What backing method do you use for your biker back patches?

We apply several backing methods in attaching the biker back patches to jackets. Some of these methods include; Velcro, Iron on, and Sew OnThe choice of backing option for each jacket is dependent on the material of the jacket as well as the client. For example, we cannot use the iron on backing on a leather jacket as the hot iron will damage it. The iron on backing involves a thin layer of special glue that fastens on the fabric when heated using dry iron and hardens when it cools off. You can visit this page to read more on Iron on Backing. The Velcro option uses two strips of thin plastic sheets with one covered with tiny loops and the other with tiny flexible hooks that adhere when pressed together and gets separated when pulled apart while the Sew on involves using a sewing machine to attach the patch.

A biker jacket

As part of safety rules for cyclist or bikers, many countries mandate the use of personal protective equipments i.e. protective clothing and helmet while riding motorcycles. These protective clothing include special types of jackets, gloves, boots, and pants. In the United States of America as well as the United Kingdom, none of these equipments are required by law except for the helmet. However, they are recommended for motorcycle riders.  Since our biker back patches are designed for application on the back of these jackets, we’ll focus on providing more information about these special jackets.

The recommended jackets for motorcyclists are typically made of leather or specialized man-made fabrics like Kevlar or cordura.  These jackets are designed with a heavy padding on the elbow, the spine and shoulder regions. This is done to protect the rider in case of an accident since those parts of the body are most likely to receive more impact and injury from the accident.

Buying a motorcycle leather jacket can be stressful and complicated as making the right choice is very important given that your safety is at stake. A good motorcycle jacket is supposed to last you forever and keep from injuries if you make the proper choice. There are many factors to consider when making this purchase. First, you have to factor in cost; the very best of these jackets are not cheap however, they are worth the price if you think about your safety too. Another factor you need to consider is the kind of rider you are, are you a cruise rider or the “motorcross” type? What climate region do you live in; one with high temperatures during summer or are you in a cooler region where winter takes the most of the year? These personal information are also important when making the jacket decisions.

Other important things to consider at the point of purchase while choosing the jacket that suits your riding style is the quality of the jackets, the color and style with respect to the type of biker back patches you would want to use on it. Also try to find out the age of the jacket as old jackets may not offer the same level of protection with the new ones. Check out the armor on the elbows shoulders, chest and spine.

Our Major Buyers and End-Users

The group of people often wearing jackets adorned with our colorful biker back patches are bikers. While these patches are used to decorate their jackets, it often conveys a message to their fellow bikers. For example, any of these patches can tell you about the club a biker belongs to as well as the activities they might have participated in. These clubs often have their motto, members and even a club house. So being any biker without biker back patches or any other patch on their jackets may not be considered a serious club member. Motorcycle clubs are diverse and could be for different groups of people, including, veterans, police officers, families, firefighters and many more. These set of people are governed by stringent rules that bind them together.

Therefore this defines our buyers and end-users; most of them come as individuals who belong to a particular motorcycle club to customize their biker back patches in guidelines to their club patches. While sometimes, these clubs come to us to create special biker back patches that will made available for all their members.

History of biker back patches

The history of biker back patches can be traced to the emergence of the American Motorcyclist Association (AMA) in 1924 as an organizing arm of motorcycle manufactures supported by them to promote motorcycle riding in America. This started with a group of riders coming at AMA events with the name of their group often embroidered on the backs of their jackets or clothing since AMA gave rewards for the best dressed club.

In 1947, after a riot at one the events in Hollister California where the Booze Fighters Motorcycle club made headlines causing uproar, the AMA issued a statement that 99% of their members are law abiding while 1% are outlaws. In response to this, bikers who identified with the outlaw image labeled themselves as “one percenters” putting a top rocker as the name of the club, the center as emblem and bottom rocker to show where they came from. They went ahead to organize their own events doing things opposite to what the AMA does. To this day, 1% patches remains iconic amongst bikers.

Biker Back Patches for Jackets – Know What (Not) to Wear

Whenever someone mentions biker back patches for jackets, the first thing that comes to mind of most people is motorcycle club patches since colorful patches like that placed on the rider’s jacket often indicate the motorcycle club the biker belongs to. However, it is worthy to note that this not always the case. As a biker, this article is meant to educate you on what not to do or wear especially if you don’t belong to any motorcycle club to avoid troubles for breaking some rules.

If you are not a member of a motorcycle of clubs, you might not know that there are defined rules for using biker back patches within those clubs. In some cases breaking those rules can attract unpleasant surprises for you even when you are not a member.

The first thing you should know is the difference between a rider’s club and a motorcycle club. Even though they all ride motorcycles, they are not the same. A rider’s club is a loose organization or group of people who love to ride. Their binding factor could be the fact that they come from the same locality, have the same profession or own same type of bikes for example, the Harley Owners’ Group. This type of club is easy to join and also have few requirements for joining them.

On the other hand, the Motorcycle Clubs have more strict or stringent requirements you must fulfill before joining them. Here, you’re not allowed to wear “just any patch”, patches are earned not bought and earning these patches can sometimes require commitment of time, energy and skills to win. It can even take years to earn a full membership in some of these clubs.

Motorcycle Clubs often wear a classic three-piece biker back patches with the top rocker showing the name of the club, the center piece showing the club’s emblem or logo and the bottom patch showing the club’s home territory with a small rectangle inscribed “MC” on it which means Motorcycle Club. The rider’s club does not have all these details except for a large center emblem and sometimes a top rocker. So if you do not belong to Motorcycle club and you wear bottom biker back patches, you are simply asking for trouble.

Amongst all these rules, the most important thing to note is never to pretend being something you’re not. Do not act like to belong to a Motorcycle Club when you don’t. Be yourself and respect proper patch etiquette at all times. It pays to wear the best patches that can survive any time and weather.
