II. How to Measure Patch Size?

How to measure patch size In the previous content, we discussed the common sizes of patches. So, how should we measure the size of a patch? You only need to remember one rule: the maximum size rule. It means: we usually calculate the size based on the longest side. For example: If your patch is a rectangle and you want the size to be 6″, we will measure it as 6″ wide and the height proportionate to your image. If your patch is a shield shape and you want the patch to be 4″, we will measure it as 4″ high and the width proportionate to your image. If your patch is a circle, you can directly measure the diameter. The size of the patch=(length + width) / 2. No matter what shape your patch is, you can calculate its size in this way.  

III. What Are the Best Sizes for Your Patches?

What is the best size? This is a difficult question to answer. And there is no standard answer. The best size is the one that suits your needs. For example, if you are customizing police patches and the only space available for the patch is 3″, and 3″ can already fully display your logo, then 3″ is the best size. The purpose of patches is to represent a team’s logo or a beautiful landscape. We need to highlight the most important elements, and the smaller details can be simplified.
