Adding Print to your PVC Makes for a Strong Impact

We wanted to write this to those of you who think you can’t ‘have your cake and eat it too’ with PVC.   There is a misconception that exists that you can have either a PRINTED patch or a 2-D/3-D patch.   That is simply not true.

You can Have Both!

This Louisiana State Police patch is a great example of utilizing two mediums to create a dimensional and detailed PVC Patch.   When you take a closer look at this patch, you can see the flat raised sections in the border lettering, starts and logo.   You then can see very fine print within the molded PVC that have been printed.  This allowed them to use a very fine print that wouldn’t have been possible with molded lettering.

How to Decide if Print will Enhance your Patch

If you have a design with fine detail, small lettering and print, then this medium might be perfect for you.    The best way to determine if this will add value to your design would be to send your ideas and artwork in to one of our PVC Sales Representatives so they can work with you and our Art Department to get the best out of your design.

Adding the element of print will tack a few extra days onto the production time for your patch.    Otherwise, the costs associated with print are within the same price range depending upon the amount of colors and needed detail.   All of our quotes are done on a case-by-case basis, so working with one of our PVC Representatives is the best way to go.

With standard channels in regular PVC, fine detail is difficult to achieve.   When you add the element of Print atop the PVC, you are able to pick up the fine detail.



Another fine detail of printed PVC is the ability to add gradient color to your designs.   Shading is possible with Printed PVC that is unavailable for standard 2-D and 3-D PVC.   Many are choosing to use both the features of 3-D along with printed elements for a truly unique patch.



This patch takes the detail, the gradient shading and dramatic expression of Shemps face, adds them all together to create a true piece of art on a PVC Patch.   This is proof that PVC can be used as a canvas not unlike a great piece of abstract art.
