When it comes to creating custom patches, the type of patch you choose will affect the overall look and feel of your patches, but also the durability, longevity, and the patch's ability to stand up to weather and washing. StickerYou uses Printed Canvas Patches to provide you with high-quality, attractive, and long-lasting patches.
Printed Canvas Patches are more versatile than embroidered patches. When creating Printed Canvas Patches, your design or artwork is printed onto a durable canvas material and cut to shape. Colored thread of your choice is sewn around the edge of the patch increasing the durability. Printed Canvas Patches allow for more vibrant or complex or detailed images to be made into patches. You can even upload photographs or use gradients in your patch designs, which is NOT possible with embroidered patches.
There are no set-up charges, ink charges, or die-charges. To create your Printed Canvas Patches, simply upload your design, photo or choose from our gallery or artwork. Patches can be ordered in sizes up to 6" x 6".

Q: How do I apply my patch?
A: StickerYou’s custom patches are flexible in application. You can sew it on to the garment or stick it with the help of an iron. Make sure that you have a flat surface, preheat your iron to the hottest setting your material can handle, but with no steam. Then place transfer paper or a thin towel over your patch, iron the area where the patch is. After this, remove the towel/transfer paper and let the patch cool. Read our step-by-step instructions on patches’ application and removal here.
Q: What are the types of patches?
A: There are many types of clothing patches: embroidered, woven and printed patches are the most common. In embroidered patches, the custom design is embroidered with threads on a twill base. In woven patches, the thinner threads are used so they are stitched together in a continuous design, and don’t have additional garment base. In printed patches, an artwork design, photograph or text is printed with ink onto fabric.
Q: Why printed patches?
A: Printed patches are great for those who want their patches to be easy to create, order, apply and used multiple times. They have no color limitations, so your logo, photo or any other detailed artwork on patch will look the most closely to the original. Printed patches are more practical and long-lasting: they are completely washable, dry cleanable and fade-proof. Small text, color gradient and shades are clearly reproducible on printed patches – your clothing patch will look exactly how you want it. Printed patches weigh less than embroidered patches and have a flat and smooth surface, so they can be attached to particular garments without much difficulty. In general, printed patches are faster to produce in large quantities and much cheaper in cost.
Q: How can printed patches can be used?
A: You can use printed patches to personalize your own clothing items. Custom patches look great on denim jackets, shirts, hoodies, skirts, trucker hats and baseball caps, or on your tote bags, backpacks and luggage. They will never be confused with someone else’s!
You can use them to make your sport team stand out. Either big professional sport teams or small local amateur gatherings to have fun, whether you play hockey, baseball, rugby and soccer or MilSim like airsoft and paintball - our custom patches will make your team members feel more united.
Use custom patches to make your business look even more professional – create company logo emblems to stick on uniforms, order name badges for employees who face clients and customers. Make your sewing or knitting designed clothing to be identifiable at first view. We have more great ideas on how patches can be useful to your business in our blog!
