There is no Planet B – join the charity event

Patchion is mainly known for the custom badges and embroidered patches work, but are also committed to the challenges we face as a society and as inhabitants of the planet Earth. The time to start taking action against climate change is now, as every year that we miss that opportunity, the temperatures become more extreme, the sea levels more unstable and weather more inhospitable. These changes enable a range of social issues that can become even more problematic in the future.

To increase the awareness of these issues, we created this special round badge featuring our own home in the Solar System. This planet Earth badge comes with the expression “There is no Planet B” over the image of the landmasses of the Americas, Europe, Greenland, and Africa and all the surrounding oceans. A clear statement that if we risk continuing on the same path, there is no other planet to run to when the climate conditions become too extreme to bear. Wear this badge proudly to remember this fact and to push for meaningful change.

The Advantages and Disadvantages of Embroidered Patch Backings

If you’re thinking about purchasing an embroidered patch that is custom made to suit your needs, you must first know what the most ideal backing material for your design. You also need to know the quality of the garment and the length of time the patch backings will last.

Depending on the process, here are the three types of patch backing.

1. Iron-On Backing with Heat Sealing.
2. Velcro Backing with Hooks and Loops.
3. Adhesive Backing with Stick-On or special adhesive.

Before you make a decision, I will write down the advantages and disadvantages associated with each of them.

Iron-On Backing

When you use iron-on backing on your patch, you will only receive a temporary security, because it won't last long. This backing is ideal for ceremonial and casual clothing, but never uses it for any kind of exercises or training. They are mostly used to securely place the patch during the sewing process, so iron-on backing is not the best choice if you want to use it for your active lifestyle purposes.

Advantages and Disadvantages:

  • Ideal for ceremonial purposes.
  • Avoid heavily worn.
  • Avoid frequent cleaning.

Velcro Backing

Velcro backing has two styles of the backing material. Hook-sided for males and Two-sided for both males and females. Hook-sided is the best choice when you need to change new patches frequently or other small adjustments like in the case of military and police uniforms. But if a loop fastener isn't attached on the clothing, we can use two-sided Velcro backing in the process.

As in Iron-on, Velcro backing also has advantages and disadvantages:

  • More durable. You can remove the patches before cleaning so they last longer.
  • Greater Flexibility. The patches can be easily removed and reattached anytime.
  • The only disadvantage is because Velcro patches are attached loosely.

Adhesive Backing

The most popular and familiar kind of backing used for embroidered patches is adhesive backing. It's very convenient and the backing process is very easy. Today, this is the most ideal choice for short-term events. Adhesive backing is the best choice for one-time event, but it has its own disadvantage if you want to use for a long time.

The advantages and disadvantages of adhesive backing are below:

  • Easy to use on any garment.
  • Ideal patch backing for a short time span.
  • Stay away when the patchwork is required to remain permanent.

patch-attachBeacon Patch Attach is a special kind of glue that can offer an extra way to add patches onto clothing and garments. The glue joins any kind of fabric you may think of and there will be no need to sew. It is washable, non-toxic and can be removed easily when subjected to heat. Most important is this glue will keep your patches permanent.

But among all of the methods above, the most ideal of attaching patches is by sewing them onto a garment. When sewn, the patch remains attached on the cloth for a long period of time. Experts claim that it can even last for decades.
