OC Sports Unveils Patches in Improved Domestic Decoration Program

In an effort to improve capabilities and expand domestic operations, OC Sports has re-vamped what was previously known as the Domestic Embroidery program to include domestically produced embroidered and sublimated cap patches.Hero-Image_Patches-Now-Available

Patch caps have become highly sought-after headwear and the addition of this program will fuel both our growth and our goal to lead the industry as The Headwear Experts,” says Jim Haworth, President and CEO of Outdoor Cap, the parent company of OC Sports. “It is always important to try new things as we are looking for ways to satisfy our customer’s needs and gain market share!

Customers may choose from the following patch shapes in a variety of sizes: circle, oval, square, and rectangle. Embroidered fabric patch backgrounds come in 14 colors including two licensed camouflage patterns. >All patches are available in either a satin stitch edge or a merrowed edge. There are 12 thread colors to choose from for merrow edge patches.

Merrow refers to a three-thread overlock stitch popularized by the Merrow Machine Company. This creates a quick, finished edge quickly while preventing fraying and unraveling on the edge of the patch.

Patches are going to be a game changer for us,” says OC Sports National Sales Manager, Brad Reagan. “Every time we dive into trends for headgear decoration, we see more and more patches. Having the ability to make our own sublimated and embroidered patches is really going to set us apart. Today’s market is all about speed, convenience, and quality; this program checks all three.”
