To keep your team safe in the workplace, you need to educate your staff and encourage them to follow safe practices on the job. Cutting corners to save a few minutes can be tempting for some, but rewarding the team members who do things the right way, setting the example, is a great way to motivate your team to do things the safest way possible. This is where custom safety patches come into play.
Here at Signature Patches, we make the process of customizing and ordering custom patches as quick and easy as possible. We’ll create a custom design for you, and once the patches are produced, we’ll have them shipped to you for free via priority air shipping.
It takes a different kind of team to operate a helicopter ambulance. The men and women that responders will be helping are often in the most critical situations. The patches secured to their uniforms are a source of pride and a testament to their abilities.
Commemorative patches are designed to honor the hard work of a team and celebrate their achievements. This EMS patch was created for the people who responded to hurricane Mathew.

These patches were custom made for people working at the University Medical Center in Hackensack, NJ. Using school colors is a great way to make a design more memorable and meaningful to the people working on campus.
Emergency responders need to be prepared for more than just medical emergencies. There are also fires, chemical disasters and all kinds of other dangerous situations. The emblems at the center of this design honor the responsibilities of the Global Emergency Preparedness Division at AIG.
When it comes to EMS patches, one of the most common design elements we see is the Caduceus. It's a familiar symbol for anyone working as a first responder and a comforting image to those in need.
East Coast Ambulance & Wheelchair Service is a private transportation company. Their mission is to provide the best customer care for patients being discharged from the hospital, going to visit the doctor and even going to social events. For immediate emergencies, traditional ambulances are still your best option.
The bright white and red thread used to create this EMS patch make the design visible even from a distance. Uniform patches need to be legible, so people know how to differentiate members of separate teams and know their capabilities at a glance.
However, when you design a custom safety patch, choosing the type of patch is only the beginning. To make a truly successful safety award patch program, you need to create a meaningful design that your team can wear with pride. Here’s how it’s done:
Custom Safety Patches and Safety Award Programs
We make a lot of custom safety patches for law enforcement and firefighters around the nation. Depending on the type of safety award program, the safety patches are designed with different things in mind.
For example, we make a lot of safety officer patches for the teams in charge of making sure that a work environment is safe for the entire staff. These are official uniform patches that need to convey authority.
Including highly legible text and emblems is key to making a uniform patch stand out. So, we recommend classic embroidered patches with bold text and relatively simple artwork. Custom embroidered patches can have a merrowed border or a hot cut border if the patches are a custom shape like a shield or star, and we can include bright thread colors to help define the artwork.
Whether you choose a round safety officer patch or a custom shaped safety officer patch, remember that the goal is to make an authoritative design using recognizable logos and bold text.
Other times, safety patches are designed to educate and raise the awareness of your team or members of the community. In these cases, there is usually more room to get creative with the safety patch design, since they will not be used in such a formal way.
We can create police, sheriff and firefighter safety patches shaped like shields, stars and even fire trucks. If you need safety patches for a school or business, including a mascot is always a fun way to make the patches memorable and meaningful. If you want to raise awareness about safety issues using a safety award patch program, it helps to have memorable patches that are fun and engaging.
Safety Officer Patches
Some of the most important types of safety patches that we make are fire dept safety officer patches. These are worn by the safety officers who manage the risks that firefighters take during an emergency. Careers in emergency response and law enforcement are inherently dangerous, but that only makes the need for safety officers more important.
We design embroidered safety officer patches for men and women working in the corporate sector as well as public service. A lot of the fire dept safety officer patches we help design are shaped like the Florian cross, or they have a badge shape. However, the design is up to you, so let us know what type of artwork will work best.
If you have specific public safety patch emblems in mind for your order, just let us know when you fill out a free quote form. We can design something from scratch or use the design you have prepared to craft a set of high-quality safety patches for you.
Attachment Options, Pricing and Shipping
One of the most popular backing options we offer for any type of patch is a hook and loop backing. Hook and loop patches are easy to secure and remove from a bag, hat or article of clothing.
The soft loop portion of the hook and loop connection needs to be sewn to the surface where you want the patches to reside unless your jacket or uniform already has the loop fabric in place.
Another popular option is an iron on backing. Attaching an iron on patch to an article of clothing is quick and easy, but they cannot be removed and replaced like a hook and look patch. If you’re not sure which attachment option is best for your safety patches, check out our guide to attaching your patches.
As for custom patch pricing, all orders are based on unit price. The unit price of patches, or coast per patch, is determined by the size of your patch and the number of patches you order. Check out our pricing page for a detailed breakdown of patch prices.
Depending on the custom options you order for your design, the price of your patches will vary from what you see on the pricing page. The best way to get an accurate quote is to reach out to our sales team. We offer honest and upfront pricing, and provide free pricing quotes, free artwork and revision, and free priority shipping to the continental United States.
