Calculate Your Patch Size for Accurate Pricing

Custom patches come in a variety of shapes and sizes, suitable for different applications like scout uniforms, military gear, biker jackets, or sports team apparel. To provide you with an accurate price, we base our quotes on the size of your patch.

Here’s a simple way to calculate the size:

  1. Measure the Length and Width of your desired patch.
  2. Add these two measurements together.
  3. Divide the total by 2.

This calculation gives us the average size of your patch, which is crucial for determining the price. Accurately measuring your patch ensures we can provide you with a precise and fair quote tailored to your specific needs.

How To Determine Your Patch Size

measuring a 2 inch by 4 inch patch

If the height of your patch is 2″ and the width of your patch is 4″, you would add 2 + 4, which equals 6. You then divide 6 by 2, which equals 3, The size the size of your 2″ x 4″ patch would be 3".

Your Patch Size:

Your patch size is determined by taking the height and width,
adding them together, and dividing by 2.

Example: 3W + 2H / 2 = 2.5" Patch
