 The patch business was started in 1964 by Ken and Lois. They had kids in scouting and wanted to provided a way to honor their achievements. So they made up achievement award patches and stocked them for the youth groups to be able to order, as needed, in small quantities, at a reduced price. At that time they were virtually the only ones in the country to do this. In the 1980’s our family bought the business and continued on with the tradition of providing youth groups with quality patches at a great price. That is when the Benchmark name was created. Mom ran the patch business for 10+ years, during which time we mailed out catalogs and orders were placed via the phone and mail. With the advent of the internet we expanded and the next generation took over. We still offer most of the original designs from the 60’s and the now grand-parents and some great-grand parents get quite a kick out of seeing their grand-kids earning the same achievement awards that they earned in their youth. Of course we have added many new designs and will continue to do so.

 We also take pride in offering great looking custom patches to businesses and organizations and individuals all over the world. Patches can be created for all kinds of personal and business uses.
