Tips for Designing Your Own Custom Patch
One of the great things about using embroidered patches for identification purposes is the fact that modern technology makes it possible for you to use your very own design. Companies like The Cheap Place are able to take your digital image and transform it into a set of customized embroidered patches perfect for your club, civic organization, sports team, youth group, or whatever else you have in mind. The only customer requirements are that digital images not infringe on any copyrights or trademarks, and that a minimum number of pieces are ordered.
If you think you might be interested in designing your own custom embroidered patch, here are some important tips to remember:
- Keep It Simple – While it’s entirely possible to use dozens of different colors and intricate shapes, the more complicated your design the more costly it is to produce. Try to keep your patches as simple as possible without looking like an elementary school art project. You can see what we mean by browsing some of the patches on The Cheap Place website.
- Choose Appropriate Color Schemes – Marketers know that properly matched color schemes are a great way to catch the eye of potential customer. The same holds true when designing patches for your club. Do some online research about color matching to find out what colors work well together.
- Present an Image – Your custom patch should do one of two things: visually express who or what your group is, or say something about your mission. If you can combine the two in a simple design, that’s even better. Just remember that first impressions are very important. Whatever your patch says about you is the reputation you’ll have long before others actually meet you and your members.
