Whether you are an artist, designer, or an event organizer looking to create custom patches for an upcoming event, we've got you covered. Custom patches are used for many different reasons, great for businesses, brands, and organizations of all sorts. 

One of the many great uses for custom patches is for merchandise. Patches have made a strong comeback, and you can create unique designs that can be attached to nearly any fabric. If you want to get into the patch trend, we have you covered. Our experienced team has worked with brands worldwide to create unique patch designs. 

Today we examine a few ways you can use patches to raise funds for your business, brand, or organization. If you are thinking of using custom patches for fundraising, there are plenty of ways they can be used. Let's take a look at some of the most common patch designs. 

Charity patches are a fantastic way to raise money for a cause. We have had many requests from charities for custom patches made for fans, supporters, and those who donate to the cause. Charity patches are seen with the charity's logo, a mascot, or a special date of an important fundraising event. They are eye-catching and appealing, holding meaning and value to those who support the cause. Custom patches are a great addition to any charity store, with the bonus of proceeds going to a special cause. 

Embroidered patches are also great fundraisers for school teams and clubs. Schools, colleges, and other institutions use them to show off school pride, celebrating everything from school houses, end-of-the-year accomplishments, and school teams. These patches look their best when adorned with school colors and logos. Not only great for students, but custom patches are also perfect gifts for friends and family of students and alumni. 

One of the most traditional uses for embroidered patches is on work uniforms. Emergency services, security services, and other companies take advantage of custom patches as a marketing tool. They are excellent for displaying company logos, employee names, and even ranks. However, they can also be sold as merchandise. Most uniform patches feature details and information that pertain to the business, acting as miniature billboards for the company or organization. 

Travel groups have even adopted patches. Custom patches are a great way to show the places you've visited and more. Explorers often build a collection of patches to showcase all of their destinations. These patches are great for travel businesses or businesses located in travel hot spots. Custom travel patches feature detailed imagery and text relating to the adventure, looking exceptional attached to a travel backpack or other bag. 

Bands use patches as merchandise, supplying something meaningful and unique to their fans. Custom band patches depict band logos, album covers, or new artwork, giving fans a bold way to stand out. Perfect for jackets, vests, bags, and more, custom band patches can even come in limited-edition designs, adding to their allure through exclusivity. 

If you are an artist or a designer looking for new ways to show off your work, create a custom embroidered patch. These patches are great for fans and are hot commodities on platforms such as Esty. Many customers are looking for ways to spruce up their old jackets, bags, and other garments. A standout patch is just what they are looking for.
