From Ordinary to Extraordinary: Transforming Your Apparel with Emblem Patches

NYPD Auxiliary Police officers in Central Park, NYC

A customized patch is a great way to accessorize any wardrobe. You can express your personality or show an affiliation to an organization. Emblem patches usually have a design or logo and are attached by sewing or iron-on adhesive. Here are a few ways they can take your department’s apparel from plain to extraordinary!

Add Flair

Even the most beautiful jacket or shirt may need a little extra kick to take it up a notch. A great example is a denim jacket. Denim jackets are timeless clothing items that you can make really special with the right patches. Choose patches that represent your favorite sports, music, animals, or anything you like. Mix and match different emblems on the same jacket to create an interesting design.

Show Support or Affiliation

According to The San Jose Police Department, their badge symbolizes the seven core values of the Department: Integrity, Service, Courage, Innovation, Respect, Excellence, and Diversity. You can create an emblem that represents similar values that belong to an organization. For example, you can wear the emblem of a cause that you support, such as PETA, Earth Day, or local events. Place them on your bag, hat, jacket, or anywhere you wish to showcase pride in your organization.

Add Color

It’s okay to create a customized patch to show off specific colors. For example, maybe your favorite color is purple or red, and you want to add those colors to a white or dark piece of apparel. Or maybe you want a rainbow coalition of emblems to decorate your jacket or bag with. With the right array of colorful patches, you can create a dynamic look on any piece of clothing. Do you have a vintage black leather jacket that you don’t know what to do with? See what some emblems can do to make it look even cooler.
