Printed Patches

Technology has, once again, made it possible to create higher-quality patches. Printed patches are unique in that the entire design is printed, giving you the ability to make high-definition patches. Have you ever wanted a patch with your favorite picture on it? We can make that for you in full photo-quality detail with our custom printed patches.

Custom Printed Patches

Printed patches make it possible to create high-definition, photo-quality patches without a single piece of thread or leather used. It uses a new technology to print patches onto thermal transfer material that you can use to iron the patch onto whatever surface you want. That means nearly anything that you want to put a patch on, we can make a patch for you!

Why Choose Printed Patches?

There are several reasons why printed patches are the best choice for anyone that wants a highly detailed patch that is versatile enough to go anywhere. Printed patches are very different from other types. For example, they don’t need thread to apply to a surface. Even leather patches need at least some thread  to be attached. While minor, sewn them on does cause a bit of wear on the item you attached it to. Printed patches do not have this problem. 

Custom printed patches are one of the most detailed options that you can get. Unlike other methods, there are no physical barriers to adding extremely fine details. In fact, printing patches means that you can create those fine details with a photo-quality finish. This makes it possible to create a patch with nearly any design.

Customization Options

Aside from the already great benefits of printed patches, there are several ways that you can upgrade your designs. 

#1: Add Pictures

Printing these patches means that they are only limited by the capabilities of the printer. You can take a photo of someone that you care about, and turn it into a patch. Imagine firehouses having patches made for their fallen friends. It's possible with printed patches! 

#2: Take Advantage of Clean Wording

When you design a patch, you want it to say something important. The words that you put on it matter a great deal. In fact, they can add depth to the meaning of your patches. Fortunately, printed patches have some of the cleanest word printing possible for patches. Make every patch say something in crystal clear print. 

#3: Wash It Clean

Keeping your patches clean can be a challenge if you wear them often. Printed patches can withstand washing several times before showing any signs of wear. Keep it clean and it will last a long time.
