twill police patch


One of our most popular fabrications, twill patches are both cost-effective and versatile.

Embroidered elements stand out against the smooth twill background of these sturdy and washable patches, making it an excellent choice for uniformed officers patches.


Texture & Depth

Fully embroidered police patches are a great option for high-contrast designs, allowing the seal of the department or jurisdiction to stand out on the patch.

The entire background of the custom patch is embroidered with a fill stitch available in a range of rich color options.

Woven patches are the ideal choice when the patch design includes essential lettering smaller than 3/16″ or intricate yet crucial details.


Expertly crafted with thinner, interlacing threads and no connecting stitches, Hero’s Pride Woven Patches ensure every aspect of your logo or seal is captured in a cleaner, sharper patch.


Although they have a flatter and less shiny appearance, Woven Patches offer a highly detailed solution surpassing other methods.

Photo Realistic

The optimal choice if you require a custom police patch that includes details of the seal of your police department, sheriff’s office, or other law enforcement agency that are particularly intricate.

Special dyes bond to fabric molecules offering detailed patches that are near photographic quality.

PVC police and swat patch


These rubberized patches have a unique industrial and three dimensional look. While PVC patches have traditionally been the choice of SWAT teams, more and more police departments and sheriff’s offices are opting for PVC police patches on  officers’ uniforms.

For a bold patch that makes a statement and weathers the elements, we suggest a PVC fabrication.
