One of the best ways to commemorate a special event for your organization is the creation of a unique, limited-edition embroidered patch. These designs can be inexpensive, single or dual color patches in a standard shape or a more elaborate die-cut emblem using multiple colors.
Embroidered patches are extremely versatile, with display options on shirts, coats, hats, tote or storage bags and luggage, blankets or any fabric surface. Durable patches with modern polyester threads stand up to repeated laundering, usually outlasting the life of a garment.
Patches don’t have to be sewn on in the traditional method with needle and thread. Instead, your embroidered emblem can be manufactured with a Velcro backing or with a peel-off self adhesive or with iron-on application. All of these manufacturing methods make it easier for members/participants to instantly display and enjoy their new embroidered patch.
If your organization has an annual event, participants will eagerly display multiple years of patches to showcase their experience and participation. Many groups hold a contest among members to determine the design for the next year’s patch. Local or regional chapters of organizations create individual identity through the use of custom-designed embroidered patches exclusively for members.
Chicago Embroidery Co. can help design a vibrant patch for your group and suggest economical methods to maximize budget dollars. For instance, a large order has a lower cost per patch, and can be used to develop a vivid signature image for the annual event. An additional smaller and less expensive rocker patch can be issued each time the event is held (see our previous blog for more information on rocker patches and how they can extend the life of your design) and is displayed adjacent to the larger main emblem.
