What machines and technology are used in making your Motorcycle Patches?

Our Motorcycle patches are made using the best technologies you can find in making embroidery patches. Despite the availability several brands of embroidery machines in the market which are cheaper, we use the best and costliest amongst all to make sure you’re fully satisfied. We use the Barudan Machine which is known and respected throughout the industry for quick work, ability to handle high volumes, and remarkable detail with consistency. After you’ve requested for the patches, we design and upload it to this machine which puts out the design on a piece of cloth. Visit this page to find out more about the Barudan Machines.

What is the best backing method for applying your Motorcycle patches?

Our Motorcycle patches are designed to accommodate any type of backing you may need. Some of these methods include; Velcro, Iron on, and Sew-On. However, the 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 Vests and Jacket

In the United States of America as well as the United Kingdom, special protective clothing like jackets, gloves and pants and recommended for bikers but none of these equipments are required by law except for the helmet. Since our Motorcycle patches are designed for application on vests and jackets, we’ll focus on providing more information about these two.

Jackets: Biker’s jackets are typically made of leather or specialized man-made fabrics like Kevlar or cordura.  They 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.

A good motorcycle jacket is supposed to 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.

Vests: Without doubt the biker’s vest is one of the most enduring icons in motorcycle history starting as far back as the Second World War. It is designed to provide you with some level of protection even though the protection given might not be comprehensive. Biker vests come in handy for most bikers when the temperatures go up. It is very comfortable to ride your bike wearing those thick leather jackets during winter, however as the summer emerges, you’ll definitely feel very uncomfortable riding with them which is where the vests come in.

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

Our Major Buyers and End-Users

While these patches are used to decorate vests and jackets, it often conveys a message to other fellow bikers. 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 Motorcycle 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 our buyers are individuals who belong to a particular motorcycle club to customize their Motorcycle patches in guidelines to their club patches. While sometimes, these clubs come to us to create special Motorcycle patches that will made available for all their members.

History of Motorcycle patches

The history of Motorcycle 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.

Motorcycle Patches: Leather Jackets and Iron-on Patches don’t mix!

Leather Jackets and vests aren’t just stylish or classy; they command respect especially when you are truly a biker. It’s a self expression showing your experience and adventures as a `biker. Without doubt, they are the most enduring icons of in motorcycle history.

As a biker, you should have known by now that getting a perfect leather jacket for your rides is as important as applying patches on them since you would want to customize them with some terrific looking patches or custom motorcycle patches. However, you don’t want to sew on these patches since you prefer the easy way out. Instead of taking the pain to thread-on your patches to your precious jackets, you go ahead to get custom iron patches? Well you’re WRONG.

The combination of iron on patches or motorcycle patches with iron on backing on leather is the worst marriage you can ever think of as you’ll either end up not having the patch attached or damage your jacket. The iron temperature needed to melt the glue used on iron on patches is too high and when it’s not hot enough, the leather will become slippery for the glue since they were not meant for leather surfaces therefore your patch won’t adhere. However if you insist and try to raise the temperature, you’ll end up scorching or burning your leather. You might also think, since leather isn’t working, you can try the faux leather but that would be a goose chase since this type of leather is prone to melting under the high temperature needed to glue the wax. If you are also thinking about escaping this by getting a nylon jacket, the same thing will definitely play out.

You don’t have to go through all these stress with heat and ruining your jackets when there is a simple way out. If you really want to get your motorcycle patches attached to your leather garment, faux or nylon, the only safe method will be to patiently use your thread and needle because iron on application are not meant for these materials. If you feel it’s a stress for you to sew on the patch yourself, it’s easy to find a local tailor or seamstress who can do that for you for just a small fee.

However, before you start paying a tailor down the street to sew on your motorcycle patches (embroidered patches), make sure you get the best quality that can last through the harsh and mild weather while you ride. Engage the services of embroidery companies like Houston embroidery to get yourself the best.
