Whether you’re talking about Boy Scout patches, Girl Scout patches, Merit Badges, patches for Brownies, patches for Cub Scouts, or some other type of scout patch entirely, at times it can feel like the patches are the uniform.

When you’re talking about such a high number of patches and kids are part of the equation, you need to balance quality with cost. That’s where we come in.

Boy Scout Patches/Girl Scout Patches are Important

To understand how important patches are to scouts, you need to think about how scouting works. Every week, the same small group of kids meets together. For Cub Scouts, this group is called their Den. Once a month, all the local Dens get together for a big meeting.

At these meetings, they participate in activities and talk about the different things they’re going to do, which can include the following:

·        Camping

·        Hiking

·        Doing science experiments

·        Volunteering

·        Selling cookies

·        Racing model cars

·        Taking field trips

All the activities they do together (and apart) are designed to help scouts learn new things, gain new skills, practice teamwork, gain leadership abilities, and so on.

We Supply Scout Patches for all 135 Merit Badges and More

One of the big ways that scouts are encouraged to participate is the ability to earn badges. If you show a certain level of knowledge and skill in a particular area, you get a badge. The Boy Scouts of America, for example, have over 135 Merit Badges that can be earned and displayed on a scout’s uniform, allowing scouts to tout their achievements to others.

Additionally, there are various general levels of scouting that can be obtained, and each of these comes with an identifying badge as well. Both things mean that scout uniforms are constantly changing and evolving.

How Scout Patches from Houston Embroidery Service Can Save You Money

When looking for scout patches, you need to think about how they’ll be used and who is using them. Specifically, while you want patches that look great, you also want to account for the fact that scouts frequently change their patches.

What does this mean in terms of quality vs. price?

Looks over Durability for Scout Patches

To get a good-looking patch, you need to use high-quality embroidery machines. We use machines from well-respected Japanese company Barudan, while many of our competitors use Chinese machines that just aren’t as good.

Where we save on money is the thread. Our default is to use lower-cost Chinese thread that looks just as good rather than far more expensive Madeira thread.

Choose the Right Backing for Scout Patches

There are several backing options you can choose—Velcro, adhesive, sew-on, and iron-on. Since scouts change out their patches every few months, we believe iron-on is the best choice for most people.

With iron-on scout patches, the stickiness will eventually wear off if you just stop ironing them. So, with a little careful planning around when your scout’s new patches need to be added, the job is easy.

Pay By Stitch Count for Scout Patches

Prices for embroidered patches are based on the number of stitches used. But this can vary greatly by design. For example, one patch might have 10,000 stitches, while another has 20,000.

Most companies automatically charge based on the highest stitch count—but not us. We price every embroidered patch by the number of stitches, which can save a lot if you’re placing an order for several different types of scout patches.

Putting your children in the scouts isn’t cheap, but it’s an investment in their future. They get to learn about nature, science, technology, teamwork, helping others, responsibility, and so on.

Just because it is a good investment, though, doesn’t mean you shouldn’t be smart about your money. At Houston Embroidery Service, we help you get quality patches while still staying within your budget.
