Custom Patches come in all shapes and sizes. The size you pick when ordering a custom emblem is really a personal preference. However , there are common sizes used for particular patches  , such as fire patches , police patches , girl scout patches , etc. I am going to go over the standard sizes for these types of custom embroidered patches , please keep in mind that these are merely suggestions.  A custom patch can be any size you want!

The recommendations above were determined from years of creating these types of custom patches. We observed that customers that ordered these specific patches , requested the sizes you see above. That being said , when choosing a size for your custom embroidered emblem ,  you need to make sure that the size you choose compliments your design. If your design is elaborate and has a lot of details you need to choose a bigger patch size. If you were to choose a small patch size for such an intricate design it would not do that patch any justice.

To determine the custom patch size that you wish to use , add the length of the emblem and the width of the emblem and divide by 2. The number that you get from dividing the two is the custom embroidered patch size.

Example:
4″ width + 8″ height = 12
12 divided by 2 = 6
Your patch size is 6

Ultimately the custom patch size depends on your design and concept and it also depends on where the patch will be placed. The size of your custom insignia is completely your choice. If you are unsure of what patch size to use , our creative specialist are very knowledgeable and can assist you!
