Calculating the size of your custom embroidered patch is easy. Just measure the width and length of your patch (in inches) and add those numbers together. Then divide the resulting number by 2 to get the size of your patch. See the following example.

A hexagonal patch that measures 2 inches high by 4 inches wide

If the height of your patch is 2″ and the width of your patch is 4″, you would add 2 + 4, which equals 6. You then divide 6 by 2, which equals 3, The size of your 2″ x 4″ patch would be 3".
