Where Can You Use Iron on Patches?
Why Custom Iron-On Patches?
When choosing the appropriate custom patch style, sometimes you hear: iron on embroidered patches but, what are they exactly?
Basically, in order to attach a custom made embroidered patch, to your clothes, you have few options:
- Sew it: You will need to leave the necessary “room” in the patch design, in order to have the right space for the seem.
- Iron it: There is no need of any extra space on the design, just iron it to the clothes.
- Iron it – Then Sew it: If you want to be absolutely sure, and/or the clothes you are attaching them to are going to be heavily used, it could be a good idea to combine both processes, to give more stability.

Frequently Asked Questions & Product Information
You sure can! Some of our customers use the iron on as a way of “getting it almost ready”, and then they sew them around the border, for peace of mind. ( Although you don’t have to sew them on, unless they are going to be washed frequently and you want to make sure the patch won’t fall off )
You certainly can! Just make sure you put a cotton cloth on top of the patch before iron it on. Keep the heat at a medium setting and do not press onto the leather.
If you don’t know how to sew, or don’t have the time or patience to do it, then by all means ironing it on will be better for you.
But if you really want to make sure that patch will not fall of your clothing item, then by all means, grab a needle and some colorful thread and stitch that little patch on.
For example, for a name patch you can choose to have a customized embroidery job, send you shirts to the embroidery company and have them do the job, or you can choose your own shirts and iron on the name patch to those shirts and maybe a hat or jacket.
Yes, you can wash them in the washing machine, just remember to turn the item inside out to protect the patch, and use a light/ short washing cycle with cold water. Do not put it in the dryer.
Iron on backing is easily distinguished from any other type of backing (if it looks like a fabric or like hook and loop, then it is not iron on), except plastic backing. Plastic Backing and Iron-on begin with the same raw material: plastic, but they have a thin coat of heat-activated adhesive.
So if it looks like it is plastic backing, try to iron-it on in a small surface area of the patch.
