Not sure where this should go...but is anyone using any companies to make custom patches for their company that can be sewn onto a race suit? Anyone got any recommendations for a company who is inexpensive, decent turnaround, and you don't have to order 500 at one time? Thanks!!

Good question, i had the same one.

I would like to put my name, blood type and emergency contact info on a patch, but i am guessing that you cant sew into a fire suit? Is this correct?

Do they make patch that iron on?

Thanks

Umm...I know I have seen iron on patches.....but I didn't think you could iron onto a firesuit? That gives me another question, then.....how DO you attach patches to your firesuit? :confused:

You can also try Hellion Industries Clothing in Glendale. Talk to Shawn. He got us in contact with someone who did our suits and they did a great job. 623.842.4355 Tell him Mark Acuna sent ya his way.

Yeah SHawn and the Hellion crew are good dudes, and fellow racers, they do all my tshirts.

I was looking at patches because in the past the embroidery work we have had done was outrageously expensive (on pit shirts)......I agree - looks alot better, but I'm still very much on a budget and just trying to find alternatives I can afford while still trying to show my sponsors some luv.....;)

Thanks for the info everyone - I'll be checking out these places!! :)

Go to zltmxid.com. They can do exactly what you are looking for and not have to make 500 of them. Check the links below. We have used them for some of our motocross stuff.

I don't think it has to do with RULES, but rather manufacturere safety guidelines.

The Sparco suit I just got came with a book that has a section about this.

NO IRON ON - Ironing a fire suit will damage it's fire resistance.

Sewn on patchs must be sewn on with fire retardant thread, and the back of the patch SHOULD also be fire retardant. Futhermore, it is only to be sewn into the outer most layer of the suit.

In my opinion, totally NOT worth it. Make some t-shirts for crew to wear, leave the fire suit alone. It's life support / saftey equipment.... don't mess with it. Since I have a black suit, I got a RAD reflective orange safety vest for when out of the car at night. I think I might make it like a boyscout vest and put the necessary logos on it instead.

(I'm just a rookie though, what the hell do I know?) :)

I was thinking more for ME (and the other drivers) so if an accident occurs our names, bloodtypes and allergies are right the on our chest.
