I have a cross draw ammo vest (see here -- http://shop.tacticalthings.com/product_info.php?products_id=255) which I plan to use for a future costume. The one shown is not the exact model I have, but what they have in common is that there's plenty of velcro "fuzz" that can accommodate emblems and such.

My question is, where can I find a place that will embroider a velcro emblem of my choosing?

Are you wanting a patch with velcro on the back? That's usually how it''s done. I've never heard of anyone embroidering directly onto velcro. Is it an existing design or a custom design?

There are thousands of places that do custom embroidery you just have to search for them. The larger ones on line are more expensive, charge setup fees and want a minimum order. A smaller storefront operation 'might' do a custom one off job for you.

I'll bet you anythig that there's even a few people on the forum that have embroidery machines, my suggestion is that you put up a 'wanted' post in the market place.
Peole here understand the needs of the cosplayer, as opposed to going in to a place off the street.
