For More Branding Power, Upgrade Your Patches

For More Branding Power, Upgrade Your Patches

Published Apr 15, 2022 by Rick Cundiff

Sometimes in life, you just gotta upgrade.

At least that’s what my cable TV company is telling me. Allow me to explain.

My wife and I returned from a week’s vacation recently to find a message on our TV screen. In short, it said while the channels we normally receive were still available, we wouldn’t get them in high definition.

Given what we pay each month for HD, you better believe I expect HD programming. So I called up the cable folks – always fun, isn’t it? The very nice young woman on the other end of the line said we needed new equipment. So we bit the bullet and did what we had to do.

That can be true of patches, too. Sometimes, whether it’s due to fading, cracking, ripped threads on the garment it’s attached to, or other reasons, you need to upgrade and update your patch look.

Maybe the logo of your company has changed. Maybe you want to add a logo to your employee name patches. Maybe you just want a brighter, bolder, more colorful look.

A good patch provider will be happy to discuss changes to your design. Whether you want to simply update your existing patches or are looking for a whole new style, any reputable provider will have graphic artists on staff who can make your patches look their best.

Why not give it some thought? If you’ve had your current patches for a while, maybe now is the time to go for a new idea. If you want to update name patches, morale patches, or even the patches on the back of a jacket, think about what you want to say.

Then say it with new colors, bolder thread colors, a bigger patch. Or a smaller patch. You might even consider a different patch style all together. Go from embroidered to PVC, for example. Or vice versa. It’s entirely up to you.

There’s never been a better time to update your patch style than right now. Give your patch provider a call – especially if it’s --  and infuse some new life into your patches.
