Custom dyed patches with unlimited color and detail

 

If you want to put a photo on a patch, our dye sublimation patches are the only real answer.

Embroidery cannot reproduce the detail of a picture, but we can. Photo patches are popular to remember someone you love, living or deceased. You also can take a picture of a prized possession and have us put that on a photo patch. We have even reproduced a picture of a person's tattoo onto a fabric patch. Anything you can take a picture of, we can put onto a custom photo patch.

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.

What are dyed patches?

Are they durable?

The design is molecularly bonded with the fabric, so our custom patches 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 the patch as in screen printing or get snagged as in embroidery because it is molecularly bonded, subsurface.

Why would I want these dyed patches rather than embroidered patches?

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.

We ship our custom patches anywhere in the world.

If you have additional questions, you are welcome to call or write before placing your order.

Please do not submit crude or off-color designs or text, or images for which you do not hold the copyright. We will not make products we consider lewd, vulgar, or just generally inappropriate and we will refund your money
