Custom PVC Patches instead of Embroidered Patches?
One of the most asked questions at The Monterey Company is, “what are PVC patches?” When you think of patches, you may think of embroidered patches or woven patches. Although the old style embroidered patches have been popular since the 19th century and made popular by non-profits like the Girl Scouts and Boy Scouts, PVC patches are a smarter choice. Why? made of strong plastic ( Polyvinyl chloride ), PVC can be made in a multitude of colors including most PMS colors ( Pantone Matching System ) that can bring custom images and designs to life. PVC patches also have a special durability that will long outlast their cloth cousins. Unlike cloth patches, a PVC patch is 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!
