Why use patches?
We've been asked many times why it's important to use patches. Does it make a difference? It absolutely does. Identity is important to the individual wearing the uniform, as well as the company it represents. A patch with a custom logo tells the world who you are, and is essential from a marketing and branding standpoint. A person wearing a uniform with no patches to identify him- or herself is no different from a person wearing regular clothing.
Quickuniforms can produce a patch to your exact specifications. If you don't have a logo, our art department can have one designed for you. Give us a call (1.818.908.2623) to learn more!
Who do you sell to?
We sell to everyone. Although we specialize in providing patches to the security industry, Quickuniforms services all businesses, including, but not limited to, automotive, business/corporate, decorative, education, EMT & EMS, entertainment, fire & rescue, food service, government, hospitality, law enforcement, military, healthcare, clubs/non-profits, scouts, sports, and awareness. We also provide our services to individuals as well! If you're not sure if we can help you, just give us a call - cause chances are, we can!
Do you guarantee your products?
We guarantee that your patches will be free of defects, accurate to the specified size, and produced according to the virtual proof that is approved. On some complicated designs, the art department may have to simplify the design during production. The patches are generally quite durable and can last a long time with proper care.
Do you have any e-coupons?
Yes! E-coupons are usually sent via email to members of our mailing list.
Can you reproduce or improve my existing patch?
We certainly can. We recommend that you send us your existing patch by uploading an image or design file by going to our Contact Us page (click on the orange Contact Us tab along the right side of the page), or by email (firstname.lastname@example.org). Sometimes, there may be slight color discrepancies during production between your existing patch and the new patch. If you wish to have an exact match of your existing patch, you can also send your patch via standard mail to: 16012 Blythe St., Van Nuys, CA, 91406.
Do you have pre-made design that I can use?
We have ready-to-use designs that you can customize with your company name, text color, and logo (some designs). Our designers have created these exclusive ready-to-use designs as ideal samples for each industry. Our designs for the security industry have been thoroughly researched and have undergone lengthy revision processes to ensure that they are the most effective for your company identity.

Can your designers create a patch from scratch for me?
Absolutely. Our art department will consult with you to determine the colors, styles, and symbols most suitable for your company identity. The designs will be uploaded to the MyDesign section of our site, where you will be able to review and provide feedback for up to 3 design revisions. The custom artwork that is created can also be used for creating patches and other marketing items, such as brochures, business cards, banners, and more.
What is the turn-around time on the art?
The turn-around time on most designs is 1-2 business days (if no revisions are required). If revisions are requested, turn-around time for each revision will be subject to when we are able to receive feedback (via MyDesign) to apply to the revision.
Is there an art fee?
There are no art fees if you are using an existing patch. Art fees will apply for the following:
Improve your patch: You have a patch you want to make some minor changes to (i.e. change text, color, add logo, etc.). - $25-125
New Patches: You want our professional designers to create a new and unique patch design to help stand out from the competition. - $45-195
Use our Designs: You want to use one of our designs as a starting point with minor adjustments made (i.e. change text, color, add logo, etc.). - $25-125
Any art fees that are charged go towards the time and resources dedicated to your project by our professional designers.
What services does you art department provide?
Our art department has over 15 years of experience with a background in marketing and branding, and is skilled in designing professional logos, patches, badges, silk-screens, business cards, and tri-fold brochures. A significant amount of time is devoted to each project to ensure that there is attention to detail and a quality finished design.
What is the production time?
Rush production time can be as little as 7-14 business days. If you need the patches by a certain date, let us know and we will try our best to accommodate your request. Standard production time is approximately 3-5 weeks. Please allow an additional 3-5 days for shipment once production is complete. For faster shipping options, contact us.

What are the shipping costs?
The shipping costs will vary depending on the size of the order being shipped. Our logistics department has gone to great lengths over the years to create a system of protocols to use in order to ensure that your shipping costs are kept to a minimum. We use UPS Ground for all of our shipments, but if you wish for an order to be expedited we can certainly arrange for it to arrive as soon as possible.
What is the minimum order?
There is a minimum order of 50 pieces on all custom patches due to the production process that is required to create them. Minimum requirements for placing an order and for price breaks are for 1 particular design and cannot be obtained by using multiple patches or variations of the original design (e.g. 25 patches with a red background and 25 patches with a blue background).
How long are price quotes good for?
We try to keep the price quotes the same for you for as long as we can, and are good for 30 days. We try to always keep our prices low for you so that you get the best value with Quickuniforms. **If you place an order with Quickuniforms and our prices change before you have received your order, rest assured that there will be NO CHANGE to the total price of your order.**
Can I cancel/change my order?
Due to the nature of the production process, patch orders typically cannot be cancelled. If you need to cancel or make changes to your patch order while your patch is being designed, contact us immediately (1.818.908.2623) and we may be able to cancel production, but will not be able to refund art fees. If production has begun, the order cannot be cancelled or changed.
