VELCRO Name Tape/Tag

Postby benlane656 » Thu Jun 30, 2016 5:36 pm

Hello,

I am looking for a place in Canada (preferably ON) that sells classic black fabric w/ grey lettering name tapes with hook VELCRO on the rear. 2 1/2 - 4" in length would be ideal as they are for the front of vest. Found a few places online but the manufacturing time seems to be lengthly and shipping costs are crazy for a couple pieces of fabric! If anyone has any leads or suggestions that would be awesome.

www.Labelnet.ca has the standing order for the RCMP velcro name tags and are in Ontario. Check them out.

I have to second CPGear.ca.

I have ordered twice from them and they both times were one week turn around and great custom service. Little hand written note by the person who did the custom embroidery, which was a nice touch.

I'll third CP gear. Their nametapes are good quality, fast production, and reasonable shipping.

I have been wearing my vest internally, and I find that my medal ribbon keeps popping off all of the time. Thinking of trying out the patches, but Inwant to be sure of the quality / colors for the red and blue of the MB medal before I spend 7.50 + shipping per patch x a bunch of work shirts....

There is a member here who wears embroidered ribbons on his external, I assume they came from CP Gear, they looked good.

A buddy of mine makes velcro medal ribbons. They are not embroidered and they look like the pin version. PM me if you like I can pass along contact info.

I have a couple sets of them. They turned out good. Though unfortunately they initially sent me the wrong set. I asked for a GCS with CD, and I got GSM with CD. They fixed it quick though. I was happy with it.

I've ordered name tapes through them for CBSA, and the CF, and they've always been good.

Ordered my CAF ones from them put the Eagle on the wrong side ... derp.. they shouldn't even make that an option. Gave one to my dad and use the others for other crap, but they looked good!
