastic backingA plastic backing is typically used on larger patches (over 6 inches)
and helps to prevent buckling. With this type of backing the patch will need to be sewn on.
Less than 100% embroidery
If the entire patch is not embroidered and there is background material showing, choose this option.
In this example, the background is a red twill material. The only embroidery on the patch is the white
lettering and bird shape.
If the entire patch is embroidered, as in the example below, and there is no background twill material
showing, choose the 100% embroidery option.
