At Monterey Company, adding a patch to a hat is what we do best! Specializing in PVC patches, we enhance the customization process by adding a sewing channel along the border for easy attachment to hats.

Adding Patches To Products
The quick answer is yes! PVC patches can be applied to hats, backpacks, and similar products using a heat press at medium pressure and heat. We're experts at applying this style of patch to headwear and can help you with temperature settings and ways for you to DIY it yourself with an iron but this can be tricky as you might melt your patch. We are here for whatever method you choose.
We do recommend creating a sewing channel and sewing them on for a more durable solution, though we're well-versed in both methods. This allows the patch to be easily removed and attached to different garments or hats. Enhancing items like bags for identification and adding a unique flair to apparel and outdoor gear.
Heat Pressing Silicone Patches
Silicone is a stretchable material which makes it a great choice for garments needing to be flexible. Silicone has a higher resistance to heat and a softer feel, especially if added to a shirt where it will be in contact with your skin. It can handle heat press temperatures of up to 200 degrees Celsius vs. 45 degrees with PVC. Both options are waterproof, but PVC will be less expensive and possibly a better choice for headwear.
Our silicone transfers are heat-pressed directly onto the cap and give it an amazing finish. The different thicknesses range from 0 - 2 mm, which allows you to find the perfect design for your project!
What Are the Best Options For Your Patch?
The possibilities to customize PVC patches are endless when you upgrade with optional add-ons. PVC patches are an excellent choice for outdoor activities because they're not only waterproof but also highly durable. They are resistant to intense heat and cold without tearing up or popping off your garment!
