What’s the difference between a Patch and a Label?
Patches and labels are very similar except in how they are used. The difference is, labels are smaller and thinner and are usually made with a sewing channel, so they can be sewn onto a product. Labels are popular with tactical gear companies as they make great identification labels on any product. Rubber labels can be made with optional velcro backing or adhesive backing. Patches usually come with Velcro and are made for apparel and uniforms. Either product can be made in any shape, size or color and can be designed in days.

Why PVC instead of Embroidery?
One of the most asked questions at The Monterey Company is, “what is PVC ?” 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. Made of strong plastic ( Polyvinyl chloride ) they can be made in a multitude of colors including most PMS colors ( Pantone Matching System ) that can bring custom images and designs to life. They have a special durability that will long outlast their cloth cousins. Unlike cloth patches, they 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 other uses.
Is it really an alternative to the old style embroidered patch?
PVC (also known as Polyvinyl chloride) is one of the oldest materials made by man and is used for many different products today. First created in 1835 by a French chemist named Henri Victor Renault, PVC is a certain type of plastic that feels similar to rubber and is known for its strength and weightlessness and can be made 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. A popular choice for anyone looking for a material that can show their logo through rain or shine! Unlike embroidery 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!
