How to Make Patches for Your Hat
There are plenty of techniques to make your own patch. The mos common one is embroidering directly to a piece of fabric.
Otherwise, in the case you require a larger quantity it will be better and easier for you to work directly with a US based wholesale patch maker like Sienna Pacific.
For those ones in the quest for a reliable, high quality supplier, here it is our step by step guide.
- Design your patch
First of all you need to have your patch designed (Download our Patch Design Template). Send your logo or what you want it to look like.
Ideally customers will send a vectorized design, made in Adobe Illustrator, Corel Draw, Inkscape (free open source alternative) or using a web app like Vectr or Vecteezy.
However, you can also send any type of image files explaining how you want your logo to be made. Anyhow, it is best to learn first the following design options.
- Select your material
Each type of technique and material allow different options. Only embroidered, woven, leather and printed patches allow iron on backing. While PVC allows layers and square (2D) or round (3D) edges woven and embroidery don’t. (Learn more about PVC vs Embroidered Patches)
- Determine the size that better suits your needs
The size will depend on the place of your garment you want it to be. Fill free to order them the size you want from 0.5″ to 17″. However, 2.5″ Is Great For Hats and/or snapbacks!
- Know your color options according to the type of patch
We will match your design colors to the color threads available. For Soft rubber patches we work with any type of the PMS color palette. Nevertheless, only a printed process (offset printing and sublimation) support real gradients.
- Select your backing
As the best way for attaching patches is by sewing them on, it is quite logic to use plain backing. Although it is important for you to know that peel and stick and iron-on backing can easy the process of placing them before sewing. Hook and Loop hat patches are a great option for those who need to frequently remove their patch (as the military or airsoft teams).
Direct embroidery and screen printing have been the most common and popular ways of adding your logo to your hats. But embroidered hats are not the only option you have…
With those two traditional methods, you are limited to:
–The options of caps your embroidery / screen printing supplier has, their available colors and styles.
–The possibility or not of their machinery’s capabilities of fitting your hat of choice on their ‘logo area’.
Using a patch, you have the freedom of adding your design onto almost any piece of clothing, being hats, jackets, backpacks, shirts, almost anywhere!
You can attach it to the front panels of your hats, even those low profile ones, or on the sides or back of the cap…
You are in the driver’s seat!
Yes they are! If you prefer, you can also have printed or leather patches attached to your hats, and that’s the beauty of having us custom made them for you, you can use the style and look that best matches your brand.
No you don’t. We can add iron-on, adhesive.. What about some Hook and Loop?.
That will make it easy!

The Best Size for a patch hat is anywhere between 2.25″-3″. Bear in min that the height of most caps is a max of 2.5″, and about 3.5″ width, so anything larger than that will be a problem.
–Patch Sizes for Tactical Hats:
Usually the Loop Area on Hats is about the size of a standard American Flag Patch, 3″x2.5″. We recommend our customers to stick with this as the maximum size for your patch.
Your patch, your shape! We will make your design in the custom shape of your logo, from the most common circles and rectangles, to almost anything you can imagine!
Yes we do. Ask your Customer Sales Representative for our special rates for Active Duty Military. Thank You For Your Service!
Unfortunately, not. We create high quality products and give a lot of attention to detail. But because of the effort it takes to setup, digitize or mold/making, and the manufacturing processes, it is almost impossible for us to offer competitive prices at quantities less than 100, in any of our patch styles.
