If visiting the National Parks this summer is on your agenda, you should consider starting a patch collection to commemorate your trip. Easy to purchase and pack away, custom patches are the perfect memento for people of all ages. They can be sewn or ironed onto a hat, jacket or bag and shared with others. In fact, you can even create a display in your home or office that features your custom patch collection for very little cost. Just get yourself a piece of Styrofoam or cardboard, cover it in bright fabric, and then pin your patches to the board using straight pins.
Patches are different sizes, shapes, styles, and colors which make them the perfect souvenir to bring home with you. Each will depict a different National Park making them fun to collect and give to others. If you have a neighbor who offered to water your plants or feed your cat, you can pick up an extra patch for them. You may even want to get patches for your children’s teachers, your co-workers, and your nieces and nephews. Because they’re lightweight and flat, they can be packed in a suitcase without taking up too much space or adding extra fees.
Here are the different types of patch backings you might find while you’re out sightseeing this summer:
- No Backing
- PVC Backing
- Iron On Backing
- Peel and Stick Backing
- Velcro Backing
- Tuxedo Clip Attachment
- Safety Pin Attachment
Don’t miss out on the opportunity to create a special collection of patches this summer. Go from National Park to National Park collecting the mementos and proudly display them wherever you go. That’s the beauty of custom patches. You’ll find a large variety to choose from whenever you’re on vacation making collecting them fun for the whole family.

National and state park volunteers help repair trails, manage campsites, and perform routine maintenance at wildlife centers in your area. Without their valuable service, you wouldn’t be able to enjoy nature to its fullest extent or beauty. That’s why it’s important to support the volunteers in your community for the jobs that they do each and every day.
One of the ways that you can do just that is by creating custom commemorative patches for each man, woman, and child that participates in clean-up crews, acts as a campground host or mans the visitors centers of your favorite national or state park. These personalized gifts are great for a number of different reasons. First and foremost, they can be used to identify volunteers. This is especially helpful for visitors that are new to the area. They can quickly find the person that they need to contact by looking for a custom patch representing their favorite national or state park.
Next, custom patches boost morale and encourage volunteerism. Because many positions are unpaid, it’s important to recognize the time commitment of each and every volunteer. Every person that helps out at a wildlife preserve or a cavern, keeps the park or attraction in tip-top shape for others to enjoy it. Without their assistance, it could be very difficult to find enough resources to pay employees to keep up with all that needs to be done throughout the season at a national or state park.
Last but not least, custom patches serve as thank you gifts and keepsakes for those involved with volunteerism. This gives them something to take home with them after their time working is up. Because patches come with a variety of different backings, it is easy to remove a patch from a uniform and reapply to another article of clothing belonging to the volunteer.
