Steps For Creating Your Custom PVC Patches

Design Your Patch

Make a sketch or graphic design as the foundation for your personalized PVC patch. This can be done using graphic design software, where the desired artwork, logo, or text is rendered to the desired size and shape. Think about how PVC's special qualities, such as its toughness and adaptability, might improve your design. Consider the dimensions, forms, hues, and minute particulars that will make your vision come to life.

Mold Creation

Once the design is finalized, a mold is created using the design as a reference. The mold is typically made of metal and is precision-cut to replicate the exact shape and details of the design.

Bring Your Design to Life

Liquid PVC material, often in various colors, is injected into the mold. The mold is then heated to cure the PVC, solidifying it into the desired shape. The process may involve multiple injections for multi-colored designs. After the PVC has cured and taken the shape of the mold, the patch is cooled down to harden further. Once cooled, the patch is removed from the mold, and any excess PVC material is trimmed or cleaned up.

Production and Quality Assurance

Before the patches are shipped out, they undergo rigorous quality control checks to ensure that they meet the desired specifications. This includes inspecting the design details, colors, and overall quality of the finished patches.

Receive Your Patches

Once production is complete, your custom PVC patches will be expertly wrapped and delivered right to your door. Unwrap them with excitement and marvel at the durability and visual impact of your personalized PVC patches.
