Custom Design Ordering


I help with designs and quality as a hobby.  I am glad to help you with your patch, just let me know what you want from my contact page.

Patches are priced by size categories.  The prices are determined by (height + width)/2 and rounded to the nearest ½".  A patch can have up to 9 colors without an increase in costs.  Additional colors are 4 per color per patch.  Buttons loops are an extra 5 per patch.

Common sizes categories for patches are 3" and 2½".  3-digit unit numbers are normally 3" wide by between 1¾" to 2¼" tall and are therefore priced in the 2½" category.  The prices for those sized patches with up to 9 colors fully embroidered are:

Size Category Min. Order Unit Price Total Price
3" 50 $ 2.84 $ 145 + shipping
3" 63 $ 2.84 $ 178.92 + shipping
3" 100 $ 1.79 $ 179 + shipping
3" 200 $ 1.27 $ 254 + shipping

Size Category Min. Order Unit Price Total Price
2½" 50 $ 2.66 $ 133 + shipping
2½" 59 $ 2.66 $ 156.94 + shipping
2½" 100 $ 1.57 $ 157 + shipping
2½" 200 $ 1.06 $ 212 + shipping
    Note that the cost of 60+ patches is the same as 100 patches.  Since unit number patches are always good, it is more economical to get at least 100 patches.

Standard Ordering Information:

  • I ask for half down to begin and the balance plus shipping when the patches are ready.  Shipping is the cost priority mail rounded up to the next whole dollar.  If multiple patches are ordered, shipping is combined.

  • Insurance is optional.  The cost is what the post office charges and is shown of the order form.  If you do not ask for insurance, I will insure it for $50 which is free.  If you do insure your order, I will round up to the next full hundred dollars; for example if you order was for $140, I would insure it for $200 which is the same cost.

  • When I receive the deposit:  I work up a drawing; get your approval; and put the patch into production.

  • I do a great deal of scouting so getting things done quickly is not something I can always help with.  In any case, knowing when you need the patches is important to me.

  • Linked is a PDF order form for your convenience with my address.  You can fill in the form online and print it.  If you want to call, my Oregon number is (909) 263-2063.

  • My objective is to provide quality patches, good service and receive a thank you when you receive your patches because I do the patch thing as a hobby.

This is not an official site of the Boy Scouts of America.  I use some of the profits to pay for the scouting web sites that I maintain for the benefit of the scouting community.  However, I give most of the profits to international scouting because I am very involved in international scouting.
