What are sublimated patches ideal for?

Sublimated patches are a great accent for almost any item. They’re a great option for hats, backpacks, and jackets, and anything that needs a logo or decoration but is too awkward or bulky for embroidery or screen printing. They’re also a terrific workaround when artwork has a lot of colors, gradients, or fades, making it difficult to reproduce correctly with other decoration techniques. This digitally-printed method of decoration can create photo-quality prints, which can then be transferred to an emblem. The most complicated and colorful artwork can be printed with ease.

A sublimated patch can be a great option for uniforms or corporate wear, particularly if the company changes owners regularly, as patches can be removed. Sublimated patches are also great brand-building tools, as they allow the addition of branding to almost any item of apparel.

Keep in mind that the ability to withstand high heat is not necessarily a qualification for the use of sublimated patches. This in no way precludes sewing the finished patch on the item to be decorated.
