Police Patches with Merrow Border
In the effort to serve you with the highest quality of custom police patches, we also offer the option for merrowed borders. This is a wonderful option for custom police patches that are shaped in circles, triangles, rectangles or square as it will give the patch a finished and polished look. This border is about 1/8″ wide that overlocks the patch edge, it also prevents unwanted frayed edges. Merrowed border will give your custom polices patches durability.
Backing and Attachment Options
Since most police uniforms are made out of non-cotton material which is more delicate than cotton, we do not use iron backing for these kinds of materials since the heat when applying it could damage the attire. We use the sew-on backing method which involves the use of sewing machine to permanently sew the patch on to the cloth, adhesive backing or Velcro backing since these are the best backing options for polyester, nylon and spandex. These backings will adhere to your uniform perfectly. However, the choice of the backing option is left for you to choose while ordering for the embroidered patches.
Why Police Patches are So Important to the Uniform
Most people inherently understand the various reasons why police officers wear uniforms.
Uniforms set officers apart and make them more noticeable, which can both deter would-be criminals and let people in need of help know where to turn. The name patches help identifies an officer name. They also give the officers themselves a sense of comradely and togetherness, engenders respect, and makes officers seem professional. The Military patches do the job on the military uniforms.
How Custom Police Patches Fit In
Since every area has its own set of law enforcement patches, their purpose and history vary. Many have been around for generations, with a number going through redesigns periodically.
However, custom police patches tend to serve two purposes on police uniforms:
- These patches help to identify officers by denoting rank, department, unit, any special groups they are a part of, or where they are based.
- They also display local and civic pride by depicting something important to the community they serve.
Custom Reflective Police Patches
This type of custom law enforcement patches are achieved by using a reflective fabric or material like scotchlite in the design. This enables the patch to glow in the dark by reflecting back any light thrown at it. The same backing methods for applying the other custom law enforcement patches apply on the reflective patches.
Our major buyers for these reflective patches, custom police patches as well as other custom law enforcement patches the Government approved uniform suppliers who use these emblems on the uniforms they supply to the police. Police departments and individual police officers also purchase custom police patches directly from us especially when they need it customized and also, individuals who would love to show their support for the police.

We understand that custom police patches and most custom law enforcement patches need to be firm, strong and durable. So we’ve put together a team of experienced quality control officers who goes through every single patch produced to make sure that it attains the standard needed.
Here are some of the steps taken by this team of QCs made up of extensively experienced embroiderers in the custom embroidery industry.
- They confirm the size of the finished patches by taking measurements with a ruler.
- They confirm all THE text/letters in a logo matching it with its original logo artwork.
- They check for puckering issues, using thread trimming and fabric stabilizer.
- They confirm that the backing (Velcro/Iron on) option is correctly applied with reference to the instructions.
- They confirm that the border type (Hot-Cut/Merrow), and color is correct with the instructions.
- They confirm the number of finished patches carefully with the additional 3-5%.
- They perform checks for 100% quality of the patches making sure none has any defect.
- They confirm the packaging is nice and clean with small packets using the bobbin thread. Note that our packaging does not involve rubber bands since it can easily melt thereby destroying some of the packaged patches.
- All steps above are repeated twice for every other marking the steps with a printed checklist.
Our experienced embroiderers look at design details, outlines, fill areas, and the back side of the custom patches to ensure the bobbin thread settings. They check the Velcro backing if an order is for police Velcro patches or other Velcro patches. They also check the iron on backing is properly applied if an order is for iron on patches.
