FAQ: CUSTOMIZATION AT OMLPATCHES.COM
How to customize patches
How do I customize a "stock" patch?
Every patch we stitch is made to order. We don't have any stock patches hanging around. We prefer to offer totally custom patches to our customers. That leads to the question, how do I make changes to patches?
On each patch order page you have an extensive customization drop down list to design your own custom patch: choices like background camo, thread colors, velcro or no velcro....patches like custom team patches even have spaces for your own lettering and specific color for the lettering. But what if you don't see what you want? For example, you want the Cod Ghost Bio Patch, but you would like the bio symbol in yellow. The easiest way to do this is add comments or instructions to your order, and tell us exactly what you would like. If at all possible, we will then make your patch exactly how you request the patch.
Its that easy. Simply add your color request to your order when checking out. Make your instructions clear and precise, and we will create your custom patch for you.
What if you are still not sure? send us an email and ask! if its possible, we will make it happen and let you know.
Its a very simple way to make every patch truly custom. Why settle for patches that are off the shelf in only one set of colors? or colors that are not right? make them right by letting us know.
OMLPatches.com - where every patch is a custom patch!
I want a different color merrow (edge stitching). What do I do?
Most of the time we can accommodate your request if they are standard colors (standard colors are the basic colors seen on patches all over the website - brown, black, grey, silver, white, red etc.) If it is an odd request (like pink or purple) contact us and we will let you know if its possible.
What if I want a patch with a black background and OD green thread? I don't see that option anywhere.
Thats easy...order the patch with a black background and standard thread. Then before you check out you will see a space for further comments - simply add in that you want the patch with OD THREAD WITH BLACK BACKGROUND and we will make those changes.
HOW DO I PICK A DIFFERENT THREAD COLOR?
If you want a different thread color on your patch please us the radio buttons provided on some patches. If there is not a radio button available then please state your color preference in the additional comments of your order.
WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEEN FULL COLOR AND SUBDUED?
If you choose full color on a patch design then it will be stitched in the colors shown(bright colors)
What if I don't see the option that I want?
If you don't see an patch option that you would like, you can email us at firstname.lastname@example.org, or contact us on the online customer service (near the bottom on the left column on the home page) and get a quick answer. If its simply a thread color change, just add it to your order under further instructions while checking out. If there is a problem we will contact you via email and figure it out.
WILL THE COLORS OF THREAD ON MY CUSTOM PATCH MATCH THE CAMO I AM WEARING?
Yes the colors that we use at omlpatches have been hand selected to match the camoflage perfectly. The color selection was done years ago over the course of time in cooperation with military personnell to assure that they match and give your patches a natural look when placed on the uniform.
