Service patches are an important part of the uniform for many people. An American flag or other symbol indicates who they serve or what their role is. Our service patches are made to be attached to a sleeve, a jacket, or other part of your uniform — or anyone can wear them on their hat, backpack, coat, or other apparel. Professionally embroidered with strong, durable thread, our patches look great no matter where you wear them! Most of these patches have an option for iron-on or sew-on backing, so you can choose the best method of attaching them, but this does vary by product.
Who Can Wear Service Patches?
While some service patches may be designed for specific uses, anyone can wear a service patch. We carry right arm American flag patches, for example, which look like backwards U.S. flags. These patches are specifically made to be worn on the right sleeve of a uniform or jacket. The design allows the flag to look like it's moving in the breeze as the wearer walks forward and is the correct way to wear a flag patch on military uniforms and civilian clothing.
Of course, you'll find more than just flag patches in our selection! These patches make a great gift for emergency responders, nurses and other medical professionals, and members of patriotic organizations, among others. Service patches also make great giveaways or attendance gifts at conferences, parades, and other events. Our patches can be ordered in bulk, and the more you buy, the more you save!
How Do I Wear Service Patches?
Service patches can be worn wherever you'd like: on a jacket, hat, or backpack or another bag. If you're wearing your patch on a uniform, check with your employer or organization on the correct place to wear it. Patches are often worn on the left side of the chest, but they may be attached to a sleeve or other location. When you're attaching your service patch, consider the material that you're putting it on and how the item will be used to determine if iron-on or sew-on is the best method. Sewing on a patch can be a little more challenging and isn't possible on all materials, but it is strong and long-lasting. Iron-on patches are easier to attach and form a strong bond but aren't a good option if the item they are attached to will be worn or laundered frequently.
