Benefits of Having Patches4less Embroidered Patches on Our Company Uniforms

Gone are the days when we all have frowned upon the idea of wearing uniforms at the office. The advent of companies specializing in embroidered patches, like Patches4less, paved the way for these patches to gain a niche in the corporate world. Today, we can wear our uniforms with pride not just because we work for well-established companies, but also because we represent them through uniforms that are made more tasteful and elegant with patches.

Security of Image and Positive Reputation

Embroidered-PatchesWhile there are numerous companies offering customized
embroidered patches, we must carefully consider how their methods would secure our company’s image and continuously build a positive reputation for us. For example, Patches4less welcomes client ideas, but we also provide recommendations based on what we believe would elevate their company’s image. This is why we greatly appreciate customization requests that include what a client wants the patch design to embody. Is it the company’s mission and vision? Or is it their company values?  Based from the client’s original idea, Patches4less may suggest the type of thread, color palette and art to be used on the patch. Then, these suggestions are combined with the client’s idea and purpose of adding patchwork on their uniforms. Of course, this is only executed upon the client’s agreement. More than anything else, we would like to provide clients the flexibility they need, especially when it comes to the choice of colors, fabrics and fonts.

If our client needs to advertise their company, we also make sure that our design helps them implement this rather expensive business endeavor through their uniforms. Patches4less clients can request adding company details on the patchwork. These details depend on where on the uniform the client wants the patchwork to be place, which is usually on the front and backs sides.

Increased Professional Image

For many years now, uniforms with embroidered patches have been helping companies increase their professional image. Thankfully, most companies offering these small pieces of artwork strive to continue this legacy. Because in reality, just wearing a plain top or shirt while working doesn’t conjure a sense of professionalism. Try putting a salesperson wearing a collared top without any details of where he works alongside a man working the same job, but wearing a top with his company’s patch. Even before anyone of them begins delivering his sales pitch, we are most likely to turn our attention to the guy wearing the uniform with a patch.


This is not an issue with embroidered patches. We can still promote our company brands and services, and make a bold statement about our reliability and trustworthiness through patches without changing the entire design and fabric of our uniforms. Most companies, including Patches4less, can apply patches on fleece sweatshirts, track jackets, cotton shirts and denim tops. They can also be attached on hats, bag and aprons. Other companies may have reservations on applying patchwork on certain materials though. So, a bit of research could help us decide on a company that can offer a suitable patch or method of patching based on our uniform’s design and fabric.

Promotion of Personalized Service

A personalized service is also one thing that we provide our customers when we put embroidered patches on our uniforms. Instead of name pins, we can put name patches on the top region of our uniforms, especially if our jobs require face-to-face customer interaction. Name patches help us gain a first good impression from our customers. Because a name patch gives them an idea that you belong to the company, they become more trusting of us. This compels us and our customer to build a professional yet a friendly connection. Without us noticing it, the recognition we receive from our name patches helps us become more responsible for our actions. Responsibility would then turn into confidence, inspiration and then improved performance.

Embroidered patches have come a long way in the corporate world. It’s good to note that a lot of companies are now recognizing the benefits of having patches on their employees’ uniforms. It really is amazing how a small and humble embroidered artwork could influence the image of their companies and even the overall performance of their staff. These things are continuously happening to those who believe in the artwork, and it’ll just be easy if we all just start recognizing their advantages.


Brand Representation Of Motivational Speakers

We believe that motivational speakers should speak in a way that inspires people emotionally. But what if you’re assigned to speak on behalf of a company that is need of promotion and advertising?

For a speaker to fully showcase a particular brand in the process of motivational speaking, it’s a must to give proper and precise helpful information to listeners and be interesting at the same time. Speech is also considered a form of art. It is like painting with the use of words. Being a good public speaker is not something found in a person’s genes, it is a skill. And skills can be learned.

Here are some tips for brand representation of motivational speakers:

Being chosen to join other motivational speakers for a certain brand or company is a wonderful opportunity to not only promote a product or service, but also promote yourself. Promoting yourself does not necessarily mean you are selling yourself. This is figuratively speaking. Meaning, you sell yourself to the audience in a way that the result after your speech is that they’ll be interested with what you are promoting. You can also talk about your passions, what made you successful and how your lifestyle is like now and relate it with your topic or brand.

Motivational SpeakerThe delivery of your speech should be in a way that is highly informative yet not overly promotional. Remember that “knowledge is power.” To do this, you should state the positive features of the said product and service and how consumers would benefit from it. This way you are boosting the said product or service. And what way to know more about your topic? You read and research about it. You need wisdom regarding the company’s product or service.

Another way to properly deliver your speech is by testimony. If you tried the product or service yourself, then it can serve as something to indicate that what you are talking about is true and from your own experience. This way, it would not only be informative, but also truthful. This will make your speech more believable. Sugar-coating can be of little use. But deliberately lying about your topic is not recommended. Your speech should be based from your experience. Otherwise, the motivational speaking will lose its essence.

