Really, anyone who has a jacket can add a patch to it. It doesn’t matter if it’s your brand-new school jacket or an old aviator jacket you picked up at a thrift store.
Our embroidered patches for jackets are particularly popular with motorcyclists. Bikers like to add motorcycle patches to leather jackets to help others identify them and show their pride. During the summer, they often use motorcycle vest patches; Morale Patches also used as patches for jackets.
These patches are also commonly purchased by people and organizations for use on uniforms. They are placed on military jackets(Military Patches), army jackets(Army Patches), police jackets(Police Patches), EMT jackets, scouts jackets(Scout Patches), firefighter jackets(Firefighter Patches), and so on.
If you’re considering purchasing jacket patches, one big question you might ask yourself is “Where should I place the patches on my jacket?”
There are no hard and fast rules, but there are a number of commonly accepted best practices, depending on the type of jacket and the organization you’re with. The location where a patch is attached is called a placement.
Common patch placements for jackets include the following:
A large patch that is attached to the center of the back.
A small patch on either the right or left chest area—or both.
A small patch on either sleeve—or both sleeves.
Motorcycle patches on jacket backs have their own rules. Typically, there will be the following:
It is also popular to add customized motorcycle vest patches for use on vests worn during warmer weather.
There are several different ways to attach embroidered patches for jackets. You can iron them on(Iron on Patches), use Velcro, use adhesive patches, or simply sew them to the jacket. It all depends on the type of backing you choose.
What backing type is best for your jacket will depend on the type of material the jacket is made of. For example, iron-on patches work well on denim and cotton but have trouble sticking to leather, nylon, satin, vinyl, and some other fabrics.
The size of the patch matters, too. If you order large patches, it is highly recommended that you sew them on, as this is the strongest and most permanent way to attach patches. All sewn-on patches can be attached using a sewing machine.
One advantage to adhesive or peel-and-stick patches: the stickiness goes away after 4 to 6 uses, and then you can sew them on if you choose to do so.
Velcro patches or patches with Velcro backing good for chest or sleeve placement, but they are not recommended for the back of a jacket; sew on patches are the best for a jacket back.
Every customized patch we create at Houston Embroidery Service is held to the highest standards in the business and undergoes a rigorous 9-step quality control process.
