PATCH BACKINGS EXPLAINED:
- Sew-on Backing is perhaps the best way to adhere patches to any fabric and can be uséd for any wearable item indoors and out. Completely waterproof and is only subject to the strength of the thread uséd to sew the patch. This style of backing is permanent.
- Iron-on Backing is perfect for most light to medium weight fabrics that can withstand pressurized iron heat applied. Not recommended for fabrics that are constantly subjected to water or heavy outdoor use. This backing is permanent depending on use and regularity of washing.
- Peel-n-Stick Backing is perfect for fabrics as well as other surfaces (wood, metal, etc.). This backing does not require any ironing, but unless applied to a solid surface is only a semi-permanent backing and may come loose over an extended period of time (dependent on washing and fabric/material type).
- VELCRO® Brand Backing (Adhesive Hook & Loop) will adhere to almost any surface. It is completely weatherproof and offers the flexibility of easy removal and re-application on to the surface. We utilize an industrial strength glue backing to ensure adhesion.
