10 Cool Embroidered Patches

There’s no patch more iconic than the embroidered patch. These wildly popular patches come in all shapes and sizes. Here are our favorite designs! 

Embroidered patches are the most common and most popular custom patches we sell here at The/Studio. We offer seven different patch styles, including woven patches, printed patches, PVC patches, chenille patches, leather patches, and bullion patches, but our embroidered patches still beat ‘em all out for most sales every month! 

We’ve created embroidered patches for fashion brands, outdoor apparel brands, airsoft and paintball teams, motorcycle clubs, military units, influencers, well-known corporations/companies, and more. If they wear patches, chances are we’ve created patches for an organization, club, team, or brand like them in the past. Simply put, we’ve hit the gamut when it comes to embroidered patches. 

Embroidered patches are most commonly made of twill and thread (fabric backing and textured threading), with the help of an embroidery machine and advanced technology. These thick patches look and feel high-quality and can support designs with 9+ colors. When you think of a “classic” patch, you’re thinking of embroidered patches.

Inspiration for Your First (or Next) Embroidered Patch

We all need some inspiration now and then. Even the best artists, designers, and creators take inspiration from those that came before them! 

Here at The/Studio, we’ve made thousands of embroidered patches. We’ve seen just about everything under the sun when it comes to custom patches. We have a TON of favorite patches, so it’s pretty hard to narrow down a top 10, but after a bit of back and forth, we finally did it. Here are 10 of our favorite embroidered patches.

Hopefully, these designs will give you some inspiration for your next custom embroidered patch order!
