Embroidered vs PVC Patches
Woven vs PVC Patches
Embroidered and woven patches have a long history and continue to be popular. At one time, they were the only types of patches used on military uniforms. However, this has changed in the past years and PVC patches are being used with increased frequency. This is in part, due to the durability of PVC patches. They also don’t fray or fade like embroidered or woven patches tend to. The ability to create more intricate designs with PVC than with other materials is another reason why they have become increasingly popular.
PVC morale patches provide a visible acknowledgment of a person’s achievements which subsequently, helps to raise morale. They can work just as effectively in any setting. Sports coaches may find that they can help to create a similar response among their athletes. They could be worn on uniforms, hats, sports jackets or bags. On the other hand, leaders of civic organizations, where uniforms are also often worn, might find morale patches beneficial for strengthening their organization as well.
Morale patches are frequently sewn into uniforms and so are considered permanent. However, they don’t have to be. If preferred, they can have a Velcro backing, which allows for their removal.
