When the conversation turns to patches, most people think of a woven patch or a classic embroidered design. There are all kinds of ways to make beautiful artwork for a set of classic patches, but these days a lot of our customers are turning to a more modern alternative:
The polyvinyl chloride material we use to create soft PVC patches is similar in look and feel to a rubber patch, resulting in the most flexible and durable designs you can find, while also allowing our customers to capture incredible amounts of fine detail in their custom artwork.
Looking for patches with 3D artwork that’s water proof and weather-resistant? PVC patches are perfect for situations in which the wearer is likely to spend a lot of time outdoors, or on the water, or just for someone looking for a different kind of non-threaded patch.
PVC patches are custom made to survive any kind of environment you can imagine. Just like a traditional embroidered patch, they are easy to attach to anything from jackets and vests to hats and backpacks. They’re also waterproof and easily withstand cold temperatures, making them perfect for any activity from an afternoon on the ocean to cutting up snowy slopes in the mountains.
Even if you don’t plan on your patches getting into trouble outside, custom PVC patches are durable, easy to wash and have the best options for layered design and custom 3D artwork. And while it may sound like PVC patches only fit the needs of our more active customers, the truth is that you can find them just about anywhere.
PVC patches custom made to look like company logos are a popular choice for many of our corporate customers. Our custom patches come in all kinds of different colors, shapes and sizes, making it easy to recreate any kind of company emblem or logo. Even if your logo patches need cutouts or oversized shapes, our art team can make it happen. PVC patches made for conventions and recruiting events are used as special promotional items, and some businesses like to hand them out to team members or customers as a part of loyalty programs.
Since soldiers often find themselves in the harshest environments, the most popular material used for military morale patches is PVC. Just as it sounds, morale patches are made to boost a group of soldiers’ morale. With this in mind, it’s easy to see how these types of patches result in a lot of hilarious designs that capture a unique sense of humor.
Almost all of the morale patches we design are ordered with a custom hook and loop backing. This is because custom PVC Hook and loop patches are easy to swap out, giving soldiers the option of choosing different patches based on whatever they feel will best help unit morale on any given day.
Like many of the military patches we help design, law enforcement patches are often created for a specific team or precinct. Custom PVC patches are perfect for capturing the finer details in custom shape patches that resemble police badges or state seals. With the option for 3D design, PVC patches are also able to incorporate artwork with raised and recessed lettering, helping messages stand out clearly.

When it comes to patch pricing, PVC patches are a little more expensive than a woven or embroidered design. However, their durability will ensure they pay for themselves over time. The material doesn't crack or fray and the colors never lose their vibrancy, meaning you won’t need to replace them.
Having a custom mold also allows our customers to create intricate 3D PVC patch designs with unrivaled levels of depth and detail. If you’re looking for something with sculpted artwork, a custom 3D PVC patch is the way to go.
