Creating Biker Patches

The experts at American Patch can create almost any design, so allow your creativity to flow. Check out our Gallery to kick start your imagination.
Embroidered biker patches are the most popular. They’re made of multiple colored threads sewn into a substrate fabric. We can also create dye sublimation patches that deposit ink on a patch for a striking image that looks similar to a photograph. Many motorcycle club patches use a combination of the two, using ink and threads to create an eye-catching look.
The size of your patch is very important. For example, if you are creating a small patch to wear on the shoulder, you will want to keep the design simple, with fewer colors. Patches worn on the back of a jacket or vest should be larger, and the design can be more ornate. You will also need to know the type of backing you want.
Typically, men’s motorcycle patches are 12 inches while women’s are 9 inches. After you have created your design, add the height and the width of your patch together and then divide it by two.
