Custom PVC Patches are an essential way to promote your logo.
One of the most asked questions at The Monterey Company is, “what is a PVC patch?” When you think of patches, you may think of cloth or woven patches. Although these patches are popular and common, designing your patches using PVC is smarter, more modern and more prepared. Why? Made of strong plastic, PVC patches come in a huge variety of colors that can bring custom images and designs to life. These PVC patches also have a special durability that will long outlast their cloth cousins.
PVC is one of the oldest materials made by man and is used for many different things today. First created in 1835 by a French chemist named Henri Victor Renault, PVC, also known as Polyvinyl chloride, is a certain type of plastic that feels similar to rubber and is known for its strength and weightlessness. Sometimes used to make bank cards and plastic bottles PVC can also be made softer. This softer version of PVC is often used to replace rubber and is easy to use in more flexible items such as faux leather and inflatable products. It is this type of PVC that we use for patches!
Unlike cloth patches, PVC patches are highly waterproof and will never fade, fray, peel or crack. This makes them perfect for use in the military, outdoors and sports, among many others! Patches that are made of PVC give your logo or image an awesome 3D look and are easy to clean with a cloth or sponge. There are many different ways you can put PVC patches on your shirt, but the most popular way is with a Velcro backing. This makes it easy to change designs without changing your shirt or jacket. Also, the only limit to the design of your PVC patches is your imagination. These patches can come in any design, shape, color and almost any size imaginable! From as small as half an inch to as large as 15 inches, PVC is a high quality choice for such a sensible buy. PVC patches are surely the popular choice for anyone looking for a material that can show their logo through rain or shine!
know is that these patches may be expensive. Because each set of PVC patches need a mold and colors, these patches are usually a bit higher in price than cloth patches. However, the material can prove to be worth their price tag if you need patches that can withstand rough conditions. The second thing to know is that order minimums are usually high as well. At The Monterey Company, we require a minimum order of 100 or more. The third thing is knowing that the more detailed your design, the more space is needed to fit it. A larger PVC patch would be perfect for a more complicated design and vice versa. Because of this, PVC patches are usually used for simple designs. Overall though, PVC patches are high in quality and in looks! They can withstand high temperatures, bad conditions and will never crack or fade. These patches will stay beautiful for as long as you need to wear them. Custom made with your design or logo, PVC patches can turn any image into a wearable masterpiece!
