    current patch storage

    Post by bhmilitarycollector84 on Fri Apr 23, 2010 11:21 pm

    i have been getting an increasing amount of acu and dcu patches , with velcro on them

    theater made and military issue

    and i have noticed , for a while now
    the velcro will stick to the patch material if they are stored in together and come in contact ,

    here are a few things i have dont to combat my patches sticking together , and pulling the materials loose

    1st thing i started doing was , patches that are the same , ( 1st infantry for example ) put the velcro together , patches back to back , they will sick and makes them easier to store

    2nd , when i have them small plastic bags , that are just allitle bigger then the pathces ,
    makes it easy to orginize , and you can put a small card in there with what the patches are ,

    3rd , the baseball card shop have these small , meduim , large and extra large hard plasic sleves , they are really thick , and you can slide patches in them

    there are just some of my suggestions , and things i have done , just wanted to pass the info on to help other forum members

    Topic moved to the proper section.

    Good tips. I've seen many of guys display their patches in riker cases, some even pinned their patches on the cork board. But for best storage, is to have a binder with clear sleeves from what I've seen.

    Cheers!

    o yeah , thanx for reminding me merc

    my 4th method for my patches is , a 3 ringer dinder , and u suse baseball card sheet , not you cant store larger patches , like 1st cav , 2nd infantry , and so forth , but the regualr sized , 1st infantry and patches that are in thate size area can be stored in those , and it makes it easy to keep , and orginize ,

    if anyone would like pics of my methods please ask
    hope everyones have a great day

    thanx

    Ben, you might consider a cd/dvd binder, a bit bigger than baseball cards, can store lots of patches even large size in these. The velcro backing can really screw up other patches if they come in contact with the embroidered side.

    Just a suggestion but if you are going to use the plastic sheets that store sports cards buy the ones made by pro guard. A bit more expensive but they have protective qualities. Lost a nice sports card collection once by using the cheap sheets. Dont know what the effect of the cheap sheets would be on patches but why take the risk.

    I place them in plastic baggies or in the sports card sleeves. I cut out the pocket of the sports card sleeve and then use rolled SCOTCH tape to attach them to a comic book/magazine backing board. They are then slid into comic book/magazine sleeves and placed in a file cabinet.
