Pressing Instructions

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 20 seconds at 360°F with 40-50 PSI or medium 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.

Satisfaction Guarantee

We stand behind the quality of the patches we create for you. If you are not satisfied, we will reprint with a new or revised file at no additional charge.

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.

Custom chenille varsity jacket patches are personalized accents designed to highlight personal achievements, group affiliations, or specific interests. These soft, textured patches often feature symbols like school initials, athletic logos, and graduation years. They are generally sewn onto jackets, allowing wearers to commemorate personal triumphs and showcase team unity. Favored by students and athletes, these varsity jacket patches add unique style to letterman jackets, celebrating individual and collective accomplishments with distinction.

Custom varsity jacket patches are expertly crafted using the chenille technique, where layers of plush yarn are sandwiched between two sturdy fabric backings. Each patch is precisely stitched to secure the yarn, which is arranged in carefully selected colors and thicknesses to achieve the intended design. This meticulous process results in a textured, eye-catching appearance that enhances the distinctiveness of any letterman jacket.

You can apply custom varsity jacket patches simply with a heat press - follow our pressing instructions for garments for more details. We design our patches so that they’re easy to apply. You can also apply them with an iron - view our iron on pressing instructions.
