Unlike embroidered patches, the name, design, or photo is permanently dyed into the cloth by the same process that swimsuits and colorful sportswear use. This means you can get unlimited colors and extremely fine detail. Also, the patch edges and patch background can be dyed to a perfect match.

Our customers like the low minimum of ONE patch, that the patches are 100% made in the USA, and the detailed clean look with no threads to fray. Prices start at $11.95 for a single patch to as low as $3.25 for 100+ custom patches. See the complete price list below.

Our specialty is the attention we give to your image to make each customized patch look its best. We send proofs to ensure your satisfaction with your personalized fabric patches. See our chart of sizes/shapes/edges and prices below, or go straight to our secure shopping cart to order your custom patch today.

I got my patches today. First of all, thank you for the extra-fast shipping! That was great. I also have to say this about the patches... WOW! I was a little leary after your warning that they weren't embroidered. I was even more nervous when I got the mail and the envelope seemed inordinately thin. (ordered 2 patches) Before I opened it, I was beginning to think they weren't even cloth. But, when I saw them I was in awe. The patches by themselves look great and the lettering is even better. Love the shadowed text. I can see why they're catching on. Again, thanks for a great product. It was worth every penny! S.B., CO

The patches look great. We still marvel over the nice job you did with our drawing! E.S., NY

What are dyed patches?

  • Fabric patch with satin-stitched edge, customized with your logo or personalized
  • Image is permanently DYED into patch, not embroidered or stitched
  • Made with the same permanent dye process as colorful polyester clothing
  • Machine washable and dryable, scrubbable, dry cleanable
  • "Feminine", "masculine", or block font available for names, or use a custom font - see font samples
  • Fabric glues available for the sewing-challenged - choose washable/dryable or washable/dryable/drycleanable
  • Iron-on backing available

Are they durable?

The design is molecularly bonded with the fabric, so they are extremely durable. Customer tests report you can do anything to the patches - scrub them, launder them, expose them to salt water, wear them in the rain - they do fail the broil test, however.

If you can go out in the rain wearing polyester, you can do the same with our patches. The image will not run or bleed because it is permanently dyed into the fabric. The image will not scratch off as in screen printing or get snagged as in embroidery because it is molecularly bonded, subsurface.

Why would I want these rather than embroidered patches?

  • Can order smaller quantities, as low as one patch
  • Unlimited colors and gradients available
  • Extremely fine detail
  • Edges and background can match exactly
  • No threads to fray
  • Clean-looking text without thread between the words

We Do Not Make Embroidered Patches

Below are photos of embroidered patches we were asked to reproduce, with the embroidered on the left and our dye sublimation versions on the right. We sometimes add drop shadows to text to simulate three-dimensionality. Note that the lettering is actually more readable and the map is more accurate and detailed in our dyed version.

Some companies pride themselves on how rough a sketch they can turn into a beautiful patch. Although we are quite skilled with our software, we expect art to be in usable form because we do not charge a setup or art fee or require a minimum order.  We will gladly do minor touch-ups, enhancements, and text resets, but we do not create art from scratch or from rough pencil sketches.

We will email back a proof before making your patches. Most products take 2-7 days to make. If you have a deadline, please fill in the must-receive-by date on the shopping cart so we can keep your needs visible as we work.
