Custom embroidered epaulettes (or shoulder slides and rank slides as they are also known), are worn in many organisations such as security firms, ambulance services, taxi services, fire departments, police forces, corrections facilities, and of course by members of our armed forces.


They are also a great way to display your corporate logo, custom text, and rank insignia.


A1 insignia uses only the highest quality materials and workmanship to produce our epaulettes. The majority of our custom epaulettes are embroidered onto a base fabric however for very fine detail we can also supply woven epaulettes.


If you are not quite sure what you are after then send us a your ideas and we will work with you to ensure that the finished items are exactly what you wanted.


A1 insignia are one of the largest supplies of epaulettes to the Australian Defence Force so we know what we are doing and take pride in our work.


Some frequently asked questions about epaulettes:

Can they be washed?

The materials we use will wash at 40 degrees, and the threads are also colour-fast to this temperature.


Is there a minimum order?

You can order a single pair. Of course the more you order the cheaper they become.  If you have any questions, please email or call us and we will be more than happy to discuss your custom epaulette order.


Can we have individually numbered epaulettes?

Our custom epaulettes are intended to offer you a personal touch. Just send us the list, quantities of numbers and names required, then we’ll use this information to create a personalised product tailored to your exact specifications. Feel free to contact us for any assistance you may require.


Can we use a metallic thread?

Our metallic-look thread is available in gold and silver.
