Create Custom Patches to Honor Your Volunteers

November 29th, 2012

Volunteers contribute to the success of many businesses, schools, clubs, and organizations.  Without these individuals, there would simply be too much work to do.  If you are in charge of recruiting and retaining volunteers, we have an idea for you.  Why not use custom patches to thank them for their contribution of hard work and servitude.

Patches make ideal gifts for a number of different reasons.  First of all, they’re customized to reflect the values and mission of the customer.  That’s what makes the patches personal and meaningful for the volunteers.  People will love having something that helps them remember their experience volunteering.

Next, patches are available in a variety of sizes, shapes, styles, and colors.  You can even choose the style of backing that best meets your volunteers’ needs.  Last but not least, patches are visible.  Because they’re attached to an article of clothing, hat or bag, you increase the exposure of your business, school, club or organization.  People will see the patches and equate them with the type of work you and your volunteers do.  This is a great way to promote your business, non-profit, university or youth club.

Volunteer patches boost esteem and get people excited about helping out your company, campus or cause.  Create a personal memento for the people who donate their time, resources, and money.  We’ll be more than happy to help you every step of the way throughout the ordering process.

Include custom patches at your next awards ceremony.  Visit http://www.patchesrus.com to learn more about the ordering process.  While you’re there, don’t forget to take a look at our gallery for inspiration.  Email your request to info@patchesrus.com or call 1-800-257-9664 toll-free to speak to a Patches R Us representative.  Your satisfaction is of utmost importance to us.
