Custom Patches - The Order Process

Below is a typical order process for custom patches through DKM Patches:

Step One: Develop Your Idea

Every concept begins with an idea. Are you marketing a camp or specific program? Are you recognizing volunteers? Are you creating a fund raiser for resale? Knowing how you plan to use the patch will help us create a unique design.

Step Two: Request a Free Quote

Pull together images from your program (logos, camp totems, mascots, photos, etc.) Create a sketch of how you think the patch should display the images. Do not worry about being an artist. Our design team can clean up your ideas and adjust them so they may be manufactured on today’s high speed equipment.

Request a free quote by using the 'Request a Free Quote' form, located on the right side of this web page. In the meantime, send your concept to DKM Patches: web@dkmembroidery.com. Mark all correspondence “Order to be filled” or “Please Quote”. Upon arrival, we will contact you with a firm cost.

Step Three: Finalize Artwork

Assuming that the quote is within your budget, artwork will be created and submitted to you for approval. You may change or add to the finished concept, and we will also give you our professional advice to ensure your final patch will look amazing.

Step Four: Receive Your Order

After artwork has been approved, we will manufacture the patches and have them to you in just two weeks!
