are included as part of a uniform. We’ve created name badges, company badges with embroidered logos, and badge designs made for specialized teams. No matter who they are created for, whether it’s a fire department chemical waste disposal unit or a team of patrol officers, custom badge patches symbolize a specific type of training and expertise, as well as a sense of community among team members.More often than not, badge patches are included as part of a uniform.
Custom badge patches represent authority and belonging within a group. Whether you’re looking for EMS badges that convey safety’s arrival, or police and security uniform badge patches, we’ve got you covered. All badge patches from Signature Patches are custom designed and made to order, so convey your message of authority with style!
A police investigator flashing their badge before entering a building or questioning a witness is a common stereotype seen in film and television, but badges exist in many different forms other than just police badges. Fire departments, military units, and businesses and corporations have their own official badges for different team members.
Whether it’s a metal shield badge, a laminated ID badge or even a star-shaped sheriff badge patch worn on the shoulder of a deputy, badges symbolize a level of expertise and authority in a specific field. When it comes to creating a unique design for your team, picking colors, text and shape is only the beginning.
We offer several different types of patches, and, depending on what kind of design you need, certain options will help make your badge perfect for any job at hand. One of the biggest considerations is clarity. As a symbol of authority and identity, things like EMS badge patches and police badge patches need a high level of clarity to ensure the symbols and letters embossed on the design are visible even from a distance.
Choosing the right type of patch and the right attachment options will come down to functionality and to personal preference. If you’re not sure what kind of design will work best for your ideas, our experienced sales team is happy to help narrow things down.
Choosing the Right Badge Patch For the Job
For something like an EMS badge patch with large block letters or a firefighter badge patch with bold symbols like the Florian cross, a PVC design is an excellent option. Designs are available with 3D artwork, giving some PVC patches a level of depth and detail that’s unrivaled by any other patch. Using contrasting colors like black and white will help add emphasis to certain parts of the artwork, giving the design a vivid appearance.
Durability is another important aspect of any custom badge patch design. Being waterproof and resistant to cold makes PVC patches perfect for uniform patches and sports patches that will get muddied and grass stained out on the field, or worn out during long work days. You can rest easy knowing your PVC badges will last through multiple washes without fading or cracking.
With that being said, all of the patches we offer here at Signature Patches are made to the highest quality standards in the industry. For custom embroidered patches and woven badge designs, there’s no need to worry about thread fading or fraying. And just like PVC designs, custom embroidered and woven patches are available in custom shapes, making it easy to create badges shaped like shields, stars or even a caduceus for EMS teams.
Especially in the military, being able to quickly swap out one patch design for another is an important quality for any custom design. U.S. Army badges and patches, for example, are constantly changed as soldiers move to different units or locations during deployment and earn promotions.
A lot of uniforms for first responders and military personnel come with strips of soft fabric already in place on the shoulder or chest intended for the placement of custom uniform patches. In these cases, adding a hook and loop backing to your custom badge patches means they will be ready to secure in place right out of the box.
Sewing on badge patches will always provide the most permanent attachment, but hook and loop patches provide the best semi-permanent attachment, making it easy to swap out different designs on the fly. PVC, embroidered and woven patches are all available with a hook and loop backing, so if having the ability to quickly remove and secure patches in place is a must for your design, you’re still free to choose your favorite type of patch with a hook and loop backing.
