How Much Does a Custom Patch Cost?
It is normal to wonder about the cost of a custom embroidered patch. However, the reality is that there is no standard price for a custom patch. This is because each custom patch is different every time. As a result, this means that the cost of the patch will be based on the size of the patch, since it is understandable that a small patch will cost less than a larger patch. Also, the intricacy of the design will impact the cost of the custom embroidered patch. A patch that is simplistic will cost less than one that has a lot of fine details. Furthermore, the number of colors in the patch will impact the price. Consider that when a patch is large, it takes more time and thread to produce. This is the reason why the cost will also be impacted. In addition, the number of patches that you order will also determine how much you will pay.

Should I Sew or Iron on Patches?
The decision is really up to you whether you will sew on or iron on your custom patch. If you decide to iron your patch onto a bag, jacket, shirt, or other items, the patch will not be reusable in most cases. But if you opt to sew the patch onto your shirt, bag, jacket, or other items, then the patch can be removed with care and reused for another item. If you decide to iron your patch onto an item, the custom embroidered patch will be able to last for around twenty-five washes. Most people do not wash their jacket twenty-five times during the life of their jacket, though they do wash it some. Thus, if you iron the patch on, it should last on the item for six to eight years if you wash the item only two or three times per year and do not put the item in the dryer. The heat of the dryer destroys the adhesive of patches and causes them to fall off. If you are placing your patch on something that needs to be washed frequently, such as a shirt, jersey, sweater, or uniform, then you should stitch the patch onto the item to ensure longevity. A patch that is sewn onto an item that is only washed up to four or five times per year can last ten years or more. A patch that is sewn onto an item that is washed three to five times per week will last about three to five years.
