How To Make Custom Patches
So, you have an idea for your new custom patches, you may even have a direction for your design, and now you’re ready to turn that idea into a patch. What do you do next?
It's simple! Just click the "Free Quote" button anywhere on the site, and our art team will get right to work crafting an original design from your ideas, and you'll have your first free proof ready and in your inbox within 48 hours.
When we create patches, our goal is to create a design that best represents your project. For this reason, we offer unlimited revisions until you are completely satisfied with the design, materials, size, and colors.
Once a digital proof is made, we will send you the proof and quote via email. Feel free to respond with any design changes you'd like to see. Once you approve your design and payment is made, patch production begins.
A roll of stabilizer material, such as twill (mesh), is used as the base and the shape is die-cut. A patch edge is added to keep the twill from fraying. A merrowed border is either sewn around the entire edge of your patch or wraps around the back. If you choose a hot cut border, a heated gun cuts out the patches from the roll. Finally, with a process of heat sublimation, your design is then heat pressed onto the blank die-cut patch.
The final step is adhering to your choice of attachment backing to your patch.

Do you have a minimum quantity of patches that has to be ordered?
Yes, there is a minimum quantity of 100 patches per design. We can create a smaller batch of patches but there is a $55.00 under-minimum fee as well as an increase in the patch unit cost. We can offer as few as 50 patches per design, if you are willing to pay the additional costs.
Does iron on backing help patches stay in place?
Iron On backing is durable. It’s meant to last. It adheres to most fabrics and can handle most washing machines and dryers (50-70 wash and dry). We can send you more specific Iron On instructions per your request.
How many colors can my patch have?
We offer up to 7 thread colors for FREE with every patch order. Additional colors are only 10 cents extra per color. This allows you to have the exact patch you want! We don’t place a restriction on the total number of colors featured on your patch.
How do I measure my patch design so I can calculate the size and cost of my patch?
To get the size of your patch, you need to follow a simple calculation of (Height + Width) / 2. Add together the largest height and the largest width of your patch and divide that number by two. Simple as that!
