What Types of Borders Do You Offer for Custom Patches?

Posted by Signature Patches | January 6, 2012 at 10:01am | Topic: Custom Patches

When it comes to custom patches, there are a number of different options you can choose from to help them appear the way you want them to look. One of the most overlooked features that we offer is custom borders. Not only are they attractive, they add to the durability of the patches that you order.

Here are the different styles of borders that we offer and the types of patches that they represent:

  • Merrow borders are traditional round sewed borders. Designs that are round use this type of border.

  • Hot Cut border are cut-to-shape border following the design. If your patch is any other shape than round or is badge shaped, a hot cut border is required.


Every patch MUST have a Merrow or Hot Cut border because it seals the patch and makes it a finished product. This helps keep your patches looking exceptional years later and after being washed time and time again. You can see examples of the different styles of borders offered by visiting Signature Patches at http://www.signaturepatches.com/patchoptions.htm/ .

We offer a variety of different patches for your everyday needs. These will differ because not everyone owns a security company or heads a Boy or Girl Scout troop. You may be in charge of wardrobing employees at a theme park or amusement park and require that your patches be removed from garments before laundering. If that is the case, a Velcro backing or a Tuxedo clip or Safety Pin clip will be ideal. This allows the patch to be removed before a shirt is washed and dried.
