How do you produce the Cub Scout Patches?

Our Cub Scout Patches and custom patches are produced using computerized embroidery machines. A logo or text can be embroidered with embroidery thread on any piece of cloth by an embroidery machine. In this procedure, the badge is first designed on a computer program called Wilcom Embroidery Digitizing Software which creates a digital embroidery file. The file is sent to the embroidery machine using a USB or data cable; then the machine reads the file and makes the badge on the fabric. Visit this page to find out more about the Wilcom Embroidery Digitizing Software.

What is the backing method for your Cub Scout Patches?

Our Cub Scout Patches are designed to accommodate any type of backing method. However, we use the iron on backing option by default to reduce cost of application except on special demand by the parents or supplier. With a simple and easy heat press from a home iron, these patches can easily be attached or removed.

 To attach Cub Scout Patches on scout uniforms, you will need a heat seal machine (dry iron) and a flat clean and dry surface. The iron on backing involves a thin layer of special glue that fastens on the fabric when heated using dry iron and hardens when it cools off. (Please visit this page to read more on Iron on Backing) To get your Embroidered Boy Scout Merit Patches applied;

  • Set your heat seal machine between 175 C to 185 C depending on the strength of fabric
  • Place the patch on the desired position
  • Place a thick 100% Cotton twill over the fabric
  • Press on the iron for 20 – 25 seconds
  • Press the inside-out turned part of the garment for another 15 seconds and allow the fabric to cool off.

The Cub Scout Uniform

The Cub Scout has an approved uniform for its members and volunteers as a means of identification.  The Cub Scout uniform is an important part of the Scouting program since scouting was first started. The uniform identifies the youth and adults with Cub Scouts and gives them a sense of belonging to the den, the pack, and the Boy Scouts of America. Scouts are expected to wear their uniforms to all den meetings, pack meetings, and special pack activities and our collection of Cub Scout patches are designed for application on some of these uniforms. There are two types of uniform designed for the cub scouts, the Field Uniform, and the Activity Uniform. The Field uniform consists of the official blue Cub Scout shirt, neckerchief, slide, a cap, blue belt with a Cub Scout buckle which is optional with Scout pants or optionally, skorts for ladies. While the Activity uniform often informally referred to as class B uniform consists of a custom T-shirt and Scout pants. Each of the club ranks have a different design for the neckerchiefs which identifies the rank a Cub Scout belongs to. However, the award Cub Scout patches are designed to be attached on the blue Cub Scout shirts.

History of Cub Scout Association

The Cub Scout couldn’t have existed without the emergence of the Boy Scouts as they are programs associated with scouting for the young children between the ages of 5 and 12 who are too young to join the Boy Scouts. The wolf cub Scheme as it was called in United Kingdom was started in 1916 by the Boy Scouts Association after their nine years of existence. The Wolf Cub was created to accommodate many young boys who wanted to be scouts but was too young to join the association.

During the first years of the cub association, many younger boys were allowed to join several troops while some troops set up an unofficial junior scout troops. In 1916, the name officially outlined in the articles by the Headquarters Gazzette – a then regular journal for scout leaders was “Junior Scout” but Robert Baden-Powell, the first chief scout had something different in mind. He didn’t want a watered down Boy Scout program rather an entirely different scheme with a distinct name, different programs and a unique identity. So in the same year, he published his own outlines for the scheme and it was to be called Wolf cubs. He borrowed the use of the Jungle Book history and universe from his friend Rudyard Kipling as a motivational frame for the scheme. The scheme finally got publicity launch on 24th June 1916 at Buckingham Palace Road Westminster after which Baden wrote a new book for the scheme called the “The Wolf Cub’s Handbook” and presented it in December.

With Vera Barclay’s collaboration, Baden went ahead to devise training programme and badges for the Wolf cub which was later published in the second edition of the handbook. Later on 16th December, the new section was displayed publicly at Caxton Hall, Westminster. Although Kipling was invited, he wasn’t able to attend but sent an apology letter to Baden in which he also praised Baden’s effort in setting up the movement. Therefore till today, Vera Barclay and Baden-Powell are known as the co founders of the Wolf Cubs.

By the 1960s, many organizations from different countries had abandoned or varied the Wolf Cub Jungle Book scheme. Some also changed the name which led to the emergence of the name “Cub Scouts”. However, they retained the jungle stories and cub ceremony as tradition. The Cub membership was originally open to boys only while a parallel female section was setup for young girls and was called the Brownies. This has remained the status quo till date in some places while most member organizations has stated admitting girls to the Cubs and some setting up a co-ed sections with different theme.

The Perfect Trick for applying Cub Scout patches on Uniforms

If your cub just earned an award and you are stuck finding the best way to attach the award Cub Scout patches to the uniform? With a little guide, a couple of tricks and with the provider offering you a range of application options, placing the patches doesn’t have to be difficult.

One of the most common methods is Sew on application method; however it is also tricky when it comes to aligning the patches as they can easily shift while you are battling with the needle and thread and once they do so, realigning them might mean starting afresh. So it’s better to have it done by a tailor or seamstress. Also, the Iron-on application method is extremely popular especially for Scouts. It’s easier because you can place the Cub Scout Patches on the uniform exactly the way you want it and apply heat directly with a home dry iron to melt the adhesive onto the cloth. Although this is a faster process, it is less durable when compared to sew on method.

Here’s the trick you can apply using these two methods; Use the iron-on application to position your Cub Scout Patches on the uniform exactly the way you want them, Once they’re stuck with the adhesive glue after heat press, take your needle and thread and sew on the patch. This will give you a patch that could even outlast the apparel it’s attached on. With any of these methods, you can also add the plastic backing to the standard twill to make the patch stiffer and more durable.

Other attachment options you could also explore for your Cub Scout Patches are the Velcro Backing option especially when you need a less permanent option. This is perfect since using the standard hook and loop from Velcro gives you the ability to quickly remove your Cub Scout Patches whenever you need to. You can also make use of button loops which can easily be slipped on or off your shirt as the situation demands.

The first step to a good Cub Scout patches application is to get a good patch company that will provide you with excellent patches and the right backing option and a guide through the process if you have questions. Houston embroidery is a patch company you can count on.
