Printed Patches are suddenly okay :(

So i was browsing a bit through official Merch and more and more i see these cheap printed Patches sold in official online stores and from labels (rarely by the bands themself).

I get it, woven Patches are expensive...but how come musicians don't care anymore about their Merch? I think the more official stores and labels sell these the more it gets accepted by the mainstream.
This shit just makes me angry as someone who is passionate about the music and art. Would it help to contact musicians and tell them, the stuff sold with their Name is cheap shit and looks ass? Mortiis even sells this cheap crap in his official online store (besides one or two woven great ones).

I know this is really nitpicky but i just value good merch. And i know theres tons of topics about printed patches... but never before have i felt that it's becoming a cheap way for labels to exploit the customers.
