As we provide custom embroidered patches to be worn by members of the military, police and fire departments, as well as motorcycle clubs, a lot of times we hear the need of our customers of having Velcro backing to their unit patches.Velcro patches allow you to attach them and removing the easily, which proves useful:
- No sewing required
- If you remove the patch from your uniform before washing it, it will last longer (Don’t forget to turn your uniform inside out to prevent the Velcro to attach to other things)
- You can swap the patches easily
Originally, the Velcro patches were used for the Armed Forces so in the event of a soldier being captured, they could remove them from their uniform (name and rank) as not to pass this information to your enemy.
Some Police Department use Reflective Police Patches with Velcro as well.
