Cool Iron On Patches & Skull Patches

Patches for clothes have been around for years! From the military culture of ancient China to the counterculture of the 1970s punk scene, embroidered patches have long been used to display rank or simply as a fashionable addition. Eventually, as technology and new affordable material developed, wearers were given an easier option than hand-embroidered patches for clothing: iron on patches. These are easy to apply and come in plenty of styles.

Generally, as their name suggests, all you have to do is iron these patches into place wherever you want them to go. But, this isn’t your only option either.
