The Artex Group's Guide to Charity Patches


The Artex Group’s Guide to Charity Patches


Custom patches are a great way to spread awareness for your cause. By choosing a professionally made custom patch you can proudly & boldly display your charitable organization’s emblem. Of course, there is a multitude of benefits to be had from creating a custom charity patch. Let’s look at a few good reasons why a patch from the Artex Group might be the perfect choice for your charity or fundraiser.

Custom Patches Act As A Uniform For Your Volunteers

Custom patches are an effective means to recognize the contributions of your volunteers. Affixing a patch to a shirt or adding them to a grab bag will make your volunteers feel like their efforts are being acknowledged and appreciated. This simple gesture is great for boosting morale.

A custom patch can also be added to a shirt or vest as part of a uniform, which can help create cohesion among your volunteers. Such a thing will help to attract attention to your cause and give your organization a sense of professionalism. This will certainly help with advertising your charitable efforts and send a clear message about the importance of your fundraiser. Of course, this can also assist with your marketing and improve the name recognition of your charity.

Improve Your Marketing Efforts With Custom Charity Patches

Speaking of marketing, patches are always a great addition to your marketing strategy. A custom patch will allow you to brand your cause and promote your charity or fundraiser. An appealing design can help draw attention to your organization and give you an opportunity to potentially attract new volunteers. These patches also make great handouts that your volunteers can give away.

This is especially important if you have an upcoming charity event that you would like to create a patch for in order to raise awareness. We recommend using a short, catchy, and easy to remember name to help ensure that your event name spreads quickly. Creating an event patch is an excellent tie-in to your social media strategy that gives your digital following a physically tangible product that they can use. You could even go one step further and contact social media influencers in your community and provide them with patches and other promotional items to give away in exchange for an endorsement.

If your organization has a street team, there’s also the possibility of distributing patches to include with your promotional materials. This simple method will allow you to advertise your charity and generate some easy marketing through word of mouth. You may even find yourself with a few new volunteers as a result.

Custom Patches Are Cost-Effective
Perhaps the most compelling reason to order custom patches for your fundraiser is the low cost of designing and manufacturing a patch. Our custom patches are available at competitive prices that can make this a very attractive option for your charity or fundraiser. If you need any assistance with designing a custom patch for your charity or fundraiser please reach out to the pros at the Artex Group! Since 2002 we’ve helped create over 75 million custom patches.

Creating The Best Patches For Your Cycling Club


Creating The Best Patches For Your Cycling Club


If you enjoy the freedom and exercise that cycling offers you’ve no doubt joined a bicycle club to spend time with like-minded folks in your community. It’s likely that your club or team has a logo they’ve created and it only makes sense to create custom patches. Let’s take a look at some of the best tips and insights for creating stellar custom cycling patches for your organization.

Pick Your Patch Material

Putting your cycling club’s logo on a patch is a simple process. You simply need to determine which material is going to work best for the logo that you have. For example, if you have a complex logo with lots of little details we recommend a woven patch. If you frequently find yourself cycling in inclement weather or you’re part of a mountain biking club we’d recommend going with a PVC patch. If your logo is a simple design then use an embroidered patch. Finally, if you need a photographic level of detail then go with a dye sublimated patch.

Choose Your Patch Backing

Your patch backing will be based on how you plan to affix your patch. If your team is going to sew on their patches we recommend using a plastic backing. This is the most common style of patch backing and tends to be very economical. However, if you plan to use these patches on a bag or need a quick-to-remove patch consider using velcro. Finally, if you only need your patch for limited use, such as an upcoming event or competition, then use a self-adhesive patch backing. We also offer magnetic backing for patches if you want a patch that you could attach to a bike frame or other metallic surface.

Designing Your Logo

If you don’t have a logo for your bike team yet, or you’re uncertain about the design don’t worry. We have a staff of experienced graphic designers that can assist you with creating a logo for your bicycle club. We’ll make sure to create a graphic with an eye-catching level of detail that will be sure to pop when you hit the trail, road, or bike path.

Common Myths About Velcro Patches, Officially Busted


Common Myths About Velcro Patches, Officially Busted

It’s no secret that custom Velcro patches can be incredibly beneficial whether you’re using them for your business organization, volunteer group, or event. However, there are some common myths and misconceptions surrounding velcro patches that could be keeping you from taking advantage of these benefits yourself.

To help set the record straight, here are some of the most common myths about custom velcro patches officially busted so you can feel confident the next time you place your order.

Myth: Velcro Patches Aren’t as Durable

Custom velcro patches aren’t sewn onto clothing or ironed on. However, this doesn’t make them any less durable. In fact, custom Velcro patches are actually incredibly durable because they can be removed from their clothing. When in use, the patch is held securely in place by the velcro. When not in use, the patch can be carefully removed from the garment so the garment can be cleaned. That means you don’t have to worry about the colors of the patch fading or the patch itself wearing away because of hard use.

Myth: Velcro Patches Can Damage Your Clothes

Custom velcro patches are actually one of the best patch types if you’re worried about damaging your clothes. Because the patches can be removed at will, you don’t have to worry about doing any sewing or ironing. This also works great if the clothing you need your patch to be attached to isn’t iron-friendly. Velcro patches are especially great if you only need to wear patches for a certain period of time, such as for an event, and you want to reuse the clothing later.

Myth: Velcro Patches Aren’t as Versatile

Just like custom iron-on patches and sewn-on patches, custom Velcro patches come in a wide variety of styles and sizes. Whether you’re looking to make your sports team stand out or you need your custom velcro patches to be cut a specific way for volunteer firefighters or police officers, velcro patches can be customized to meet your unique needs.

If you’re looking for custom velcro patches for your organization, event, or team, the Artex Group has you covered. We offer both custom velcro patches and apparel for your custom patches so you can find everything you need all in one place. To learn more about our custom Velcro patches, custom iron-on patches, and more, contact the Artex Group today.
