New Year, New Patch Style -- Go Big and Bold with PVC Patches

Published Jan 3, 2022 by Rick Cundiff

Happy New Year! Here we are at the start of another trip around the sun. It’s a time for looking back and looking forward. A time for both reminiscing about best experiences of the past year and looking forward to the next 365 days as well.

The last year brought challenges, as all years do. But it’s time to put that behind us and look forward to the opportunities a new year can bring.

Why not embrace the prospects that 2022 offers? Go for bigger, bolder, brighter custom patches to enhance your organization’s brand recognition and presence in the marketplace.

If you want bigger and bolder, consider switching from embroidered or woven patches to PVC. Our custom PVC patches give you more detail, more color and a bold, bright look that embroidered patches just can’t match.

Why PVC Instead of Embroidered or Woven?

Both embroidered and woven patches are limited by their thread counts. There’s only so much detail you can get into a design with thread before it becomes illegible.

PVC patches, made of a soft, rubberlike plastic, are lightweight and rugged enough to withstand even the harshest weather conditions. They allow you to incorporate photo-like detail into your design. We can craft your custom PVC patches in virtually any shape or size you can imagine.

One key factor to be aware of with PVC patches is that they cannot use an iron-on backing. The heat of an iron would melt the patch, possibly ruining not only the patch, but also the garment and the iron itself.

For that reason, PVC patches need to be sewn on or attached with Velcro® fasteners. With their waterproof durability and a Velcro backing, they make excellent morale patches.

It’s a brand new year. Why not celebrate it with a brand new look for your organization’s patches? Our expert staff can recommend the perfect patch style for your specific needs, whether PVC, embroidered or woven.
