Ah, September. It always somehow feels like both an ending and a new beginning at the same time.
An ending because the last few days of summer are counting down, and with them the sense of carefree fun and revelry. Time to pack up the picnics, bid the beach goodbye and head back to school.
And yet it’s also a beginning, of a new school year, of new projects and prospects, and of course, of pumpkin spice latte season.
My wife loves autumn. She’s always happy when September 1st rolls around. She calls it the start of the "-Ber" season – you know, Septem-, Octo-, Novem- and Decem-. She’s excited to see cooler temperatures and shorter days.
Naturally, those shorter days and cool temps bring out jackets, sweaters and hats too. And if there ever was a time that’s ripe for great looking custom patches, now is it.
You can customize just about any jacket or sweater with autumn-themed patches. Whether it’s denim, leather, cotton, polyester or any other material, there’s a way to attach a patch. There’s never been a better time to celebrate fall with images of colored leaves, campfires, Halloween ghosts and goblins, Thanksgiving turkeys or cornucopias.
Are you a sports fan? Show your team loyalty while tailgating outside the stadium with custom team patches.
Or maybe you want to honor the season in a different way. Biketoberfest in Daytona Beach is right around the corner. If you’re headed that way, why not add some extra flair to your leathers with new patches?
About that pumpkin spice theme – not all of us are fans. But if you are, don’t let us stop you. If you want a jacket with a 12-inch back patch celebrating the fabled PSL (pumpkin spice latte, for the uninitiated), by all means, go for it!
It’s really all about what aspects of autumn you want to celebrate. There are lots of reasons to enjoy and commemorate the season. Just pick one – or several – and let your imagination run free. Create a design that shows the world how much you love your favorite season.
And if you just want the pumpkin spice promos and the Halloween hoopla to go away, don’t worry. The Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Year’s holidays are right around the corner. You know you need new patches for that office ugly Christmas sweater contest! And eggnog is a much better flavor than pumpkin spice!*
