Leather patches

are far less common than the other options we have like embroidered patches or PVC patches, but they have a classic appeal and signature look that can’t be recreated in any other form. If you and your team are looking for something that’s exclusive, that stands out from the crowd, and that has a storied history in artisanship, then our synthetic leather patches are perfect for you.


Leather Patches

A Different Kind of Patch

Custom leather patches gained fame during WWII along with the G-1 and A-2 aviation jackets worn by Air Force Pilots and Naval Aviators. Today, leather patches are sewn onto hats, backpacks, jeans and jackets of all shapes and sizes. While the designs may be different, they still have that same classic aesthetic of the hand made leather patches worn by America’s old school fighter pilots.

Custom Patch Customer Reviews

Signature patches was easy to work with


Signature patches was easy to work with and were helpful in assisting with the proof process and color selection. They also had the best pricing for PVC patches that I've found to date. I'm very happy with the final product and will definitely be using them in the future!

Fantastic patches and support


Fantastic patches and support, couldn't be happier! The PVC quality is great and will hold up well. My squadron is in Japan and they securely shipped everything very expeditiously. As they say in the Navy, Bravo Zulu!

From Local Artisans to Today’s Custom Patch Makers

During WWII, America’s military aviators started looking for ways to decorate their flight jackets as a way to distinguish themselves from other teams and other pilots. They found local artisans around the area they were stationed and bought handmade leather patches with custom designs imprinted on them. The handmade designs were chosen to celebrate everything a team of pilots had achieved together.

While the process for making these types of leather patches has changed over the years, our team is committed to capturing that same handmade quality and classic aesthetic with every leather patch we make. And these days, the sleeves of G-1 and A-2 jackets aren’t the only places you’ll find a leather patch.


All kinds of different organizations like clubs, charities and even schools have their own custom patches, and supporters fix them to things like backpacks, hats, jeans and, of course, jackets. We can even make leather patches with small cutouts for keychain attachments for anyone not interested in affixing their patch permanently to one surface.

If you’re considering creating a set of custom leather patches for hats, it’s important to remember that size and placement will play a huge role in how well the patches stick. Most hats have a decent amount of room to include a custom patch either on the side or front, but over-large patches may be difficult to secure in place if they can’t lie flat against the fabric.

Custom leather patches for jackets, on the other hand, allow for all kinds of different shapes and sizes. While chenille patches are the most common choice for letterman jackets, we’ve designed synthetic leather patches with school crests that shake up the everyday formula. And, while PVC patches are the most popular type of patch in military circles, our team sometimes has the opportunity to help soldiers craft a leather patch design reminiscent of the aviation patches of old.


Making a Custom Synthetic Leather Patch Stick

When it comes to attaching a leather patch to any type of surface, it’s important to consider what backing option will work best. Most of the leather patches we help design come with no backing at all. This is because many of our customers prefer to either glue or sew their patches in place by hand. But we offer hook and loop backing for our leather patches. Some jackets and military uniforms come with the softer loop portion of the attachment already sewn onto the sleeves or chest. In these cases, our hook and loop patches are ready to attach right out of the box.

The most popular attachment option we offer is iron on backing. While iron on leather patches only take a few minutes to secure in place with the right tools at hand, you need to be extra careful not to damage the leather design with the hot iron. However, attaching a leather patch to any type of material is easy once you take a look at our instructions on attaching your patch.
