Embroidered patches can be attached to nearly any fabric by sewing, ironing, or even using a simple adhesive. Embroidered patches are a simple and attractive addition to almost any piece of clothing—but don’t stop there! Below are ten unique uses for embroidered patches.
#1: Work uniforms
A traditional use of embroidered patches is on uniforms such as police, fire fighters, or security workers. But really, any workplace can use embroidered patches to display a company logo or employee names on uniforms.
#2: Team spirit
Members of a sports team or club can use embroidered patches on their uniforms, bags or other gear to remind their competitors who they are up against!
#3: Where in the world have you been?
World travelers will appreciate building up a collection of embroidered patches from all their travel destinations. Attaching them to a backpack or jacket can be a great conversation starter about your trips!
#4: Keep it in the family
Planning a family reunion? Instead of the traditional t-shirts or hats, consider getting embroidered patches as a souvenir for all your relatives—or, if your family is big enough, using embroidered patches as nametags!
#5: Add personal flair
An embroidered patch that depicts a personal interest, hobby, or passion is a simple way to turn a basic bag or piece of clothing into something that is uniquely yours and lets the world know who you are.
#6: Show off your accomplishments
Kids will be proud to have embroidered patches announcing to the world that they are a sports star, on the honor roll, or the winner of a school or community award. For adults, think about “employee of the month” patches for your star workers.

Students can show off their loyalty to their college or school by displaying an attractive embroidered patch in the school colors. These can also be a simple school fundraiser.

Traveling somewhere new? Embroidered patches make great gifts: attractive, useful, and easy to pack for your loved ones back home.
