Frequently Asked Questions
What Are Soft PVC Patches?
Also called Rubber Patches, are patches made with a soft mix of PVC rubber that can be molded to any shape and almost any size, resulting in a highly-detailed, highly-resistant patch.

– You can have very small text on your design, without those stinking jump-stitches (read our article about PVC vs Embroidered patches)
– They have “substance”. The weight of a PVC patch is much more than the one of woven patches (read our article about PVC vs Woven Patches)
Did we mention they do not have threads?
The MAIN reason custom rubber patches are the Preferred Choice of any Law Enforcement Agency that is looking to get new patches for their uniform or tactical gear is that rubber Patches Will Not Get Stuck, unraveled or Ripped (unlike custom embroidered patches) while you are doing your job.
Can I Have My Patch Design Made in PVC?
99% of the time, the answer is Yes! In occasions we will have to simplify some design elements if they will not work with the PVC manufacturing process, but it will be worth it!
Is there a Set Size, or Can I Make My patch in Any size?
We can make your PVC patch in any size from 1/2″ thru 16″.
I have an old Embroidered Patch. Can you make a new PVC patch based on this one?
We can certainly do that!
We love turning old embroidered patches into PVC ones!
Some customers choose to take a picture of it, and some choose to send us the patch in the mail so we can make it as close as possible as the old one. Having it in our hands also helps us match the colors as close as the original one. We use the PMS Coated and Uncoated Color chart to match your colors as close as we can to the original one.
Do you make Custom Patches for Hats?
Yes we make custom Velcro hat patches!
Lots of people want to create a custom hat with their company logo, and they are very familiar with the concept of custom embroidered hats.
Hats come in lots of colors and styles, and the beauty of a having a patch hat made is, it allows you to add your brand logo to any type of hat: flexfit snapback hats, trucker hats, baseball caps, increasing the options available to you, so you can choose the type of hat that will go best with your brand.
Now you are not limited to the limitations of direct embroidery, or the fear of your logo wearing off if you get your caps screen printed, a PVC Patch will outlive the wear and tear of any hat in the market.
If you are sewing your patch to any piece of clothing, please let your rep know so he/she can add a “Sewing Channel” to your patch.
Sewing Channels are nothing but a border inside the outer border of patch, that is recessed into the PVC, making it thinner and therefore easier to sew either with a sewing machine or by hand.
But you don’t have to sew your patch to your hat. We can also add Hook and Loop to make your custom patches work with Velcro Hats, Vests, Jackets and Backpacks.
What Other Custom Products Can You Manufacture with Soft PVC?
Besides custom soft rubber patches, we can also make custom PVC labels, key chains, zipper pulls, coaster, magnets, luggage tags, dog tags and lapel pins.
How is PVC better than Other Patch Types?
The best patch type for your project will depend on your likes and dislikes, the nature of the project, the place it will be attached to, among other things.
But, the one use where PVC definitely wins the battle is a custom design used as Velcro Patch, on Tactical Gear (commonly known as a Tactical Morale Patch).

Becky Liuchan was extremely patient during the entire process and being this was the first time designing a patch like this, she walked me through the process step by step.

We love the way it came out, and the depth of the gray layer over the top one makes it just great.

Trine Integrated Services Inc. -Jeremy White
I am very happy with the product and customer service LINX offered us. I own a private security firm in California. LINX provides the shoulder patches for our officers.
Their entire process from initial setup to reordering is hassle free.
They’ve been the best priced PVC patches that I have been able to find. The quality of the patches is amazing.
We have some from our initial order a couple years ago still being used by officers. I plan to continue using them under this company and any others that I form.
