Things to Keep in Mind


1. Heat transfer patch does not equal iron on.

Heat transfer patches are created via a process called dye sublimation, which means an image is printed onto a mesh backing using no thread at all. Iron On Patches means the patch has a shiny backing meant for heat attachment. Heat transfer patches with no iron on backing will not attach to your clothing via ironing.

2. PVC Patches does not equal PVC backing.

PVC patches are waterproof and weather resistant. They can be ordered with a hook and loop backing, or PVC backing, but NOT with an iron-backing. Do not attempt to iron on PVC patches or any patch with a PVC backing.

3. Sewing Your Patch

If you decide to sew your patch in place you may order PVC backing, hook and loop backing, or no backing at all. If ordering PVC patches, all PVC patches come with a recessed channel for you to sew along.

4. Temporary Patch Placement

For temporary patch placement, peel and stick, safety pin backing or an 8mm post is recommended.
