Branch tapes are embroidered on component-specific color or pattern fabric with component-specific thread color. Velcro tapes are 5" by 1 " with 3/4" lettering in compliance with AR670-1 uniform regulations and are the military standard.
Branch Tapes may be attached via Velcro or sewn on to the uniform coat.
Sew-On Service available for $5 per patch. ACU Coat, Fleece Jacket or Patrol Cap must be purchased from SD-Supply; we do not offer sew-on services for pre-owned uniforms.
The U.S. Army has officially changed ALL OCP Name Tapes, Branch Tapes and Rank Patch specifications to be produced on the 3-Color OCP, meaning that there will no longer be dark browns or greens in the color palette for OCP name or branch tapes. Suppliers are allowed to exhaust their current supply of 7-Color OCP tapes and patches, but once those are gone, all tapes and rank patches will be produced on 3-Color OCP.
