Form & Function! Create Custom Removable Patches

Many of us are familiar with sew-on or iron-on patches. However, there are several different ways to affix a patch to your favorite garments. Removable patches offer a unique way to show off your passion and style while allowing you the freedom to apply them to other items such as clothing and accessories. At, we offer several different attachment options for removable patches. Velcro backing is popular, while tape backing and button loops also allow you to easily remove and apply your patches. We examine the uses of the custom removable patches and dive deeper into each selection mentioned above. 

Removable patches are great for several reasons. They are a great way to advertise your business, making your brand more recognizable every time it's seen. They are also ideal for promoting teams and clubs. Patches for sports teams, school clubs, and other organizations add a nice touch to any uniform, jacket, or even backpacks. Your logo will show your pride while building your brand's image. Removable patches can be used to add a touch of personality to your style as well. You may wear them on anything, offering something unique for jeans, shirts, vests, bags, and more. You don’t have to choose a patch that will permanently stay; removable patches allow you to get creative with anything you wear or carry. 

First, let's discuss the most popular removable patch backing, velcro. Velcro is an excellent choice for custom patches that need to be quickly removed or applied. They are popular in the military for morale patches; however, they are also perfect for the uniforms of firefighters and police officers around the country. By far the most common removable option, velcro supplies a durable hold, and it will also add to the life of your patches. 

Next up, tape backing. This alternative isn't quite as popular as velcro; however, it's a great way to enhance any piece of clothing without altering it permanently. Tape backing is secure, allowing the flexibility to showcase your patch across a range of garments. Tape backing can also be an exceptional option to hold your patch in place for sewing. No matter what clothing you decide to accessorize, tape backing is a secure and easily removable way to add some style. 

Last but not least, the button loop. The button loop attachment also allows you to change your patch from one garment to another. The attachment uses a simple loop on the patch, which is placed around a button on the item. This attachment offers the freedom to put your patches on almost any shirt, jacket, or accessory of your choosing.
