Embroidery Patches Made Easy

Easily attached to a cap, backpack, or jacket, custom embroidery patches are a creative way to showcase your interests while also humbly highlighting your embroidery talents. Since 1958 our family has created over 10 million patches for companies like Disney, the Boy Scouts, the NBA, and more.

How to Make Custom Embroidery Patches

Embroidery Patch Design Files

Clean, crisp merrowed™ edges are the trademark of professional-looking embroidery patches. Traditionally, these edges are created using a specialized patch machine which most embroiderers don’t own.

So, to ensure you get the best results possible using only your embroidery machine, John Deer created some specially digitized embroidery design files that replicate the beautiful classic edges patches are famous for.

These expertly digitized embroidery designs allow you to insert your designs or lettering into the patch outlines, and at the press of a button, easily create custom patches with any materials of your choice!

Ready-Made Embroidery Patches

Our “Ready-Made Patches” are designed to save you time & give you the most professional results possible. These Patches are completely ready to be embroidered. Manufactured with commercial specifications including true Merrowed™ Borders, these are the real deal.

Simply insert your logo/lettering within our “perfect placement” embroidery files, hoop the patch (we’ll show you how with bite-sized video tutorials), and hit the start button.

Having a finished patch with a merrow border already completed instantly increases your profits and saves you a minimum of 3000 stitches of production time.
