We are a family-run business. Our founder, E. Henry Conrad immigrated to the United States at the start of The Great Depression. Despite the odds, he thrived. A-B Emblem became an official supplier to the US Military during WW II.

In 1961, Mr. Conrad worked with NASA to create the space agency’s first embroidered patch known as “The Meatball.” A-B Emblem is proud to be the official contractor to NASA for embroidered patches since 1970. We are headquartered in Weaverville, North Carolina.

New for 2021: A-B Emblem adds new types of patches to our catalog and a long-lasting, pressure-sensitive adhesive backing named Attach-MY-Patch™. It eliminates the need to iron-on or sew-on a patch.
