Choose a font above

We recommend letters be at least 1/4" (14pts) in height for best results. Thick, bold, block fonts work best for the embroidery process. If desired, please choose from the fonts below. You can also supply your own or let our art department choose a font that best suits your design.

Choose your backing above

  • NO BACKING: allows you to sew your patch onto any article of clothing or accessory
  • PLASTIC: free upon request
  • IRON-ON: allows you to iron on your design with a home iron
  • PEEL & STICK: for a special event, attach your patch to clothing immediately, without ironing
  • VELCRO: replace or rotate your patch easily
Merrowed Border
Diecut Border

Choose your border type

Merrowed is the most common type of border, and is wrapped around the entire patch. Merrowed borders are always 1/8" thick, regardless of overall patch size.

Diecut borders are cut to the shape of the patch, and are most commonly reserved for more complex shapes, although any patch can technically have a diecut border.
