Patch Sizing Options

Patches come in all shapes and sizes. We have done small patches for scouts and military uniforms, as well as larger patches for biker jackets and sports teams. We have the experience and knowledge to provide whatever size patch you need!

Determining the size of your custom embroidered patch is easy. Measure the length and width of your patch, add them together and divide that number by 2.

Determining Size

patch-measure (1)

If the length of your patch is 2″ and the width of your patch is 4″, you would add 2+4, which equals 6. You then divide 6 by 2, which equals 3. 3″ is the size of your 2″ x 4″ patch!

Patch Backing Options

We offer a choice of traditional sew-on backing, iron-on, button loops or Velcro. Each backing type has its advantages for specific uses. Our experienced staff can help you decide which type is best for your particular application.

Tape Backing

Easily removable, versatile, and less permanent than other backings, tape backing is great for when you need a quick option for a costume or outfit.

custom patches with velcro backing

Velcro Backing

Velcro backing allows you to quickly and easily remove your patch from a garment. Velcro is great for when you have multiple patches or need to be able to remove the patch often.

custom patches with plastic backing

Plastic Backing

A rigid plastic backing is added to your patches. This gives your patches extra support, meaning they will maintain their shape, even after constant use. This can be used in conjunction with iron-on backing.

iron on custom made patches

Iron On Backing

Allowing for quick and easy attachment, all you need is an iron. Simply place the patch on the garment, cover it with a thin, damp towel to prevent burning, then hold the iron over the patch for 20-30 seconds until fully secured.
