Things you should know about our Embroidered Iron on Patches
All our embroidered patches can be ironed on with the exception of blank patches. You'll notice a plastic iron on backing on the back of the patch. There is an invisible layer of iron on glue applied over this surface. It activates when a 270 degree heat is applied to it. When ironing on a patch your goal is to activate the glue and not melt the plastic. It's very important that you iron on a patch properly at the proper temperature. If you don't take the necessary steps to get to the right temperature setting your results will be less than satisfactory.
For some people, when they think of embroidered patches they think of the old patches that were not very detail oriented. However, in recent years there has been a distinct jump in the technology for making patches that has enabled them to make smaller and smaller patches that still feature many details and can be made in many different colors and styles. That means that you could have a patch that has many different parts and colors and it will still look wonderful. Not only that, but the smaller and more intricate designs that were not available just a few short years ago are now options.
There are also a variety of different styles of embroidered patches that were not around before. For example, you can get a number of different animal patches that look great. Or, if you prefer, you can get patches that are designed to remember our veterans and our soldiers. There is even a wider assortment of patches that are specifically geared toward women, like butterflies, skulls with bows, etc. If you want something to accentuate your outfit or accessories then you will be able to find the perfect patch for you.
The best thing about embroidered patches is that they can easily be attached to any type of material because they are coated with a heat activated adhesive. This means that the back of the patch has specialized glue that will bond with the fabric to make sure that the patch is firmly anchored. However, if you are putting the patch on something leather you will not want to iron the patch on because the heat from the iron could damage the leather by scarring or puckering it.
