Membership in a club or organization entails a screening process that could be lax or rigid. A school club requires future members to sign up, fill out application forms, and possibly go through interviews with club heads and moderators. A non-government organization or foundation requires a similar application process but also obliges applicants to have reputable backgrounds and social work experiences.
A corporate or government organization holds more strict screenings of applicants and even requires a series of tests to be passed. Other organizations even compel that applicants are passers of national certification examinations. Whether lenient or strict, the screenings are vital in the selection of applicants who will be accepted in a group.
The exclusivity in a group is not only exhibited by its screening process:
Once accepted, members are expected to abide by the rules and regulations of their group. They have to be able to produce remarkable output. They must make use of their talents for the betterment of their group. They also have to respect their leaders and cooperate with fellow members. Although it is mostly work more than play in organizations, members, more often than not, form friendships and build bonds. Their professional relationships grow into friendly or almost familial relations.
Thus, being part of a group becomes a source of pride:
It shows that one belongs to a reputable organization. It exhibits that a member has found people who share his interests or advocacies. When members take pride in belonging to their group, they ensure to make such feeling known in anecdotes or posts in social media.
Other members even literally wear their hearts on their sleeves by using apparel with the name or logo of their group. When members want their group name or logo to stand out in their apparel, they tend to go for embroidered patches because of the embossed effect caused by the embroidery. Embroidered patches can also be sown into any type of fabric, making it more practical for group members to use it.
Custom patches are used by members of a group to identify themselves with the organization they belong to whether it is a school club, sports team, academic institution, community association, church organization, business, corporation, the police force, fire department, or military. Custom patches are usually sown into uniforms but they can also be sown into jackets and duffle bags.
A patch with simple embroidery may just be smaller than the palm of a hand but it holds so much more relevance for group members. It stands for the fact that the members successfully got through the application process and are legitimized components of their group.
Others even celebrate the milestones of their groups by having patches made for occasions such as anniversaries. Custom patches, in this case, are not just used to signify identity but also to establish the legacy of a group. Some patches include a group’s date of establishment while other patches even detail the number of years a group has been in existence. The date of establishment or the duration of existence is accompanied by the name or logo of the said group. The group’s slogan is also included in some instances.
