When shopping for patches, quality is everything. A low-quality patch will fall apart or not adhere when applied. A high-quality badge is sturdy and adheres well. You want your patches to last as long as possible - a patch that peels off your clothing is not ideal. There can be minor flaws with products, such as loose threads, which are a common problem. While we cannot fully prevent this issue, we work diligently with our manufacturer to combat the problem. It is also important for your patch to be affordable.
The first significant factor is the material that it's made from. Our 18 years of business have taught us which materials work best for patches and which do not. We use quality materials to ensure the longevity and durability of our patches. If your patch is on clothing, a rigid patch will be less than ideal if you need to bend or stretch the area it covers, such as on your arms or legs.
The material will also determine how durable your patch is. Our experienced staff will help you select the right materials for your product, taking into consideration both design and purpose. Some patch materials are sturdier and will hold up better when on outdoor work clothes. When you complete your quote request, we consider how your patches will be used and select the highest quality patch materials during production to ensure the product matches the design of your order and the purpose it will serve.
The backing is equally important. You want it to be durable so that it withstands everyday wear and tear, as well as being permanently attached to your clothes. This is why sewing your patches on reduces the risk of your crest falling off. While we typically make iron-on patches, we offer different backing choices such as iron-on, plastic, velcro, and no backing.
When purchasing patches, looking at the seller's information is important. Always check the reviews for an item or shop. Customer comments or reviews can tell you a lot about the quality of the product and whether or not it is a worthy investment.
