Our Custom Iron On Patches Are Easy to Apply
Custom iron on patches are perfect for people who are looking for an easy way to apply their patches. With our special heat-activated backing, all you’ll need to attach your patches is an iron (although a heat press is recommended.) These embroidered patches can be made in nearly any shape or size. They’re perfect for Scouts, sports uniforms, your business logo, or simply to mend clothing.
Our custom iron on patches work best on fabrics like denim, cotton, and polyester blends. As a rule of thumb, we suggest you make sure the material you’re attaching your patch to is at least as heavy as the patch material. If you’re not sure which type of custom patches you need (embroidered, woven, or dye sublimation), talk to our design experts. We can help!

How Do Iron On Backings Work?
All of our custom iron on patches ship free throughout the U.S. Our patch designs use heat seal backings to apply to different garments. Heal seals are incredibly easy to use. All you need is a household iron or heat press machine. All of the custom iron on patches we offer are made with the highest quality glue to ensure they’re able to be washed, worn and even dry cleaned without coming loose.
Because they’re so durable, we do not have any care recommendations outside of the ones featured on your garment. You should only be cautious about washing your patch designs at a high temperature, as this could result in the glue loosening.
How to Iron a Patch Using a Heat Press
- Set the heat press machine between 360 and 370 degrees Fahrenheit.
- Apply your patch in the desired location and cover with a sheet of wax paper.
- Use a 40 PSI foam under your garment while applying pressure for approximately 18 seconds.
- Let your design cool before enjoying your freshly ironed patches!
How to Iron on a Patch With a Household Iron
- Set your iron to its hottest setting.
- Lay your garment flat on the ironing board and ensure there are no wrinkles. For denim jackets, flatten the material as much as possible to ensure a smooth application.
- Place a piece of cloth on top of your clothing to prevent it from being burned.
- Preheat the desired application area with the iron for around 10 seconds.
- Position your iron on patch, cover it with a cloth and apply firm pressure for at least 60 seconds.
- Repeat the ironing process again to ensure the glue has adhered to the garment.
- Repeat the process to the other side of the garment, using the cloth over the fabric to prevent any damage.
- Wait until the glue and fabric have completely cooled and set before enjoying your one-of-a-kind custom iron on patches!
Steps to Order Your Custom Iron On Patches
We’ve simplified the order process to ensure you get your custom iron on patches easily. There’s no technical jargon to decipher, and we handle all of the hard work. You just need to submit a design that we’ll review and help you modify if necessary prior to creating your custom iron on patches.
Step 1: Request a Free Quote
Fill out our free quote request form to get started! We’ll need to know how many iron on patches you would like to order, the desired size and we’ll take a look at your design.
Step 2: Confirmation
After reviewing the details you provided, we’ll reach out to you with a written confirmation of your order and request your payment information and billing details. For orders that are under $1,000, we do not require any payment until we are able to ship your custom iron on patches.
