Custom Patch Designs: What’s the Process?

There are approximately 17,985 U.S. police agencies operating in the U.S. including Federal Law Enforcement agencies, State Police/Highway Patrol agencies, County Sheriff’s Offices, and City Police Departments. Agency uniforms that feature custom police velcro patches have been noted for making their agency look as official as the officers are.

Whether you’re looking for custom police velcro patches for your station or for a charity event, a professional and experienced patch creator is what you need. But what exactly is the process for creating custom law enforcement patches? Here’s what you can expect when you put in an order for custom police velcro patches:

  1. Design. To get started with your custom patches, you first need to consider your design options. Design options include the colors that will go into your custom patch, the size of your custom patch, and finally the shape. There are a wide variety of twill colors and thread colors you can use to really customize your patches.
  2. Sketch. Once you have the general idea of the design for your custom patches, the next step is to make a sketch. Your sketch doesn’t need to be anything fancy, but it will help to give your patch creator a better idea of the design you’re looking for.
  3. Artwork. After reviewing your sketch, your patch creator will translate your sketched design into a digital format so you can get a better idea of what the finished product will look like.
  4. Quote. If you’re happy with the digital rendering of your sketch and the design choices you’ve made including colors, size, and patch shape, your patch creator will provide you with a quote and will begin moving forward on the rest of your custom patch.
  5. Quality assurance. At this point in the process, you’ll get to see the final product of your custom patch design. This is the time when you give your custom patch a final inspection and quality check to ensure everything about your custom patch is to your liking. If you’re completely satisfied with your custom patch, the rest of the custom patches can be made.
  6. Shipping. After your custom patches have been created, they’ll be swiftly and efficiently sent to you and your agency.
