Bicycling Enthusiasts Love Wearing Custom Patches on Jackets

August 23rd, 2014

BicyclePatchBicycling is a form of physical activity that can be enjoyed by people of all ages.  From the moment a person’s feet hit the pedals, they feel a sense of freedom that they never felt before.  Bicycling is a great form of exercise with a low carbon footprint.  In fact, many people don’t own a vehicle because they prefer to ride their bike.

Biking is great for toning and conditioning muscles.  It burns calories and can be a great stress reliever.  Best of all, it can be done on a number of different “cycles”.  There are unicycles, tricycles, quadracycles, and human powered vehicles.

Some of the benefits of bicycling include:

  • Regular exercise.
  • Low cost.
  • Minimum maintenance.
  • No parking issues.
  • Something a family can do together.
  • A chance to get outdoors and see the world.

As you can see, bicycling has a long list of benefits.  It’s a great way to get around and serves as a form of exercise that is enjoyable.  People bike from one location to the next with ease because today’s bicycles are designed to go the distance.

If you’re part of a bicycling club, you’re likely to ride with other members of your community each week.  Why not announce your affiliation with the group by creating custom embroidered patches to hand out to all of the club’s members?  Your kind gesture will not go unnoticed.  In fact, people will be impressed with your thoughtful gift.  They’ll want to wear the patches right away.

We offer two different patch options for you to choose from-woven and embroidered.  Each has a distinct look and is created in a very specific way.  The biggest difference is that woven patches are weaved tightly to show off the details of a design.  Embroidered patches can be up to 75% embroidery or 76% to 100% embroidery.  It’s your choice.

We create our patches by using high quality materials and allow up to 7 free colors per design.  Every additional color cost $0.10 per color per piece.  This allows you to create a custom patch that is every bit as colorful and unique as your cycling club members.

Getting in touch with Signature Patches is easy.  You can call 1-800-257-9664 toll-free.  You can email info@signaturepatches.com, or you can fill out a request for a free price quote through our website’s submission form.  We provide everything you need to place your order securely and quickly.

Create Custom Embroidered Patches for National Field Trip Month

August 20th, 2014

October is an exciting month for a number of different reasons.  Halloween is one reason kids celebrate fall.  Another reason is that it’s National Field Trip Month and a lot of schools plan for the occasion by going on an excursion with students.  Kids around the country get to take trips to historic locations and explore local lore.  It gets them out of the classroom and allows them to see landmarks and artifacts rather than just read about them.FieldTripPatch

Make the Experience Even More Memorable

Teachers can make the trip more of a learning experience by handing out custom embroidered patches that they created.  The keepsake items can serve as a visual aid that helps children remember what they learned on their field trip.  Patches can be sewn, ironed on, Velcroed on or peeled and stuck onto an article of clothing, hat or bag.  This makes it so the kids can see and enjoy the patches day after day.

Creating an Embroidered Patch That is Unforgettable

There are a number of different ways to make your embroidered patches unforgettable.  For example, you can start out by determining how much embroidery you want the items to have.  We have two options.  The first is up to 75% embroidered.  The second is 76%-100% embroidered.

Next, select the colors of embroidery thread that you like best.  There are over 250 to choose from and you get up to 7 colors free with every order.  You can also select the mesh color that you like best.  There are 70 different options available.

Choose the type of edge you prefer.  There’s 75% with Merrowed Edge, 100% with Merrowed Edge, and a Heat Cut Edge.  Once you’ve decided on the edge, pick a backing.  This will make the patch permanently affixed to apparel or give the wearer the option to remove and place it on a number of different articles of clothing.
