Creating Your Custom Patches
Why Should I use PVC instead of Embroidery for My Patches?
Although embroidered patches will make your standard uniform look amazing, they tend to wear off much and lose their amazing looks with just a few washes, or by your daily activities in the law enforcement team, unlike PVC patches, as they will last maybe even longer than your uniform.

Frequently Asked Questions
What Are Soft PVC Patches?
The PVC mix used in our patches is especially formulated so it is exactly that, Soft and bendable and very resistant to almost any use AND abuse.
What Make PVC Patches So Special?
– They look amazing!
– You can have many PVC layers that bring the patch to “life”, by adding raised and recessed elements.
– You can have very small text on your design, without those stinking jump-stitches (read our article about PVC vs Embroidered patches)
– They have “substance”. The weight of a PVC patch is much more than the one of woven patches (read our article about PVC vs Woven Patches)
Did we mention they do not have threads?

Can I Have My Patch Design Made in PVC?
Is there a Set Size, or Can I Make My patch in Any size?
I have an old Embroidered Patch. Can you make a new PVC patch based on this one?
We love turning old embroidered patches into PVC ones!
Some customers choose to take a picture of it, and some choose to send us the patch in the mail so we can make it as close as possible as the old one. Having it in our hands also helps us match the colors as close as the original one. We use the PMS Coated and Uncoated Color chart to match your colors as close as we can to the original one.
Do you make Custom Patches for Hats? I want to sew my patch to hats, can I do that?
If you are sewing your patch to any piece of clothing, please let your rep know so he/she can add a “Sewing Channel” to your patch.
Sewing Channels are nothing but a border inside the outer border of patch, that is recessed into the PVC, making it thinner and therefore easier to sew either with a sewing machine or by hand.
But you don’t have to sew your patch to your hat. We can also add Hook and Loop to make your custom patches work with Velcro Hats, Vests, Jackets and Backpacks.
What Other Custom Products Can You Manufacture with Soft PVC?
Besides custom soft rubber patches, we can also make custom labels, keychains, zipper pulls, coaster, magnets, luggage tags, dog tags and lapel pins.

I will be recommending Linx to others
Becky Liuchan was extremely patient during the entire process and being this was the first time designing a patch like this, she walked me through the process step by step. I gave her a very detailed design and she was able to come up with a final product that was exactly what we were looking for. I will be recommending Linx to others and looking forward to working with Becky and the team at Linx again on future designs.Bruce Stoffolano – NYSP

Extra Thick Patch
Our new customer from Alpine Armoring wanted a extra-thick patch (usually a PVC patch is 4mm thick and this one is 6mm, 3mm for the base and 3mm for the top layer).
This patch features extra-sharp details, needed to be complaint with the brand.
We love the way it came out, and the depth of the gray layer over the top one makes it just great.
