3 Things You Can Do Only With PVC
PVC isn’t just for plumbing any more. The rugged material holds color almost permanently and resists rips, scuffs, markings, fading and the elements long after other materials have thrown in the towel.
Here are three fun hacks we’ve seen people do with PVC as an accessory and apparel material. Don’t forget to request your free PVC ideas using the links at the bottom! Our designers are standing by to take your ideas and turn them into PVC gold.
#3 – Go crazy with 3D textures.
Good luck replicating the above with fabric or embroidery. Our PVC patches resemble nothing you’ve seen before because regular fabric patches can’t begin to look like that.
From fish scales to feathers, grid lines to circles, PVC is about the touch. Your free design gives you control down to the smallest details, making for a sculpted product experience unlike anything else we’ve felt.
Making you a modern Michelangelo.
#2 – Go scuba-diving. Or save money.
Hold on, these two are related. The same waterproof quality that makes PVC patches great for scuba fanatics diving in salty environments allows PVC coasters to be dishwashed hundreds of times without losing their color. PVC resists the color-sucking abilities of sea salt, but it also shrugs off the cleaning agents in commercial dishwashers — meaning your logo stays vibrant long after paper coasters would have given up.
Between ocean diving and college dives, you can bet that PVC will stand up the rigors of your lifestyle, too.
#1 – Use all the colors.
Unlike similar molded resin or metal techniques, where the same-color material is poured into a cast, working with PVC allows you to uniquely color each aspect of your sculpture, almost like painting a model. The result is the effect of expensive hand-painting for a fraction of the price. That means magnets born for premier real estate on any fridge.
PVC offers you a vast assortment of design options, textures, colors and possibilities. So don’t go it alone — request a quote today on our patches, coasters, magnets or keychains and let your free The/Studio designer show you all the options that could with your existing logo or just some rough ideas — we’re eager to put PVC to work for you.
