Soccer Patches February 21, 2013
I have this odd fascination with sharks, I think they are one of the most fascinating animals. I look forward to shark week every year and I really want to go on a shark dive (scary, I know.) There is a point to my shark reference and it does have something to do with soccer patches we created. I was contacted by a soccer coach named Kevin, he had just created a soccer team at his 8 year old sons school and he was the head coach. Kevin was so excited to coach his son’s soccer team because he would give him an opportunity to spend more time with his son. The team was so excited because they had just voted on what their team would be called, they had the choice of The Tigers , The Lions , The Bears or The Sharks it was a unanimous decision they wanted to be called The Sharks.
I guess I have something in common with these 8 year old soccer players , Kevin told me they all loved watching Shark week and that was their favorite animal. I told Kevin that I had a fascination with sharks as well, we had a good laugh and then we proceeded to discuss his soccer patches he wanted to order. Kevin told me that he wanted to order 20 soccer patches, he said he didn’t have an image they he could send me so he asked me if we could create a design for him.
With the help of our amazing artist at Hero Patches we created a custom embroidered patch with a shark going through a soccer ball and in metallic threading the word ” Sharks.” We used 100% embroidery coverage on these custom logo patches and put an iron-on backing on the back of the soccer patches. Thank you to Kevin and The Sharks for allowing me to be your custom patch hero!
