Sew-on embroidered patch backing refers to a type of backing used on embroidered patches that requires sewing for attachment. Unlike hook and loop backing or adhesive backing, sew-on patches are typically secured to garments or other surfaces by stitching.
Iron-on embroidered patches are patches that feature a backing material with an adhesive layer that can be activated by heat. This adhesive allows the patch to be attached to a fabric surface by applying heat and pressure with an iron or heat press.
Hook and loop patches, also known as Velcro patches, are patches that utilize a hook and loop fastening system for attachment. They consist of two components: the hook side and the loop side.
Hook and loop patches offer a versatile and reusable method of attachment. They can be easily attached and detached from compatible surfaces without the need for sewing or ironing. This allows for easy customization, repositioning, and swapping of patches on different items.
