What is the Difference Between a 75% Thread Patch and a 100% Thread Patch

Do you know the difference between a 75% thread patch and a 100% thread patch? At first glance, you might not be able to distinguish between the two. After careful examination, however, you will see there is a distinct difference.

Here is how you can differentiate between the different thread counts:

  • At 75% thread there is going to be some area of the patch that will need to have mesh on it.
  • With 100% thread the patch will have 100% Rayon thread throughout the patch and you run your hand across the patch. (No mesh backing will show).

We have over 71 mesh backings colors to choose from. At 75% thread you will be able to keep your cost down and still get a great looking patch! No matter what your budget may be, we can come up with an eye-catching custom patch perfect for your business, organization, school, military unit or sports team. This allows you to identify and reward people for a job well done.

Custom Patch Customer Reviews

Signature patches was easy to work with


Signature patches was easy to work with and were helpful in assisting with the proof process and color selection. They also had the best pricing for PVC patches that I've found to date. I'm very happy with the final product and will definitely be using them in the future!

Fantastic patches and support


Fantastic patches and support, couldn't be happier! The PVC quality is great and will hold up well. My squadron is in Japan and they securely shipped everything very expeditiously. As they say in the Navy, Bravo Zulu!
