Custom PVC patches are an amazing choice if you need a rugged, waterproof patch. Let’s learn more!
We offer seven different custom patch styles at The/Studio. Our most popular patches are our embroidered patches, but if you’re looking for a waterproof, rugged, and durable patch, then PVC patches are for you!
But to start things off… What is PVC, anyways?
Well, PVC is a type of plastic. The acronym PVC stands for polyvinyl chloride. That might sound foreign, but really, the feel of this high-quality plastic is very similar to that of rubber. Think of PVC as a better, stronger, alternative to rubber.
PVC patches are our thickest, heftiest patch option. They’re also 100% waterproof, durable, flexible, and capable of displaying very detailed designs. There’s a lot to recommend PVC patches for your next custom patch order.
Who Usually Orders PVC Patches?
PVC patches can be worn by anyone, but we see them most frequently ordered by the following groups:
- AQUATIC BRANDS: Such as scuba diving, surfing, and kayaking outfitters. This is because PVC patches are completely waterproof.
- AIRSOFT/PAINTBALL TEAMS: This is because of their immense durability and because they are easy to wash.
- MILITARY PERSONNEL: Again, this is because PVC patches are the most durable patch type, and they’re also easy to clean.
Others who often order PVC patches are mainstream outdoor or athleisure brands, but they’re also commonly used for corporate swag.
The Best Quality PVC Patches on the Market
We don’t want to brag, we create the very best customized PVC patches. We don’t just use the highest quality PVC. We also understand the benefits and limitations of PVC as a material, so we can recommend changes to your design to create the very best finished product. Other drag-and-drop online patchmakers might allow you to make PVC patches, but they won’t be able to catch snags and limitations like we can. You might end up with a design that looks totally different in person than it did online—and not in a good way!
We also offer TONS of customization options. When you make personalized PVC patches with The/Studio don’t just get to pop in your design. You also get to fine-tune the patch thickness, backing, and color scheme, not to mention a whole slew of add-ons and upgrades. Some of our most popular custom PVC patch upgrades include 3D and glow-in-the-dark designs, as well as sewing channel borders (where your design incorporates textured lines and borders via decorative stitching).
The short story is that we’ve been creating custom patches for 10+ years, so we have a lot of experience in the industry. There’s nobody better to make your next batch of personalized PVC patches, whether you’re an outdoor club, airsoft team, or athletic brand.