Knowing your audience or target market is also essential. You need to know how to please different groups of people because your audience will vary for sure. Some people also appreciate humor. Adding humor can make the discussion livelier and more interesting. However, you need to make sure the topic is relevant and can be associated with the target audience. Knowing your audience can also help you to prepare in advance how you will deliver your speech. Here, you get more information about successful motivational speakers.

For further information, writing is another way to make sure that the audience will gain the necessary information about your topic. Handing newsletters, handouts, and flyers about the product or service of the company you represent helps them remember the speech. This also helps them get the additional information necessary or things you’ve missed out on during your speech. Having a website or blog can also be useful. This would make you improve your skills and at the same time you’ll have good public relations. This will also allow you to have more motivational speaker engagement opportunities.

As we usually say, practice makes perfect. You can practice public speaking to shape your skills further and overcome any lingering stage fright you may have. Some people even attend classes that teach such. You can also practice through making your family and friends an audience. Having someone listen to you can help point out any suggestions in the way you deliver your speech. And when you conduct motivational speeches over and over, then you will be able to enhance your speech and communication skills. Another way to practice is offer free motivational speaking to people in any local organizations.

Be open to feedback. Whether it is positive or negative, look at it from a positive perspective. Think of ways to improve your skills more and how to avoid negative feedback next time. For positive ones, listen and pay attention well to them because you can use them to post on your website, blogs and on your printed materials. Just like what is said above, it can be used as promoting yourself.

Another important aspect in delivering a speech is to dress smartly. Remember, you are among the motivational speakers and therefore, you must be presentable because the audience’s focus would be on you. Formal clothes are recommended because this will signify the seriousness of the topic. The color of your outfit should not be too flashy so as not to distract your listeners. Their main focus should be about our speech and not your fashion preference.

Thinking positively helps you speak positively. This is essential because what you believe in determines how you behave. From the word itself, “motivational”, you are to encourage people with the use of your positive outlook.


What Goes Into The Making of A Lapel Pin

Those ubiquitous lapel pins are everywhere, but have you ever wondered how they are made? They may seem commonplace and ordinary as everyday objects, but once you learn about the meticulous process that goes into making them; from designing, molding, stamping, soldering, polishing, plating, coloring to packaging, you will greatly appreciate each finished piece as a work of art.

The process starts with choosing a pin design. Work with the pin manufacturer in choosing the best type of materials and finish that will go well with your chosen design.  The best types of materials used in pin making are as follows:

Cloisonne has the highest quality. This technique has been used for centuries, since the time of pharaohs in Ancient Egypt, to decorate jewelries. In the 14th century it spread to China, where they perfected the art of embellishing large vessels such as vases and teapots.

Soft Enamel is comparable to cloisonne, but is less expensive. It is a good alternative for those who want a beautiful glossy finish at an affordable price.

Die struck is a great choice if you want your pin to have an engraved sophisticated all metal look. The result is a clean, understated yet elegant looking pin.

Off-set digital is a method similar to the one used in printing magazines. Pins with very complex, detailed designs such as paintings or photographs, requiring an unlimited number of colors, are best made using this method.

Photo etched enamel is similar to the soft enamel method. But photo etching works best with far more detailed designs because it allows a wider spectrum of colors to choose from. The resulting pin also weighs amazingly lighter.

Silk-screen is a process also used to create images on T-shirts. Blocks of color are applied one at a time. Although similar to the off-set digital process,silk-screen is the best option when specific requirements have to be met,  such as in company logos and trademarks.

Lapel PinThe final pin design is inked and colored and transferred to a sheet, marked   with the specifications of size and features. The pin manufacturer then makes a mold based on the outline of the pin.

The mold will be placed on a machine and will be used to stamp the individual pins onto a metal sheet. Copper or brass is softer and more pliable which makes it easier to stamp elaborate designs.

In the final stage, the copper or brass metals are plated with a more durable metal such as nickel, silver, gold and platinum depending on the chosen design and budget.

The required attachments are applied to each pin and the finishing touches are made. The pins are then polished, colored and checked for quality before they are packaged and shipped to the customer.

Want more bling and pizzazz on your pins? As far as pin collectors are concerned, there are extra features that add value and appeal to pins.

Danglers are little charm-like objects, such as bells, jewels or tiny figures that hang from a small hoop on the bottom of the pins. They dangle which makes for a highly noticeable pin.

Slider is what you call a piece of metal attached at the bottom of the pins. This attached piece can slide back and forth for extra fun.

Spinner is a movable piece is attached by a bolt or screw through the center to the pins. This attachment works like a pinwheel, spinning round and round.

Blinker refers to the battery-powered LED light added at the back of the pin. This makes your pin stand out even more. However, batteries are not replaceable, it  may stop working once batteries run out.
