Whether you are in search of the perfect fire or police uniform or another type, custom Crests can provide the personalization you need, allowing your uniforms to make a striking impression on the areas you serve. In most cases, your force will want to combine Custom Embroidered Patches with mass-produced ones, such as the Canadian flag, a maple leaf, or the symbol associated with your division, whether that is EMS, fire, police, or something else. Those custom crests will deliver a long list of benefits, making them 100 percent worth it.
Specific to Your Department or Location
One of the best things about custom embroidered patches is that they can be made specific to your department or location. Due to the personalization, you can put the full name of your city plus “Police” or “Fire Department”, ensuring that no matter where your team goes, everyone will know the community you serve and what you do there. You can even customize the crests with your city’s emblem to make it stand out.
Match Other Colours on Uniform
Because of the ability to customize, you can even choose the colours of your crests to match the police uniform, if necessary. While most crests are offered with black or navy backgrounds and colours such as silver or gold, the options for custom crests are nearly limitless. A simple conversation with your supplier will let you know which colours are available, and you should expect to find a wide range that includes what you need.
Harder to Fake
Although not incredibly common, you will occasionally come across fake crests that people can use either on costumes or for unscrupulous purposes, such as pretending to be a police officer. If you choose to use custom crests for your department, it will be impossible for others to find a patch that matches yours; they would have to make it themselves. This adds another layer of security by minimizing the risk that someone will impersonate a member of your team. While this will not typically be a concern, it is something to think about.
Include Elements You Prefer
Due to the extreme level of customization, your custom embroidered patches can borrow the elements you like from other crests and leave out those you don’t need or that don’t fit with your uniform. Choose from the common shapes on other crests, such as maple leaves, Canadian flags, interlocking pistols, and more. Or if you don’t feel that any of these have a place in your crest, skip them all and stick to your department’s logo.
