Patches have been a popular and unique symbol of identification used for military and other uniformed workers since the early 1800s. They signified rankings and accomplishments and were embroidered and sewn onto uniform sleeves.
Over time, patches went from serving a purpose to breaking barriers in the fashion world. These trendy designs translated across many decades and groups, helping to represent individuality. While you may think of patches as brightly colored embroidered designs on hats, jackets, or jeans, leather patches have been around just as long. They provide a unique, high-end look and offer extreme durability.
Maybe you’ve seen leather patches popping up on social media, in neighboring shops, or own a few decorated items yourself. Or maybe you have customers asking if this is something you can do.

6 thoughts on “The Latest Trend is a Heat Press Away”
Is there a way to press the leather patch without using a 360 IQ heat press. Are there any directions for that?
Yes you can apply leather without the 360. You will find directions on the Stahls’ website.
The key is to really heat the lower platen, whether it’s a hat or shirt press. You’ll want to increase the dwell time.
Are these patches available in Canada? Or ship to Canada?
Hi Nathan! Thank you for reading this post. We are striving for a launch on these in Canada end of September, or October. Stay tuned!
