Experts at our Craft

A-B’s pro design staff plus the Conrad family’s 125+ years experience. Together, we turn your ideas into award-winning patterns of rich, colorful embroidery.

The best thread and fabric

The custom patches we make are produced using the best embroidery thread in the world. We use top-quality background fabrics, custom dyed for uniformity, and routinely tested for durability and color-fastness.

Laminated backing

A laminated backing seals the back of the patch and helps it keep it’s shape and feel. Our washable / dry-cleanable yarn comes in a gamut of brilliant colors and a variety of weights.


Every patch is inspected no less than four times before it can leave our factory.
