Leather Patch with Adhesive Backing
Now offering Leather Patches with Adhesive Backing for clients with the ability to heat press in house.
ALPCo Adhesive Leather Patches are prepared with a heat activated adhesive backing. Various heat presses can work to activate the adhesive backing but settings will differ between each machine. We will include a few extra patches for some test runs to find your ideal settings.
Authentic Leather Patch Co. will not be liable for damages to garment or hats while using this product.

Can I add stitching to the patch?
Authentic Leather Patch Co. has not tested stitching with the adhesive backing. If you would like a patch with stitching, please place a traditional order with us and we'd be happy to help from start to finish. We will not add stitching to patches with adhesive backing.
How do I figure out the settings on my particular machine?
We suggest starting with the manufactures settings and adjust from there. We have added a couple extra patches in your order to help find the appropriate settings.
Can you guys heat press these patches on our hats?
These are meant for the shops or individuals with the ability to heat press patches themself. We are sticking to what we do best, and that is stitched leather patch hats, so we will not be offering heat press services.
