    The Advantages and Disadvantages of Embroidered Patch Backings

    If you’re thinking about purchasing an embroidered patch that is custom made to suit your needs, you must first know what the most ideal backing material for your design. You also need to know the quality of the garment and the length of time the patch backings will last.

    Depending on the process, here are the three types of patch backing.

    1. Iron-On Backing with Heat Sealing.
    2. Velcro Backing with Hooks and Loops.
    3. Adhesive Backing with Stick-On or special adhesive.

    Before you make a decision, I will write down the advantages and disadvantages associated with each of them.

    Iron-On Backing

    When you use iron-on backing on your patch, you will only receive a temporary security, because it won't last long. This backing is ideal for ceremonial and casual clothing, but never uses it for any kind of exercises or training. They are mostly used to securely place the patch during the sewing process, so iron-on backing is not the best choice if you want to use it for your active lifestyle purposes.

    Advantages and Disadvantages:

    • Ideal for ceremonial purposes.
    • Avoid heavily worn.
    • Avoid frequent cleaning.

    Velcro Backing

    Velcro backing has two styles of the backing material. Hook-sided for males and Two-sided for both males and females. Hook-sided is the best choice when you need to change new patches frequently or other small adjustments like in the case of military and police uniforms. But if a loop fastener isn't attached on the clothing, we can use two-sided Velcro backing in the process.

    As in Iron-on, Velcro backing also has advantages and disadvantages:

    • More durable. You can remove the patches before cleaning so they last longer.
    • Greater Flexibility. The patches can be easily removed and reattached anytime.
    • The only disadvantage is because Velcro patches are attached loosely.

    Adhesive Backing

    The most popular and familiar kind of backing used for embroidered patches is adhesive backing. It's very convenient and the backing process is very easy. Today, this is the most ideal choice for short-term events. Adhesive backing is the best choice for one-time event, but it has its own disadvantage if you want to use for a long time.

    The advantages and disadvantages of adhesive backing are below:

    • Easy to use on any garment.
    • Ideal patch backing for a short time span.
    • Stay away when the patchwork is required to remain permanent.

    patch-attachBeacon Patch Attach is a special kind of glue that can offer an extra way to add patches onto clothing and garments. The glue joins any kind of fabric you may think of and there will be no need to sew. It is washable, non-toxic and can be removed easily when subjected to heat. Most important is this glue will keep your patches permanent.

    But among all of the methods above, the most ideal of attaching patches is by sewing them onto a garment. When sewn, the patch remains attached on the cloth for a long period of time. Experts claim that it can even last for decades.
