Pressing Instructions

Click here to watch our 3D Embroidered Pressing Instructions tutorial.

To ensure your patch looks professionally pressed every time, follow these four simple steps.

  1. Position Your Patch: Being that your patch will be pressed facing down, touching the bottom plate, you will first need to secure the patch to your garment with Thermal Tape (heat resistant tape) to ensure it stays in its desired location when being placed on your heat press.
  2. Load Garment Onto Heat Press Face Down: Now that your patch is taped in place, flip the garment over and place onto the heat press so the patch is facing downwards and touching the lower plate. This makes it easier to melt the low-melt glue on the back of the patch so that the patch will adhere to your garment. The goal is to melt the low-melt glue on the back of the patch, not the visible portion of the patch you’ll see when it’s adhered to the garment. 
  3. Press: After laying the garment with the patch face down, lay a Protective Guard Sheet over it to protect your garment from the iron, then press for 25 seconds at 325°F with 70-80 PSI or hard pressure. After pressing, remove the garment from the press and allow it to cool for at least 30 seconds before removing the thermal tape. This allows the melted glue to solidify, thereby bonding it to your garment.
  4. For Thicker Fabrics (Hoodies, Jackets, Etc.): If after following these instructions, the patch isn’t adhering to your garment, it could be because the garment you’re using is made of thick material, such as a hoodie, jacket, etc. If this is the case, tape your patch to the garment and flip the garment inside out. Then, lay the garment onto the heat press so that the back of the patch is facing up. Lay a piece of parchment paper over the garment and press for 25 seconds at 325°F with 70-80 PSI or hard pressure.

Art Upload Recommendations

All file types accepted, vector files are always preferred, raster art should be at least 300 DPI.

Care Instructions

To ensure the longevity and maintain the integrity of your patch, follow the care instructions below:

  • Washing: Turn the garment inside out before washing. Use cold or lukewarm water, select a gentle cycle, and a mild detergent. Avoid hot water, bleach, and fabric softeners to prevent weakening the adhesive and fabric. Patches from Ninja Patches are built to last up to 50 wash cycles.
  • Drying: Air dry the garment or use a low heat setting on your dryer. Avoid high heat as it can cause the patch to shrink or the adhesive to weaken.

3D embroidered patches are textile embellishments that are crafted using a specialized embroidery technique to create a three-dimensional effect. Unlike traditional flat embroidered patches, these patches have a raised, textured surface that adds depth and dimension to the design. They are a popular choice for adding a tactile and visually striking element to various types of clothing, accessories, and promotional items.

  • Eye-Catching Appearance: The raised, textured surface of 3D patches makes them stand out and adds a unique visual appeal to garments or accessories.
  • Durability: These patches are known for their durability, making them suitable for items that may undergo wear and tear.
  • Customization: They can be customized with intricate designs, colors, and sizes, making them ideal for brand logos, team emblems, or personal statements.
  • Versatility: Custom 3D embroidered patches can be applied to a wide range of items, including hats, jackets, bags, and uniforms, allowing for versatile branding and personalization options.

3D embroidered patches can be applied to a variety of fabrics, including cotton, polyester, denim, and more, much like our other custom patches. However, it's important to consider the fabric's thickness and texture when selecting these patches. Thicker and more rigid fabrics tend to showcase the three-dimensional effect better than thinner, stretchier materials.

Attaching 3D embroidered patches is simple and easy with any type of clothing and accessories. Our most popular method of applying 3D embroidery is with a heat press which offers long-term durability. You can also choose our press and stick option, suitable for one time use.

The lifespan of custom 3D embroidered patches largely depends on factors such as the quality of materials, the attachment method, and the level of wear and tear. When properly attached and cared for, these patches can last for many years. Sewn-on patches tend to be more durable than those attached with adhesive. Regularly inspecting and reinforcing the stitching can extend their lifespan.

3D embroidered patches are generally resistant to mild exposure to water, but they are not entirely waterproof. Excessive moisture and frequent submersion may damage the patches over time. They can be safely washed along with the garment or accessory they are attached to, but it's advisable to follow care instructions to ensure their longevity. Hand washing or using a delicate cycle is often recommended to protect the patches and the fabric they are on.
