Title: Source for patches
Post by: draaven on June 30, 2015, 07:06:49 PM
Hey guys...

Anybody have a source for US FLAG patches with hook backs? Probably just embroidered/fabric, but PVC might be ok if I can find it cheap. I am looking for military colors in just a standard size.

Might also need a custom patch done in the future, but for now my main concern is flags.

I have been searching and searching and haven't been able to come up with much. Any ideas?


Thanks!

These dudes make good patches. One of my suppliers had some made for promos.

I don't have a source for cheap flag patches, but if you want to go custom, Flex Systems (http://www.flexsystems.com/) is a good source for PVC patches, labels, and all kinds of other promotional items made in the USA

They don't carry any stock as everything is custom made to order, but can highly recommend Falls Creek Outfitters. http://www.fallscreekoutfitters.com/ (http://www.fallscreekoutfitters.com/)

I know they will be able to do you patches in various sizes/shapes/colours as required.

Seriously stoked with how awesome these Falls Creek Outfitter patches turned out. The size is very small as I wanted them to fit on 50mm (2 inch) velcro patches, but still be detailed. The back and forth emails nutting everything out was incredibly appreciated, and the expertise that the team showed to nail the design was impressive. I am on the other side of the world so to receive a parcel which was virtually identical to the PDF design I sent makes me a very happy man.

Seriously cannot recommend them enough: Walter Skryzpek 814-771-7019. Feel free to mention that I referred you (Dave from BOgear).

FYI this photo is a close up so you can see the detail - but when viewed from a metre away you cannot see individual stitches and it looks INSANELY good!
