Custom Martial Arts Patches Make Great Additions to Uniforms

September 28th, 2014

Martial arts studios and schools concentrate on one discipline or several disciplines depending on where they are located and the demand for such training.  Each business can have their very own custom embroidered or woven patches to hand out to students.  The items can then be attached to a uniform and worn to practices and tournaments.martial-arts-patch

Styles of Marital Arts in the US

The styles of martial arts popular in the United States include:

  • American Karate
  • American Kenpo
  • Chun Kuk Do
  • Collegiate Wrestling
  • Danzan-ryu
  • Emerson Combat Systems
  • Gouging
  • Jailhouse Rock
  • Jeet Kune Do
  • Kajukenbo
  • Marine Corps Martial Arts Program
  • Model Mugging
  • Modern Army Combatives
  • Oom Yung Doe
  • S.C.A.R.S.
  • Shootfighting
  • Sli Beatha
  • Small Circle Jujutsu
  • SPEAR System
  • World War II Combatives’

Each discipline requires a great amount of skill and determination.  Why not award your students a patch once they demonstrate that they’ve mastered what you’ve taught them?  Like the different colors of belt handed out in Karate and Tae Kwan Do, patches can be used to mark an achievement.

Host a ceremony where you present patches to students.  This is a great way to get the community involved as well.  New generations of martial artists can enroll in your beginner’s classes and work their way up to master level.

Five Reasons Why Custom Embroidered Patches are Essential

September 25th, 2014

Custom embroidered patches are ideal for businesses, organizations, schools, clubs, military units, and sports teams.  They can be used for identification purposes as well as to reward, thank, encourage, inform, promote, and advertise.  We offer a number of different options with our embroidered patches.  For example, they can be up to 75% embroidered.  They can also be from 76%-100% embroidered depending on your needs and preferences.

Making Patches Your Own is Easy

Patches can have a number of different colors of embroidery thread on them.  You’re able to select the mesh color, type of edge, and style of backing that works best with your design.  This is what we call complete creative freedom.  We encourage you to put your special touches on the design in every way that you can.

Reasons Why You Should Order Patches Right Away

Five reasons why custom embroidered patches are essential include:

  1. They’re versatile.  As stated above, patches can be used by anyone for any reason.  They’re created in a way that makes them visually appealing as well as useful.
  2. They can be used for identification purposes.  It can be hard to stand out in a crowd.  Custom embroidered patches help your employees, students or club members do just that.
  3. They make great giveaway items.  Traveling to a conference in another city, state or country makes it impossible to lug a lot of promotional products around.  Patches are lightweight and flat, making them perfect for storing in a suitcase or carry-on bag.
  4. They can be used to acknowledge exceptional acts.  As with any award item, patches instill a sense of pride in the recipient.  Acknowledging good deeds and exemplary behavior helps boost morale and encourage others to be their best.
  5. We offer free price quotes, free artwork and design services, and free shipping.  Complimentary services are something that we offer to each and every one of our custom patch customers.

Environmental Cause Patches Raise Awareness About Pressing Issues

September 22nd, 2014

According to an article published by the Huffington Post titled 13 Awe-Inspiring Facts About The Environment, “mother nature will never cease to amaze us.”  The following facts were included in the book, 1,227 Quite Interesting Facts to Knock Your Socks Off by John Lloyd.  Chances are, you’ve never given a lot of thought to where the products you consume come from.  Get ready to learn something new!EnvironmentalCauses

A few facts worth noting are the following:

  • 40 percent of all bottled water sold in the world is bottled tap water.
  • 27,000 trees are felled each day for toilet paper.
  • Paper can be recycled only six times. After that, the fibers are too weak to hold together.
  • The amount of water on Earth is constant, and continually recycled over time: some of the water you drink will have passed through a dinosaur.

Perhaps it’s your goal to start a workplace recycling program.  In order to promote your new initiative, you need a catchy way to get your message across to employees.  One of the ways you can do just that is by creating custom patches that can be ironed, sewn or Velcroed onto an article of clothing, hat or bag.  The unique memento will serve as encouragement for your workers who will be reminded to “Reduce.  Reuse.  Recycle,” at every given opportunity.

Ways to Personalize Your Patches

There are a number of different ways our customers can personalize their patches.  For instance, you can make a choice between embroidered and woven patches.  Embroidered patches can be up to 75% embroidered or 76%-100% embroidered depending on your needs and preferences.  A number of embroidery thread and mesh colors are available to help you create your custom memento.

The second option is woven patches.  This style of patch is ideal for fine lettering and intricate designs.  No mesh shows through making the design tight and visible.  The same embroidery thread, all 250 color choices, are available.  We provide up to 7 colors per customer per order for free.

Other factors that play a role in how your custom embroidered or woven patches appear to others is size, shape, and text.  Our online gallery gives you an idea of how each style of patch looks at the time of manufacturing.  Review your choices by glancing through the pages of our website.  You’ll find valuable information provided on our homepage and the subsequent pages housed at
