Pressing Instructions

Click here to watch our Full Color Printed Patch 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 15 seconds at 360°F with 40-50 PSI or slightly 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 15 seconds at 360°F with 40-50 PSI or slightly 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.

Yes, our full color printed patches are machine washable. However it’s important to make sure that they are washed on a cool setting with mild detergent to ensure long-term vibrancy and durability. If you opt for the press and stick, this is designed for one time use and are unlikely to be machine washable. 

The minimum order requirement for our full color printed patches is 25. 

There are generally no size and shape limitations for any type of patch on our site, however, we do provide some general guidelines to make the most out of your full-color printed patches. 

We offer between 1” and 9” patch widths for this product, with some in-between sizes like 1.5”, 2.5”, 3.5”, and 4.5” to allow for better application on different types of garments and accessories. The patch size that you choose will depend on what you are pressing onto. For example, if you decide on custom patches for hats, then the patch size will be much smaller than if you were looking at patches for backpacks, which naturally have a much larger surface area. 

If you want a specific height and width for your patch, then simply leave a note for our designers and we’ll make sure to create this for you. 

In terms of shape, we offer circle, square, rectangle, and oval shapes as standard, and these are the most common choices for full-color printed patches. We do also offer the option for custom patch shapes to suit any design! 

Yes, you can. If you want a specific color from your design translated to the final result, then make sure to leave a special note for our designers, who will be happy to make sure that this is created for you. If there are ever any issues with meeting your design, then we’ll be sure to reach out to you to discuss your options.

Yes, our full color printed patches are machine washable if heat-pressed on. However, proper care and maintenance are vital in ensuring that the patches remain vibrant and applied long-term. 

Make sure that they are washed on a cool setting with mild detergent to avoid any premature lifting and to keep the application sturdy.

If you opt for the press-and-stick application method, this is not machine-washable. These patches are designed for one-time use and may detach from the garment or accessory when washed, as water can cause the adhesive to become less effective.

They’re photo realistic and vibrant, with full colors making them pop.
