    Default TDU/BDU style uniform badges?

    Looking for a supplier of the sew-on TDU/BDU style badges for a uniform. I can't find anything other than security guard ones on Galls. The other fire retailers seem to only have normal metal badges. Working on explorer uniforms and need these for them. Anyone know of a retailer that sells these?
    Even the burger-flippers at McDonald's probably have some McWackers.

    Look for a local tailor shop, in your area, that does embroidering. They will usually create an original patch for a small setup fee.
    Here is an online example to give you an idea on pricing. American Patch & Emblem Company

    I am not having any luck with this at all. Galls and the other online places I know of don't seem to have ANY sew on badges. They must exist somewhere.

    It may be a stretch - but check out Rosen's in Albany NY- they supplied our BDU uniforms with custom embroidered patches- if they can't do it themselves maybe they can direct you.....

    Are you looking for something like this?


    Check out Emblem Enterprises. We had at one time planned to get cloth badges for our job shirts, but went in a different direction. When I worked with them a couple of years ago on that project, they had both stock and custom cloth badges available. All of my dealings with them were very pleasant. Their number is (800) 444-5561.

    I'd go with the security guard ones.
